Introduction to Africana Demography
Lessons from Founders E. Franklin Frazier, W.E.B. Du Bois, and the Atlanta School of Sociology

A timely and necessary revitalization of the traditions of Black Sociology and critical demography accomplished by bringing the two together as Africana Demography.

Introduction to Africana Demography: Lessons from Founders E. Franklin Frazier, W.E.B. Du Bois, and the Atlanta School of Sociology brings together scholars from across the country to wed Black Sociology with critical demography within an Africana Demography framework.

The volume's wide range of contributors lay out innovative ways to address pressing issues and in the process affords many scholars often denied their rightful place in the sociological and demographic canons the opportunity to build on one another's work. The book includes an introduction outlining Africana demography and chapters that provide a critique of conventional demographic approaches to understanding race and social institutions like the family, religion, and the criminal justice system.

Contributors include: Lori Latrice Martin, Anthony Hill, Melinda Jackson-Jefferson, Maretta McDonald, Weldon McWilliams, Jack S. Monell, Edward Muhammad, Brianne Painia, Tifanie Pulley, David I. Rudder, Jas M. Sullivan, Arthur Whaley, and Deadric Williams.
