BLACK HEAT is Norman Kelley's novelistic exploration of the
turbulent legacy of the 1960s black liberation movement-its
continuance in a watered-down post-nationalist Afrocentrism, its
perversion in the media-driven, get-rich schemes of the black
bourgeoisie. Caught in the crossfire is the intrepid and
resourceful Nina Halligan-formerly a Brooklyn assistant district
attorney, now a private investigator-who searches for the missing
daughter of a slain civil-rights leader while grappling with her
own rage concerning the murder of her family. "Kelley pushes a
heavy thumb on hot-button issues of black politics: Afrocentrism;
the appeal of televangelism; what it means to be authentically
black; FBI dirty tricks against civil-rights leaders"-Publishers
