Description
Obama's American Dream--Non-Discrimination, Economic Salvation & HumanityA 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 for presidency of 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 Caucus, Rev. Lennox Yearwood, Jr.'s Foreword refers to Clenora as "profound in her discourse;" Atty. Alvin O. Chambliss, Jr.'s 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 20-year 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 [whose message represents] things worth fighting for." - from Amzon
