April Book Club Meeting

Book Selection:
An Aristocracy of Color: Race and Reconstruction in California and the West
by D. Michael Bottoms

In the South after the Civil War, the reassertion of white supremacy tended to pit white against black. In the West, by contrast, a radically different drama emerged, particularly in multiracial,
multiethnic California. Nonwhite Californians—blacks and Chinese in particular—recognized an
unprecedented opportunity to reshape the state’s race relations. Drawing on court records, political
debates, and eyewitness accounts, the author brings to life the monumental battle that followed. This book can be purchased at https://smile.amazon.com/s?k=an+aristocracy+of+color&i=stripbooks&ref=nb_sb_noss.
