Summary

Summary

"Documentary literature on African American history has largely neglected the significance of the industrial age in transforming the social, economic, and political patterns of black life in the United States. African Americans in the Industrial Age: A Documentary History, 1915-1945 fills that gap by providing a wide selection of documents that re-create the social history of African Americans during this watershed period. Oral life histories, memoirs, letters, newspaper accounts, federal surveillance reports, employment records, and photographs are among the primary sources contained in this work."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
