Post-Soul Nation

The Explosive, Contradictory, Triumphant, and Tragic 1980s as Experienced by Afr ican Americans (Previously Known as Blacks and Before That Negroes)



One of the foremost chroniclers of the contemporary black experience offers an undeluded perspective on the 1980s. Here are crack, AIDS, and the Reagan rollback of the major advances of the civil rights movement. But Nelson George also shows how black performers, athletes, and activists made increasing inroads into the mainstream. This fast-paced, chronological retrospective profiles personalities from Bill Cosby to Louis Farrakhan and explores such flashpoints as the first rap single and the infamous Willie Horton ad campaign.On the web: http://www.nelsongeorge.com/
