AFRICA / AFRICAN AMERICANS / AFRICAN DIASPORA
THE INVISIBLE
WAR:
The African
American
Anti-Slavery
Resistance
from the Stono
Rebellion through
the Seminole Wars
/ Y. N. Kly
While the flight of Africans northward
through the Underground Railroad is
well known, there is virtual silence
surrounding the more logical, more
sizeable, and more politically
significant African flight southward to
then free territories in what is now
Georgia and Florida. From there, free
Africans fought a war of African
liberation on an African frontier.
Victor's history still disguises the
collective African resistance to slavery
as just another set of Indian wars...
the Seminole Wars.
WHERE WITCH
BIRDS FLY
/Eugene Harkins

“A fabulous book .”
—Scene Magazine
In the twilight of the Cold War, a
strange and horrific civil war erupted in
Sierra Leone that would ultimately lead
to a UN War Crimes Tribunal for
Crimes Against Humanity.  Harkins'
novel captures the toxic brew of forces
at play in the small West African
country –– Big Oil, Big Diamonds,
competing outside powers, foreign
mercenaries, and the local dominant
Lebanese Christian trading community
–– all intriguing to pillage the African
population’s assets to the point that a
brutal insurrection breaks out at last.

THE
RESTRUCTURING
OF AMERICA:
A Futurist Perspective
/ William Merwin
William Merwin's futurist fiction
speculates on what might happen in
the U.S. by the year 2016 AD if
America's dominant Anglo-American
population proved unwilling or unable
to successfully assimilate its
African-American and Hispanic
national minorities. If the three major
ethnic groups in America became
enmeshed in nationalist orientations,
could America break apart like the
former Soviet Union, with
autonomous ethnic territories or even
new nations emerging?

THE
ANTI-SOCIAL
CONTRACT
/ Y. N. Kly
Kly examines the key role of white
nationalism in U.S. history, and argues
that the current U.S. 'minority policy' of
civil rights/non discrimination / equality
before the law in actuality promotes
African-American assimilation, in
denial of their unique cultural identity,
which paradoxically was consolidated
through the systemic policies of
enslavement and segregation.
