The African American Freedom Struggle After 1965Book - 2010
This account of the evolution of American racism outlines how colorblind approaches to discrimination ensured the perpetuation of racial inequality in the United States well beyond the 1960s. It is a chronicle of the evolution of American racism, its perpetuation, and black people's struggles for equality in the post civil rights era. It provides students with a better understanding of the experiences of black Americans and their ongoing struggles for justice by highlighting the interconnectedness of African American history with that of the nation as a whole. It also highlights the economic and political functions that racism has served throughout the nation's history, and discusses the continuation of the freedom movement beyond the 1960s to provide a new historiography of racial equality and social justice.
