This second edition of Gloria Browne-Marshall’s (WBAI Producer) seminal work , tracing
the history of racial discrimination in American law from colonial times
to the present, is now available with major revisions. Throughout, she
advocates for freedom and equality at the center, moving from their
struggle for physical freedom in the slavery era to more recent battles
for equal rights and economic equality. From the colonial period to the
present, this book examines education, property ownership, voting
rights, criminal justice, and the military as well as internationalism
and civil liberties by analyzing the key court cases that established
America’s racial system and demonstrating the impact of these court
cases on American society. This edition also includes more on Asians,
Native Americans, and Latinos. Race, Law, and American Society is
highly accessible and thorough in its depiction of the role race has
played, with the sanction of the U.S. Supreme Court, in shaping
virtually every major American social institution.
