The Legend of the Black Mecca: Politics and Class in the Making of Modern Atlanta

in his own words...

"Grappling with the historiography of the new African American urban history and American Civil Rights/Black Power/Black Freedom movement while simultaneously reckoning with the rise of neo-liberalism, The Legend of the Black Mecca tells an intra-racial narrative history of Atlanta that details Black political and class tensions in the modern urban South."
