Summary
"Born enslaved in Jackson County, Florida, in 1856, T. Thomas Fortune would face in his lifetime what many argue to be the central influences on the political, social, and legal status of Africans in America. For nearly five decades, from 1880 to 1928, his was one of the most powerful voices in the press. Fortune edited, published, or wrote for most of the key organs of opinion that also served as vehicles for activism, reform, and information." "Today's histories often pass over his writings, in part because they have rarely been reprinted. This anthology, edited by Shawn Leigh Alexander, will go a long way toward demonstrating the breadth of Fortune's contribution to black political thought at a key period in American history."--BOOK JACKET
