Radical Volunteers

Dissent, Desegregation, and Student Power in Tennessee

«“Radical Volunteers offers the first comprehensive account of student activism in Tennessee. It is grounded in excellent archival research and brimming with insights into the struggle for racial justice, peace, and student power in a conservative state, whose leadership was often hostile to all those causes. Ballantyne's study makes a major contribution to our understanding of the South, higher education, and student protests in 1960s America, and ranks among the best of a new wave of historical studies attesting that the campus unrest of the Long '60s extended far beyond Berkeley, Columbia, and the other famed hotbeds of student radicalism.” - Robert Cohen (coauthor of Rethinking America's Past: Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States in the Classroom and Beyond)

Radical Volunteers is a meticulously researched work that uncovers stories not yet examined and applies a state-level focus that has not yet been attempted. This focus allows for a biracial analysis that makes it clear that, while Black and white student activists were motivated by a common desire for personal autonomy, race and racism divided the Tennessee student movement fundamentally.” - Jeffery Turner (author of Sitting in and Speaking Out: Student Movements in the American South)

Radical Volunteers is an illuminating, well-written, and important contribution to the study of student activism in the South.” - Ralph Young (author of Make Art Not War: Political Protest Posters from the Twentieth Century
