"This book examines the life and career of Robert R. Church Jr. who grew up the son of the first black millionaire in Memphis, Tennessee, and would eventually surpass his father's notoriety as the most influential black Republican of his era. In particular this book uses Church's life as a lens into the political activity of African Americans during the first half of the twentieth century"-- Provided by publisher
