With this book and his "Martin Delany, Frederick Douglass, and the Politics of Representative Identity," Levine has brought to the larger world a better understanding of a neglected nineteenth century activist, often misrepresented, though almost as often celebrated for particular rather than general contributors to African American and American history and literature. Proud of his blackness and working without white assistance or guidance as far as he could, Delany had a hard row to hoe, but worked for his people and self from Chicago to Canada to Nigeria to London to South Carolina as newspaperman,lecturer, doctor, fictioneer, African explorer, Civil War recruiter, US Army Major, and Reconstruction officer.
