Lerone Bennett Jr. was born in Clarksdale, Miss. in 1928. He published many critical texts in consideration of the African American experience in America and abroad, later becoming editor of JET and Ebony magazines. His first and perhaps most notable book, Before the Mayflower, details the history of Black America from the very beginning. This is his story.
