KIRKUS REVIEW

A fine, fair, and probing biography, assiduously researched, of ""the father of black nationalism""; uncommonly faithful to both the world as it was and the world as he saw it from before emancipation to after reconstruction. It's not easy going all the way but it will be invaluable precisely because it goes all the way. . . toward marshalling the forces behind the making of the man.
