From margin to mainstream: the social progress of Black Americans

Front Cover
Rowman & Littlefield, Jun 1, 1992 - Biography & Autobiography - 315 pages
This new edition, available in paperback for the first time, has been revised specifically with classroom use in mind. It incorporates recent research on aspects of black-white relations and introduces more of the empirical reality of racism as a balance against the rather extensive and important theoretical treatment. The introductory chapters tell of the outrage and outcry caused by the slave trade and slavery, and the transformation of this dissatisfaction into a social movement.
