by Donzaleigh Abernathy Ralph David Abernathy and Martin Luther King Jr. were inseparable and together helped to establish what would become the modern American Civil Rights Movement. They preached, marched, and were frequently jailed together. Donzaleigh Abernathy, Ralph’s youngest daughter, has written Partners to History as a testament to the courage, strength, and endurance of these men who stirred a nation with their moral fortitude. She also pays tribute to the thousands of unsung heroes—the other partners to this history—who were foot soldiers in the endless struggle for freedom, justice, and equality. This document captures in words and pictures how the dream of two visionaries changed the course of American history and inspired the world.

OUR TOWN A Heartland Lynching, a Haunted Town, and the Hidden History of White America

now in Paperback

by Cynthia Carr

SLAVES IN THE FAMILY by Edward Ball Winner of the National Book Award and a New York Times Notable Book of the Year

“Everyone should read and learn from this luminous book....Like Alex Haley’s Roots, through which African American history came into national focus... Slaves in the Family has the potential for creating a perceptual shift in the American mind....The book is not only honest in its scrupulous reporting but also personal narrative at its finest.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“Cynthia Carr goes deep into the heart of our national darkness—the public ritual of violence we call the lynching. Carr investigates its aftermath in a small town and, page by page, we understand everything that we can, experiencing the shock, disgust, and the harrowing heartbreak that always attends murder wearing the blues mask of ‘rough justice.’ Carr’s clear-eyed rendering of her quest follows the transformation of that murder from a rumor to a collective act to a disputed fact that sits uneasily in the memory of a community.” —Stanley Crouch, author of The Artificial White Man: Essays on Authenticity

“This outstanding narrative is an excellent companion to last year’s Blood Done Sign My Name [...] which also used crime as an entry point into the struggle for civil rights.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) Three Rivers Press | TR | 978-0-307-34188-4 | 512pp | $14.95/$19.95C Exam Copy: $3.00

SAVING THE RACE by Rebecca Carroll W.E.B. Du Bois’s The Souls of Black Folk is one of the most influential books ever published in this country. In it, Du Bois wrote that “the problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color line,” a prophecy that is as fresh and poignant today as when it first appeared in print in 1903. Now, one hundred years after The Souls of Black Folk was first published, Saving the Race re-examines the legacy of Du Bois and his “color line” prophecy from a modern viewpoint. The author, Rebecca Carroll, a biracial woman who was reared by white parents, not only provides her own personal perspective, but she invites eighteen wellknown African Americans to share their ideas and opinions about what Du Bois’s classic text means today.

THE CRISIS OF THE NEGRO INTELLECTUAL A Historical Analysis of the Failure of Black Leadership

by Harold Cruse; Introduction by Stanley Crouch Published in 1967, as the early triumphs of the Civil Rights movement yielded to increasing frustration and violence, The Crisis of the Negro Intellectual electrified a generation of activists and intellectuals. The product of a lifetime of struggle and reflection, Cruse’s book is a singular amalgam of cultural history, passionate disputation, and deeply considered analysis of the relationship between American blacks and American society. “Cruse repositioned the interpretive axes of the study and conduct of black political debate. Where Malcolm X was the intellectual inspiration of Black Power and Stokely Carmichael (Kwame Turé) was its principal ideological architect, Cruse was without question its definitive critical interlocutor.” —Adolph Reed, Jr., New School University

African Americans Reflect on Booker T. Washington and Up From Slavery 100 Years Later

GHETTONATION

by Rebecca Carroll Includes Washington’s classic memoir Up from Slavery

Over ninety years after the death of Booker T. Washington comes a passionate, provocative dialogue on his complicated legacy, including the complete text of his classic autobiography, Up from Slavery. Uncle Tom or New Negro? does much more than provide another critical edition of Washington’s memoirs. Instead, Carroll has interviewed an outstanding array of African American luminaries, including Julianne Malveaux, cultural critics Debra Dickerson and John McWhorter, and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and radio talk-show host Karen Hunter, among others. A noteworthy collection filled with invigorating and varying perspectives, this book will allow students to reach their own conclusions about a controversial figure.

