I recently read John Dittmer's excellent Local people : the struggle for civil rights in Mississippi and Neil R. McMillen's Dark journey : black Mississippians in the age of Jim Crow is on my up-next shelf. But there seems to have been very little written on the state of African American rights and life since the civil rights movement. Is anyone aware of a good book on this recent history?
