Editorial Reviews

Review

Excellently researched and sourced.--Michigan Historical Review



As a concise look at twentieth-century black activism through the lens of one composition, the book works exceedingly well. . . . Perry's book is a timely reminder of histories forgotten and voices unremembered.--Journal of American History



Perry has masterfully researched and written an accessible and captivating cultural history of a transformative and uplifting song adorned with lyrics that have encouraged black people while mirroring their evolution over the past hundred years.--Journal of African American History



Imani Perry has done a great service to the field of African American history in tracking this often-cited song through hundreds of black organizations, plays, and works of literature during the twentieth century. In the process, she has made clear that, at least during the age of segregation, a black nation was made in part through singing 'Lift Every Voice and Sing.'--Journal of Southern History



Perry provides exegesis and exhortation in explaining how a song captured a culture, and in turn became a cultural captive held fast by emotional ties of a diverse people; hers is a work for adolescents and academics, indeed for any readers interested in at least glimpsing a sense of a pulsing, resilient black consciousness. Highly recommended.--Library Journal, starred review



Through extensive research and eloquent writing, Perry. . . expertly sifts through the layers of black civic, social and cultural history that are inextricably linked to 'Lift Every Voice and Sing.'--San Francisco Chronicle



May We Forever Stand is meticulously researched and innovative in its engagement of aspects of Black culture once seen as too disparate to interrogate in one setting. A signpost for future directions in historical studies of Black life, Perry provides a valuable methodological framework for historicizing the imagination.--Journal of North Carolina Association of Historians

Review

In Imani Perry's hands, the biography of 'Lift Every Voice and Sing' becomes the history of African Americans over the span of more than one hundred years--a brilliant and wonderfully executed book.--Heather A. Williams, author of American Slavery
