“A fascinating window onto the social and political life of the educated [African American] elite during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Many of the documents are particularly rich because of personal voice.”—Evelyn Brooks Higginbotham, editor-in-chief of The Harvard Guide to African-American History
“This rich documentary collection and its helpful interpretative section, clear, nuanced, well-researched, is an education and a pleasure to read.”—Alfred A. Moss Jr., coauthor of From Slavery to Freedom: A History of African Americans
