Summary: This is a study of how the term "'black' has been defined in US race relations.The US has a distinctive one-drop-of-blood definition: one is socially and categorically 'black' if any known ancestor had African ancestry.This contrasts . . . with other definitions of race, especially those in countries like South Africa and Brazil where mixed-race persons (for example, black/white mulattoes) are categorized as a separate group.Davis tracks the development of defin moreition of race in US history, law, and practice, from its origins in slavery to the present."(Choice)Bibliography.Index. less
