“How, specifically, did Europe underdevelop Africa?”

  • Ta-Nehisi Coates, “Between the World and Me”

“How do we ever expect to constitute a vibrant society?”

  • Cornel West, “Race Matters”

“Why are racial structures reproduced in the first place?”

  • Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, “Racism without Racists”

“Can [men] remain real if they do not engage in violence?”

  • Patricia Hill Collins, “Black Sexual Politics”

INDUSTRIAL SEGREGATION responds to a multitude of similar questions by applying intersectional analyses to understand race in the twentieth century as specific form of ideological technology. To wit, race in the last century differed from the same idea in the nineteenth century or the eighteenth century. Focusing on the events and voices between Reconstruction and the Civil Rights Movement, David Goldberg and Walter Greason show readers the economic, political, social, and cultural foundations of white supremacy as products of an emerging industrial order. From the regimentation of the plantation in the early nineteenth century through the rigidity of commodity and financial markets at the start of the Cold War, INDUSTRIAL SEGREGATION shows multiple ways that orthodoxies of racial judgement and free market economics continuously intersected fueling networks of entrenched inequality for a century.

Goldberg and Greason present a powerful, innovative teaching tool that will inspire teachers and students in pursuit of human dignity and social justice.
