    I am currently re reading this book Marable reframes the World War II era through Civil Rights all the way up to the George Bush Era as a Second Reconstruction First of all this revelation is revolutionary It was a reconstruction with America trying to figure out how to deal once again with the Negro problem However this time the Negro African American population was able to exert much political economic and social power and frame its own vision and goals Marable recognizes that history never repeats itself except in our imaginations but in the preface he states Despite a series of successive legislative and judicial victories the burden of racial ineuality continued to weigh most heavily upon black Americans Marable's book offers new perspectives on African American and American history race relations and in the Obama era of post racialism he offers a new lens for us to reconsider the remaining race problem in America the fact that racial disparities are still very much alive and deeply seated in our culture However Marable's vision is one of hope He understands that progress has been made and that progress is a slow process Rather than complaining Marable's text is of a call to action For this reason and to honor this great scholar of American history I'm re reading this text to get deeper into the thought process of Marable I invite you to join me

    Super eye opening Very dense it took me forever to get through all of it but incredibly enlightening Hard to tell if the anti capitalist bent is excessive bias or just the truth can capitalism coexist with racial euality? I don't think so but I still felt like Marable was a little heavy handed in his emphasis on socialist or communist activism Also would've enjoyed a little on black feminismwomanismintersectionality but otherwise found this book invaluable


  3. Daniel Lee Daniel Lee says:

    Fairly spectacular book which not only covered the strengths and faults of well known names like MLK jr Malcom X Medgar Evars and Rosa Parks but also revered radical stalwarts like Huey P Newton and other leaders of the black power movement and the great weaknesses of many leaders who focused to wholly on race to the detriment of gender or patriarchy considerations or class while refusing to admit race as a factor and as a result highlighting the reality of a modern organizer who lives in a inter sectional reality that refuses o disconnect the struggles of women people of color trans people and people from each other Encouraging to read something so connected from 1990 Points for covering the American Indian Movement AIM and a good part of the Latino farm workers movement and for pointing out the misogyny of leaders who only wanted to focus on race and the racism of leaders who chose to focus only on class

    Marable does not fail to impress his audience with this work that sheds much light on the events and movements that helped to socially and politically shape the period known as the second reconstruction in African American history as well as those that contributed to its failure


  5. John Beeler John Beeler says:

    A polemic to be sure but nevertheless compelling

    uintessential reading for those who want a hand understanding how our nation both accepted and rejected the liberal aims of the Civil Rights Movement Marable is masterful


  10. David Hollingsworth David Hollingsworth says:

    This is the best book on the Civil Rights Movement and its aftermath I've ever read It's a look at the history of what Marable calls the Second Reconstruction which he also calls the black freedom struggle It's a well researched readable account that pays mind to the intersection of race class and militarism As a historian I cannot recommend this enough
