Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Bullard, an urban sociologist at Texas Southern University, presents a clear overview of the institutionalized racist policies affecting blacks in Houston from the 1866 to the present. Recent "boom and bust" economic conditions have intensified long-standing inequities in conditions and opportunities for Houston's blacks (as throughout the South) in housing, employment, education, business, politics, etc. Bullard exposes the "dark" side of the picture, but also highlights the richness of Houston's black culture and the accomplishments of many individuals and urges the arousal within the black community of a strong, independent group to press actively for improvement. Recommended for academics, professionals, and general readers. Suzanne W. Wood, SUNY Agricultural & Technical Coll. Lib., Alfred
