A watershed decade in U.S. history, the 1930s witnessed a struggle on various fronts--fought by many different Americans--that raised the country's awareness of the inequalities and injustices suffered by African Americans.
Featuring a new preface and an expansive, up-to-date bibliography, this 30th Anniversary Edition of Harvard Sitkoff's A New Deal for Blacks presents a comprehensive account of the changes--substantive and symbolic--that eventually led to the emergence of civil rights as a national issue and helped make a successful quest for racial justice possible. It emphasizes a wide variety of individuals and organizations that contributed to the coming-of-age of civil rights, and highlights the role of New Dealers, organized labor, the Left, Southern women opposed to lynching, biological and social scientists, black lawyers, and, especially, African American organizations that planted the seeds of racial progress.
This unique text is an ideal resource for undergraduate courses in African American history.
