William Loren Katz Author of Eyewitness J.A. Rogers's anthropological and historical research and careful documentation sought to rescue his people from the humiliations of white scholarly mythology. Rogers's classic World's Great Men of Color has added vital pages to what has become known as Black Studies.
About the Author
J.A. Rogers was an anthropologist and historian whose pioneering work in Black Studies was little appreciated during his lifetime. Among his many books are Superman to Man and Sex and Race. World's Great Men of Color was completed in 1947 but was published only in a small private edition. This edition has been brought up to date with an introduction, commentaries, and bibliographical notes by John Henrik Clarke, editor of Malcolm X: The Man and His Times and Harlem, U.S.A.
