Overview

"Interesting and useful. . . . Explores the strengths and weaknesses of deracialization . . . [and] provides informative accounts of the recent campaigns, elections, and policies of ten African American political leaders."--Robert A. Dahl, Yale University

"A fine contribution to our evolving understanding of race and politics."--Mark Stern, University of Central Florida, and author of Calculating Visions: Kennedy, Johnson, and Civil Rights

Deracialization--the soft-pedaling or avoidance of black issues combined with a vigorous appeal to white voters--is a controversial strategy employed by some high-profile black politicians from Seattle to Atlanta. Contributors debate here whether deracialization harms the social and economic interests of African Americans.

Focusing on ten black politicians' campaigns between 1989 and 1992, including Carol Moseley-Braun, Andrew Young, David Dinkins, and Douglas Wilder, the authors also consider whether such a strategy increases the number of elected black officials and whether black politicians elected as a result of such campaigns have gone on to run deracialized governments.
