Grade 7-10-- An examination of racism, with emphasis on its historic development and implications for the future. Questions conclude each chapter, serving as review and to provoke thinking. An introduction paves the way with basic information and a concrete definition of terms. Mizell's premise that the history of racism in the U. S. is the history of people of color launches a complete and specific analysis. Chapters are devoted to studies that provide a timely and scathingly honest evaluation of Columbus, the slave trade and slavery laws, Jim Crow and lynch laws, white supremacist groups, relations with Mexican and Japanese Americans (including the latter's internment during World War II), etc. An in-depth appendix includes organizations, periodicals, and more. This is an invaluable companion to Patricia McKissack's Taking a Stand against Racism and Racial Discrimination (Watts, 1990); Elaine Pascoe's Racial Prejudice (Watts, 1985), which provides a less detailed overview; and Kathlyn Gay's Bigotry (Enslow, 1989), which has an emphasis on 20th-century perspectives. Mizell sets a standard in her provocative examination and coverage, exposing long held myths and generating thoughtful introspection on the issues. Extensive, well documented, concise, and well written. --Celia A. Huffman, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Cleveland
