The debt : what America owes to Blacks by Randall Robinson( Book )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The national bestseller by the author of Defending the Spirit. In this powerful and controversial book, distinguished African-American political leader and thinker Randall Robinson argues for the restoration of the rich history that slavery and segregation severed. Drawing from research and personal experience, he shows that only by reclaiming their lost past and proud heritage can blacks lay the foundation for their future. And white Americans can make reparations for slavery and the century of racial discrimination that followed with monetary restitution, educational programs, and the kinds of equal opportunities that will ensure the social and economic success of all its citizens. In a book that is both an unflinching indictment of past wrongs and an impassioned call to our nation to educate all Americans about the history of Africa and its people, Robinson makes a persuasive case for the debt white America owes blacks, and the debt blacks owe themselves

Post traumatic slave syndrome : America's legacy of enduring injury and healing by Joy DeGruy Leary( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From acclaimed author and researcher Dr. Joy DeGruy comes this fascinating book that explores the psychological and emotional impact on African Americans after enduring the horrific Middle Passage, over 300 years of slavery, followed by continued discrimination. From the beginning of American chattel slavery in the 1500's, until the ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment in 1865, Africans were hunted like animals, captured, sold, tortured, and raped. They experienced the worst kind of physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual abuse. Given such history, Dr. Joy DeGruy asked the question, "Isn't it likely those enslaved were severely traumatized' Furthermore, did the trauma and the effects of such horrific abuse end with the abolition of slavery'" Emancipation was followed by another hundred years of institutionalized subjugation through the enactment of Black Codes and Jim Crow laws, peonage and convict leasing, and domestic terrorism and lynching. Today the violations continue, and when combined with the crimes of the past, they result in further unmeasured injury. What do repeated traumas visited upon generation after generation of a people produce' What are the impacts of the ordeals associated with chattel slavery, and with the institutions that followed, on African Americans today' Dr. DeGruy answers these questions and more as she encourages African Americans to view their attitudes, assumptions, and emotions through the lens of history. By doing so, she argues they will gain a greater understanding of the impact centuries of slavery and oppression has had on African Americans. Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome is an important read for all Americans, as the institution of slavery has had an impact on every race and culture. "A masterwork. [DeGruy's] deep understanding, critical analysis, and determination to illuminate core truths are essential to addressing the long-lived devastation of slavery. Her book is the balm we need to heal ourselves and our relationships. It is a gift of wholeness."-Susan Taylor, former Editorial Director of Essence magazine
Defending the spirit : a Black life in America by Randall Robinson( Book )

2 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This searing memoir, written by one of today's most distinguished African-American political figures, paints a vivid and compelling picture of racism, not just in the American South or in South Africa, but in such sophisticated, seemingly enlightened communities as Harvard and Washington. Robinson describes his visits to Caribbean and African trouble spots, from the social strife of the western Sahara to South Africa, where he played a significant role in the dismantling of apartheid, to the restoration of democracy in Haiti. Robinson's tireless efforts to end racism worldwide led to the creation of TransAfrica, the first organization to advocate the interests of African and Caribbean peoples