A Journey Into the Land of Bling and Home of The Shameless

NEW

by Cora Daniels From an award-winning journalist and cultural commentator this is a provocative examination of the impact of “ghetto” mores, attitudes, and lifestyles on urban communities and American culture in general. Cora Daniels takes on one of the most explosive issues in our country today in this critique of America’s embrace of a ghetto persona that demeans women, devalues education, celebrates the worst African American stereotypes, and contributes to the destruction of civil peace. Her investigation exposes the central role of corporate America in exploiting the idea of ghetto-ness as a hip cultural idiom, despite its disturbing ramifications, as a means of making money.

AT THE HANDS OF PERSONS UNKNOWN

The African-American Migration Experience

The Lynching of Black America

by Howard Dodson and Sylviane A. Dique

by Philip Dray

African Americans, more than any other population in the Americas, have been shaped by migrations. Their culture and history are the results of various movements, both coerced and voluntary, that started in the Western hemisphere 500 years ago. In Motion, the follow-up to the critically acclaimed Jubilee, is the first book of its kind to trace these migrations and study their effects.

Philip Dray also tells the story of the men and women who led the long and difficult fight to expose and eradicate lynching, including Ida B. Wells, James Weldon Johnson, Walter White, and W.E.B. Du Bois. “A powerfully written, admirably perceptive synthesis of the vast literature on lynching. It is the most comprehensive social history of this shameful subject in almost seventy years and should be recognized as a major addition to the bibliography of American race relations.” —David Levering Lewis, Professor, Rutgers University Modern Library | TR | 978-0-375-75445-6 | 544pp | $15.95/$23.95C Exam Copy: $3.00

Finding Your Own

An Oral History of the Civil Rights Movement from the 1950s Through the 1980s

by Henry Hampton and Steve Fayer

Slavery in the South has been documented in volumes ranging from exhaustive histories to bestselling novels. But the North’s profit from—indeed, dependence on—slavery has mostly been a shameful and well-kept secret among the general populace. In this superbly researched new book, three veteran New England journalists demythologize the history of the region of America known for tolerance and liberation, revealing a place where thousands of people were held in bondage, and where slavery was an essential part of economic and social life. Drawn from long-ignored documents and reports— and supported by rarely seen photos, publications, maps, and period drawings—Complicity is a fascinating and sobering work that sheds light on a dark period in American history and will be sure to provoke discussion among students of history.

FINDING OPRAH’S ROOTS

VOICES OF FREEDOM

by Henry Louis Gates, Jr. Finding Oprah’s Roots will not only endow readers with a new appreciation for the key contributions made by history’s unsung but also equip them with the tools to connect to pivotal figures in their own past. For Oprah, the path back to the past was emotion-filled and profoundly illuminating, connecting the narrative of her family to the larger American narrative and “anchoring” her in a way not previously possible. For the reader, Finding Oprah’s Roots offers the possibility of an equally rewarding experience. A roadmap through the intricacies of public documents and online databases, the book also highlights genetic testing resources that can make it possible to know one’s distant tribal roots in Africa.

LEST WE FORGET

The Restoration of Apartheid Schooling in America

The Passage from Africa to Slavery and Emancipation

by Jonathan Kozol

by Velma Maia Thomas

In The Shame of the Nation, Kozol makes a powerful and persuasive argument that America needs to finally face the ongoing problems with its urban schools. Filled with the passionate voices of children and their teachers and some of the most revered and trusted leaders in the black community, The Shame of the Nation is a triumph of firsthand reporting.

Based on materials from the nationally acclaimed Black Holocaust Exhibit and written by the exhibit’s director, Lest We Forget documents the plight of an estimated 100 million Africans, from their rich pre-slavery culture to their enslavement in a foreign land. This book is a collection of magnificent historic papers, memoirs, personal effects, and photographs brought to life in a unique three-dimensional, interactive format.

