Robyn Autry, J eanne T heoharis. Coming on the heels of her award-winning political biography of Rosa Parks, Jeanne Theoharis exposes and undoes the underpinnings of the popular discourse of the civil rights movement in A More Beautiful and Terrible History. Theoharis problematizes how the civil rights movement is understood by deconstructing some of its most iconic imagery and heavily invoked lessons, from a weary Rosa Parks refusing to leave her seat on the bus to the scope of the Brown v.
