“Black Maverick” in The Wall Street Journal

The August 7, 2009, edition of the The Wall Street Journal includes a feature review of Black Maverick: T. R. M. Howard’s Fight for Civil Rights and Economic Power.

Howard drove Cadillacs and Buicks, wore fancy clothes, and loved guns and big-game hunting. He praised free ­enterprise with a Booker T. Washington fervor, believing entrepreneurs to be better agents of change than ­activists. He once sighed for “one bomb that could be ­fashioned that would blow every Communist in America right back to Russia where they belong.” A flamboyant Second Amendment, ­anti-communist capitalist doesn’t please journalists and historians searching for civil-rights martyrs.
