Item Details

"Emancipation was followed by one hundred more years of institutionalized subjugation through the enactment of Black Codes and Jim Crow laws, peonage and convict leasing, and domestic terrorism and lynching. Today the violations continue, and when combined with the crimes of the past, result in yet unmeasured injury. What do repeated traumas visited upon generation after generation of a people produce? What are the impacts of the ordeals associated with chattel slavery, and with the institutions that followed, on African Americans today?"--P. [4] of cover.

This book is awesome and really speaks to the commonalities African-Americans face on a daily basis. The struggles were not recognized as being abnormal for Blacks, but common for Blacks. A great teaching/training resource and I appreciate Mrs. DeGruy's diligence in producing such a fine achievement.
