Children of Fire, Hardback (March 2012)
Ordinary people do not experience history as it is taught by historians. The same people who lived through the Civil War and the eradication of slavery also dealt with the hardships of Reconstruction, so why do we almost always treat them separately? This title challenges this convention to tell the story of generations of African Americans.

Problem of Race in the Twenty-First Century, Paperback (April 2002)» View all books by Thomas C. Holt
An analysis of the changing circumstances of race and racism. This book questions the simultaneous veneration of black celebrities in politics, popular culture and sport, with the diminishing of the average African-American citizen in modern society.
