“Warren’s book remains a luminous volume about race, racism, the South, black The us, and our national destiny. We ignore or omit his work at our peril.”—Arnold Rampersad, Stanford University
“Not exactly a stroll down memory lane and under no circumstances a song to sing, yet Who Speaks for the Negro? brings back a question one would have thought already answered. We still search The us’s soul for how to and who to include. This is still a book worthy of your time and someway still part of ours.”—Nikki Giovanni
“Fifty years later, we have this archival treasure that demonstrates why the Civil Rights Movement in reality gave our land its second equality, life, and liberty movement.”—Reverend James M. Lawson, Jr.
