Wish I had more time
In America, Black Public Opinion carries about as much weight as the opinion of a young gazelle totally surrounded by 'a klan' of smiling, hungry hyenas. It is an exercise in futility.

However, that shouldn't negate nor thwart any attempt to prevent the inevitable.

This scenario must have been lingering in Melanye T. Prices' wonderfully, flexible brain when she decided to take on the task of putting together this 'starter kit' for activating discussions about the future of Black Amerikkka and the importance of keeping Black Nationalism at the forefront.

It does the heart good to know we have a notable mind in Africana Studies that is willing to push the Black Nationalist, charcoal-colored, Afrocentric envelope to the edge of the table.

Too often the opportunity is missed within the African American circles to honestly dialogue why many are adverse to the idea of an independent Black governed nation.

Melanye Price has the kind of wherewithal and spunk that makes one proud to be proud of choosing Black Nationalism as the most sensible and direct path to affirming collective African American maturity, ingenuity, creativity and civility.

On a side note:
I wish I had been there, towards the end of the book, when she asks the participants how they felt about the prospect of a separate Black America...she would have gotten an earful (and maybe, the idea of a book sequel; probably entitled...Sovereign Blackness).

Separation Now!
