  • The Wheel of Servitudeby Daniel A. Novak

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Emancipation brought an end to many of the evils of slavery, but it did not do away with involuntary servitude in the South. Even during Reconstruction, state legislatures passed laws that bound laborers to the landowner with a nearly unbreakable tie -- which still chains many a rural black to what a 1914 Supreme Court ruling called an "ever-turning... more...

  • The Negro's Image in the Southby Claude H. Nolen

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Symbolic of the historic conflict between North and South has been the South's attitude toward African Americans. This historical study presents a thorough analysis -- derived from books, periodicals, speeches, sermons, lectures, and other documents -- of the doctrine of white supremacy. more...

  • A Biographical Dictionary of Early American Jewsby Joseph R. Rosenbloom

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Here is a virtually complete list of persons identifiable as Jews in America by 1800, the result of a thorough search of manuscript materials and published literature for the names of Jews who lived in America (including Canada up to 1783) during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. No other study provides comparable information for such an ethnic... more...

  • Free Men in an Age of Servitudeby Lee H. Warner

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Freedom did not solve the problems of the Proctor family. Nor did money, recognition, or powerful supporters. As free blacks in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century America, three generations of Proctor men were permanently handicapped by the social structures of their time and their place. They subscribed to the Western, middle-class value system that... more...

  • Legislating Racismby Thomas Adams Upchurch

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 40.00

    The Civil War and Reconstruction were characterized by two lasting legacies -- the failure to bring racial harmony to the South and the failure to foster reconciliation between the North and South. The nation was left with a festering race problem, as a white-dominated society and political structure debated the +proper role for blacks. At the national... more...

  • The Seed Of Sally Good'nby Ruth Polk Patterson

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 25.00

    Spencer Polk was born of an African-Indian slave woman known as Sally, and her master, Taylor Polk, a descendant of one of America's first families and one of the earliest white settlers in the Arkansas Territory. A favored slave, Spencer Polk became a prosperous farmer and landowner in southwestern Arkansas and the founder of a numerous and energetic... more...

  • The Shame of Southern Politicsby Leslie Dunbar; Dan T. Carter

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    As a leader of the Southern Regional Council in the early 1960s, and later as executive director of the Field Foundation, Leslie Dunbar's advocacy and behind-the-scenes organizing made him one of the most significant (but least recognized) people in the civil rights movement. His essays and speeches often helped set the agenda. They also continue... more...

  • UnAfrican Americansby Tunde Adeleke

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Though many scholars will acknowledge the Anglo-Saxon character of black American nationalism, few have dealt with the imperialistic ramifications of this connection. Now, Nigerian-born scholar Tunde Adeleke reexamines nineteenth-century black American nationalism, finding not only that it embodied the racist and paternalistic values of Euro-American... more...

  • The Rest of the Dreamby Wade Hall

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    In The Rest of the Dream, Lyman Johnson, grassroots civil rights leader, tells his own story. All four of Johnson's grandparents were slaves in Tennessee. Yet his father was a college graduate, principal of a black school, and the inspiration for his son's love of justice. Lyman Johnson was born in 1906 during the darkest days of segregation. He... more...
