The Modern African American Political Thought Reader is an important and timely resource for the study of African American History and Culture.

Peniel E. Joseph, author of Dark Days, Bright Nights: From Black Power to Barack Obama

Cutting through the 'noise' of a new class of mainstream media pundits, The Modern African American Political Thought Reader provides a great social and intellectual service by connecting an illustrious past and present of African American thought production. The discourse, and the actions this discourse inspires, is an invaluable contribution to a much-needed delineation of the nuances within black historical and contemporary political thought. Most importantly, The Modern African American Political Thought Reader necessarily troubles our conception of "the" black community as a singular, unified entity. Instead, Jones' volume reveals the plurality and collisions of intellectual debate that are crucial to shaping a vital vision of African Americans with a linked destiny, but disparate strategies for achieving social justice.

Kimberly Springer, author of Living for the Revolution: Black Feminist Organizations, 1968-1980
