Points of View

Writings on Race from Diverse Perspectives (First Edition)
Edited by Molefi Kete Asante

Paperback ISBN: 978-1-63189-972-0, 270 pages


Rather than advancing a single, particular perspective Points of View: Writings on Race from Diverse Perspectives exposes readers to diverse positions, ideas, and attitudes that make discourse on racial representation one of the richest sources of intellectual debate and discussion in the social sciences and liberal arts.

The sections of the anthology explore racial discrimination, ethnocentrism, nationalism and race, race and historiography, culture, European perspectives on race, icons and symbols, and resisting and erasing racism.

The selected papers generate lively classroom conversation on the dynamics of social and racial situations, and can be assigned to individuals or small groups of students for review and analysis. Points of View can be used in courses in African American studies and African American social and political thought.
