Gwaltney, a student of Dr. Margaret Mead, went in search of "Core Black People"--the ordinary men and women of Black America--and asked them to define their culture. The result was an oral history of the ideas, values, and attitudes that inform Black life in America. "Drylongso" won the first Association of Black Anthropologists Publication Award when it was first released in 1980.
