GORGEOUS writing, much of which was brilliant.

This is a very interestingly written book - at times passionate, indignant, wise, lyrical, and knowledgeable. Each of the constituent chapters usually has a theme: employment, education, kinship structures, religion, but they are not too narrowly focused: it hangs together as a book by painting a gradually more thorough image of African Americans a little over a century ago. Altogether edifying, and enjoyable too.

It is a seminal work in the history of sociology, and a cornerstone of African-American literary history.
