"The essays in this important collection . . . probe the breadth and depth of Randolph's social, economic, and political beliefs and leadership commitments during his path breaking —yet often contentious—career. . . . The collection not only reinterprets Randolph and reframes his place in history, thus complicating our understanding of Randolph in his time, but suggests ways his legacy speaks to struggles for economic and social justice in our time."
—Beth T. Bates, Wayne State University
"Reframing Randolph is a terrific examination of one of the twentieth century’s most important social and political figures. Along with a stellar list of contributors, Kersten and Lang provide an unmatched assessment of Randolph’s social and political activism and labor organizing that uncovers important new insights and exposes critical nuances of his thought and character."
—Cornelius L. Bynum, author of A. Philip Randolph and the Struggle for Civil Rights
“The volume succeeds admirably, building a series of partially overlapping portraits from different perspectives but also through lenses of varied focal length.”
—Journal of American History
