African Americans in Pennsylvania: Shifting Historical Perspectives
Co-editor: Eric Ledell Smith. Chapters emphasize the interplay of class and race from the origins of the Commonwealth during the seventeenth century, through the era of deindustrialization in the late twentieth century. We see not only poor and working-class people but also educated business and professional people. And despite the traditional focus on the experiences of black men, this volume includes significant research on black women. Paperback. Pennsylvania Hist. & Museum Co, 1997. 519 pages.
