“Generations of Struggle” from Transition 119, features activists and scholars Percy Green II, Robin D. G. Kelley, Tef Poe, George Lipsitz, and Jamala Rogers with Elizabeth Hinton discussing more than five decades of black action in St. Louis, from the Civil Rights Movement to Black Lives Matter.
“I really appreciated this roundtable discussion published in issue 119. I liked the variety of voices and perspectives on such a timely and important topic. I also liked that the article included artwork as part of this perspective. The form of this article was especially appropriate given Tef Poe's point about how this movement has changed. Civil rights looks different now, is more inclusive and diverse.”
