This chapter discusses the essays presented in this book. These generally deal with the struggle for black equality but, written between 1969 and 2008 for different venues and purposes, they do not present a single coherent interpretation. It looks at the author's education, his role in the civil rights movement, and his essays that emphasized what brought blacks and whites together.

Keywords: black equality; education; civil rights movement
