In the final installment of this educational trilogy, Dr. Butler will start with the last major legislative victory of the mainstream movement - passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Yet activists soon realized that legal victories did not bring the degree of racial equality they hoped for, as the struggle againstde facto forms of segregation proved more deeply embedded - and more difficult to address - than they imagined. Dr. Butler will use his research on the Pensacola, Florida freedom struggle to demonstrate how the fight for racial equality continues into the twentieth first century and remains central in understanding the current culture wars.
