The "color line" defined American society in the twentieth century. Will the same be true for the twenty-first? Leading African-American scholars and activists discuss the state of Black America today and the prospects for achieving full civil rights and equality. This broad, inclusive anthology--including essays on hip-hop, feminism, prison reform, and reparations--makes a vital contribution to our understanding of racism and how it can be overcome.

Contributors include Angela Davis, Robert Allen, Julianne Malveaux, Ron Daniels, Amiri Baraka, Barbara Smith, William Sales, Kathleen Cleaver, Don Rojas, Bill Fletcher, Kevin Powell, Robert Allen and Alice Tait.