“A call for activism, The Shame of the Nation firmly grounds school-reform issues in the thorny context of race and concludes that the nation has failed to deliver the promise of Brown.” —The Washington Post “Segregation is back, and only a writer of Jonathon Kozol’s wisdom and passion can assess its terrible price, one child at a time. It isn’t easy, but before we can craft a solution, we have to feel the shame.” —Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed Three Rivers Press | TR | 978-1-4000-5245-5 | 432pp | $14.95/$21.00C Exam Copy: $12.50

HUNG A Meditation on the Measure of Black Men in America

now in Paperback

by Scott Poulson-Bryant Following in the footsteps of such taboo-breaking books as Randall Kennedy’s Nigger and J. L. King’s On the Down Low, Hung looks at how black male sexuality has been expressed in American media and entertainment— but “Hung” is also a double entendre, referring not only to perceived sexual prowess but to the fact that black men were once literally hung from trees for the supposed risk they posed to white women. As a poignant reminder, author Scott Poulson-Bryant begins this book with a letter to Emmett Till. Harlem Moon | TR | 978-0-7679-1555-7 | 224pp | $14.00/$18.95C Exam Copy: $3.00

Of interest to those who are grappling with issues of public health and racial justice. “Sweeping and powerful.”

HIGHER GROUND Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Curtis Mayfield, and the Rise and Fall of American Soul

by Craig Werner Soul music is one of America’s greatest cultural achievements, and Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, and Curtis Mayfield are three of its most inspired practitioners. In midcentury America it was soul music—particularly the dazzling stream of recordings made by these three stars—that helped bring the gospel vision of the black church into the mainstream, energizing the era's social movements and defining a new American gospel where the sacred and the secular met. In Higher Ground, Werner, who teaches African American music, literature, and cultural history at the University of Wisconsin, illuminates the lives of three unparalleled American artists, reminding us why their music mattered then and still resonates with us today.

For the first time, the movers and shakers of modern hip-hop—including Rakim, Run DMC, A Tribe Called Quest, and The Roots—speak out about their most revered and influential works and the climates that helped to foster their artistic growth.

The Rise, Fall, and Redemption of the Black Athlete Provocative and controversial, Rhoden’s Forty Million Dollar Slaves weaves a compelling narrative of black athletes in the United States. Rhoden makes the cogent argument that black athletes’ “evolution” has merely been a journey from literal plantations—where sports were introduced as diversions to quell revolutionary stirrings—to today’s figurative ones, in the form of collegiate and professional sports programs. “Few writers can match Bill Rhoden as a commentator on the vexing subject of race and sports in America.” —Arnold Rampersad, author of Jackie Robinson: A Biography and, with Arthur Ashe, Days of Grace: A Memoir Crown | HC | 978-0-609-60120-4 | 304pp | $23.95/$31.95C Exam Copy: $12.00 Paperback coming July 2007.

African Americans In Pursuit Of Freedom, Opportunity, and Achievement

A School Library Journal Best Adult Books for Young Adults

by Alan Govenar

Filled with lessons from a remarkable life, here's an inspirational memoir by an extraordinary and courageous woman: Unita Blackwell. Born into poverty in the Mississippi Delta in the 1920s, Unita lived the hopeless life of a southern sharecropper until she was electrified and transformed by the civil rights workers who came to the plantations of the Delta in the 1960s. She became a firebrand in the movement—a fearless leader who gave eloquent voice to the plight of southern blacks—and has been a high-profile and much-recognized activist for international human rights causes ever since.

Untold Glory offers a fresh perspective on one of the most fundamental elements of American history—the conquest of new frontiers. In twenty-seven fascinating first-person accounts, African Americans from different eras, backgrounds, and occupations explore and reflect on the meaning of frontier, both literally and metaphorically. Contributors include: the civil-rights attorney Oliver W. Hill, one of the architects of the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court case; and L. Douglas Wilder, the grandson of slaves who became the first African American governor of Virginia. Illustrated with black-and-white photographs and featuring an incisive introduction by Alan Govenar, Untold Glory is both an important addition to the field of African American history and an engaging, eye-opening look at some of the nation’s most daring, innovative, and influential pioneers.

