In "Black Reconstructionists," Emma Lou Thornbrough presents the black reconstructionists' own words, the views of their contemporaries, and analyses in retrospect by leading historians and political scientists to create a three-fold perspective. Until now, the truth about the black reconstructionists - the first black political leaders of our country - has been obscured by a history that has consistently neglected and maligned them by identifying them with the white carpetbaggers. In this new volume, Thornbrough lays to rest the myths and stereotypes that have endured for more than one hundred years.
