Review

Praise for the first edition: No other anthology so fully incorporates views from African American women as well as men, workers as well as intellectuals, and individuals from diverse political perspectives..... -- Johnnetta B. Cole, president emerita of Spelman and Bennett Colleges

Praise for the first edition: A remarkably broad compilation of the signal primary sources through which black people articulated both their always shifting and always various definitions of what, precisely, a black identity is, as well as the most efficacious methods through which to achieve our freedom. Marable and Mullings have produced a work indispensable to the field of African-American Studies.... -- Henry Louis Gates Jr., Harvard University

Praise for the first edition: Manning Marable and Leith Mullings's text gives us a powerful interpretation and compilation of exemplary voices in the black past and present. Their progressive vision is a breath of fresh air and badly needed in these times.... -- Cornel West, Union Theological Seminary

Praise for the first edition: A readable, comprehensive, fascinating and thick anthology of African American documents that are as gripping as they are informative. Powerful, dramatic, hard to put down, this comprehensive volume of both significant leaders and ordinary people with highly perceptive views, should find a place in many college courses....,
Afro Times

Praise for the first edition: There is no comparable volume that can match the comprehensive coverage in this first, single-volume documentary history of black thought. . . . Essential reading..... -- George M. Fredrickson, Stanford University

Afro Times

Praise for the first edition:The editors make the crucial argument that the themes of reform, resistance, and renewal formed the cultural and social matrix of black consciousness, community, and public discourse. They identify the key debates in the black community throughout American history and provide an analytical framework of the major tendencies. They also make a forceful argument for making the issue of gender a central one throughout this important volume.,
Race Relations Abstracts

Praise for the first edition:It is an excellent work of scholarship and a reference that belongs in the homes of all Black Americans.,
Www.Bookviews.Com

Praise for the first edition:Douglas and Malcolm X are joined by lesser-known names in this survey of how individual actions formed into a movement. Oral testimonies, interviews, and essays blend in an important coverage.,
The Bookwatch

Praise for the first edition:This unique and groundbreaking volume captures the struggle and hope persistent in the movement for social justice.,
Orlando Times

Praise for the first edition: An essential reference: instructive, evocative, surprising, enraging, painful, depressing―but ultimately exhilarating.,
Kirkus

This is a fantastic book and wonderful resource for students and instructors. Well done! -- Julie Lewis, De Anza College
--This text refers to the hardcover edition.