MY BONDAGE AND MY FREEDOM by Frederick Douglass; Introduction and Notes by John Stauffer “My Bondage and My Freedom,” writes John Stauffer in his Foreword, “[is] a deep meditation on the meaning of slavery, race, and freedom, and on the power of faith and literacy, as well as a portrait of an individual and a nation a few years before the Civil War.” As his narrative unfolds, Frederick Douglass—abolitionist, journalist, orator, and one of the most powerful voices to emerge from the American civil rights movement—transforms himself from slave to fugitive to reformer, leaving behind a legacy of social, intellectual, and political thought. Set from the text of the 1855 first edition, this Modern Library Paperback Classic includes Douglass’s original Appendix, composed of excerpts from the author’s speeches as well as a letter he wrote to his former master.

LADY SINGS THE BLUES The 50th Anniversary Edition

by Billie Holiday and William Dufty; Foreword by David Ritz Updated with an introduction and revised discography by celebrated music writer David Ritz. Lady Sings the Blues is the fiercely honest autobiography of Billie Holiday, legendary singing sensation. Taking the reader on a fast-moving journey from Holiday’s rough-and-tumble Baltimore childhood to sold-out performances with the Count Basie Orchestra, this revelatory memoir is notable for its trenchant observations on the racism that darkened Billie’s life and the heroin addiction that ended it too soon.

Harriet Tubman, Portrait of an American Hero

by Kate Clifford Larson

A Biography

by Beverly Lowry In Harriet Tubman: Imagining A Life, Beverly Lowry goes beyond the familiar tales to create a portrait of Tubman in lively imagined vignettes that, as Lowry writes, “catch her on the fly” and portray her life as she herself might have presented it. Lowry offers readers an intimate look at Harriet’s early life firsthand: her birth as Araminta Ross in 1822 in Dorchester, Maryland; the harsh treatment she experienced growing up—including being struck with a twopound iron when she was twelve years old; and her triumphant escape from slavery as a young woman and rebirth as Harriet Tubman. Lowry transports us with Tubman: along the treacherous route of the Underground Railroad as she creates friendships with Frederick Douglass, John Brown, and other abolitionists; to the battlefields of the Civil War, where she worked as a nurse and a cook and earned the name General Tubman; on slavefreeing raids in the heart of the Confederacy; as she experiences the horror and sorrow of witnessing the massacre of Colonel Shaw and the black soldiers of the 54th Regiment at Fort Wagner. Integrating extensive research and interviews with scholars and historians into a stunningly rich and mesmerizing chronicle, Lowry brings Tubman to life as never before.

In this now classic autobiography, Anne Moody details the sights, smells, and suffering of growing up in a racist society and candidly reveals the soul of the black girl who had the courage to challenge it. The result is an accurate, authoritative portrait of Black family life in the rural South that will challenge students’ understanding of the civil rights movement with respect to its leaders, their decisions, and consequences.

In The Audacity of Hope, Senator Obama draws on his experience as a senator and a lawyer, a professor and a father, Christian and a skeptic to address what he sees as Americans’ weariness of the current political climate.

Suskind won the Pulitzer Prize for the pair of articles that form the seed of this book. “Suskind uses his reporter skills brilliantly, portraying Cedric’s outer and inner life and making an eloquent though unstated plea for affirmative action.

GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN

A Literary Tribute to Black America’s Most Famous Neighborhood, from the Classics to the Contemporary

by James Baldwin

Edited by William H. Banks, Jr.

As one of the century’s premier American writers, James Baldwin has profoundly altered America’s social and literary consciousness. This novel, Baldwin’s first major work that has established itself as an American classic, chronicles one fourteen-year-old boy’s epiphany regarding his place as the stepson of the minister of a storefront Pentecostal church in Harlem.

