Huey P. Newton the radical theorist by J. L Jeffries ( )
10 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 1,805 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Huey P. Newton's powerful legacy to the Black Power Movement and the civil rights struggle has long been obscured. Conservatives harp at Newton's drug use and at the circumstances of his death in a crack-related shooting. Liberals romanticize his black revolutionary rhetoric and idealize his message." "In Huey P. Newton: The Radical Theorist, Judson L. Jeffries considers the entire arc of Newton's political role and influence on civil rights history and African American thought. Jeffries argues that, contrary to popular belief, Newton was one of the most important political thinkers in the struggle for civil rights."--BOOK JACKET
On the ground the Black Panther Party in communities across America by J. L Jeffries ( )
7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Black Panther Party suffers from a distorted image largely framed by television and print media, including the Panthers' own newspaper. These sources frequently reduced the entire organization to the Bay Area where the Panthers were founded, emphasizing the Panthers' militant rhetoric and actions rather than their community survival programs. This image, however, does not mesh with reality. The Panthers worked tirelessly at improving the life chances of the downtrodden regardless of race, gender, creed, or sexual orientation. In order to chronicle the rich history of the Black Panther Party, this anthology examines local Panther activities throughout the United States--in Seattle, Washington; Kansas City, Missouri; New Orleans, Louisiana; Houston, Texas; Des Moines, Iowa; and Detroit, Michigan.This approach features the voices of people who served on the ground--those who kept the offices in order, prepared breakfasts for school children, administered sickle cell anemia tests, set up health clinics, and launched free clothing drives. The essays shed new light on the Black Panther Party, re-evaluating its legacy in American cultural and political history. Just as important, this volume gives voice to those unsung Panthers whose valiant efforts have heretofore gone unnoticed, unheard, or ignored
Urban America and its police from the postcolonial era through the turbulent 1960s by Harlan Hahn ( )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 948 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Urban America and Its Police, Harlan Hahn and Judson L. Jeffries present a broad and comparative overview of urban policing in the United States. Synthesizing their own research with information from an eclectic array of sources - seminal social science studies of urban police departments, government documents, reports from organizations such as the American Civil Liberties Union, and think tank monographs - they present a nationally oriented and historically informed understanding of the diverse and often conflicting roles police officers play on city streets." "Hahn and Jeffries also demonstrate the ways in which race and ethnicity have influenced law enforcement in the United States since the creation of the nation's first police force. Ultimately, the authors call for a renewed emphasis on the social service dimension of police work - a shift they argue would reduce crime and enhance community support for those who are sworn to protect and serve."--Jacket

Virginia's native son : the election and administration of Governor L. Douglas Wilder by J. L Jeffries ( Book )
4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This study focuses on black electoral politics, political leadership, and the political dynamics of anti-black racism through an examination of L. Douglas Wilder's election to the governorship of Virginia in 1989." "With Wilder's election, he became the first African American elected to state governorship in U.S. history. In many ways the Wilder candidacy is a microcosm of the entire American political and social reality. The fact that a southern state party organization that had historically concerned itself with keeping blacks out of political life would nominate a grandson of slaves to represent its party in the 1989 governor's election speaks volumes."--BOOK JACKET
