This second edition features a new preface and acknowledgments, an essay on African American urban history since 1985, a prologue on the antebellum and Civil War roots of Milwaukee’s black community, and an epilogue on the post-World War II years and the impact of deindustrialization, all by the author. Brief essays by four of Trotter’s colleagues–William P. Jones, Earl Lewis, Alison Isenberg, and Kimberly L. Phillips–assess the impact of the original Black Milwaukee on the study of African American urban history over the past twenty years.
