Finally got around to buying this book... That was the best thing I did as far as literature is concerned. An African / Afrikan book, authored by An african / Afrikan for Africans /Afrikans describing an African / Afrikan problem.

I highly recommend this read to all Africans/ Afrikans wherever they may reside for this will give one a clear explanation as to why some behave as they do and most importantly the psychological wounds that many have been carrying over and across generations to the present day… This is not limited to African Americans but also applies to the wounded minds in the colonized countries.

I cannot find enough words to describe the relevance of this reading and I will summarize with the following words from Cicero…

"Not to know what happened before you were born is to remain forever a child."

I had came across this phenomenal lecturer on Youtube.com (from the advice of my mentor) and knew instantly that I wanted to hear more of what this woman had to say. This book is a great supplement to her Youtube.com video at http://youtu.be/PMVRyD4UlHk?t=20s. The Youtube video could stand alone; whereas, this book is icing. The Youtube seemed more detailed, especially in terms of cognitive dissonance and other things like the postcard pictures of lynchings. I think the video is more recent and therefore there are more supporting facts. Regardless, this should be required reading for African Americans, especially in an academic setting.

Even though America has a tarnished past, especially when it comes to the stain of slavery and the subsequent treatment of African Americans, this book offers hope and concrete steps to heal from PTSS. This book has touched me at a deep level, just hearing about other people's reactions was very validating, especially when it comes to anger seething beneath the surface.

One thing that I enjoyed learning through the video that wasn't in the book was that the Statue of Liberty's chains (not shown in most photos or on film) was supposed to symbolize America's abolition of slavery in 1865. We don't hear about that, but this has been a fact verified on the government's website at www.nps.gov/stli/historyculture/abolition.htm. This woman is phenomenal and I hope the truth continues to come out.

I just started this book, but from what I have read so far this book is amazing. America should ne ashamed and come clean about it's history. African Americans can take pride in knowing our survival abiliity. Some of this might explain the inherant angry below the surface of the African American. Can't wait to continue the read.

This book is foundational to our understanding of who we are. It provides an essential psychosocial-cultural-environmental perspective, which is explanatory.

This subject matter needs to be implemented in the US educational system. It's very important that all races get an understanding of this syndrome. I can not express how vital it is to read for a person of an African American heritage. This book will give a person of a non African American heritage insight into the mental plight of a African American living in America. It also, leaves the African American reader with a feeling that they are not alone in their thoughts of how slavery, Jim Crow, civil rights and now the prison industrial complex has and continues to effect the psyche of the present African American community. I thank the Dr. Joy for her research and dedication to writing this book. Excellent research references as well.
