Is Black People's Hope Still On A Tightrope?
This book was read by me prior to the inauguration of Barack Obama to the Presidency in Jan. 2009. So it comes before the riff occurred between Dr. West and President Obama. However, the words in this particular chapter related to race and identity for Black Americans is quite provocative and detailed. Dr. West speaks of the 244 years in which we as a people suffered through the social death of slavery.
