A Treatise on Black Studies: The Case and the Course.
Part one of this book details eight arguments for the institution of Black Studies in the United Kingdom, among which are the following: The need to redress imbalance and close the gap in mutual appreciation between black and white. A people must stretch back into the past for spiritual sustenance to maintain it in the present. To repair the damage done to black people being misled into the belief of their own backwardness. To help black people rediscover, reassess, reevaluate their identity. To combat the recent resurgence of antiblack literature posing as scientific treatises. To obviate the inevitable waste of human potential when opportunities for greater development are withheld. To emphasize the close affinity between the assertion of rights and the acceptance of responsibilities. To help train the underprivileged minority to play their rightful part in the wider society and indeed to talent spot for potential leaders. Part outlines a course of 36 lessons, which are put forward only as a model which can be amended to suit prevailing circumstances. They are aimed mainly at literate teenagers. Sectional courses that may be formulated from the 36 lessons are many. The lessons are divided into three sections and are arranged in chronological order. (Author/JM)
