Abstract:

"In this major political biography of one of America's most important civil rights figures, Kenneth Robert Janken breaks important new ground in the history of the struggle for racial justice in the United States." "Deeply researched and richly documented, White's biography provides a revealing perspective on the leading political and cultural figures of his time - including W.E.B. Du Bois, Eleanor Roosevelt, and James Weldon Johnson - and an unrivalled glimpse into the contentious world of civil rights politics and activism in the pre-civil rights era."--Jacket.
