Overview

One of America's prominent historians and a noted feminist bring together the most important political writings and testimonials from African Americans over three centuries. This unique volume captures the struggle and hope persistent in the movement for social justice. The voices of famous activists like Du Bois, Douglass, and Malcolm X, joined by those of laborers, women, and other African American citizens, reveal how the historical record of oppression and resistance coalesced into a national and international movement.

Editorial Reviews

Gerald Horne
This anthology packs in one volume the sterling essence of our vast intellectual and political heritage. This is a wonderful teaching tool; more than this, it is a book that none who purport to understand this nation can afford to ignore.
Herbert Aptheker
Conveys the essence of the struggle to achieve freedom by African-American men and women. The work is as dramatic as is the struggle itself.
Howard Winant
From early slave narratives to Malcolm X to the Black Radical Congress of 1998, this anthology presents essential viewpoints and insights from the black freedom struggle. Highly recommended!
The Journal of Southern History
A useful compendium.
Political Affairs
The history recounted in this book is important.
The Boston Globe
The couple encompass both the extraordinary and the every day.
— Robin Dougherty
Phatitude Literary Magazine
As I read this book, it was a pleasant journey reading Nat Turner's 1831 statement, 'Harlem Renaissance manifesto' of Langston Hughes, to Mumia Abu-Jamal's 'A Voice from Death Row,' and Barack Obama's 'A More Perfect Union' speech of 2008, which I found informative. The selections and critical historical references allow readers to view African American history through the lens of people who helped create it. Let Nobody Turn Us Around is evidence of how important it is for African Americans to document their experiences so that we can read, reflect and learn more about ourselves.
San Francisco Chronicle
While well-known voices such as Frederick Douglass and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. appear, it is the discovery of the lesser-known that makes this anthology special. For example, Jo Ann Robinson's account of organizing the 1955 Montgomery bus boycott presents concrete background on a mythic struggle. Narratives by Solomon Northrup describing the heartrending breakup of families during a slave auction (1841) and Naomi Ward's recounting of her experiences in 'I Am a Domestic' (1940) are very affecting.
Michigan Citizen
What is unique, startling, and most significant about this book is that all the sources are primary, and all are the voices of African Americans themselves articulating their experiences in an effort to understand and cope with their circumstances in this country over several centuries and how to change them. This rich, highly readable collection illuminates a broad spectrum of ideology, as well as how both continuity and change have affected the black community in the United States. . . . An impressive combination of serious scholarship with accessible writing, this is a book that none who purport to understand this nation can afford to ignore.
Emerge
Let Nobody Turn Us Around is 'not a typical encyclopedia of African-American thought.'. . . The voices behind the 20th century's most influential Black political and social movements ring loud and clear in expressing both past and future struggle . . . an eclectic range of material.
Huntsville Times
It's an ambitious compilation of some of the most important literature chronicling the African-American experience.
The North Carolina Historical Review
This book is a significant achievement. Its scope, organization, and bibliography make it an ideal resource for scholars, for graduate and undergraduate students in courses on American or African American history or studies, and for anyone else interested in American intellectual or social history.
The Journal Of Southern History
A useful compendium.
North Carolina Historical Review
This book is a significant achievement. Its scope, organization, and bibliography make it an ideal resource for scholars, for graduate and undergraduate students in courses on American or African American history or studies, and for anyone else interested in American intellectual or social history.
The Boston Globe - Robin Dougherty
The couple encompass both the extraordinary and the every day.
'ssie Davis
Let Nobody Turn Us Around puts a sword and compass back in faltering hands. . . . An indispensable, never-failing guide without which the bravest stumble and lose heart.
Julie Lewis
This is a fantastic book and wonderful resource for students and instructors. Well done!
Www.Bookviews.Com
Praise for the first edition:
It is an excellent work of scholarship and a reference that belongs in the homes of all Black Americans.
Race Relations Abstracts
Praise for the first edition:
The editors make the crucial argument that the themes of reform, resistance, and renewal formed the cultural and social matrix of black consciousness, community, and public discourse. They identify the key debates in the black community throughout American history and provide an analytical framework of the major tendencies. They also make a forceful argument for making the issue of gender a central one throughout this important volume.
Boston Globe

It is an excellent work of scholarship and a reference that belongs in the homes of all Black Americans.
Orlando Times
Praise for the first edition:
This unique and groundbreaking volume captures the struggle and hope persistent in the movement for social justice.
The Bookwatch
Praise for the first edition:
Douglas and Malcolm X are joined by lesser-known names in this survey of how individual actions formed into a movement. Oral testimonies, interviews, and essays blend in an important coverage.
Afro Times
Praise for the first edition:
A readable, comprehensive, fascinating and thick anthology of African American documents that are as gripping as they are informative. Powerful, dramatic, hard to put down, this comprehensive volume of both significant leaders and ordinary people with highly perceptive views, should find a place in many college courses.
Journal Of Southern History
A useful compendium.
Www.Bookviews.com
It is an excellent work of scholarship and a reference that belongs in the homes of all Black Americans.
Johnnetta B. Cole
Praise for the first edition:
No other anthology so fully incorporates views from African American women as well as men, workers as well as intellectuals, and individuals from diverse political perspectives.
Ossie Davis
Let Nobody Turn Us Around puts a sword and compass back in faltering hands. . . . An indispensable, never-failing guide without which the bravest stumble and lose heart.
Henry Louis Gates Jr.
Praise for the first edition:
A remarkably broad compilation of the signal primary sources through which black people articulated both their always shifting and always various definitions of what, precisely, a black identity is, as well as the most efficacious methods through which to achieve our freedom. Marable and Mullings have produced a work indispensable to the field of African-American Studies.
George M. Fredrickson
Praise for the first edition:
There is no comparable volume that can match the comprehensive coverage in this first, single-volume documentary history of black thought. . . . Essential reading.
Cornel West
Praise for the first edition:
Manning Marable and Leith Mullings's text gives us a powerful interpretation and compilation of exemplary voices in the black past and present. Their progressive vision is a breath of fresh air and badly needed in these times.
