The 20th century, marked by dramatic socioeconomic, cultural, and technological changes, greatly altered the value systems of many Americans. Three Black Generations at the Crossroads: Community, Culture, and Consciousness looks at how these values shifted within the black community and asks the question: Can African Americans successfully confront the challenges of the continuing color line in the 21st century? Exploring generational differences in the black community, this second edition contains new chapters on politicians and artists, two groups that are symbolic of the new occupations that have emerged since the post-civil rights era. Benjamin also addresses the necessity for resiliency and survival within the black community to endure continuing transformations as we move into the 21st century.

About the Author:

Lois Benjamin is professor of Sociology at Hampton University in Hampton, Virginia, and the author of The Black Elite, Second Edition.

Review:

Professor Benjamin has produced a remarkable volume combining revealing biographies of achieving African American women and men with highly trenchant analyses of the sociological and ecological environments which produced them, aided and hindered them, and ultimately, benefited from their presence. Three Generations is a tour de force in American history, biography, sociology, and African American studies. (Andrew Billingsley)

Three Black Generations at the Crossroads is an outstanding look at the workings of structural and cultural changes affecting the African American collective consciousness in the post-civil rights era. Linking personal biographies with institutional contradictions, Lois Benjamin brilliantly captures the divergent worldviews and value orientations across three generations of professionals in the black community. Beautifully and engagingly written, Three Black Generations is essential reading for Americans concerned with the future of America. (Frank Harold Wilson, Associate professor of sociology at the university of Wisconsin, Milwaukee and author of Race, Class, and the Postindustrial Cit)

Praise for the First Edition: Benjamin has provided a neat structure to understand 20th-century US cultural values through the window of the African American community. . . . The book's strength is in the autobiographical tales recounted . . . from theinterviews of historical figures whose lives embody the categories Benjamin is offering. The categorization may aid education, but the storytelling is what evokes empathy and identification. The stories teach all ages; the analysis teaches high school students and above. Recommended for a variety of readers and students of the 20th century... (CHOICE)
