2005 Liberty Legacy Foundation Award, Organization of American Historians Despite black gains in modern America, the end of racism is not yet in sight. Nikhil Pal Singh asks what happened to the worldly, egalitarian visions that animated black intellectual activists from W. E. B. Du Bois in the 1930s to Martin Luther King, Jr. in the 1960s and black militants in the 1970s. In so doing, he constructs an alternative history of civil rights in the twentieth century, in which radical hopes and global dreams are recognized as central to the history of black struggle. "Black is a Country deserves to be widely read; it is the work of a gifted young scholar that promises to provoke a rethinking of classic liberal accounts of race, class and democracy." --Lani Guinier, Harvard Law School and coauthor of The Miner's Canary "Black is a Country is a work of great urgency; it is one of those books you carry with you, read over and over again, and quote often. Singh finds within the black radical critique of U.S. racial capitalism an inclusive, global, and universalist vision which has the potential of renewing democracy and dismantling racism once and for all." --Robin D. G. Kelley, Columbia University and author of Freedom Dreams

Nikhil Pal Singh is Visiting Associate Professor of Social and Cultural Analysis and History Director of the Program in American Studies at New York University.
