"Free at Last? accomplishes the heroic task of being interdisciplinary, integrated, and innovative. Battle, Bennett, and Lemelle bring together a diverse group of scholars across disciplines, locales, methods, and career stages to produce a comprehensive volume that goes beyond the important, but expected, topics of class and gender, to include analyses of sexuality, interracial relationships, urban politics, health, and protest. This is truly a breakthrough in our conceptualization of the black agenda."--Mary Pattillo, Associate Professor of Sociology and African American Studies, Northwestern University
