"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

2 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"It was in these uncertain times that this compelling collection of articles by leading African Americans was published to address what was then commonly known as "the Negro problem." The collection begins with a piece by Booker T. Washington on the value and purpose of stressing industrial education for Black Americans. This is followed by the now famous article by W. E. B. DuBois called "The Talented Tenth" in which he argues for the cultivation of an elite corps of Black intellectuals who would then work to uplift the African American masses. Other contributors discuss the disenfranchisement of Blacks, the broader subject of the people of color, and outstanding representative Black Americans."--BOOK JACKET
