The Loss Of A Feminist

March 10, 1991

Ishmael Reed's review of William S. McFeeley's new biography of Frederick Douglass raised some interesting questions about black leadership in the 19th Century.

Reed errs though in suggesting that Marcus Garvey was the "father of black nationalism." The title "father of black nationalism" belongs to Martin R. Delany, a pre-Civil War emigrationist and explorer.
