"Mr. Ottley won deserved fame some years ago with "New World A-Coming and has again proved ability in he story of the Negro championing the Chicago Defender and its astonishing publisher.  He introduces a most admirable and likable personage in the publisher, as well as presenting a thorough and valuable survey of turbulent American racial friction and the steady but agonizingly slow process of a minority." --Springfield Republican, July 3, 1955

"Ottley has succeeded in humanizing the erstwhile choir-singing Georgia-boy-turned millionaire, and it is well worth reading." --New York Herald Tribune, June 15, 1955
