"We are invited to read inStrangers to These Shoresthe story of a resilient society that is struggling to achieve unity out of diversity and, at the same time, guarantee the right to be different. . . . Robert Park, who taught sociology at the University of Chicago and Fisk University several decades ago, described people who understand the way of life of many different kinds of groups as having a wider horizon, keener intelligence, and a more rational point of view. If this is the kind of insight we would like to have, we should stay the course with this book as if it were our magic carpet that will carry us immediately into the unknown culture of many minority groups in this nation."
