African American Political Thought, 1890-1930: Washington, Du Bois, Garvey, and Randolph

“Essays, letters, speeches and editorials produced by Washington, DuBois, Garvey and Randolph form the foundation of a fine examination of the ideas and evolution of African American political and social thinking from the 1890s through the 1920s. An excellent overview of black concerns and evolution is created through the juxtaposition of documents by the four prominent thinkers.”
--Midwest Book Review
