Product Information

Originally published in 1917, Rogers' From Superman to Man (2nd Edition) is a classic work of fiction from the Harlem Renaissance.

The book is a polemic against the ignorance that fuels racism. The central plot revolves around a debate between a Pullman porter and a white racist Southern politician. Rogers used this debate to air many of his personal philosophies and to debunk stereotypes about black people and white racial superiority. The porter's arguments and theories are pulled from a plethora of sources, classical and contemporary, and run the gamut from history and anthropology to biology. Many of the ideas that permeated Rogers' later work can be seen germinating in From Superman to Man. He addresses issues such as the lack of scientific support for the idea of race, the lack of black history being told from a black person's perspective, and the fact of intermarriage and unions among peoples throughout history.

From Superman to Man is arguably the greatest book ever written on the topic of race and racism, and it should be a must read for every young American and anyone looking for the truth about race and racism. Extraordinary and timeless!
