It is a very important book written by the former president of the American Sociological Association, Dr.  Joe Feagin and Dr.  Karyn McKinney, an expert in sociology.  Racial inequalities concern everybody, and society as a whole pays for it because people are interrelated.  The race relations problematic may represent a threat to democracy.  Therefore, the impacts of racism are broad, they can affect mental and/or physical health, the quality of life economically, socially, professionally, and so on.  Discrimination may be covert or overt.  In other words, it takes different forms.   Readers can see an excerpt of the book by clicking this link:  http://www.megadiversities.com/index.php?option=com_content.

This brilliant and hard-hitting autobiography was written by renowned author and journalist Alex Haley. It portrays Malcolm X (El-Hajj Malek El-Shabazz (in Arabic: الحاج مالك الشباز) who did not wear a White mask, a concept popularized by the late famous psychiatrist Dr. Fanon. Malcolm X openly and bluntly denounced discrimination suffered by Black people. He was against compromise and did not hesitate to denounce the Uncle Toms of his time as well as the duplicity of people claiming to be allies of Blacks. He blamed the enemies of African-Americans. In the book, readers will discover his transformation as well as his paradigm based on a Pan-Africanist vision notably reinforced following his trips to Africa and the Middle East. Malcolm X was an intrepid, resilient, fascinating and complex character due to the fact that after finding himself in delinquency, he converted within the prison environment into an autodidact and tribune. In addition, he adopted Islam as a new religion to become a preacher and activist. Malcolm X also knew how to transform himself on a personal level. He got married and became a family man. He loved his wife and children thoroughly.

Land of the Free

33rd President Harry S. Truman became the first president to speak directly with the NAACP.. He was also the first president to speak of the equality of Black Americans and denounce discrimination and violence against them.  His actions helped increase awareness among White Americans of the harm caused by racial discrimination.

After World War II ended in 1945, there was an increase in civil rights activities in the Black community with a sharp focus on removing the Jim Crow obstacles that made voting difficult for them.  President Truman urged Congress to abolish the poll tax and enforce fair voting and hiring practices.
