Heru-Ka Anu, host of Chapters, Verse and Volumes: Literary Review Program will feature a discussion with author W.D. Wright about his latest book: The Crisis of the Black Intellectual
Wright says about this book: "Black intgellectuals today are essentially running away... instead of plunging into the depths to function as intellectuals, and to devise concepts, analytical categories, critique and bodies of thought for Blacks to help themselves, and that help Whites and other Americans understand Blacks. A result of the avoidance is the discernible inadequacy of much of Black intellectual thought... Black intellectuals generally side step or skim these analyses, which reflects inadequacy of thought and analysis on their part. This continues to be unfortunate for Blacks and America."
Listeners are invited to join the discussion by phone during the second half of the show.
