Where Does the Story End?
This section concludes in examining the Louisville movement and seeks to extend this reconsideration of the nature of the movement. It points out that as a border city, Louisville was a place where northern and southern characteristics and racial problems overlapped and mixed. It explains that the story of its struggle for racial equality illustrates the insights of current scholarship, but more important, the Louisville movement reveals the persistent relationships across time and among people, issues, and strategies. It observes that participants in the movement recognized the links among issues, drew solace and support from their connections to other activists locally and across the nation, and moved easily from one campaign to another, utilizing whatever combination of strategies worked. Importantly, they remember their work as part of a larger and longer, indeed ongoing, struggle against indivisible and pervasive foe — racism in all its manifestations.
