For Ishmael Reed, Barack Obama, like Michelangelo's St. Anthony, is a tormented man, haunted by modern reincarnations of the demonic spirits used to break slaves. These were the 'œNigger Breakers''”men like Edward Covey, who was handed the job of breaking Frederick Douglass. 'œIsn't it ironic,' writes Reed: 'œA media that scolded the Jim Crow South in the 1960s now finds itself hosting the bird.' In this collection, which includes several unpublished essays, Ishmael Reed brings to bear his grasp of the four-centuries-long African-American experience as he turns his penetrating gaze on Barack Obama's election and first year in power'”establishing himself as the conscience of a country that was once moved by Martin Luther King's dream.
