The prolific author of some of Black American’s most readable books, has selected fifteen dramatic episodes in black history, which he feels have provided turning points in the shaping of the two Americas, the black and the white. According to Bennett, “In history, as in art, there is a dialectical connection between the inner detail and the whole, neither of which can be understood or explained without reference to the other.” In this volume the reader will feel the complete meaning of the black tradition as summed up in the spiritual, Wade in the Water.
