ATROU From Head Shops to Whole Foods: The Rise & Fall of Activist Entrepreneurs-Josh Davis 11/17/17

Joshua Clark Davis is an assistant professor of history at the University of Baltimore, where he teaches and researches broadly in twentieth-century United States history, with a focus on capitalism, social movements, urban history, and African American history. His book, From Head Shops to Whole Foods: The Rise and Fall of Activist Entrepreneurs (Columbia University Press, 2017) examines how small businesses such as natural foods stores, head shops, feminist businesses, and African American booksellers emerged out of social movements and countercultures in the 1960s and ‘70s with the goal of advancing justice and equality in the marketplace. Josh's writing has appeared in the Washington Post, Slate, Jacobin, and Black Perspectives, and his research has been supported by fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Fulbright Scholar Program.
