All Black political movements in America's history were hailed as significant struggles of Blacks to achieve full equality. Reconstruction, Jim Crow, Civil Rights, Black Power, Black Lives Matter movement were signs of progressively more effective strategies, complimented themselves in history. They were complex events that took place in times transforming society and culture throughout the United States, Their resonance and legacy reflect that complexity. We live today in the legacy of political movements that occurred right after the Emancipation of slavery and before the turn of the century. We need to know and understand the networks that compose the many Black struggles that created movements that brought us to our current political struggles.
