2013 Wesley-Logan Prize
Martha Biondi, Northwestern Univ.
The Black Revolution on Campus (Univ. of California Press)
While US civil rights history has long acknowledged the numerous critical roles of students and other young people in the mid-20th-century era of civil rights struggle, no book until now has explored black campus-based activism with such multi-faceted and exquisite depth. Biondi has written a definitive history. This book will also have wide-ranging implications for those invested in shaping Africana studies curricula and black student experience on university campuses in the 21st century.
