Dispatches from the Ebony Tower brings together an impressive array of intellectuals to examine the African American experience. The result is a lively and insightful debate that provides us with a framework for dealing with the last remnants of colonialism. In this unusual collection, Manning Marable and his colleagues provide us with an invaluable education while simultaneously honoring the rich legacies of W. E. B. Du Bois, Carter G. Woodson, and Ida B. Wells-Barnett. This is not a book anyone who purports to be well-informed can afford to miss. -- George E. Curry, Editor-in-Chief, Emerge: Black America's Newsmagazine As black studies scholars and programs celebrate three decades of scholarship and teaching, Manning Marable gives us a book that documents their history and intellectual achievements. Dispatches from the Ebony Tower is a rich compendium of essays that explores the global implications of this work, the taxonomy of these programs, the defining debates, and the relationship that this field, to its credit, insists upon maintaining with American life. This book is, quite simply, one that should be read by anyone who claims or wants to be informed about critical issues facing contemporary society and what leading intellectuals have to say. -- Margaret B. Wilkerson, Ph.D., Program Officer, The Ford Foundation What an impressive gathering of minds! With political insight and intellectual acuity, Marable has assembled key reflections, investigations and debates on Afro-America--and in doing so has produced one of the most profound statements on the contemporary United States in print. Representing a broad range of ideologies and opinions, Dispatches from the Ebony Tower will force us all to re-think the relationship between social struggles, scholarship, pedagogy, as well as the fundamental role race plays in modern American life. -- Robin D. G. Kelley, author of Yo' Mama's DisFunktional!: Fighting the Culture Wars in Urban America.
