Summary note
There have been many answers on offer for liberalism's anemic approval ratings, but as this book shows, we may have been looking in the wrong places and using the wrong defenses for liberal democracy. Focusing on the long history of black political participation and protest, this book contends that it offers object lessons for liberalism.
