"A critical examination of these important figures, combined with a useful general survey of modern black." American history (about the first edition) The story of black emancipation is one of the most dramatic themes of American history, covering racism, murder, poverty and extreme heroism. Figures such as Malcolm X and Martin Luther King are the demigods of the freedom movements, both film and household figures. Black Leadership in America reveals their characters, histories, families, politics and successes.
