FROM THE PUBLISHER

"Nearly fifty years after his death, Albert Einstein remains one of America's foremost cultural icons. Among the ocean of Einsteinia - scientific monographs, biographies, anthologies, bibliographies, calendars, postcards, posters, and Hollywood films - there is a peculiar void when it comes to the connection that the brilliant scientist had with the African American community. Virtually nowhere is there any mention of his relationship with Paul Robeson, despite Einstein's close friendship with him, or W. E. B. Du Bois, despite Einstein's support for him." "This unique volume is the first to bring together a wealth of writings by the scientist on the topic of race. Although his activism in this area is less well known than his efforts on behalf of international peace and scientific cooperation, Einstein spoke out vigorously against racism both in the United States and around the world." Combining the scientist's letters, speeches, and articles with an engaging narrative that places his public statements in the context of his life and times, this important collection not only brings attention to Einstein's antiracist public activities, but also provides insight into the complexities of antiracist culture in America. The volume also features a selection of candid interviews with African Americans who knew Einstein as children.
