This book explores the many facets of black urban life from its genesis in the 18th century to the present time. With some historical background, the volume is primarily a contemporary critique, focusing on the major themes which have arisen and the challenges the confront African Americans as they create communities: political economy, religion and spirituality, health care, education, protest, and popular culture. The essays all examine the interplay between culture and politics, and the ways in which forms of cultural expression and political participation have changed over the past century to serve the needs of the black urban community. The collection closes with analysis of current struggles these communities face - joblessness, political discontent, frustrations with health care and urban schools - and the ways in which communities are responding to these challenges.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is an articulate, informative and thorough reader. Students will find it be a model of scholarly research that provides an excellent overview of urban politics. One that contributes to their intellectual growth as well as that of the field. There is nothing like it in the field."--Hanes Walton, Jr., The University of Michigan
"This edited volume responds to a vacuum in the literature regarding various facets of race and urban neighborhoods. The chapters weave history, theory, and empirical studies that shed light on the persistence of race in urban spaces. The collection shows how class and gender, culture, and politics mold, and are molded, by public policies. This will become a key addition to the literature on race, public policy, and urban communities."--James Jennings, Tufts University
"Gayle Tate and Lewis Randolph have assembled a fascinating collection of essays that vividly convey the complexity and dilemmas faced by the African-American community. The essays examine topics ranging from the historical to the socio-cultural context of their lives. Everyone who is concerned with the future of America's race relations should read these essays."--Wilbur C. Rich, Wellesley College
"A rich, multidimensional collection... Highly recommended." --"CHOICE"
