Which would you start with?His books are vital to understanding black idenity in America and across the globe where black peoples have been colonized. Great post colonial study. I've already read them several time back to back. His books are the type of books you have to really study.
This ^^ bolded part gives me pause. Is this book about feminism and how the black man needs to curb his masculinity?The Will to Change: Men Masculinity and Love
bell hooks at her usual groundbreaking best! Micro level cruelty is on trial often in this book as hooks discusses how current systems of domination prevent males from experiencing and expressing love. The shutting down of vulnerable emotions prevents men from expressing love and also prevents others from getting to know us. And make no mistake, men cannot experience love if we refuse to share our most vulnerable selves. To be clear, all genders have embraced patriarchal dominance and thereby this system of volatility and control is perpetuated across the gender continuum. hooks explains why traditional masculinity is the enemy of the Black family and Black male mental health; all the while offering a blue print for rejecting patriarchy and embracing a form of manhood which challenges sexism, strengthens emotional connections and facilitates loving relationships.
I read Fanon's books back in the 70s. Those book will open your mind. Don't forget to read "The Wretched of the Earth."
Started it January 1st 2014...I read sentences, pages, and concepts in that book I knew in my gut my whole life, yet had no scholarship to verify them.The destruction of black civilization by chancellor williams. A Must read.
I really enjoyed this read about a Black man in high finance behind takeovers and mergers.
I did say it will open minds.

You are absolutely right, a MUST read, especially the last chapter. This ninja had the blueprint 30 years AGO and it is even easier to implement and augment now, due to the advances in the transfer of information.

Hate he transitioned when he did...
