Legal lynching : racism, injustice, and the death penalty by Jesse Jackson( Book )

3 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 1,012 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Legal Lynching is an impassioned rebuttal to advocates of the death penalty: legal executions are unjustly administered, are morally indefensible and fail to deter crime. A comprehensive rejection of the knee-jerk solution to the rise in violent crime, Legal Lynching comprises a history of state-sponsored execution, a consideration of the statistical evidence, an examination of scriptural justification for the taking of a life, and, most chilling, the true-life stories of those condemned to die who were later found to be innocent. With eloquent determination, Jackson examines the recent history of the death penalty. He reflects on high-profile cases, such as that of Mumia Abu-Jamal; assesses the state of the opposition movement; and reveals irrefutable discrepancies in the implementation of the death penalty based on race, class, sex, and geography. By giving lie to the notion that justice is administered blindly and fairly in the life-and-death cases, Jackson's exposition is an inspiring call to action

The two nations of black America by Henry Louis Gates( Visual )

3 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this Frontline report, correspondent Henry Louis Gates, Jr., a Harvard scholar, explores the gaping chasm between the upper and lower classes of black America and probes why it has happened: "How have we reached this point where we have both the largest black middle class and the largest black underclass in our history?" His personal essay draws a picture of growing black success along with the deepening black despair and argues that black upper classes now have more in common with their white colleagues and peers than with those they have left behind in the inner cities. Reviewing the thirty years that have passed since the death of Martin Luther King, Jr., Gates shows that while many blacks reaped the reward of the civil rights movement and affirmative action and gained middle class status, just as many were left behind in an expanding underclass of poverty. The program features interviews with prominent blacks such as Cornel West, William Julius Wilson and Maulana Karenga as well as civil rights veterans like Eldridge Cleaver, Angela Davis and Julian Bond. While they differ on historical interpretation, they all agree that the next phase of the black liberation struggle must be focused on economic deprivation and the class divide."--Container

Realizing the civil rights dream : diagnosing and treating American racism by Kenneth B Bedell( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book suggests that racism is a chronic disease that infects our culture. It has gone undiagnosed, wrongly diagnosed, and inadequately treated for centuries. Just as a disease manifests differently in different people, racism manifests differently in different historical periods. Just as different therapies are effective for treating different individuals with the same disease, so are there multiple approaches that can treat the disease of racism. There is no simple cure. Racism has been at the center of social life for all of American history. One of the most important lessons of that history is that racism will not just wither away. Racism must be accurately diagnosed and then intentionally treated. Our history is full of missed opportunities to recognize racism, address it, and develop strategies to overcome it. The good news, and the premise of this book, is that we can learn from our history, apply new knowledge, and break the cycle of disease. We can--and must--confront racism today to realize the civil rights dream."--Provided by publisher
