Representing the Race: The Creation of the Civil Rights Lawyer
Representing the Race tells the story of African American lawyers who, during the era of segregation, confronted a tension between their racial and professional identities. Their untold stories pose the unsettling question: What, ultimately, does it mean to “represent” a minority group in the give-and-take of American law and politics?
Representing the Race is a wonderful excavation of the first era of civil rights lawyering, the product of prodigious research and a keen eye for revealing detail.
-Randall L. Kennedy, author of The Persistence of the Color Line: Racial Politics and the Obama Presidency
