Summary
"If We Must Die is a narrative and compilation of commentaries by African American leaders, intellectuals, and average citizens on wars fought by the United States. The book uses the rich material of political and social commentary as it seeks to articulate the concerns, mood, and memory of African Americans in the context of global political realities." "Organized chronologically, by America's major wars, If We Must Die offers an impressively wide array of viewpoints from such diverse figures as Molly Pitcher, Phyllis Wheatley, Frederick Douglass, Booker T. Washington, Ida B. Wells, Paul Robeson, Thurgood Marshall, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, and more." "Each section begins with an introduction that describes the war, its causes, the African American condition during the war, and the context for the African American response. The commentaries included in this book are based on their significance to each war, the era, and which best represented a particular point of view."--Jacket
