"Like his literary forebears - Frederick Douglass, James Baldwin, Ralph Ellison, and yes, Mark Twain - Ralph Wiley has some information to purvey. The news is not always good. But with Wiley's electrifying take on subjects from the black intelligentsia to The Bell Curve to O.J., Dark Witness is certain to outrage, entertain, and ultimately enlighten. Wiley, heir to the long tradition of writer as activist, examines some of the most hotly debated issues of black life today and turns them inside out."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
