A signal contribution, this timely volume provides the central historical and contemporary contexts for teachers, students, and the general public seeking to understand the tragic events in Charleston in 2015. Building on the possibilities inherent in digital crowd-sourcing, Charleston Syllabus inaugurates a new model of engagement between academia and the general public around the most pressing issues of our time. (Leslie M. Harris author of In the Shadow of Slavery: African Americans in New York City, 1626-1863)
Do inflamed emergencies tend to produce innovative scholarly responses? Even a glancing perusal of this enlightening and brilliant response to the Charleston massacre of 2015 leads inexorably to an emphatic answer: yes! These diligent scholars provide eye-opening historical and contemporary chapters that shed light on why this tragedy occurred―and what must be done to ensure that it will not recur. (Gerald Horne author of The Counter-Revolution of 1776: Slave Resistance and the Origins of the United States of America)
This thoroughly remarkable compendium of works about African-American life, edited by the three history professors who started the #CharlestonSyllabus Twitter hashtag, offers solid ground for the oft-requested national conversation about race. Their work firmly connects the dots among slavery, white terror organizations, the Confederate battle flag, and the murders of eight African-American Bible study members in Charleston, S.C., in 2015. . . . This solid offshoot of the original online syllabus (a blockbuster bibliographic tool that’s also included in this volume) is simply a must-read, both for those already versed in these topics and those just getting started. (Publishers Weekly (starred review))
Confronting domestic and global white supremacy, this provocative text documents and demonstrates what has been done and what needs doing nationally and internationally to realize racial justice and equality. It deserves reading and discussion by anyone interested in social transformation. (Library Journal)
An essential overview of race relations, racial violence, and civil rights activism in the United States and other parts of the globe
