4.0 out of 5 stars Great book to learn and understand the complexity of the black communities in USA today, November 7, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Disintegration: The Splintering of Black America (Hardcover)
I bought this book expecting it to be a discussion about the differences between african american and black immigrants living in the USA. But the book did much more than that it provided me with details of black american history that I was not aware of and that are fundamental to understand the difficult times that african american had to endure in order to be where they are today. The mixture of history and current events gave me a comprehensive perspective of the different black american communities and it helped me to better understand the situation of the class labeled as "the abandoned" in the book. Furthermore this book motivated me to volunteer part of my time to an organization that provides financial support and mentors to first generation black college students to ensure that they complete their BS degree.
