The Great African/African-American Intellectual Tradition for Liberation: Resistance Past, Present and BeyondbyArtnelson Concordia
In their exploration of Civil Rights history, they will see that the positive values of self-determination, sacrifice, responsibility to self and community, intellectual discipline, creativity, faith in humanity, resistance to oppression, love of life and commitment to justice, run deep and permeate the fight for civil rights. And as a result of this fight, all people are the beneficiaries of this rich legacy. As they enter broader society, I wish for these lessons to provide concrete, relevant and convincing arguments to move them to reverse the tragic irony of self-destructive behavior and motivate them to excel academically.
