"I have been to Africa and know it is not my home. America is; it is my country too, and has been for generations. I am committed to the search for its true meaning; I hope what I have found is not it. I am forced to hope for it and I have no choice but to meet the challenge of it."
This Is My Country Too. New York: New American Library (1965).
