Wells, W. E. B. DuBois, and Martin Luther King, Jr., Ray shows the foundations of critical race theory in Black intellectual traditions of emancipation and the civil rights movement. He explains the centrality of race in American history and politics, and how an often mischaracterized intellectual movement became a necessity. Random House. 2022. Hb, DJ. List price $26.00.
