About "extraordinary 'ordinary' people; a Black America gifted with double-consciousness, a knowing nation within a largely unknowing nation. This book sings and rages with a feeling tone, powerful, eloquent, and, I hope, disturbing. Paradoxically, it is an exhilarating testament of a people who, in some manner incomprehensible to whites, have survived. Reading it is an experience." --Studs Terkel. Small closed tear on front edge of DJ and a corresponding small bump on front board of book. Scuff and a yellow dot at heel of DJ spine. The Date this book was read written on ffep. Laid in at page 50 is a newspaper article from the Houston Post, January 14, 1985, about black actors in the movies. Part of a large estate of an avid reader and collector of books who obviously read every one of them, the clue being that they all have some amount of marginalia and underlining and the date read on the flypage. ; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 287 pages; 30225
