Amos N. Wilson Blueprint For Black Power from £ 59.99
A Moral, Political And Economic Imperative For The Twenty-First Century. Blueprint for Black Power: A Moral, Political And Economic Imperative For The Twenty-First Century, details a master plan for the power revolution necessary for Black survival in the 21st century. Amos Wilson that an African American/Caribbean/Pan-African bloc would be most potent for the generation and delivery of Black power in the United States and the World to counter White and Asian power networks. By breaking down the U.S. elite power structure of government, political parties, think tanks, corporations, foundations, media, interest groups, banking and foreign investment particulars. Potentially strong Black institutions as the church, media and think tanks; industry; collectives such as investment clubs and credit unions; rotating credit associations such as Afrikan-originated esusu, tontine and partner are analyzed. Review - "The title “Blueprint for Blackpower” speaks for itself in that it is a guide to understanding, analyzing and overcoming social constructs that inhibit collective empowerment for people of the African diaspora. It’s a powerful book that can be referred to for years to come as a teaching tool to transform lives with the ultimate goal of changing the trajectory of communities. It will open the reader’s mind to a deeper understanding of the African Americans’ plight in an economical and political context. One concept deeply engraved in this book is analyzing the African American population in the context of a nation. This perspective allows Dr.Wilson to succinctly place and assess the predicament African Americans are in and a vision to get out. Highly Recommended!" Published January 1st 1998. 889 pages.

Amos N. Wilson The Psychology Of Self-Hatred And Self-Defeat £ 29.99
Towards A Reclamation Of The Afrikan Mind Today's problems of self-hatred has very deep historical roots going way back into colonial history of the 15th Century and beyond. Amos Wilson breakdowns its origins as it evolved from biblical times with curse of Ham in the Old Testament up through the Middle Ages, enslavement, Jim Crow sadism and up to the present time. This journey has had long lasting impact on the creating, shaping and defining of the African American personality in particular, and the African personality worldwide. This text sets about exploring this development in its many aspects and attempts a reclamation of the African mind. Herein Amos Wilson attempts with surgical precision a remediation of this psycho-historical malady". Review - "Amos Wilson, is misrepresented as merely a Psychologist or even a social activist. Wilson is right up there with Frantz Fanon. Most black authors today are merely historians who write material that has emotive value, but little else. Wilson's work is of such importance and scholarship that it is the litmus test for any black man or woman with a genuine interest in how we became what we are today- both individually and collectively. In addition to pointing to how we got to where we are, Wilson does what so many black so-called intellectuals are unable to do- clearly layout the road to psychological transformation and renewal. A heart felt thanks to the people who continue to publish his works"! Published January 1st 2003. 305 pages. Published January 1 2020.
Raymond Winbush & Denise Wright The Osiris Papers £ 26.99
Reflections On The Life And Writings Of Dr. Francis Cress Welsing The Osiris Papers: Reflections on the Life and Writings of Dr. Frances Cress Welsing is intended to be the first of many treatises written to examine the life, theories, and contributions of Dr. Frances Cress Welsing. Some of these writings will be hagiographic. Some will be critical, but all will expand our understanding of one of the greatest African thinkers of the past 100 years. “There are so many things to feel about this woman” so for this volume, we assembled a group of scholars, social activists, and entertainers to write on one of the Nine Areas of White Supremacy outlined by Neely Fuller in his monumental work The United Independent Compensatory Code/System/Concept: A Compensatory Counter-Racist Code. You will learn how Mr. Fuller directly influenced the theories of Dr. Welsing. While Mr. Fuller asked “What is racism/white supremacy?,” Dr. Welsing asked “Why is there racism/white supremacy?” There is an important difference in these two queries and each will be answered in various ways throughout this volume by writers who 1) knew Dr. Welsing personally, 2) worked with her on various projects, or 3) are deeply familiar with her writings.
Amy Jacques Garvey Garvey & Garveyism £ 19.99
Like all great dreamers and planners, Marcus Garvey dreamed and planned ahead of his time and his peoples' ability to understand the significance of his life's work. A set of circumstances, mostly created by the world colonial powers, crushed this dreamer, but not his dreams. Due to persistence and years of sacrifice of Mrs. Amy Jacques Garvey, widow of Marcus Garvey, a large body of work by and about this great nationalist leader has been preserved and can be made available to a new generation of black people who have the power to turn his dreams into realities. From the introduction by John Henrik Clarke. Amy Euphemia Jacques Garvey was the Jamaican born second wife of Marcus Garvey, and a journalist and activist in her own right.

