Aristocrats of color : the Black elite, 1880-1920 by Willard B Gatewood( Book )

14 editions published between 1990 and 2000 in English and held by 1,404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every American city had a small, self-aware, and active black elite, who felt it was their duty to set the standard for the less fortunate members of their race and to lead their communities by example. Professor Gatewood's study examines this class of African Americans by looking at the genealogies and occupations of specific families and individuals throughout the United States and their roles in their various communities. --from publisher description

13 editions published between 1971 and 1999 in English and held by 1,027 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

... Black soldiers (called 'Smoked Yankees' by the Spaniards) hoped to ease Negro oppression in the United States by serving in the regular and volunteer armies during the Spanish-American War and fighting for the white man in Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines. Selected from hundreds printed in the Negro press, these letters constitute a remarkably complete and hitherto undisclosed record of the black man's role (and attitudes) in America's struggle for empire at the turn of the century. Together they provide a wholly new perspective on the Spanish-American War and the Filipino Insurrection
