Abstract:

"The twentieth century, marked by dramatic socioeconomic, cultural, and technological changes, greatly altered the value systems of many Americans. Three Black Generations at the Crossroads: Community, Culture, and Consciousness looks at how these values shifted within the black community and asks the question: Can African Americans successfully confront the challenges of the continuing color line in the twenty-first century?" "Exploring generational differences in the black community, this second edition contains new chapters on politicians and artists, two groups that are symbolic of the new occupations that have emerged since the post-civil rights era. Lois Benjamin addresses the necessity for resiliency and survival within the black community to endure continuing transformations as we move into the twenty-first century."--Jacket.
