Summary note
"In 1968 Cole traveled to Chicago, Cleveland, Memphis, Atlanta, and Los Angeles, as well as rural areas of the South, capturing the mood of different Black communities in the months leading up to and just after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. This rediscovered work provides a window into American society and redefines Cole's oeuvre, presenting a fuller picture of the life and work of a man who fled South Africa and exposed life under apartheid to the world"-- Provided by publisher.
