The"other side" of ourselves 30 Jun 2001
By rampant reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
No one who teaches cultural diversity courses or does diversity training should be without Ebony Power Thoughts. It is a compact, convenient collection of African American philosophy that serves to balance a Eurocentric educational system. The wit and wisdom of Ben Franklin? How about the wit and wisdom of Tina Turner? Or Malcolm X? Was Booker T. Washington an "Uncle Tom" or a gifted leader who gave direction and hope to a generation at a time when to stand up for your rights could mean certain death or at least painful lessons? Depending on your own cultural origins, you will laugh, cry, curse, or fail to understand some of the quotations or the linguistic expressions between the covers of "Ebony" but your life will be enriched to the degree you reflect on the thoughts of African Americans represented here, many of whom succeeded against the odds in our society before Civil Rights and Affirmative Action. Do not be without this book.

I am cured 16 Jan 2000
By Cedric - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I used to be a weak black man. Now I'm an ebony powerhouse! Thanks, Tony. Your ancestors must have been very kind slave owners. You clearly know what it means to "live" ebony.
