BLACK A Misunderstood Race "Navigating America in Black Skin"
Have you experienced racism in America?
Do you think there is still a lot of work to do to right the wrongs of prejudice?
Mansa Mnēmē was born in a country south of the African equator but moved to the United States as a teenager. There, the author discovered that racism and prejudices still remained, despite many years of progress and law making.
In the memoir the author recalls the experiences as a black immigrant into the USA, seeing it through eyes that were not accustomed to western ways and practices.
The author does so without emotion or feeling and without expressing their own views, in a simple and straightforward look at why racism persists as it does and what can be done to change the way we act and think.
Covering important stages such as denial, acceptance and approval, Mansa Mnēmē moves on to write heartfelt letters to each side of the divide, in the hope that one day a true and lasting understanding will eventually come to pass.
