Who Is Black?

One Nation’s Definition

«<p>“This is a very well-written book that communicates complex ideas with clarity and interest. It is rare, in my experience, for an academic book written by a social scientist to be as interesting and exciting as a piece of fiction. This book is hard to put down because Davis’s story of how the United States as a nation came to define who is black reads like a mystery novel in which every historical event provides one more clue to the final murder of a people.”</p><p>—Aida Hurtado, <i>American Journal of Sociology</i></p>»

This text aims to help students understand America's history of miscegenation and the role the "one-drop rule" has played in it. The author examines challenges to the one-drop rule, including the multiracial identity movement and the census classification of racial groups. Les mer

«<p>“This is an eye-opening appraisal of an issue often taken for granted in America.”</p><p>—<i>Publishers Weekly</i></p>»

«<p>“Davis has given us a brilliant and informative history of the fateful policy commonly called the rule of hypodescent (the ‘one-drop’ rule) and the impact it has had psychologically, socially, economically, and politically on African-American history. Davis’s book is the most recent in the series of works written on this topic, but is by far the most thorough and insightful.”</p><p>—G. Reginald Daniel, <i>Contemporary Sociology</i></p>»

F. James Davis is Professor Emeritus of Sociology at Illinois State University and the author of Society and the Law (1962), Social Problems (1970), and Minority-Dominant Relations (1978).
