A Terrible Thing to Waste

 

"Arthur Allen Fletcher was the most important civil rights leader you've (probably) never heard of. Although this Kansan's name appears in books on affirmative action, the United Negro College Fund, and in the recent and growing scholarship on Black Republicans, the story of the man who coined the phrase "A Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Waste" has been left out of standard treatments on the civil rights era.

Beschrijving A Terrible Thing to Waste

Arthur Fletcher (1924-2005) was the most important civil rights leader you've (probably) never heard of. Fletcher's story, told in full for the first time in this book, embodies the conundrum of the post-World War II black Republican - the civil rights leader who remained loyal to the party even as it abandoned the principles he espoused.
