Editorial Reviews

Review

"[This book makes a very important contribution to the field of African American literary and cultural studies. . . . It present[s the many facets of Murray’s intellectual odyssey . . . [illuminating his contribution to our national discussion on race, as well as his germinal insights on music, visual art, and literature."
—Herman Beavers, author of Wrestling Angels into Song: The Fictions of Ernest J. Gaines and James Alan McPherson


"I appreciated the way the voices ‘sound’ in the volume, from Murray’s own voice, through criticism, back to Murray in interviews, and on to other voices. It has the feeling of an ensemble—or, to use one of Mr. Murray’s metaphors, a jazz band, with Murray’s voice ‘taking the break’ at key points. The melody is Murray, and there are countless riffs on his work."
—Carolyn J. Medine, coeditor of Teaching African American Religions
