W. E. B. DuBois famously stated that “the problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color-line,” and this slim volume tracks twenty-first-century data along that line. This statistical snapshot of black Americans examines how bias is affected (and, surprisingly, not affected) by demographics and numbers. Chapters include “Education,” “Entertainment and Sports,” “Health,” “Justice,” and “Politics, Voting, and Civic Engagement.” Each set of statistics is framed by a question (for example, “What is the percentage of Black teachers, and where do they teach?” and “How many black people are employed in the science, technology, and engineering sectors?”). Two appendixes look specifically at black females and black males, and there are extensive notes for each chapter. This thought-provoking, browsable book is recommended for libraries of all types. --Rebecca Vnuk

"Thank you, Monique Morris, for this gift of knowledge. Black Stats is a brilliant and needed work. We can no longer claim that we didn’t know the depth of our crises or the wealth of our resources and resilience available to counter them. Now that we have the data, we must use it strategically to move our people—the nation and this troubled world—forward."
—Susan L. Taylor, Founder & CEO, National CARES Mentoring Movement, Editor-in-Chief Emeritus, Essence Magazine
"Black Stats is a great tool offering descriptive statistics on the condition of our nation's promise of freedom, justice, equality and economic opportunity for all."
—Marc H. Morial, President and CEO, National Urban League
