Overview

US peace movements have been notoriously dominated by middle-class, male, European figures and thinking; and the correction for that has been attempts at neutrality and inclusion. Berlowitz (educational foundations, U. of Cincinnati), Eric R. Jackson (history, geography, and Afro-American studies; Northwestern Kentucky U.) and Nathan A. Long (education, U. of Cincinnati) contend that the approach devalues the contributions that African American experiences and history can make to the movement, and the possibility of engagement and negotiation between black and white sensibilities about peace. They collect 32 texts by black American involved in peace movements from 1898 to 1967 by well known and less known thinkers. Biographical sketches are provided for each. There is no index.
