Vee Appreciate this review. If I see this book in the library then I might read it. Other than that, I'll pass.


Demetrius Burns I will have to agree with you. I think this book is a bit antiquated and states the obvious in a lot of ways for us black people who have embraced post-blackness.

However, that said I think there are a lot of people who will embrace this book and need to read it.

Being black is much more expansive than we can ever realize but also serves as a microcosm in the overall make up of us as human beings.


Demetrius Burns However, for you to imply that this isn't an important work within the lexicon of African-American literature while not professing to be familiar with it is a bit misguided, no?
