Price’s memoir recounts his distinguished achievements as an activist, journalist, and educator, and traces key episodes of American history through the lives of his ancestors, including one who fought under Washington and another who was a fugitive slave and drew support from Frederick Douglass. Price himself started his career in New Haven and served as the first executive director of the city’s Black Coalition. In 1978 he joined the editorial board of The New York Times. Ten years later, he was appointed vice-president of the Rockefeller Foundation, and from 1994 to 2003 he served as president of the National Urban League, before moving on to Brookings and then to the faculty of the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton.
