CHOICE Review

In the early 20th century, intellectual African Americans, many educated in elite universities, wrote of the ideas that gave identity to African Americans in emerging US national culture. They found academic positions, most often in historical black colleges and universities. The authors try to accomplish two goals. First, they seek the common threads of African American thinking in the 20th century. Second, they value the emergence of the social science disciplines and try to show how tightly bonded they were with African American thinking. To suit this model, they must sometimes define literary writers, such as Zora Neale Hurston and James Weldon Johnson, as social scientists. The 31 well-selected essays, ranging from 1898 to 1973, are an excellent introduction and guide to the world of the African American scholars who established their place in US academic and intellectual culture. The introductions provide contexts and bibliographies. Although lack of an index limits its accessibility, this strong, valuable collection documents the issues and barriers met by the "Talented Tenth," who often lived behind the "Veil," and who used their minds to explain how "the color line continues to be drawn in the lives of millions of Americans." Summing Up: Highly recommended. All levels/libraries. J. H. Smith Wake Forest University
