Black Leadership in America
by John White
An attempt to incorporate more recent scholarship on this topic, while retaining an emphasis on the historical context in which successive black leaders functioned. The roles of women in black protest movements are discussed as are major civil rights organizations.
'The end-product is an excellent critical examination of these important figures, combined with a useful general survey of modern black American history.'
