African American Civil Rights in the Age of Obama : A History and A Handbook
AFRICAN AMERICAN CIVIL RIGHTS IN THE AGE OF OBAMA: A HISTORY AND A HANDBOOK, by Prof. Harold McDougall of the Howard University School of Law is a look at some of the remaining trouble spots in black-white relations in the United States today, with the benefit of the Obama Administration's first year in office as a backdrop. The book begins with racial profiling, a topic particularly charged as a consequence of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates' arrest in his own home, for disorderly conduct, by Cambridge, Massachusetts police. Other trouble spots include hate crimes, discrimination against consumers, employment discrimination, voting rights, housing discrimination and discrimination in public education.
