The Man Who Cried Genocide - An autobiography by William L. Patterson

This is an absorbing story, the record of a life-long, passionate struggle, thoroughly contemporary both in spirit and meaning. Son of a slave mother, Patterson as a young lawyer in Harlem soon found, together with his friend Paul Roberson, that the way out of racist wilderness was neither with the Establishment nor Black separatism. He became an outstanding leader, founder of the civil rights congress which led mass campaigns to save the victims of racial oppression. He initiated the Petition to the UN charging the
U.S. government with genocide against the Black people. His was rich and dramatic life-a black man's road to revolution in our country and in our times.
