Encyclopedia of African American Society, Volume 2
Gerald David Jaynes
Sage Publications, 2005 - African Americans - 1058 pages
This reference seeks to capture the ways in which the tenets and foundations of African American culture have given rise to today's society. Approaching the field from a "street level" perspective, these two volumes cover topics of universal interest in America: rap music, sports, television, cinema, racism, religion, literature, and much more. The Encyclopedia of African American Society is also the first comprehensive yet accessible reference set in this field to give voice to the turbulent historical trends - slavery, segregation, "separate but equal"--That are often ignored in favor of mere facts. This is a definitive, reliable, and accessible entry point to learning the basics about African American society.
