Historically, leadership style variation, particularly in the Civil Rights Movement was good because it represented an improvement in the social conditions of African Americans. Today, leadership flux represents disunion, apathy, and a lack of resolve for issues that cemented the African American community''s cause with regard to civil rights and liberties. The purpose of this book is to examine African American leadership and its impact on the African American community. Using the talented tenth theory that DuBois originally envisioned for the African American community to introduce intellactivism, my model for African American leadership. I will explain why his theory can still be effective if we use a different lens to identify talented tenth membership (African American leaders).
