With a view that behavioralism has distorted perceptions of black political activity, Hanes Walton, Jr., here reformulates the assumptions of behavioralism to arrive at a more realistic understanding of the political actions of black Americans. Considering the cultural and historical events that have shaped black lives, Walton examines voting patterns, socialization, and the development of political opinion. his analysis of leadership includes not only legislative and judicial leaders, but also leaders of those organizations so influential in black political culture: civil rights, churches, and grassroots organizations. Whether he looks at how local politics have changed through the years of civil rights action or how blacks’ ideas on foreign policy have developed, Walton provides a long-needed reassessment of the role of black participation in American politics.

Review:

“This book will fill a critical void in the analysis and interpretation of black politics. It displays an encyclopedic knowledge of both older studies and newer, more innovative research efforts.” ― William E. Nelson, Jr., Ohio State University
