Summary
As the early triumphs of the Civil Rights movement transformed into frustration and violence, Cruse (1916-2005) offered activists and intellectuals a new perspective on the relationship between American blacks and American society. His book reviews black intellectual life from the Harlem Renaissance through the 1960s, arguing that figures such as Paul Robeson, Lorraine Hansberry, and James Baldwin failed to understand the specifically American character of racism in the US. The 1967 edition was published by Morrow. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
