Self-published in 1899 and sold door-to-door by the author, this classic African-American novel—a gripping exploration of oppression, miscegenation, exploitation, and black empowerment—was a major bestseller in its day. The dramatic story of a conciliatory black man and a mulatto nationalist who grow up in a racist America and are driven to join a radical movement dedicated to the creation of an all-black nation in Texas, Imperium in Imperio had a profound influence on the development of black nationalism.
“A powerful, moving story . . . This new edition should restore Griggs to his rightful place among black intellectuals and protest novelists.”—John Stauffer, Frederick Douglass Prize winner for The Black Hearts of Men
