KIRKUS REVIEW

The history of the Negro since the Civil War is one of recurrent setbacks,-economically, socially, politically; of difficulty in gaining their rights as free men. Crammed with little known data, this delineates many Negroes who have stamped their personalities on the face of America. Some, who made the most of themselves, did the greatest harm to their race in setting the stereotype. Then there were others -- those dedicated leaders whose lives and deeds inched forward the lot of their race.
