Reviews

"Wilder knows a great deal about his subject and does not flinch from facing it head-on . . . There is much to admire in Ebony & Ivy and much to learn from it." --The Washington Post

"A groundbreaking history that will no doubt contribute to a reappraisal of some deep-rooted founding myths." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"A well-researched and revealing look at the connection between American academia and American slavery." --Booklist, starred review

"Wilder's copiously documented argument exposes how deeply implicated American higher education has been in racial exploitation that has dispossessed and subjugated peoples of color so as to invest whites beyond measure. His is a study deserving of serious attention from anyone interested in America's history, institutions, or intellectual development." --Library Journal
