really liked it
bookshelves: currently-reading

Mack tries to answer an impossibly hard question here, I interpret it as basically how much can a professional integrate into the vocational fraternity without losing ethnic authenticity in the eyes of the less privileged members of the group from which he sprung. Not sure if theres is an answer, but the wealth of this book comes from the reclaimed history of these not well enough known black lawyers.
