Barack Obama and the Rise and Decline of Black Politics

Fredrick Harris

Transgressing Boundaries: Studies in Black Politics and Black Communities

  • Highly original account of Obama's rise and how it spelled the end of a certain form of black politics in America
  • Connects Obama to the broader history of civil-rights oriented politics that emerged in the 1960s and 1970s and shows how Obama has largely abandoned it
  • Essential reading for anyone interested in how Obama has steered away from the forms of black politics that dominated in the civil rights era
