Noted journalist and professor David Dent spent five years crisscrossing America on a mission to expose prevalent myths and stereotypes. With tape recorder in hand, he stopped in Detroit; Washington, D.C.; Portsmouth, New Hampshire; Gallipolis, Ohio; Seattle; Hampton, Virginia; and many other places, documenting widespread diversity in the lives of the black majority -- middle- and upper-middle-class African Americans. Peopled with an eclectic and insightful array of personalities, enriched by the author's journalistic candor, this important and timely book is an invaluable addition to the ever-evolving debate about race in America.
