Reviews

"Understanding African American Rhetoric is the most comprehensive, scholarly, methodologically sound presentation of African American rhetoric to date! Given the many leading intellectuals who wrote chapters, this book is essential reading for both scholars and practitioners. It is likely to become a canonical text." -- Jack L. Daniel, co-author, with Omari C. Daniel, of We Fish: The Journey to Fatherhood
