About this product
- DescriptionIn American history, students are taught about the three branches of government. Most of the time is spent learning about the Executive and the Legislative bodies, but the Judicial branch has had a monumental effect on the course of American history, and where is this more apparent than in the area of civil rights.

The sources covered include key Supreme Court decisions, some opinions from other courts as well, and texts written by ordinary people - the victims and perpetrators of racism and the lawmakers who wrote the statutes the courts must interpret. With helpful headtes and introductions, Race and National Power: A Sourcebook of Black Civil Rights from 1862 to 1954 is the perfect resource for anyone studying legal history or race in America.
