Summary
  • "The milestones for blacks in twentieth-century America - the Harlem Renaissance, the struggle for equal education, and the civil rights movement - would have been inconceivable without the contributions of one important but often overlooked figure, Charles S. Johnson (1893-1956). This biography demonstrates the scope of his achievements, situates him among other black intellectuals of his time, and casts new light on a pivotal era in the struggle for black equality in America."
  • "An impresario of Harlem Renaissance culture, an eminent Chicago-trained sociologist, a pioneering race relations leader, and an educator of the generation that freed itself from legalized segregation, Johnson was a visionary who linked the everyday struggles of blacks with the larger intellectual and political currents of the day. His distinguished career included twenty-eight years as Fisk University, where he established the famed Race Relations Institute and became Fisk's first black president."--Jacket
