Blackballed: The Black Vote and US Democracy, By Darryl Pinckney

Blackballed: The Black Vote and US Democracy,

Blackballed is Darryl Pinckney’s meditation on a
century and a half of participation by blacks in US
electoral politics. In this combination of memoir,
historical narrative, and contemporary political and
social analysis, he investigates the struggle for black
voting rights from Reconstruction through the civil
rights movement to Barack Obama’s two presidential
campaigns. Drawing on the work of scholars, the
memoirs of civil rights workers, and the speeches
and writings of black leaders like Martin Luther King
and Stokely Carmichael, Andrew Young and John Lewis,
Pinckney traces the disagreements among blacks about
the best strategies for achieving equality in American
society as well as the ways in which they gradually
came to create the Democratic voting bloc that
contributed to the election of the first black president.
