This is an outstanding reappraisal of activist professor Kerlin's historically relevant and vital, but often overlooked work, The Voice of the Negro. It presents African American journalists' on-the-scene portrayals and analyses of the racial violence and their reports from the frontlines of the bloodshed in the wake of Red Summer. The Voice of the Negro, originally published in 1920, was situated at the intersection of three distinct paths in African American history. In its role as witness to the Red Summer of 1919, it manned the barricades of racial violence. As a popular projection of the black press, it both represented and predicated the influence such publications would have through the 1920s and the rest of the century. And as the project of activist professor Robert T. Kerlin, it marked the final confluence of racial radicalism and scholarship from which he would never return, providing a blueprint for generations of academics and the discipline of African American Studies. Thus The Voice of the Negro was both a clarion call and representation of what was to come.
