“Birth of a Nation is a brilliant, biting, and witty commentary on the chaos of the 2000 election. Hudlin and McGruder have achieved that rarest of things: a political satire that is also an extremely important and moving work of literature, an achievement for any writer or any artist at any time. Birth of a Nation is a unique event in the history of African American literature.” -Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
