...<b>Afrocentric Thought and Praxis: An Intellectual History.</b>, Gray, Cecil Conteen
2 Gray, Cecil Conteen ...Afrocentric Thought and Praxis: An Intellectual History.
Trenton, NY: African World Press, 2001 First Edition Softcover.
 
Unused, No flaws but minimal retail handling.
This book aims to show that the intellectual and activist/transformationist tradition of African people all over the world is a composite one, which transcends geographical, religious, language, and other apparent differences. Furthermore, this book explains that this composite African intellectual and activist/transformationist tradition consists of a great and high standard.
Gray's primary intent is to clarify and define the history of African-centered thought and its external and internal praxis, thereby offering an evaluative and creative tool for codifying it to fit present and future directions. By functioning as an intellectual and practical bridge, this compelling book aims to assist African people in their historical-intellectual and practical-transformational journey from where they are to where they need to be and from current realms of humanness and harmony to ever higher and deeper realms of humanness and harmony.

...<b> Nigger: The Strange Career of a Troublesome Word </b><br>, Kennedy, Randall

New York: Pantheon, 2002,
 9780375421723

 Hardcover in Dust Jacket.
 
The word is paradigmatically ugly, racist and inflammatory.

But is it different when Ice Cube uses it in a song than when, during the O.J. Simpson trial, Mark Fuhrman was accused of saying it? What about when Lenny Bruce uses it to "defang" it by sheer repetition? Or when Mark Twain uses it in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn to make an antiracist statement?

Kennedy, a professor at Harvard Law School and noted legal scholar, has produced an insightful and highly provocative book that raises vital questions about the relationship between language, politics, social norms and how society and culture confront racism.

Unused, Unread, Unopened. Clean, no flaws but for faint smell due to smoker's library. Dust Jacket with price has no flaws.

In 1732 Ambrose Madison, grandfather of the future president, languished for weeks in a sickbed then died. The death, soon after his arrival on the plantation, bore hallmarks of what planters assumed to be traditional African medicine.

African slaves were suspected of poisoning their master.

This book explores the many broader meanings of this suspected murder and its aftermath. It weaves together a series of transformations that followed, such as the negotiation of master-slave relations, the transformation of Igbo culture in the New World, and the social memory of a particular slave community.
