From Exclusion to Inclusion: The Long Struggle for African American Political Power

Synopsis

This book is designed to explore the historical and current level of African-American political participation, to assess the fruits of participation, and to provide recommendations for improving the efficacy of African-American political participation in the future. By focusing on the national rather than local/urban contexts of black politics, by directly assessing the impact of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 on black political progress, and by evaluating the role of economic stagnation as well as cultural developments in constraining that progress, the volume provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date analysis of these issues.
