Teaching African-American history by Robert L Harris( Book )

11 editions published between 1985 and 2001 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scholars examine the Afro-American past to understand the position that black people have occupied in U.S. society, their efforts to cope with their status, and their successes and failures in pursuing full equality. The four major themes of Afro-American history and the transformations associated with them are: (1)"Africa to America" (Africans to Afro-Americans); (2)"Slavery to Freedom" (slaves to agricultural workers); (3)"Countryside to City" (agricultural workers to industrial laborers); and (4)"Segregation to Civil Rights" (outsiders to first-class citizens). These four themes offer a conceptual framework for organizing the Afro-American experience thematically and chronologically and for incorporating it in the trajectory of U.S. history. The people, movements, organizations, political and social events, and legislation associated with these themes are discussed in depth. Each of the four sections is supported by extensive notes, and a bibliography of 14 reference guides is included. (Jb)
Black studies in the United States : three essays by Robert L Harris( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three essays are presented that discuss, in general terms, information that was collected in 1987-88 concerning the current status of black studies in the United States. The researchers were invited to survey selected black studies departments, programs, institutes, and centers judged to be representative of the structural diversity and programmatic scope of Afro-American and Africana studies across the country; to evaluate their present capacities and strengths; and to assess their future needs. Since the conversations on which this material is based were confidential it could not be reported in full; however, the essays contain substantial amounts of general information. The essays are entitled: "The Intellectual and Institutional Development of Africana Studies" (Robert L. Harris, Jr.); "Black Studies: An Overview" (Darlene Clark Hine); and "Black Studies in the Midwest" (Nellie McKay). (Glr)
