            Public Image Private Shame will help students look, in depth, at the modern civil rights movement of the 1950s to mid 1970s. Importantly, this book provides exciting new material that encourages students to see that the modern movement belonged to a tradition of protest that firs...t began on the shores of Africa and continues to this day. A special feature of Public Image Private Shame provides fresh perspectives from a range of people, including movement leaders, grassroots supporters, white supremacists and political leaders. The last two chapters of the book invite students to examine race relations in the US today, and in particular, the importance, impact and issues surrounding Barack Obama's meteoric rise in becoming the nation's first democratically elected African-American president. The content of this book and the depth at which it is written means it can be studied at Level 1 and Level 2.
