Summary

Summary

"A creative and refreshing approach ... Although Oglesby is not the first to write on black self-esteem, no comparable text has been written, especially in its emphasis on ethical themes such as self-determination, moral agency, and moral responsibility. This is a masterful stroke." --Rufus Burrow, Jr.
