Description: Following his ground-breaking books of essays (From Plan to Planet, Enemies: The Clash of Races, and Black Men: Obsolete, Single, Dangerous?), Haki Madhubuti has refined and expanded his ideas to provide us with a book for nurturing ourselves and our young people into Black consciousness and activism. Claiming Earth: Race, Rage, Rape, Redemption: Blacks Seeking A Culture of Enlightened Empowerment outlines practical possibilities for the individual to contribute to, remain involved in, and positively impact on Black world struggle. Madhubuti insists, "My aim in Claiming Earth is to articulate a politics of empowerment at an individual, community and people level that is intimately tied to education, economics, social and environmental development and human politics for the many, rather than the corrupt few....Claiming Earth is about moving from victimhood to self-reliance, to ownership of self, resources, land and, yes, our tomorrows...I am in search of healthy rituals that aid in our continued renewal". Claiming Earth offers answers to what Madhubuti describes as White World Supremacy's "Culture of Containment". His analyzes of rape, sexism, capitalism, Black male imprisonment, parenting, Black loveships, Black culture, Black-Jewish relations, and Black leadership are solution-based and challenge readers to new levels of understanding the Black situation nationally and internationally.
