About this product
- DescriptionThe disparity between the ideal, a democratic America, and the reality, racial oppression and poverty, is so great that serious voices among blacks, students, and others challenged the ethical foundations of the nation in the 1960s. Local political organizations emerging out of black ghettos led a black revolt, asserting a revolutionary black nationalism rather than social reform and integration. For those blacks, white America could longer dictate right and wrong, and certainly could longer tell blacks how best to pursue their goals. Th is feeling was so strong among the adherents of the new militant movements formed under the political symbolism of black power that they questioned all white ethical institutions. These new movements bargained and contended with whites, even worked closely with them for many purposes, but always with suspicion and caution. White Ethics and Black Power describes racial relations during this period. It examines the careers and philosophies of the leadership of a community organization, illuminating the complex relationship between white America and the new black power movements, between America and its interpretation of itself on the one hand, and the experience of black and oppressed peoples in America on the other. Redefi ning social science as a means-through education and research-of improving the quality of American life, William Ellis derides n-participatory social science as a hoax and asks the social scientist to make clear his moral commitment: to the people he studies or to the establishment that funds him. Controversial in its ideology, its passion, and its scorn of racist America, this volume remains the only openly partisan social scientifi c analysis into the nature of this American crisis. Readers may t agree with the views expressed by the author, but they cant igre this book's relevance to any understanding of blackwhite relationships. Unique in the literature, White Ethics and Black Power t only explains black power, but off ers hope for meaningful change.
