Unlike The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman, which presents some black leaders, Ned
Douglass and Jimmy the One, solely concerned with the fight for equality, In My Father's House
brings in more of the personal problems that Philip Martin, the central protagonist, a civil rights
leader like Ned and Jimmy, has to deal with. A conflict between public responsibilities and
private needs is the central thematic concern of the novel.
