The African American Press Examines "The Bell Curve": An Annotated Bibliography.
Zulu, Itibari M.
"The Bell Curve: Intelligence and Class Structure in American Life" by Richard J. Herrnstein and Charles Murray (New York: Free Press, 1994) has become one of the most controversial books of recent years. The crux of the controversy, the relationship between race and intelligence, has touched a nerve in the African American community. This non-exhaustive annotated bibliography provides insight into the reactions of the African American press and the African American ethos concerning rage, intelligence, politics, and social class. Thirty-three sources are listed. (SLD)
