Some Unsung Black Revolutionary Voices and Visions from Pre-Colony to Post-Independence and Beyond

edited by Bill F. Ndi

This volume confronts black problems rooted in historical and material realities of oppression, colonialism, slavery, corruption, and subjugation in a world deaf to the cries, voices, and visions of heralds of an imminent black revolution. Some Unsung Black Revolutionary Voices and Visions… gives readers new insights into the centrality of counter forces of the abovementioned material realities. The work is more of an ideal source for the editor’s sustained interest in these issues as well as any other historical shackle that chains and leaves the black man worldwide as a lesser man. This outstanding collection of essays explores the uniqueness and universality of Black Revolutionary Voices and Visions from the 19th Century to the 21st century.

This engaging and incisive volume offering a high interest in historical and literary revolution of African and African Diasporic revolutionaries explores the voices and visions of Martin Delany, Sutton E. Griggs, Harriet Jacobs, Gebreyessus Hailu, Zora Neale Hurston, Okot p’Btek, Fodéba Keïta, Walter Rodney, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, American Virgin Island Youths, Black Cultural Organizations, and Francis B. Nyamnjoh. The book is a gentle reminder of black pride that brings and connects in a coherent form the main struggles against which black creative thinkers, artists, activists, and historians fight to set the world free of pain, hurt, and corruption.
