Whose Harlem Is This, Anyway? : Community Politics and Grassroots Activism during the New Negro Era by Shannon King( )

13 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 1,092 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Harlem of the early twentieth century was more than just the stage upon which black intellectuals, poets and novelists, and painters and jazz musicians created the New Negro Renaissance. It was also a community of working people and black institutions who combated the daily and structural manifestations of racial, class, and gender inequality within Harlem and across the city. New Negro activists, such as Hubert Harrison and Frank Crosswaith, challenged local forms of economic and racial inequality. Insurgent stay-at-home black mothers took negligent landlords to court, complaining to magistrates about the absence of hot water and heat in their apartment buildings. Black men and women, propelling dishes, bricks, and other makeshift weapons from their apartment windows and their rooftops, retaliated against hostile policemen harassing blacks on the streets of Harlem. From the turn of the twentieth century to the Great Depression, black Harlemites mobilized around local issues -- such as high rents, jobs, leisure, and police brutality -- to make their neighborhood an autonomous black community. In this book, Shannon King argues that Harlemite's mobilization for community rights raised the black community's racial consciousness and established Harlem's political culture. By the end of the 1920s, Harlem had experienced a labor strike, a tenant campaign for affordable rents, and its first race riot. These public forms of protest and discontent represented the dress rehearsal for black mass mobilization in the 1930s and 1940s. By studying blacks' investment in community politics, King makes visible the hidden stirrings of a social movement deeply invested in a Black Harlem

What's the point? : a morphological study of small bone points from Nuu-chah-nulth territory, Vancouver Island, B.C. by Shannon King( Book )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Small bone points are abundant in midden sites on the southwest coast of Vancouver Island suggesting that fishing was a frequent activity. However, links between point morphology and specific fishing activities are tenuous. This thesis critically examines the functional interpretation of small bone points using ethnographic sources, existing collections, use wear, and morphological data. I use eighteen subjective categories to describe the morphological variation in small bone points. I document the intra-category variation and overlap between categories using quantitative analyses. By identifying and analysing these eighteen morphological categories, I highlight potentially meaningful variations in the assemblages. I conclude that describing and exploring the variation within subjective types will increase the consistency of future typological analyses
