Drawing on a wealth of oral interviews collected by activist and politician Julian Bond and historian Phyllis Leffler, Black Leaders on Leadership uses the lives of prominent African Americans from all sectors of society to trace the contours of Black leadership in America. Included here are fascinating accounts from a wide variety of figures such as John Lewis, Clarence Thomas, Eleanor Holmes Norton, Vernon Jordan, Angela Davis, Amiri Baraka, and many more. Stories of identity are foregrounded here – stories about the self, about group and community, about value and meaning. These individual and collective memories form a genealogy of social and cultural identity, demonstrating how leadership emerges from historical struggle rooted in the promise of a brighter future, and providing valuable insights into the intractable disparities of race in America.

A website -http://www.blackleadership.virginia.edu – hosts the complete interviews, is fully searchable by topic, and allows the voices and the faces of those interviewed to come alive on the pages of the book through the use of QR codes. Educators will also find seven leadership lessons for use in classrooms on the website and a full glossary of terms in both printed and electronic formats.
