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
