Black people of America, we need to stop reading books about thug life and street life. We need to read books that will open our minds to ideas and issues that will help us and our families and the future of black generations of this country. Black people of America, we were here before most of the other nationalities that are here now. We should be in a much better financial situation than we are in now. Most of us are at the bottom or near the bottom of the economic scale as a whole. We have to learn from the foreigners that stick together and open up businesses in our community. Plus we have to stop giving our hard-earned money to other nationalities and none to ourselves; in a way, we are still slaves. I wrote this book to inspire Black Americans to open there eyes to the positive changes we need to make to help our families and future black generations in America. This book shows how we are living compared to other nationalities in America, as well as the factors that are holding us back as a whole. We must remember our ancestors and the sacrifices they made when they were slaves. They were the strongest people in the world, and we are their descendants. I feel they were superhuman beings to make that trip from Africa to America. We as black Americans have that same ability in us to survive. Remember, we are the alpha race. We need to wake up and stop hitting the snooze button. May God bless this book and everyone that reads it.

"The biggest problem in Black America isn't crime, drugs, poverty, or inferior schools; it's the Black gender war between the Black male and female. Black Love Is A Revolutionary Act exposes the secret war that has been waged against the Black man and woman for over 500 years by America's power-elite-- and how they benefit from our destruction. The 13 Recipes for Black Gender Wars lays bare the manufactured confusion, conflicts, myths, and deceptions that are ripping black male and female relationships apart - and what we must do to neutralize them."-- p.

Rewritten from the ground up, the second part of the book series, Wake Up To Your True Identity, is a collection of life-changing proverbs and commentaries, written specifically for black people around the world who were born outside of Africa. Unlike the first book, which taught us about our history and heritage; this book teaches us how to develop our character and spirit.Ever since being dispersed from Africa, we've been indoctrinated by the racist philosophies of our oppressors and have been living by these lies for centuries. As a result of this mis-education, our personal and spiritual growth has been horribly stunted, causing us to be stagnant in almost every arena of our lives. Thus, explaining the continuous state of depression that "black people" seem to have globally.Contrary to popular belief, a lack of money is NOT the cause of our unhappiness, being mis-educated is. Knowledge is power, and since we have been wrongly taught; we don't have any power. So this book exists for one reason and for one reason only - to empower my people of the African Diaspora with the knowledge, wisdom and understanding you need to live a peaceful, productive, and purpose-driven life.

Riveting story about African-American relationships. The slaughter of the African-American male in slavery & the conspiracy to keep them from pro-creation. The feud between African-American men & women. The question Ms. Dakari rebels with, is there a difference in the way an African man is treated today than those African men of yesteryears? Is there still today a holocaust for the African man & woman? She examines the reasons as to why African people feel they need to emulate themselves into something they are not & will never be. There are questions that are asked, is racism the cause for so many African men & women in prison, or is it the self-destruction African people have on themselves?
Making it in Hell, says Bruce Jackson, is the spirit behind the sixty-five work songs gathered in this eloquent dispatch from a brutal era of prison life in the Deep South. Through engagingly documented song arrangements and profiles of their singers, Jackson shows how such pieces as "Hammer Ring," "Ration Blues," "Yellow Gal," and "Jody's Got My Wife and Gone" are like no other folk music forms: they are distinctly African in heritage, diminished in power and meaning outside their prison context, and used exclusively by black convicts. The songs helped workers through the rigors of cane cutting, logging, and cotton picking. Perhaps most important, they helped resolve the men's hopes and longings and allowed them a subtle outlet for grievances they could never voice when face-to-face with their jailers.

Topics range from the “alien” experience of blacks in America to the “wake up” cry peppering sci-fi literature, sermons, and activism. Interviews with rappers, composers, musicians, singers, authors, comic illustrators, painters, and DJs, as well as Afrofuturist professors, will provide a firsthand look at this fascinating movement.

The Malignant Ideology is a journey that explores the connection between black history and the gang violence endemic within our inner-city urban communities. Stephen J. Williams has diagnosed urban gang violence as a symptom of an actual de facto disease that has infected the manner in which an entire subculture has been conditioned to think. He traces this ideological malignancy back to West African tribalism, throughout slavery and African-American history, and makes the requisite connection between the circumstances, situations, and conditions perpetuated against blacks in America to the factors that contribute to the gang violence endemic within our inner-city urban communities. Having thoroughly diagnosed the many symptoms that cause gang violence to erupt, The Malignant Ideology provides a comprehensive prescription that, if taken as prescribed, has the power to fully eradicate gang violence in America.

Winner of the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction Longlisted for the National Book Award One of the New York Times Book Review's 10 Best Books of 2017 Former public defender James Forman, Jr. is a leading critic of mass incarceration and its disproportionate impact on people of colour. In Locking Up Our Own, he seeks to understand the war on crime that began in the 1970s and why it was supported by many African American leaders in the nation's urban centres. Forman shows us that the first substantial cohort of black mayors, judges and police chiefs took office amid a surge in crime and drug addiction. Many prominent black officials, including Washington, DC mayor Marion Barry and federal prosecutor Eric Holder, feared that the gains of the civil rights movement were being undermined by lawlessness - and thus embraced tough-on-crime measures, including longer sentences and aggressive police tactics. In the face of skyrocketing murder rates and the proliferation of open-air drug markets, they believed they had no choice. But the policies they adopted would have devastating consequences for residents of poor black neighbourhoods. A former public defender, Forman tells riveting stories of politicians, community activists, police officers, defendants and crime victims. He writes with compassion about individuals trapped in terrible dilemmas - from the men and women he represented in court to officials struggling to respond to a public safety emergency. Locking Up Our Own enriches our understanding of why American society became so punitive and offers important lessons to anyone concerned about the future of race and the criminal justice system.
Dr. Ben destroys the myth of a "white Jewish race" and the bigotry that has denied the existence of an African Jewish culture. He establishes the legitimacy of contemporary Black Jewish culture in Africa and the diaspora and predates its origin before ancient Nile Valley civilizations.
Volume 3 of Wake Up To Your True Identity is a meditation journal designed to help young black men of this generation explore and discover who they are as individuals and gain a sense of self-awareness. In this modern day society where our young black males are being socialized to become effeminate, the goal of this journal is to re-educate their minds to become the strong and mature men that our race so desperately needs them to be. This journal tackles this challenge using the method of self-psychology; by giving the reader the opportunity to examine their own selves. Each page of this journal asks the reader a simple but specific question that will prompt him to dig deep down into his soul for the answer. The questions are written as if the reader is asking himself the question and challenges him to evaluate his character and beliefs; so that He can see his flaws and be motivated to change. This journal also includes scriptures, to help inspire and empower the reader to grow into the man that He was created to be.
