Summary
Now fully revised and updated, this third edition of a popular text explores the African-American experience from the slave period to the present. As well as analyzing the contribution of significant figures such as Booker T. Washington, W.E.B. Du Bois, Marcus Garvey, Martin Luther King, Jr, Malcolm X, and Jesse Jackson, the book now includes a separate chapter on the remarkable work of female political and cultural leaders, including Harriet Tubman, Ida B. Wells, Mary McLeod Bethune, Fannie Lou Hamer, Condoleezza Rice, and Oprah Winfrey. The book ends with a consideration of the life and career of Barack Obama - America's first black president - who has sometimes been perceived as downplaying the issue of race in his leadership roles. A remarkable work of synthesis and collective biography, illuminated with numerous first-person quotations, A History of African-American Leadership is ideal for students of American history, politics, sociology, and race relations, as well as for general readers interested in gaining a deeper understanding of one of the major issues of our time
