Über diesen Titel
From the beginning of Reconstruction to the present, traces the struggle of blacks to gain their civil rights in America, with a brief comparison of their problems to those of other minorities.From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-9 This text-like presentation of an aspect of America's social history begins with the abolition of slavery and the passage of the Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth Amendments. It encompasses the time from 1865 to the present with a discussion of the unequal application of guaranteed social and political priveleges among American citizens. The text is developed in chronological sequence with time lines of important events. Subheads are abundant, as are prominent black-and-white illustrations which appear on almost every spread. Cameos of personalities, events, places, and legislative acts provide occasional summaries of previously presented materials. Despite its focus on blacks, the presentation is admirably balanced with discussions of other minority groups, the handicapped, and roles played by whites in the translation and implementation of the U.S. Constitution and its Amendments. Despite the omission of the exact wording of these basic documents, some careless editing, and the book's text-like format, this book provides a broadened perspective of civil rights history, which makes it more useful than Jackson's Blacks in America (Watts, 1980; o.p.), Spangler's The Blacks in America (Lerner, 1980), or Winslow's Afro-Americans '76 (Afro-Am, 1975; o.p.). Because it can be read and enjoyed as a straight narrative, public and school libraries will find the book useful. Helen E. Williams, University of Maryland, College Park
