From 1865 to 1919, African American literature had racial uplift as its central mission.

Race Riots and Resistance uncovers a long-hidden, tragic chapter of American history. Focusing on the «Red Summer» of 1919 in which black communities were targeted by white mobs, the book examines the contexts out of which white racial violence arose. It shows how the riots transcended any particularity of cause, and in doing so calls into question many longstanding beliefs about racial violence. The book goes on to portray the riots as a phenomenon, documenting the number of incidents, describing the events in detail, and analyzing the patterns that emerge from looking at the riots collectively. Finally and significantly, Race Riots and Resistance argues that the response to the riots marked an early stage of what came to be known as the Civil Rights Movement.

This is an interesting study. Voogd's research is impeccable. His focus is not on the depth of each incident, but the key aspects that these ncidents share and some that distinguish them as well. Very thoughtful and enlightening analysis of these incidents that reveals how the national mood following WWI and all of the concomitant changes, fears, and stresses created an atmosphere where normally law-abiding citizens could participate in a violent assault on the African American community.

As the author makes clear in the introduction, the race riots of 1919 are often overlooked in the history of American race relations; a few major events have received the recognition they deserve (e.g. the Chicago riot in William Tuttle's *Race Riot: Chicago in the Red Summer of 1919*) but many more event have been effectively ignored. Voogd makes a signal contribution in remediating this omission in the historical literature. An indefatigable researcher, Voogd has read deeply and visited archives all over the country to document at least 26 riots. That list alone, and the description of each riot, makes this an extremely useful addition to the bookshelf of anyone interested in race relations, African-American history, or the post-WW I period. Voogd also provides an intriguing taxonomy of the riots in an attempt to identify why so many riots in such disparate parts of the country erupted at this time. Drawing from a number of the social science as well as the humanities, the author provides a provocative explanatory model that every future investigator of the red summer will need to contend with.
