Abstract:

"Thomas Dyja's fascinating and compelling biography of Walter White takes us into the personal and political world of this fair-skinned, blond and blue-eyed, brash and impulsive, stylish and complex man. His story is about one of the few individuals in American history who devoted himself completely to the concept of a color-blind nation, yet lost the delicate balance between ambition and advocacy that had been his trademark." "In restoring Walter White to his place in the story of the African-American struggle, Thomas Dyja fills the void between Booker T. Washington and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He also confronts some of the thorniest issues between blacks and whites in America."--BOOK JACKET.
