Other chapters address the “Lost Cause,” “Redemption,” Jim Crow, blacks’ significant military contributions in both world wars, the Great Migration, the civil rights movement and the backlash that continues.
Contemporary issues, including white supremacy, Confederate statuary, the status of blacks compared to others are also addressed. Note is taken of James Whitman’s book exploring Hitler’s admiration of Jim Crow and our anti-miscegenation laws, as well as Richard Rothstein’s study of housing law and whites’ responsibility for creating ghettos.
Numerous photographs, tables, maps and charts make the book easy to read.
