This new, revised edition traces the history of black North Carolinians from colonial times to 2001. A new chapter examines the expanding political influence of the state’s African Americans and the rise of effective black politicians, along with groundbreaking decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court in two cases that originated in North Carolina.
Three new maps show the state’s congressional districts in 1992, 1997, and 1998. New appendixes list major federal and state offices held by blacks from 1969 to 2002 and offer a chronology of the redistricting of North Carolina’s congressional districts from 1991 to 2001.
Ninety-four black-and-white illustrations enhance the text.
