"Tate's data are extensive, interesting, and informative, and provide for a compelling story of how blacks think about politics, yesterday and today...Tate's work should become seminal reading for those interested in public opinion, and race and politics."―Political Science Quarterly
"An intriguing work drawing together more than thirty years of public opinion data from a variety of sourcesprovides an engaging discussion of trends in Black public opinion over the past few decades and a promising conceptual framework for future research in this area."―National Political Science Review
"What's Going On? is a provocative and informative examination of African American public opinion. Scholars of Black politics will consult and debate this important work for many years to come. "―Vincent Hutchings, Institute for Social Research, The University of Michigan
"Katherine Tate's new empirical work on African American public opinion moves the field into a wholly new direction. Instead of analyzing the diverse ideologies within this public opinion, this bold and novel pioneering work assesses and evaluates the dynamism in this opinion between 1970 to 2004 with insights from 2008. Tate makes a startling argument and finding: African American public opinion has moved from its left/liberal mooring to now a moderate/centrist position but is currently poised so as to be shifted back given the outcome of the Obama Administration. Her thesis is that African American political incorporation has moderated the radical nature of African American public opinion. This book is a fascinating read. It is also a brilliant and original work. "―Hanes Walton Jr., The University of Michigan
