Description: In 'Race and Resistance: African-Americans in the 21st Century', an outstanding group of essayists, including Amiri Baraka, Angela Davis, Bill Fletcher, bell hooks, Julianne Malveaux, Manning Marable, Ron Daniels, Sonia Sanchez, Johnita Scott-Obadele, Charles Simmons, Alice Tait, and Yvonne Bynoe write on topics such as hip hop, feminism, the economy, the labor movement, the emergence of the Black Radical Congress, and the criminal justice system.
This broad, inclusive anthology makes a vital contribution to our understanding of racism and how it can be overcome. Essays address issues of spirituality and activism; wisdom and cultural expression; the continuing impact of AIDS in the African-American community; race and globalization; the anti-enforcement violence movement; black feminism, the history of the reparations movement in the US; environmental justice; and the media.
