With this book and his "Martin Delany, Frederick Douglass, and the Politics of Representative Identity," Levine has brought to the larger world a better understanding of a neglected nineteenth century activist, often misrepresented, though almost as often celebrated for particular rather than general contributors to African American and American history and literature.
