Black Studies emerged from the tumultuous social and civil rights movements of the 1960s and empowered African Americans to look at themselves in new ways and pass on a dignified version of Black history. However, it also enriched traditional disciplines in profound and significant ways. With an all-star cast of contributors, the Black Studies Reader takes on the history and future of this multi-faceted academic field. Topics include Black Feminism, Cultural Politics, Black Activism, Lesbian and Gay Issues, African American literature and film, education, and religion. This authoritative collection takes a critical look at the current state of Black Studies and speculates on where it may go from here.
