John Hope Franklin lived through Amer’s. most defining 20th-cent. transformation, the dismantling of legally protected racial segregation. Born in 1915, he, like every African Amer., was evicted from whites-only train cars, confined to segregated schools, threatened, & consistently subjected to racism’s denigration of his humanity. Yet he managed to receive a Ph.D. from Harvard & become the first black historian to assume a full professorship at a white institution. He has reshaped the way African Amer. history is understood & taught. He also influenced the nation’s racial conscience by aiding Thurgood Marshall’s preparation for arguing “Brown v. Board of Educ.,” This vol. chronicles his life & Amer’s. racial transformation in the 20th cent.
