President Harry S Truman's contribution to civil rights is generally viewed as substantial and important.

But some historians are inclined to regard his achievement as meagre, hesitantly undertaken, polluted by political motives, and inadequate.

The essays in this volume include the perspectives of historians and political scientists, of a member of Truman's White House staff, and of descendants of slaves - including General Colin Powell, Congressman John Lewis, and former Congresswoman Carrie Meek.

These essays renew a continuing dialog into the meaning of some of President Truman's most important decisions.
