The Dramatic Genius of Charles Fuller
The Dramatic Genius of Charles Fuller is an accessible and appropriate introduction to the mind of Fuller for those who know his work and those who do not. In the strictest sense of the word Charles Fuller was not merely someone who writes, but an intellectual who reflected on the entire process of bringing new ideas into existence.

Revolutionary Pedagogy: Primer for Teachers of Black Children is a passionate appeal to teachers to take what George Dei calls a “transgressive” position toward education’s status quo, a status quo often expressed as a commitment to excellence of all students. This book offers tools for those who want to reverse the brain freeze that often accompanies this seemingly innocuous goal, assisting both the students and the teachers laboring in urban situations.

We Will Tell Our Own Story
These authors, all deeply dedicated to the telling of an African story, are committed to righting the wrongs of intellectual inquiry by setting upright the standards, criteria, and assumptions often avoided by Eurocentrists—of any complexion. Without the ‘lions of Africa’ speaking and writing about their narratives, the fields of literature, philosophy, social science, history, and psychology, evidence would cede to those without the slightest idea about the African knowledge base or how to add to it. Thus, the authors in this volume speak loudly, and write deftly and definitively to erect a new phalanx of liberated minds.
