Black and Powerful

This book perfectly explains the dual universes black people live in and through. We have to switch between "being down" and "being uppity". Another great sermon by this amazing man

Food For Thought

Once again Dr. Dyson provides food for thought. While it may seem that he occasionally strays off course l, Dr. Dyson manages to sew it all together in the end. Whether you agree or disagree with his analysis, you will be fed with knowledge and insight leaving you hungry for more.

powerful!, motivating and eye opening.

Dr. Michael Eric Dyson delivers a power, motivating and eye opening message. I will be sure to listen to this book and his other books with my family, friends and all who want to be most with his powerful information. Excellence best describes Dr. Dyson!

He done gone and did it again!

Dr. Dee, like me, is an ethnolect, one who moved easily and freely between the two worlds in which Black Folks must dwell.
