by J.A. Rogers
J.A. Rogers has been an unsung hero of anthropology and African-American culture of the early to mid twentieth century in much the same way Paul Robeson's cultural legacy of the same time is today. The majority of his work, dating from the early 30s to the mid 1950s, is ironically ignored inverse proportion to the degree his conclusions are proven accurate.
The beauty of this seventy-one page book, however, is the egoless nature of it all. A mental giant and world traveler, J.A. Rogers could have easily written several tomes the likes of which would be ignored by both the general public and the academic world, cutting off his nose in spite of his face for the benefit of proving the voluminous nature of his education and little else.Read more ›
This book has provided a completely different perspective on history for me. There is so much that I did not know. The fact that this information is not made available in public schools is a huge disservice to us all. The title alone will prevent so many people from looking inside which will be a huge mistake on their part. This book is full of history that effects us all: black, white, brown, red, yellow- all the flippn colors of the rainbow. It is truly amazing. After I read a few excerpts to my mother she was astounded and asked to borrow my copy until her's arrived. The first copy of this book I purchased for myself in April; and the other two copies I purchased in May. I sent one to my mother and mailed the other one to my uncle in California. I have added sevel other books by this author to my wish list.
One of the best aspects of this book is the references to libraries; articles; ect and a few pictures.
Buy this book; you will not be disappointed
