This book is about race relations that tell the stories of successful African Americans as they negotiate through the turbulence of everyday life. The author conducted a national interview with over two hundred middle class African American respondents. The experiences of these middle class African Americans suggest the need for:

-an Afrocentric perspective of the Black experience
-a reconstruction of assimilation and marginality theories to more adequately account for the experiences of African Americans
-a theory of oppositional culture that demonstrates how African Americans are resisting and changing the traditional ways of thinking about Black/White relations.
