The New Black Sociologists follows in the footsteps of 1974’s pioneering text Black Sociologists: Historical and Contemporary Perspectives, by tracing the organization of its forbearer in key thematic ways. This new collection of essays revisits the legacies of significant Black scholars including James E. Blackwell, William Julius Wilson, Joyce Ladner, and Mary Pattillo, but also extends coverage to include overlooked figures like Audre Lorde, Ida B. Wells, James Baldwin and August Wilson - whose lives and work have inspired new generations of Black sociologists on contemporary issues of racial segregation, feminism, religiosity, class, inequality and urban studies. Rather than a culmination of the legacies past, this volume signals a new starting point bearing the gifts inherited and the weight of the all-important work ahead.

Thirty years after the first volume of the Scribner Writers Series , this second Retrospective Supplement follows the path of the first by re-examining some of the most important and influential writers in the American canon-men and women who continue to be studied in high schools and universities as often today as when the American Writers Series first began. Each essay, written by an expert in the field with years of teaching experience, explores the life and work of individu authors. The bio-critical essays on such writers as Ralph Waldo Ellison, Edgar Allan Poe, Kate Chopin, Theodore Dreiser, Isaac Bashevis Singer, Sylvia Plath, and James Baldwin reflect the most recent scholarship on these and other writers of enduring importance.

Wenn in den USA schwarze Teenager von Polizisten ermordet werden, ist das nur ein Problem von individueller Verfehlung? Nein, denn rassistische Gewalt ist fest eingewebt in die amerikanische Identität – sie ist das, worauf das Land gebaut ist. Afroamerikaner besorgten als Sklaven seinen Reichtum und sterben als freie Bürger auf seinen Straßen. In seinem schmerzhaften, leidenschaftlichen Manifest verdichtet Ta-Nehisi Coates amerikanische und persönliche Geschichte zu einem Appell an sein Land, sich endlich seiner Vergangenheit zu stellen. Sein Buch wurde in den USA zum Nr.-1-Bestseller und ist schon jetzt ein Klassiker, auf den sich zukünftig alle Debatten um Rassismus beziehen werden.
