The slave community : plantation life in the antebellum South by John W Blassingame( Book )

51 editions published between 1972 and 1981 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is one of the first historical studies of slavery in the United States to be presented from the perspective of the enslaved. This work contradicted those historians who had interpreted history to suggest that African American slaves were docile and submissive who enjoyed the benefits of a paternalistic master-slave relationship on Southern plantations. Using psychology, the author analyzes fugitive slave narratives published in the 19th century to conclude that an independent culture developed among the enslaved and that there were a variety of personality types exhibited by slaves. He asserts that by concentrating on the slave owner, historians have presented a distorted view of plantation life that "strips the slave of any meaningful and distinctive culture, family life, religion, or manhood."

Reissued for the first time in over thirty years, Black New Orleans explores the twenty-year period in which the city's black population more than doubled. Meticulously researched and replete with archival illustrations from newspapers and rare periodicals, John W. Blassingame's groundbreaking history offers a unique look at the economic and social life of black people in New Orleans during Reconstruction. Not a conventional political treatment, Blassingame's history instead emphasizes the educational, religious, cultural, and economic activities of African Americans during the late nineteenth
New perspectives on Black studies by John W Blassingame( Book )

11 editions published between 1971 and 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 923 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this collection have been compiled in an effort to answer some of the complex questions posed by Black Studies. Nathan Hare, Roger Rischer, June Jordan, Michelle Russell, and DeVere E. Pentony explain the rationale for Black Studies. They contend that such programs would help the Negro to form a clearer sense of his own worth and white men to accept him as a human being. They insist that such programs are essential in the formation of a black intelligentsia and efforts to improve the black community. The essays in Part Two focus on some of the problems involved in the establishment of Black Studies programs. Kenneth Clark and Stephen Lythcott debate the advisability of establishing programs which exclude whites. Eldon Johnson, Jack J. Cardoso, Clark, Eugene Genovese, W. Arthur Lewis, and John Blassingame call for a more dispassionate approach to the whole question. Joanna Schneider, Robert Zangrando, and Blassingame argue that the historian by his moral insensitivity or conscious efforts to support white supremacy has made the Negro the "invisible man" of American history. The Appendix contains a Model Program in Afro-American Studies prepared by several scholars. Discussing the rationale, the objectives, and the courses which should be included in Black Studies, these scholars claim that their Model can be used as a point of departure for colleges which are planning or reviewing such programs.

The Booker T. Washington papers by Booker T Washington( Book )

4 editions published between 1972 and 1975 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is the first of fifteen volumes in a project C. Vann Woodward has called "the single most important research enterprise now under way in the field of American black history." Volume 1 contains Washington's Up from Slaver, one of the most widely read American autobiographies, The Story of My Life and Work, and six other autobiographical writings. They are a good first step toward understanding Washington because they reveal the moral values he absorbed from his min-nineteenth-century experiences and teachers, and they present him to the world as he wished to be seen: the black version of the American success hero and the exemplar of the Puritan work ethic, which he believed to be the secret of his success. His writings served a success model for many blacks who wished to overcome poverty and prejudice
