We weep for the true victim, the black American. His wounds are deep. But along with their scars, black people have a secret. Their genius is that they have survived. In the adaptations they have developed a vigorous style of life. It has touched religion, music, and the broad canvas of creativity. The psyche of black men has been disturbed. For white America to understand the life of the black man it must recognise that so much time has passed and so little has changed.

(from Grier and Rice M. Cokks, 'The Shadow of the Past' in The Writing Commitment)
