Erasing Public Memory : Race, Aesthetics, and Cultural Amnesia in the Americas
Product Code: P327
ISBN: 9780881460582
Product Format: Paperback

Price: $30.00
Erasing Public Memory confronts the unacknowledged and uninterrogated assimilation of racial categories into aesthetic theories. The editors and contributors based much of their analysis on exposing the phenomenon that race and racism is at the very center of knowledge production in the academy, a process designed not so much to achieve a disinterested will to epistemological thresholds of truth, but to invent a racialized meta-rationality to the exclusion of all alternative ways of knowing.

DuBois as a pre-eminent, voracious, and demanding trans-Atlantic intellectual of the 20th century whose work sets the stage for understanding subjectivity and history in the 21st century. With online links to the songs in Souls, as well as studies of contemporary African and Pan-African issues, DuBois's influence as an activist intellectual is critically appraised.

The Cost of Unity: African American Agency and Education in the Christian Church, 1865-1914

Like other Protestant organizations in the United States, the Christian Church was involved in the establishment of schools for African- Americans in the South in the years following the end of the Civil War. The most widely read books offering an interpretation of the history of this church tend to relegate the role of black people to passive recipients of white benevolence and largesse in this process of education reform. This book examines the agency of African-Americans in the founding of educational institutions for blacks associated with the Christian Church. The philosophical discourse within the Christian Church concerning the purpose, type, and control of these schools is examined as well as the prevailing racial assumptions and attitudes that informed each of these areas.
