Now fully revised and updated, this third edition of a popular text explores the African-American experience from the slave period to the present. As well as analyzing the contribution of significant figures such as Booker T. Washington, W.E.B. Du Bois, Marcus Garvey, Martin Luther King, Jr, Malcolm X, and Jesse Jackson, the book now includes a separate chapter on the remarkable work of female political and cultural leaders, including Harriet Tubman, Ida B. Wells, Mary McLeod Bethune, Fannie Lou Hamer, Condoleezza Rice, and Oprah Winfrey. The book ends with a consideration of the life and career of Barack Obama - America's first black president - who has sometimes been perceived as downplaying the issue of race in his leadership roles. A remarkable work of synthesis and collective biography, illuminated with numerous first-person quotations, A History of African-American Leadership is ideal for students of American history, politics, sociology, and race relations, as well as for general readers interested in gaining a deeper understanding of one of the major issues of our time

Artie Shaw : non-stop flight by John White( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the dashing and handsome leader of one of America's most accomplished big bands in the 1930s and 40s, Artie Shaw achieved measures of fame and fortune which temporarily eclipsed even those of his great rival, Benny Goodman. Shaw's five top single recordings had sold over 65 million copies by 1965, and by 1990 his total sales exceeded 100 million records. Yet he was an ambitiously serious musician who frequently tired of the music business, often forsaking it for extended periods; he also achieved renown as a writer of fiction. Unlike Goodman, Shaw has not been well served by jazz historians; in rectifying that omission, this study offers a narrative account and analytical assessment of the achievements and concerns of a major figure in American popular music"--Back cover

Before Brown : civil rights and white backlash in the modern South by Andrew Michael Manis( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Detailing the ferment in civil rights that took place across the South before the momentous Brown vs. Board of Education decision in 1954, this collection refutes the notion that the movement began with the Supreme Court decision, and suggests, rather, that the movement originated in the 1930s and earlier, spurred by the Great Depression and, later, World War II
