"The whole world is watching!" chanted the demonstrators in the Chicago streets in 1968, as the TV cameras beamed images of police cracking heads into homes everywhere. Acclaimed media critic Todd Gitlin first scrutinizes major news coverage in the early days of the antiwar movement. Drawing on his own experiences (he was president of the Students for a Democratic Society in 1963-64) and on interviews with key activists and news reporters, he shows in detail how the media first ignore new political developments, then select and emphasize aspects of the story that treat movements as oddities. He then demonstrates how the media glare made leaders into celebrities and estranged them from their movement base how it inflated the importance of revolutionary rhetoric, destabilizing the movement, then promoted "moderate" alternatives--all the while spreading the antiwar message. Finally, Gitlin draws together a theory of news coverage as a form of anti-democratic social management--which he sees at work also in media treatment of the anti-nuclear and other later movements [Publisher description].

New York Times Book Review Editor's Choice How do you learn to be a black man in America? For young black men today, it means coming of age during the presidency of Barack Obama. It means witnessing the deaths of Oscar Grant, Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Akai Gurley, and too many more. It means celebrating powerful moments of black self-determination for LeBron James, Dave Chappelle, and Frank Ocean. In Invisible Man, Got the Whole World Watching, Mychal Denzel Smith chronicles his own personal and political education during these tumultuous years, describing his efforts to come into his own in a world that denied his humanity. Smith unapologetically upends reigning assumptions about black masculinity, rewriting the script for black manhood so that depression and anxiety aren't considered taboo, and feminism and LGBTQ rights become part of the fight. The questions Smith asks in this book are urgent--for him, for the martyrs and the tokens, and for the Trayvons that could have been and are still waiting.

Megaevents bring big budgets, intense public scrutiny and legions of stakeholders. And looming over the entire project is that immovable deadline. Whether it's the Olympics, political conventions or massive citywide festivals, megaevents simply don't allow for scheduling slipups. This article discusses how megaevent project leaders can manage any megaevent. First, it looks at mitigating the opinions of stakeholders, noting that publicizing key milestones met along the way not only quells criticism, but it helps teams stay on track. It overviews how megaevent leaders must delegate responsibilities and trust their team to deliver the needed results. It then describes how the senior managing director for open championships and association relations for the U.S. Golf Association (USGA) (Far Hills, NJ, USA) manages the annual men's U.S. Open Championship. The article explores how hosting a megaevent can be costly but can also bring economic benefits to the host city. It then looks at how the CIO of the 2012 Democratic National Convention Committee in Charlotte, NC, USA, secured backup for every piece of equipment so all presentations could be delivered on schedule regardless of technical glitches. Since there are no second chances on megaevents, it's important to have alternative plans in place. The article also overviews the work planners must perform after the project is over, measuring the results of their efforts and recording lessons learned for the next time around. Accompanying the article are three case studies. The first case study explores how a Warsaw, Poland-based organization oversaw more than 450 projects leading up to the Euro 2012 football tournament. The second case study examines planning and implementing the multiple projects that composed the Taste of Chicago. The final case study discusses how a London-based event-management firm planned a temporary seating system for a royal rock concert held in conjunction with the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. Each case study details the project plan, highlights the challenges faced by the project teams and notes how these challenges were overcome.

On September 4, 1957, nine African American teenagers made their way toward Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. They didn t make it very far. Armed soldiers of the Arkansas National Guard blocked most of them at the edge of campus. The three students who did make it onto campus faced an angry mob. White citizens spit at them and shouted ugly racial slurs. No black students entered Central that day. And if the angry mob had its way, black children would never attend school with white children. But the U.S. Supreme Court had ruled in 1955 that school segregation that is, separate schools for black children and white children was unconstitutional. The Court ordered the nation s schools to be integrated. Nowhere was that process more hateful and more horrific than in Little Rock. Eventually, the nine students did make it into Central High under the protection of army soldiers. Once inside Central, they faced a never-ending torrent of abuse from white students. But the nine students persevered. Their courage inspired the growing movement for African American civil rights.
