Editorial Reviews

Review

In this concise, compelling volume, Rooks . . . recreates the social and political contexts of the discipline's history, paying particular attention to its past reliance on white philanthropy and involvement. . . A must for anyone working in the field.
-Publishers Weekly

"Rooks is a serious scholar and insider of African American studies, and this book is full of deep insight and sharp analysis."--Cornel West

"A provocative and original history of the relationship between philanthropy, politics and the emergence of Black Studies. White Money/Black Power will become central to discussions and debates about the origins and future of this dynamic and transformative intellectual project."--Farah Jasmine Griffin, author of If You Can't Be Free, Be a Mystery: In Search of Billie Holiday
