Black Arts West

From postwar efforts to end discrimination in the motion-picture industry, recording studios, and musicians’ unions, through the development of community-based arts organizations, to the creation of searing films critiquing conditions in the black working class neighborhoods of a city touting its multiculturalism—Black Arts West documents the social and political significance of African American arts activity in Los Angeles between the Second World War and the riots of 1992. Focusing on the lives and work of black writers, visual artists, musicians, and filmmakers, Daniel Widener tells how black cultural politics changed over time, and how altered political realities generated new forms ...

While general patterns in the juvenile outmigration of Pacific salmon are well known, the proximate mechanisms informing migration in individuals are still poorly understood. This thesis describes a complex of individually-based bioenergetic and migration initiation models and their application to fall Chinook salmon. We used the Wisconsin bioenergetics model combined with PIT tag and temperature data to model the growth of individual fish within the rearing habitat. We then created and tested a series of mechanistic models of migration initiation using individual fish mass and growth efficiency as proximate triggers of migration. We examined the performance of these models using CPUE data a...

The Struggle in Black and Brown

It might seem that African Americans and Mexican Americans would have common cause in matters of civil rights. This volume, which considers relations between blacks and browns during the civil rights era, carefully examines the complex and multifaceted realities that complicate such assumptions—and that revise our view of both the civil rights struggle and black-brown relations in recent history. Unique in its focus, innovative in its methods, and broad in its approach to various locales and time periods, the book provides key perspectives to understanding the development of America’s ethnic and sociopolitical landscape. These essays focus chiefly on the Southwest, where Mexican American...

Offering important examples of undocumented histories of black liberation, this volume offers both powerful and poignant examples of 'Black Power Studies' scholarship.

Borderlands Media

Borderlands Media: Cinema and Literature as Opposition to the Oppression of Immigrants, by David E. Toohey, explores the ways in which immigrants, diaspora communities, and their allies use alternative media to reject oppression. This in-depth analysis of the immigrant experience makes use of a mixture of cinema, literary, and other artistic media from 1958 onward, combined with supporting social science and policy documents. Borderlands Media is an essential text for scholars and students engaged in questions of media s effect on the oppression of immigrants and diaspora communities."

Glamour in the Pacific

Since its inception in 1928, the Pan-Pacific Women s Association (PPWA) has witnessed and contributed to enormous changes in world and Pacific history. Operating out of Honolulu, this women s network established a series of conferences that promoted social reform and an internationalist outlook through cultural exchange. For the many women attracted to the project from China, Japan, the Pacific Islands, and the major settler colonies of the region the association s vision was enormously attractive, despite the fact that as individuals and national representatives they remained deeply divided by colonial histories. Glamour in the Pacific tells this multifaceted story by bringing together crit...
