Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This completely revised and updated edition focuses on the African-American struggle for civil rights from 1945 to 2002. William T. Martin Riches shows how the black community used the institutions created by "de jure" segregation to overcome apartheid and white resistance. Riches emphasizes their influence on other groups demanding justice in America and warns that subsequent events and administrations have endangered the gains made by the movement.
