The Crucible of Black Criminality
This chapter introduces the main concepts of the book, its largest arguments, and the theories of historical study and criminology that they are imbedded in. It also lays out all of the archival materials used to make these arguments, and what methodologies are used regarding those documents. Finally, it introduces the theoretical framework called “the crucible of black criminality” which makes an assertion about how a number of historical factors have created the circumstances where crime among African Americans can sometimes be understood as resistance.
