Description

Part documentary anthology, part literature review, and part bibliography, FARTHER TO GO gives students a thorough historical grounding in the field of racial politics. Dr. Gilliam imparts a strong working knowledge of the civil rights movement, as well as the cultural, economic, and psychological nuances underlying the relationship between the black community and the political system. To that end, the text presents significant court cases, speeches, and statutes that allow students to discover the texture of racial politics in America.
