图书简介
Illuminating the class issues that shaped the racial uplift movement, this title explores the ideology and policies of the Urban League’s activities in New York and Chicago during the first half of the twentieth century. It traces the Urban League’s ideology to the famed Chicago School of Sociology.Illuminating the class issues that shaped the racial uplift movement, Toure Reed explores the ideology and policies of the Urban League’s activities in New York and Chicago during the first half of the twentieth century. Reed argues that racial uplift in the Urban League reflected many of the class biases pervading contemporaneous social reform movements, resulting in an emphasis on behavioral, rather than structural, remedies to the disadvantages faced by African Americans.Reed traces the Urban League’s ideology to the famed Chicago School of Sociology. The Chicago School offered Leaguers powerful scientific tools with which to foil the thrust of eugenics. However, Reed argues, concepts such as ethnic cycle and social disorganization and reorganization led the League to embrace behavioral models of uplift that reflected a deep circumspection about poor African Americans and fostered a preoccupation with the needs of middle-class blacks. According to Reed, the League’s reform endeavors from the migration era through World War II oscillated between projects to "adjust" or even "contain" unacculturated African Americans and projects intended to enhance the status of the African American middle class. Reed’s analysis complicates the mainstream account of how particular class concerns and ideological influences shaped the League’s vision of group advancement as well as the consequences of its endeavors.
