Africana Theory, Policy, and Leadership is an eclectic work that examines Africana issues from multiple angles, including literature, ethnography, gender, aesthetics, and diversity. The contributors to this volume add unique and insightful works to the collection of research and writing documenting the pan-African experience. Conyers offers the reader an interdisciplinary approach to the study of people of African descent with special emphasis on the black population of the United States. This collection addresses a wide range of topics. “Africana Literature as Social Science” reviews the scholarship of August Wilson and Suzan Lori-Parks. “How Homeland Eritrea Monitors Its American Diaspora” analyzes Eritrean government-diaspora tensions. “Toward Theorizing Gender without Feminism” and “Are Black Women the New Mules of the Prison Industrial Complex?” illustrates the double burden of race and gender borne by black women. “Africana Aesthetics” documents black life in post-Civil War Texas with photos. “Africana Studies and Diversity” explores the struggle to maintain athletic programs at historically black colleges. “The Africana Idea in Leadership Studies” offers an Afrocentric approach to the study of critical theory in leadership. This volume presents examples of Africana scholarship in major areas of work, including literature, politics, feminist studies, criminology, history, and sports studies, and is the most recent volume in Transaction’s Africana Studies series.

Obama's American Dream--Non-Discrimination, Economic Salvation & Humanity A Blueprint for the Restoration of America's Global Image and Leadership Columbia, MO-Africana Womanism & Race & Gender in the Presidential Candidacy of Barack Obama, advocating unity as a panacea for all societal ills, expounds on an authentic paradigm for all African Diaspora women. Clenora Hudson-Weems, PhD, uses Africana Womanism as a template for interpreting political activity, particularly the current controversial debates surrounding the Nation's 1st Black nominee for the Democratic Party for President of the United States of America, Barack Obama. The story of authenticity, human survival, economic security & racial healing for all, this book logically moves from the proper naming & defining of the Africana woman in Part One, to commentaries in Part Two on the biggest obstacle for our society--racism. The book exposes how this phenomenon insidiously impacts upon personal & public relationships, culminating in the current historical moment, as it unfolds in the ascendance of a Black man, Senator Barack Obama, to candidacy of presidency for the USA with his wife, Michelle, the potential 1st Lady. With the mission of restoring America's image and leadership once again in the global world, he has the potential of becoming one of the best U. S. Presidents ever. President & CEO of Hip Hop Culture, Rev. Lennox Yearwood, Jr., who wrote the Foreword, refers to Clenora as "profound in her discourse;" Atty. Alvin O. Chambliss, Jr., who wrote the Afterword, quotes her as saying "There is a great difference between discrimination by privilege & protection and discrimination by deprivation & exclusion;" Lillian Smith, Emmy Award Winner as former producer of T.V. Talk show, DONAHUE, acknowledges Clenora's "spiritual sense of genuine sisterhood;" & Barry Morrow, Oscar Award-Winning Co-Writer of Rain Man, calls her "a seasoned social, cultural, and political thinker."

This book critically examines the collection, interpretation, and analysis of quantitative and qualitative data from an Afrocentric perspective. The necessity of interpretive Afrocentric research is relevant to position agency and to locate Africana studies in place, space, and time. This study will provide readers with a compilation of literary, historical, philosophical, and social science essays that describe and evaluate the Africana experience from a methodological perspective. Paradoxically, the collection presents measurable and qualitative research, in order to flush out a global Pan–Africanist consciousness.

Ever since the first contacts between Europe and Africa, African people have been confined to the fringes of Eurocentric experience in the Western mind. Much of what we have studied in African history and culture, or literature and linguistics, or politics and economics, has been orchestrated from the standpoint of Europe's interests. Whether it is a matter of economics, history, politics, geographical concepts, or art, Africans have been seen as peripheral. This volume reviews the past in order to evaluate the present and move ahead with appropriate policies for the future. The authors focus on issues of affirmative action, legal culture, theories of black culture, and methodologies of scholarly work in Africana studies.Contents include: Cecil Blake, ""The Culture Nexus Construct in Africana Studies,"" Ronald Turner, ""On Palatable, Palliative, and Paralytic Affirmative Action, Grutter-Style,"" Winston A. Van Horne, ""Three Concepts of Legitimacy,"" Robert E. Weems, Jr., ""Africana Studies and the Quest for Black Economic Empowerment: What Can be Done,"" Ula Y. Taylor, ""Elijah Muhammad's Nation of Islam: Separatism, Regendering, and a Secular Approach to Black Power after Malcolm X,"" Lewis R. Gordon, ""Must Revolutionaries Sing the Blues? Thinking through Fanon and the Leitmotif of the Black Arts Movement,"" Delores P. Aldridge, ""Race, Gender, and Africana Theorizing,"" and James L. Conyers, ""Biography and Africology: Method and Interpretation."" The volume concludes with reviews of significant recent scholarship on black history and culture.Law, Culture, and Africana Studies will have particular interest for scholars in the fields of American and European studies, cultural studies, history, sociology, and specialists in African-American studies.
