Contemporary Black History

Series Editors: Manning Marable and Peniel E. Joseph 

This series features cutting‐edge scholarship in Contemporary Black History since 1945,
underlining the importance of the study of history as a form of public advocacy and political
activism. It focuses on postwar African‐American history, from 1945 to the early 1990s, but it
also includes international black history, bringing in high‐quality interdisciplinary scholarship
from around the globe. Most of the volumes are single‐authored studies, but there is also room for exceptional collections of original scholarly essays. The distinguishing feature of these books is that they are all narrative‐driven, as it is the series editors' firm belief that outstanding critical research can also be accessible and well‐written. To this end, the books incorporate different methodologies that lend themselves to narrative richness, such as oral history and ethnography, and include high‐quality interdisciplinary scholarship combining disciplines such as African‐American Studies, Political Science, Sociology, Ethnic and Women's Studies, Cultural Studies, Anthropology, and Criminal Justice.

Manning Marable is Professor of Public Affairs, Political Science, History and African‐American Studies and director of the Center for Contemporary Black History at Columbia University.

Peniel E. Joseph is Associate Professor of Afro‐American Studies at Brandeis University.
