I doubt he read a single word of my book, and he is therefore in no position to call it "racist." I would simply point out that Freedom Rising was assessed positively in more than 50 publications, that it was a finalist for the African Studies Association's Herskovits Prize for the best book of 1985, that it won the Anisfield-Wolf Award for the best nonfiction book on race relations that year (previous winners included Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.), and that the black poet Gwendolyn Brooks told the Washington Post it was her favorite book of the year.
I just want to set the record straight for potential readers. James North (Dan Swanson)
