From the author of "Let the Dead Bury Their Dead" comes a profoundly moving and provocative account--both timely and enduring--of the thinking, the feelings, and the lives of African-Americans in the nineties.
From the Publisher:
An authoritative look at the state of affairs for African Americans in the 1990s is based on interviews taken from diverse members of that community across the nation and explores both the hopes and difficulties of being black in America today.The account of a six-year journey across North America offers a sense of the state of race relations
Annotation:
Author Randall Kenan went on a multi-year quest to find the essence of black America. He traveled far and wide, and the resulting 200-plus interviews reflect a sense of individuality on the speaker's part and convey a sense of local history.

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"In taking to individuals seemingly so unrepresentative of the group he wants to understand Kenan violates every rule of the sociologist. And that may just be the reason [WALKING ON WATER] succeeds so well as a work of insight and compassion." - Alan Wolfe 03/14/1999
