Summary
Hard-hitting and compelling, the overriding theme of this book is the struggle against what the author argues is, and has been, America's most pernicious ailment and indestructible obstacle to black progress: racism. Historiography is also addressed to give readers a flavor of the real world of academics and black history writing with its ongoing debates, dramas, conflicts, and politics. The prose is lively and opinionated, forceful yet accessible. Going far beyond the traditional textbook treatment of black history, it is a fascinating book for those interested in African-American history, the African Diaspora, race relations, ethnic and cultural studies, or for those wanting to explore this chapter of United States history