A passionate ode to an American mecca, Beloved Harlem is a literary look into this vibrant African American haven, edited by one of its most celebrated native sons. William H. Banks, Jr., award-winning writer and Executive Director of the esteemed Harlem Writers Guild, combines the classics with the contemporary as he showcases some of the best essays, short stories, and novel excerpts inspired by the diversity of Harlem life, from the early twentieth century to the new millennium. Includes writers like W.E.B. DuBois, Zora Neale Hurston, Langston Hughes, Dorothy West, Ossie Davis, and Toni Morrison.

A Novel Set in Kansas City, Missouri, during the Jazz Age of the 1920s and ’30s, Such Sweet Thunder is a majestic evocation of childhood and parental love told through the eyes of a remarkable boy, Amerigo Jones. This vivid portrait of an era marred by racial segregation and relentless, daily injustices is nonetheless rendered with love and longing for a time and place that was enriched by a vibrant, burgeoning, and widely influential African American culture and a fierce feeling for family and community. It is a unique work of American fiction, a literary triumph, and a mustread for anyone deeply interested in our nation’s social history and cultural heritage. “A rousing, inspired work, keenly observed and soulful. . . a rich addition to our literary understanding of the 20thcentury African American experience.” —The Boston Globe Zoland Books | TR | 978-1-58195-217-9 | 440pp | $16.95/$22.95C Exam Copy: $3.00

THE COLONEL’S DREAM

AFTER

A Novel

A Novel

by Charles Chesnutt

by Marita Golden

In this provocative novel of reconstruction and race, a Civil War veteran tries to create a new utopia in his Southern hometown after gaining enlightenment and riches in the North. The Colonel’s Dream offers a prophetic perspective on modern issues of multiculturalism and economic disparity, making it a keystone in American literature and history.

In her long-awaited fifth novel, acclaimed writer Marita Golden takes another unflinching look into the face of family, race, love and identity. One night in March, nearing the end of a routine shift, Carson Blake, a black police officer, stops a young black man for speeding. He orders Paul Houston to exit the car and drop to his knees. But when Houston retrieves something from his waistband and turns to face Carson, three shots are fired, one man loses his life and two families are wrenched from everything that came before and hurled into the haunting future of everything that will come after. When it is revealed that Paul, a son of educators and a teacher in Southeast D.C., was only holding a cell phone, Carson’s carefully woven world begins to unravel.

THE QUEST OF THE SILVER FLEECE

A Novel

by W.E.B. Du Bois Originally published in 1911, The Quest of the Silver Fleece was the first novel to come from world-famous sociologist and civil-rights leader W.E.B. Du Bois. A controversial title of its time, the novel chronicles the complex interactions between Northern financing and Southern politics as it follows the story of free-spirited Zora, child of a Southern swamp, and her romance with Yankee-educated Bles, who will eventually face the opportunity to claim political power through corrupt means. In the middle of it all is the silver fleece, a crop of cotton rich with meaning and symbolism. Harlem Moon | TR | 978-0-7679-1845-9 | 288pp | $14.00/$21.00C Exam Copy: $3.00

IMPERIUM IN IMPERIO by Sutton Griggs Preface by A.J. Verdelle. Introduction by Cornel West. Self-published in 1899 and sold door-to-door by the author, this classic African American novel—a gripping exploration of oppression, miscegenation, exploitation, and black empowerment—was a major bestseller in its day. The dramatic story of a conciliatory black man and a mulatto nationalist who grow up in a racist America and are driven to join a radical movement dedicated to the creation of an all-black nation in Texas, Imperium in Imperio had a profound influence on the development of black nationalism. “A powerful, moving story...This new edition should restore Griggs to his rightful place among black intellectuals and protest novelists.” —John Stauffer, Frederick Douglass Prize winner for The Black Hearts of Men Modern Library | TR | 978-0-8129-7160-6 | 208pp | $13.95/$18.95C Exam Copy: $3.00


