Black Thought and Culture


Summary

This collection of non-fiction writings by major American black leaders—teachers, artists, politicians, religious leaders, athletes, war veterans, entertainers, and other figures—covers 250 years of history. In addition to the most familiar works, this resource includes a significant amount of previously inaccessible material, including letters, speeches, essays, political leaflets, interviews, periodicals, oral histories, and trial transcripts. The ideas of over 1,000 authors present an evolving and complex view of what it is to be black in America.
