No one has written more about the African American experience in Missouri over the past four decades than Gary Kremer, and now for the first time fourteen of his best articles on the subject are available in one place with the publication of Race and Meaning: The African American Experience in Missouri. By placing the articles in chronological order of historical events rather than by publication date, Kremer combines them into one detailed account that addresses issues such as the transition from slavery to freedom for African Americans in Missouri, all-black rural communities, and the lives of African Americans seeking new opportunities in Missouris cities. In addition to his previously published articles, Kremer includes a personal introduction revealing how he first became interested in researching African American history and how his education at Lincoln University--and specifically the influence of his mentor, Lorenzo Greene--helped him to realize his eventual career path. Race and Meaning makes a collection of largely unheard stories spanning much of Missouri history accessible for the first time in one place, allowing each article to be read in the context of the others, and creating a whole that is much greater than the sum of its parts. Whether you are a student, researcher, or general reader, this book will be essential to anyone with an interest in Missouri history.

Recensioner i media

"Each essay answers many questions in regard to race being a cultural construction that was used as a tool to dehumanize. Kremer tells how people maneuvered social and political oppression and conjured the will to survive in the most dismal circumstances. In addition to these lessons, the epilogue in Race and Meaning provides a list of new sources available to Missouri history researchers. Overall, the author tells us why this type of work is important, and like any public historian, he provides directives on how to do it."--Arkansas Review "Thematically cogent and highly readable, Race and Meaning is a useful collection for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as general readers, seeking familiarity with the state's past or interested in African American historiography."--Kansas History "A crash course in African American history from the end of the Civil War to the 1960s."--Missouri Life
