Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Black Man

The sheer fullness of human experience communicated so reverently in Wallace Stevens’ poem, “13 Ways of Looking at a Blackbird” finds another voicing in this collection of profiles by Henry Louis Gates. While his subjects include James Baldwin, Harry Belafonte, Bill T. Jones, Colin Powell, Louis Farrakhan, Albert Murray, and Anatole Broyard, his essays range more widely still, touching upon the conflicts and struggles of being black and male in America.
