This book is, not only overpriced, but lacks the concrete standing and backbone the title mistakenly claims. Marcus D. Pohlmann delves into a world he is ill-prepared to unravel. Placing notable and popular Black minds into one kettle, stirring it and neatly lining them up in alphabetical order is no guarantee you will earn brownie points in the African community. This is something most whites who attempt to write on the status of African american political thought fall short; and Mr. Pohlmann has fallen and can't get up.