Review - "This personal account of the life and times of the late Marcus Garvey is written by the woman who knew his convictions and the resistance he faced best of all; his wife A. Jacques Garvey. If you are not familiar with the Black Star Liner and the 'Back to Africa Movement' this is a must read. Most of the content comes from writings of Garvey himself".

Chinweizu Decolonising The African Mind from £ 44.99
Sheds light on the continual exploitation of Africa by the West In this sequel to The West And The Rest Of Us, Chinweizu questions the colonial mentality, in its various manifestations, and how it has continually obstructed African economic development and cultural renaissance since political decolonization was achieved. And while it is generally known about the deleterious effects of European colonialism on African development, in Decolonising the African Mind, Chinweizu uncompromisingly reveals the same deleterious effects Arab colonialism has had on African development, in contrast to the generally held notion that domination of Africans by Arabs was some type of benign conquest in comparison to the white man. Chinweizu accurately stuns the reader that Europeans and Arabs have historical had their own political designs on the African continent, which was not for the benefit of African people. What becomes clear while reading this book, is that no matter what propaganda tries to suggest, Africa is not an overseas cash cow or provenience for Europeans or Arabs. Africans around the world must maintain the unapologetically and uncompromisingly claim their African identity, as opposed to being lost in some “multicultural” melting pot, with identities like “person of colour”. Which is ironic, as majority of the world has colour, the only people without colour is Europeans, by understanding the invasion of Africa by Arabs, Africans can understand that liberation will not come by negating one’s African identity into the fraternity of “people of colour”. Then central objective in decolonising the African mind is to overthrow the authority which alien and detrimental traditions exercise over the African. This demands the dismantling of white supremacist beliefs, and the structures which uphold them, in every area of African life. One should certainly use items from other traditions provided they are consistent with African cultural independence and serve African objectives; but one should neither ape nor revere them, let alone sacrifice African interest to them. Review - "Sheds light on the continual exploitation of Africa by the West wherein the so-called development of Africa is actually a debt trap from which developed nations benefit. Much food for thought here. The author moves beyond the "blame game" and explores solutions. I was also struck by the honesty and fairness when it came to measuring the scale and impact of outside influences on African society, culture, art and literature". Published 1st January 1987. 294 pages.
Dr. Claud Anderson Black Labor White Wealth £ 29.99
The Search For Power And Economic Justice. Black Labor White Wealth: The Search For Power And Economic Justice, Dr. Claud Anderson's first book, now a classic. From slavery and Jim Crow public policies that used black labor to construct a superpower nation. It breakdowns how black people were socially engineered into the lowest level of a real life Monopoly game, which they are neither playing or winning. Black Labor is a comprehensive analysis of the issues of race. Dr. Anderson uses the anaylsis in this book to offer solutions to America's race problem. Dr. Claud Anderson is a successful author who has popularised Black history and is widely recognised as one of America's most influential intellectuals. He has drawn the nation's attention to the issue of race and the advantages of redeveloping and industrialising black communities. Dr. Anderson has a broad and varied base of experiences spanning education, business, national and state politics and successful economic and social reform. Dr. Anderson has developed the popular concept of PowerNomics, a set of social-political and economic strategies based upon his analysis of the race problem as described in Black Labor. Review - "This book is truly an eye opener. By reading his material, I learned more contextual information about the historical struggles of black Americans than I ever did throughout my 16+ years in school. It is a shame how much our history classes have whitewashed the black narrative. Hence, I believe it should be required that all black individuals, young & old, read this book to genuinely grasp the intricacies of how institutionalised oppression has impacted our communities. Furthermore, this book is a must read for black Americans simply because the author gives us a solid blueprint on how we can improve our condition within society; his ideas are well-thought-out as he discusses strategies of focusing more on capitalism and group economics rather than chasing the elusive dream of "integration". Dr. Anderson's work is highly recommended and deserves a 5 star rating". Published August 1st 1994. 250 pages.
