Historical studies of white racial thought focus exclusively on white ideas about the "Negroes". Bay's study is the first to examine the reverse - black ideas about whites, and, consequently, black understandings of race and racial categories. Bay examines African-American ideas about white racial character and destiny in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In examining black racial thought, this work also explores the extent to which black Americansaccepted or rejected 19th century notions about innate racial characteristics.

Publisher: Oxford University Press , How did blacks assess the status of the white race?
Mia Bay traces African-American perceptions of whites between and to depict America's shifting attitudes about race in a period that saw slavery, emancipation, Reconstruction, and urban migration. Much has been written about how the whites of this time viewed blacks, and about how blacks viewed themselves. By contrast, the ways in which blacks saw whites have remained a historical and intellectual mystery. In doing so, she uncovers and elucidates the racial thought of a wide range of nineteenth-century African-Americans--educated and unlettered, male and female, free and enslaved.
Bay explicitily addresses issues of methodology and sources in this carefully considered, thorough volume Throughout, she demonstrates that, with a keen eye, a historian may learn much about the opinions of the unlettered.
Mia Bay — CENTER FOR THE STUDY OF SOCIAL DIFFERENCE
A worthy successor to earlier work on racial ideology, this book fills a major gap in the scholarship. An excellent work that relates the roots of race-centered ideology to their past precedents. Mia Bay has done just this in this subtle and elegant study, a truly germinal contribution to American historiography.
Du Bois Institute for African American Research, Harvard University "By revealing for the first time what blacks thought about whites in the era of slavery and segregation, this incisive work adds a whole new dimension to our understanding of black-white relations in American history. It is deeply researched, astute in its interpretation, and very readable. Fredrickson, Stanford University "A meticulous and imaginative reconstruction of compelling chapters in African American cultural and intellectual history. Bay is equally at home in probing the responses of Black intellectuals to racist ethnology and in mining slave narratives for evidence of the complex views of white people developed by those for whom whiteness was most acutely experienced as a problem in everyday life.
