520    "Traci Parker examines the movement to racially integrate 
       white-collar work and consumption in American department 
       stores and its neglected role in the mid-twentieth century
       black freedom movement. Built on the goals, organization, 
       and momentum of the 1930's 'Don't Buy Where You Can't 
       Work' Movement, the department store movement recruited 
       the power of store workers and labor unions, held behind-
       the-scene meetings with store officials in the postwar era,
       executed successful lunch counter sit-ins and selective 
       patronage programs in the 1950s and 1960s, and challenged 
       race discrimination in the courts in the 1970s. However, 
       with the conclusion of the Sears, Roebuck, and Co. 
       affirmative action cases, the movement effectively ended 
       in 1981"--|cProvided by publisher
