Wright provides this number of six essays on points of black historical past. every one essay relies upon a severe historic technique that's made out of, between different issues, a racial research, an intersectional research, rigorous good judgment, conceptual integrity, and a severe research of rules, phrases, and photographs. serious of the romantic method of the topic, Wright seeks to discover a deeper research, wisdom, and fact concerning facets of black historical past, even if it contains the presentation of fabric and viewpoints that a few may perhaps locate objectionable. He predicates those items at the concept that heritage remains to be a necessary topic, firmly rejecting the postmodern view that it has misplaced its validity.

Wright demonstrates that black heritage is an important and worthwhile topic, not just for black humans, yet for all american citizens. A severe black background is itself, Wright contends, a tool to guage American heritage in a severe demeanour, to get into the topic extra deeply, and to adduce deeper wisdom and truths approximately it. those essays express the author's curiosity in strengthening that serious skill of black ancient writing and his trust that this can be a fundamental and worthy skill to keep up the viability and productiveness of the tutorial self-discipline and to beat back its detractors.
