When someone mentions the Civil Rights Movement, t
When someone mentions the Civil Rights Movement, they probably first think of demonstrations such as Rosa Parks' famous bus ride or the March on Washington D.C. However, the movement goes back further than that, to the late 1890s, when Homer Plessy; was arrested for riding in a white-only railroad car because he was bi-racial. Plessy sued on the grounds that a Louisiana statute requiring segregated streetcars violated his right to equal citizenship under the 14th Amendment. (Wexler 6) His effort

Hamlet Brutal Truth Annonymous For decades, Guy Debord’s The Society of the Spectacle was only available in English in a so-called pirate edition published by Black Red, and its informative—perhaps essential—critique of modern society languished in the sort of obscurity familiar to political radicals and the avant-garde.
