Paperbound reprint of a 1997 work. Bethel (sociology, Lander U.) examines how African Americans crafted a New World ethnic identity, and how that sense of identity fueled efforts to claim and live a promised but undelivered democratic freedom. She looks at the eight decades between the Revolution and the Civil War, Reconstruction, the modern Pan-African movement, and the historical legacy of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
