Abstract:

This paper argues that communication scholars should broaden their areas of study by focusing on the community organizing tradition as well as the community mobilizing tradition. In the past scholars have focused on studies of individuals such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who epitomize the community mobilizing tradition. This study focuses on Robert Parris Moses and two movements which he has led. Moses's leadership epitomizes the community organizing tradition. His movements and discourse are off ered as alternatives to the community mobilizing tradition.
