Contents Notes
The racial divide -- The past : Past history ; Recent history -- The present : Being black: racism and the invidivdual ; Wose problem? racism and society -- The future. In this treasury of over 1,000 quotes, you will find--in the voices of Langston Hughes and the Delany sisters, for example--some of the bittersweet humor that has helped sustain blacks in this country through their long, oppressive history....Melba Patillo Beals--almost forty years after she risked death as a teenager to integrate Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas--writes in her heart-wrenching memoir of that experience: "The task that remains is to cope with our interdependence--to see ourselves reflected in every other human being and to respect and honor our differences." That is the message of this book. (from back cover).
