While the story of John B. Rayner is not widely known, this African American educator and Populist leader, the son of a politically powerful white slaveholder from North Carolina, was a political maverick who dared to challenge the Democratic Party and the Post-Civil War South's racial orthodoxy.

Indeed, John B. Rayner's story sometimes triumphant, occasionally shameful, mostly tragic has much to tell us about the tumultuous era in which he lived. His early experiences as a local Republican officeholder in the 1870s illustrate many of the contradictory features of Reconstruction. Likewise, his rise to prominence as an orator, organizer, and political strategist for the Texas People's Party in the 1890s illuminates both the promise and disappointment of the agrarian movement and the limits of political inclusion. Finally, Rayner's zigzag course after 1900 depicts the nearly impossible position that a talented, politically active African American found himself in during the age of Jim Crow.

Ideal for use as supplementary reading for courses in Southern, Texas, and African American history, Professor Cantrell's compelling study is certain to be enjoyed by history students of all levels.

About the Author:

Gregg Cantrell

Review:

"Gregg Cantrell's excellent book...is a welcome addition to the literature on southern political life, race relations, and populism. ... Cantrell's portrayal of Rayner's grass-roots populism is top notch. ... There is much to admire in this work, especially Cantrell's sharp analytical skills, his sophisticated weaving of examples into the narrative, and his explanation of terms and locations." (The North Carolina Historical Review, January 2002)
