Product description

Review

President Barack Obama
“Everybody who speaks after Michael Eric Dyson pales in comparison. He is an outstanding scholar and an outstanding author.”

Vanity Fair
“One of the most graceful and lucid intellectuals writing on race and politics today.”

Jay Z
“Michael Eric Dyson . . . is a world-class scholar and the most brilliant interpreter of hip hop culture we have.”

Steven Nadler, Professor of Philosophy, University of Wisconsin
“If any one person is continuing W. E. B. Du Bois’s idea of the engaged public intellectual on African-American issues, it’s Michael Eric Dyson.”

Naomi Wolff
“The ideal public intellectual for our time: translator, boundary-breaker, and healer of a war torn culture."

The Boston Phoenix
“The preeminent black intellectual.”

Lawrence Bobo, the W. E. B. Du Bois Professor of the Social Sciences at Harvard University
“Few have carried on the legacy of Du Bois’s public intellectualism as well, or with as much verve . . . as Professor Michael Eric Dyson.”

The Philadelphia Weekly
“Michael Eric Dyson is reshaping what it means to be a public intellectual by becoming the most visible black academic of his time.”

Washington Post
“Such is the genius of Dyson. He flows freely from the profound to the profane, from popular culture to classical literature.”
