African Americans and Jews in the twentieth century : studies in convergence and conflict by V. P Franklin( )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,962 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1993 distinguished historian Nancy L. Grant organized "Blacks and Jews: An American Historical Perspective," a conference held at Washington University in St. Louis and dedicated to the exploration of Black-Jewish relations in twentieth-century America. Featuring presentations by historians, sociologists, and political scientists, this conference reflected Grant's devotion to scholarship on multicultural relations and the continuing struggle for racial equality in the United States. After Grant's untimely death in 1995, V. P. Franklin and the other contributors completed the work of readying these essays for publication with the assistance of the coeditors. African Americans and Jews in the Twentieth Century is the culmination of the innovative research and ideas presented at the conference."--BOOK JACKET. "Focusing on the complexity of the relationships between Blacks and Jews in America, these essays examine the convergence and conflict that have characterized Black-Jewish interactions over the past century. African Americans and Jews in the Twentieth Century provides an intellectual foundation for continued dialogue and future cooperative efforts to improve social justice in this society and will be an invaluable resource for the study of race relations in the United States in the twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET

Black self-determination : a cultural history of the faith of the fathers by V. P Franklin( Book )

4 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This path-breaking study questions many of the previous assessments of the cultural objectives of Afro-Americans and points the way toward the new and decisive role black Americans may soon be playing in American life. V.P. Franklin, associate professor of History and Afro-American studies at Yale University, examines the "core values" of the Afro-American experience. He quotes from early slave narratives, songs, sermons, and interviews with ex-slaves to show how Afro-Americans came to value freedom, resistance, and black unity and to formulate cultural values separate from white dominated society. - Back cover
The Negro in the making of America by Benjamin Quarles( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provides an account of the role that African Americans have played in shaping the destiny of America. Starting with the arrival of the slave ships in the early 1600s and moving through the Colonial period, the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, and into the last half of the twentieth century, Quarles chronicles the sweep of events that have brought blacks and their struggle for social and economic equality to the forefront of American life. Through portraits of central political, historical, and artistic figures such as Nat Turner, Frederick Douglass, Duke Ellington, Malcolm X, and the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., Quarles illuminates the African American contributions that have enriched the cultural heritage of America. He also covers black participation in politics, the rise of a black business class, and the forms of discrimination experienced by blacks in housing, employment, and the media. --From publisher description
