This fully revised and updated edition brings this landmark study of contemporary Black American history, culture, society, and politics firmly into the Twenty-First century. "Race, Reform, and Rebellion" traces the divergent elements of political, social, and moral reform in non-white America since 1945 - it follows the emergence of a powerful black working class, the successful effort to abolish racial segregation, the outbreak of Black Power and urban rebellion during the 50-60s. It then goes on to illustrate how poverty, illegal drugs, unemployment, and a deteriorating urban infrastructure led to the decline of the African American community in the 80-90s. Finally, it analyses the effects of 21st century factors such as welfare reform, the mainstreaming of hip-hop and 'Gangsta' culture, 9/11, and Hurricane Katrina.
