about this book

In the tradition of James Baldwin’s Notes of a Native Son, Robeson’s A Black Way of Seeing melds history and analysis in a sweeping panorama of the present moment as we know it to be–scathing in its understanding of why Black empowerment has failed and prescient in its articulation of what it will take for Black Americans to be agents of change for the country as a whole.

“Robeson clearly despairs for America. A Black Way of Seeing is an enraging and provocative prescriptive from the emerging black discourse on the future of America, its ideals and its possibilities, both bleak and bright.” — Max Rodriguez, publisher of QBR: The Black Book Review

“Paul Robeson, Jr. stands tall in the grand tradition of his legendary father. Listen closely to his bold words!” — Cornel West, Princeton University
