Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 097646909X, Paperback)

In "The Long Road from Slavery to Mental Illness", Calvin Thomas examines every aspect of Black life—from media images of Blacks, to civil rights legislation, including the issue of reparations. He describes in great detail how all aspects of White society work towards increasing the sense of disconnection every Black person feels from the society around him, and the distance between his image of himself and White images of him. Prominent Black figures-from Michael Jackson to Kobe Bryant, from O. J. Simpson to Condoleeza Rice, play a part in this compelling social commentary. No socially responsible individual, Black or White, can afford to miss this groundbreaking glimpse into the appalling state of race relations in the United States.
