The Shifting Status of African Americans in the American Collective Identity.
Kook, Rebecca
Journal of Black Studies, V29 n2 p154-78 Nov 1998
Examines the change in status of African Americans in the American collective identity before and after the civil rights movement in the 1960s in terms of exclusion and inclusion. From the 1970s and onward, a gradual process of inclusion in terms of symbolic indicators (textbooks, history books, stamps, holidays) can be observed. (MMU)
