Get It Together is a thematically-organized reader that focuses on issues and events that concern African Americans and promotes critical thinking about how these issues impact the lives of all Americans. An underlying notion of the book is that the key issues for African Americans have not substantially changed through American history. The readings were chosen to assert a need for initiative on the part of the student writer and encourage change through analysis, research, discussion, and involvement. Students are presented with the opportunity to formulate their own initiatives to get it together.
