African-American Politics is a cutting-edge introduction to the political successes, failures, and persistent challenges of African-American political participation in the United States. Exploring both historic and present day political phenomena, the book draws on a wide range of sources, including U.S. Census data, Gallup Polls, landmark court opinions, speeches and first-hand interviews to provide the reader with a comprehensive and up-to-the-minute analysis of what often appear to be "irreconcilable differences" between the American political system and one of its most historically subjugated constituency groups.
Amongst the key topics covered are:
* symbolic versus substantive politics
* the impact of race on socio-economic status
* the post -Civil Rights leadership vacuum
* the rise of Black Conservatism and "New Black Politics"
* the political significance of Black Mega-Churches
* the emergence of "Hip Hop" as an alternative political voice
* the future of African - American Politics
This book will be essential reading for students of American and minority politics, African - American studies and related disciplines. It will serve as a catalyst for dialogue for anyone interested in the role of African Americans in contemporary US political life.
