The Truth of American Society

Quote from Lerone Bennett's book The Challenge of Blackness.
Quote from Lerone Bennett’s book The Challenge of Blackness.

If Black people are not what White people said we were, then white America is not what it claims to be. What we have to deal with here therefore is a contradiction at the level of reality. We are engaged in a struggle over meaning, a struggle over truth. And it is my argument here that Blacks and not Whites embody the common interest and the truth of American society.

From the “Challenge of Blackness” by Lerone Bennett
