He was born in Chattanooga Tennessee, USA on 28 April 1932. He studied at Tallageda University and Fisk University. He was a Professor of African-American Studies at Oberlin College. He retired in 1999 and, according to Black Biography (Answers.com) and Contemporary Authors Online (Gale Research), he died on 1 October 2001. Some sources (Oxford Companion to African American Literature, Contemporary Authors Online) give his birth year as 1934. Curiously, other sources listed within the Oxford Companion to African American Literature give his birth year as June 23, 1933. The inconsistency appears to result from a typo found in the original text of Sex and Racism in America which listed the incorrect birthday for the author.
