A History of African-Americans in North Carolina
(2nd Revised Edition, 2011)
Jeffrey J. Crow, Paul D. Escott, and Flora J. Hatley Wadelington
Originally published in 1992, A History of African Americans
in North Carolina was the first one-volume survey of black history in the state. It traced the story of black North Carolinians from the colonial period into the 1990s. A revised edition was issued in 2002 that included a new chapter examining the expanding political influence of North Carolina’s African Americans and the rise of effective black politicians.
This new, second revised edition brings the discussion through the historic presidential election of Barack Obama in 2008. The book has been completely re-typeset and includes a new cover, a number of new illustrations, and an updated index. Paperbound. Pp. xii, 292. Illus. Index. (2nd rev. ed., 2011)
