Explorations in Sights and Sounds
This book, whose author is an associate professor at the University of Arkansas, is an important contribution to Afro-American and diplomatic history. Its subject was, as the author notes, a "second echelon member of the national Negro leadership" at the turn of the nineteenth century . Mature biographies of such figures are few but are vital if the contours of black history are to be filled.
