The myth of Black progress by Alphonso Pinkney( Book )

14 editions published between 1984 and 1990 in English and Italian and held by 1,303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this important analysis of the status of black Americans since the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Professor Alphonso Pinkey refutes the popular neoconservative stance that race is no longer a major factor in the efforts of black Americans to achieve socioeconomic parity. Instead, Professor Pinkey argues, race continues to be an ever-present factor in American life. He bases his argument on detailed analysis of data that support his discussion of income and unemployment, the black middle class, the growing underclass and educational issues such as open admissions, busing and affirmative action
Red, black, and green : Black nationalism in the United States by Alphonso Pinkney( Book )

20 editions published between 1976 and 2011 in English and held by 783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the first slaves who rose up against their master in the early period of American history to the prominent modern figures such as Malcolm X, Elijah Muhammed, Eldridge Cleaver, Red, Black, and Green traces the origins, the struggles and the accomplishments of black nationalism. Its broad discussion of the ideology of black nationalism and of the conditions that gave rise to this ideology provides the foundation for a thorough account of the black nationalist movement in the peak years of its momentum, roughly the decade 1963 to 1973. The author deals both with specific milestones, such as Marcus Garvey's Universal Negro Improvement Association in the early twentieth century, and with the far-reaching implications of the movement for the black community and for the United States as a whole. He looks at the many facets of black nationalism - revolutionary nationalism, cultural nationalism, religious nationalism, and educational nationalism - analyses the relationship between this movement and liberation movements in general.--Publisher description

Lest we forget : white hate crimes : Howard Beach and other racial atrocities by Alphonso Pinkney( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

White Hate Crimes: Howard Beach and Other Racial Atrocities offers a timely examination of the barely discussed, but widely practiced phenomenon of white-on-Black Crime. Although the Civil Rights legislation of the 1950s and 1960s suggested a movement toward racial harmony, the rise of conservatism during the Ronald Reagan Administration helped to create a climate that not only reversed civil rights gains, but lead to a resurgence of hatred and violence toward people of color and the poor. Dr. Alphonso Pinkney presents a riveting, historical account of white racially motivated individual and mob attacks on Blacks during the 1980s. Documenting the striking parallels of these attacks as a return to Reconstruction Era and early 1900s race riot styled lynchings, Pinkney provides engaging profiles of the victims and their attackers, reviews the legal proceedings, analyzes the affects on the families and communities involved, and demonstrates the legal system's complicity in disrupting justice.--Publisher's description

African Americans NK04( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The African American Collection provides information on history, race relations, civil rights movement, culture and contemporary economic problems, circa 1620s to 2000s. Davis and Pinkey cover from the earliest days of slavery up to about 1970. Four documents deal with racial segregation and discrimination both prior to and immediately after the civil rights movements. Three documents feature in-depth portrayals of individual life histories, communities and families, and kinship networks and migration patterns. Two documents provide a theoretically complex discussion of race relations and opportunities in urban communities. Two recent documents address deconstructing erroneous representations of African Americans in scholarly discourse and public policy and education and popular culture. The remaining documents discuss the continuity of racial discrimination and class- and gender-based exploitation in the lives of African American women and artists

Contemporary Black Nationalism by Alphonso Pinkney( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The major differences between the cultural nationalists and the revolutionary nationalists stem from different ideological emphases, disagreement on the desirability of alliances and coalitions with white groups, and diverse views on the appropriateness of the use of revolutionary violence at the present time. They pose fundamental questions which have been debated through the years. Spokesmen for both of these camps make their points convincingly, and are confident that their approaches will ultimately lead to the liberation of black people in the United States. Unlike earlier black nationalist movements and leaders, especially the American Colonization Society and the Universal Negro Improvement Association, contemporary black nationalist groups and individuals reject emigration and concentrate on black liberation within the United States. Most of the spokesmen appear to be convinced that this goal can be achieved without the establishment of a separate nation-state within what is now the United States, but several demand partition. All of them agree, however, that some form of black autonomy (separation) is an essential first step in the movement for black liberation. It might lead to greater political awareness among blacks, and thereby promote greater solidarity. (Author/JM)
Black Americans. Ethnic Groups in American Life Series by Alphonso Pinkney( Book )

1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Relations between black and white Americans have never been amicable, but at few points in history have they been characterized by greater strain than they are now. This study attempts to present a complete picture of the status of black people in the United States at the present time. It begins with their first arrival in 1619 and continues up to the present crisis in race relations. The major emphasis of this sociological study has been placed on an analysis of the forces in American society which have been responsible for creating and maintaining the subordinate position of black people. The following topics are covered: (1) historical background; (2) characteristics of the population; (3) characteristics and development of the black community; (4) socioeconomic status; (5) social institutions; (6) social deviance; (7) black contributions to American life; (8) assimilation into American society; and, (9) the present and future status of blacks.