PASSING

by Richard Hughes; Introduction by Francine Prose

by Nella Larsen; Foreword by Mae Henderson Introduction by Ntozake Shange

The dreamlike action of this masterpiece begins among the decayed plantation houses and overwhelming natural abundance of late-nineteenth-century Jamaica before moving out onto the high seas, as Hughes tells the story of a group of children thrown upon the mercy of a crew of down-at-the-heel pirates. A bestseller when it was first published in 1929, A High Wind in Jamaica was chosen by the Modern Library as one of the hundred best novels of the twentieth century. NYRB Classics | TR | 978-0-940322-15-8 | 296pp | $12.95/$16.95C Exam Copy: $3.00

First published to critical acclaim in 1929, Passing firmly established Nella Larsen’s prominence among women writers of the Harlem Renaissance. The Modern Library is proud to present Passing—an electrifying story of two women who cross the color line in 1920s New York— together with a new Introduction by the Obie Award-winning playwright and novelist Ntozake Shange. Brilliantly plotted and elegantly written, Passing offers a gripping psychological portrait of emotional extremity. “[Larsen] has produced a work so fine, sensitive, and distinguished that it rises above race categories and becomes that rare object, a good novel.”

SOULSCRIPT A Collection of Classic African American Poetry

—The Saturday Review of Literature

by June Jordan Assembled by the late, great, award-winning poet June Jordan, and first published in 1970, Soulscript is a poignant and panoramic collection of Black poetry by the most eloquent voices in the art.

MY JIM

MY SOUL HAS GROWN DEEP

A Novel

Classics of Early African-American Literature

by Nancy Rawles

Edited by John Edgar Wideman

WINNER 2006 - ALA Alex Award

Edited by Rhodes scholar and Professor John Edgar Wideman, My Soul Has Grown Deep is a truly representative sampling of literature by African American writers in the early centuries of American history. With extensive, self-contained entries by authors ranging from Rev. Richard Allen (1760—1831) through Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872—1906), the collection’s diversity represents the full range of black literary output and yet is still focused enough to give students a sense of the early period of this literary tradition in detail. Each selection in this anthology is illuminated by Wideman’s comprehensive analysis of the writer’s life and work.

WINNER 2006 - New York Public Library Books for the Teen Age

Told with spare eloquence and mirroring the true stories of countless slave women, My Jim recreates one of the most controversial characters in American literature— Huckleberry Finn’s Jim. A nuanced critique of the great American novel, My Jim is a haunting and inspiring story about freedom, longing, and the remarkable endurance of love.

A Memoir

by John Bul Dau and Michael Sweeney This unforgettable book is the first-person account of a miracle—indeed, a whole series of miracles. One of the uprooted youngsters known as the Lost Boys of Sudan, John Bul Dau was 12 years old when civil war ravaged his village and shattered its age-old society, a life of herding and agriculture marked by dignity, respect, and the simple virtues of Dinka tribal tradition. As tracer bullets split the night and mortar shells exploded around him, John fled into the darkness—the first terrified moments of a journey that would lead him thousands of miles into an exile that was to last many years. John’s memoir of his Dinka childhood shows African life and values at their best, while his searing account of hardship, famine, and war also testifies to human resilience and kindness.

THE BLACK MAN’S BURDEN Africa and the Curse of the Nation-State

by Basil Davidson The Black Man’s Burden places Africa’s present-day political instability into historical perspective by chronicling the roots and subsequent development of Africa’s independence movements. Davidson argues that the root cause of the crises engulfing the African continent lies in a historical irony: Africa’s anticolonialist liberators, reluctant to embrace Africa’s own precolonial history as the basis of its postcolonial coherence and continuity, chose to form nation-states based on fundamentally flawed European models, thus reproducing the sectarian strife of Europe in Africa and compromising the new nations almost from the moment of their birth. “Probably the most concise indictment available in the English language of how colonialism and neocolonialism, with a lot of help from capitalism and communism, turned the continent upside down.” —The Washington Post Three Rivers Press | TR | 978-0-8129-2210-3 | 368pp | $15.00/NCR Exam Copy: $3.00
