summary
This book shows how African American intellectuals—academicians, social critics, activists, and writers—became visible in the African American community and in America as a whole. Themes include how African American intellectuals sought to resolve racism; how they have been connected with (and disconnected from) their own communities; how they identify themselves in relation to the black masses, Americans in general, and the world stage;  how they envision America through popular culture; and how black conservatives have emerged and influenced national debates.
