From the Publisher"This biography sheds welcome light on the man who sat to the left of Martin Luther King at the 1963 March on Washington. Blakely's straightforward biography makes a meaningful contribution to African-American and Chicago history." —Publishers Weekly
"[A] portrait of its subject so full and affecting that it makes Earl B. Dickerson rise from the page and extend his hand to make your acquaintance." —Chicago Sun-Times
"Earl Dickerson is a household word at the University of Chicago Law School, where he was the first African American graduate and a standout as a student and an alumnus. Robert Blakely's book now shows a wider audience why Earl Dickerson's name is synonymous with courage, farsightedness, civil rights, and progressive pragmatism."
—Saul Levmore, Dean and William B. Graham Professor of Law, University of Chicago Law School
