Author(s): Steven A. Reich
Contributors: Reich, Steven;
Abstract:

This two-volume set is a thematically-arranged encyclopedia covering the social, political, and material culture of America during the Jim Crow Era.


• Gives readers hard to find but important details about the daily lives of African Americans during the Jim Crow era

• Offers insights based on social history into the daily experiences of the average person, engaging students' curiosity rather than focusing on the events, dates, and names of "traditional history"

• Presents information within a thematic organization that encourages a more in-depth study of specific aspects of daily life under Jim Crow

• Includes related primary documents that enable students to view history more directly and reach their own conclusions about past events

• Examines a wide range of topics such as work, family life, clothing and fashion, food and drink, housing and community, politics, social customs, and spirituality

• Provides a general introduction to each volume, individual topic introductions, numerous images and illustrations, a timeline of events, and a bibliography identifying print and non-print resources
