Abstract:

Where are we as people, at the dawn of the twenty-first century? [The author] pursued answers by conducting interviews with famous and not-so-famous African Americans. It has long struck [the author] as curious chat African Americans often speak differently - more colorfully and openly - when talking with each other behind closed doors than they do in interracial settings. [He] wanted to provide a window through that veil that still, far too often, separates black America from white. [He] wanted these dialogues to give a rare glimpse of black people reflecting to themselves on the challenges and ironies of their lives some thirty-five years following the death of the last great civil rights leader, Martin Luther King, Jr.-Back cover.
