Growing out ora faculty seminar to redress the lack of course materials on the often contentious relations between these minority groups, this volume of 88 essays, narratives, and correspondence by well- and lesser-known figures minimizes the us-them perspective that obscures the complexity of such interaction historically. Sections explore themes and issues, African Americans as the chosen people, the slave trade and slavery in the New World, US eras from emancipation to the present, and where we go from here. Ending on a hopeful note, the last essay discusses teaching ethnic identity and intergroup relations. Introduced by Julian Bond.
