...Harlem Stirs is a book about the long hot summer of the Sixties and the cold white winters of our terrible discontent. it is a story of the people in movement again on various and varied fronts...
...Harlem Stirs is not a story of a people hopelessly lost in a quagmire of despair and helplessness, but the story of the people fighting back against overwhelming odds, which makes it a very special kind of book...
...This book builds steadily toward the moment of truth in the summer of 1964, when the "police riot" erupted in Harlem and spilled over into the Borough of Brooklyn in the Bedford Stuyvesant community.
...The thing that I like about this book is that it has the courage to place the blame squarely and honestly where the blame belongs. let us state the question plainly.
