Description:

Paperback. 278 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.6in.In 2006, the General Assembly of the International Astronomical Union, declared that Pluto was not a planet. Pluto was essentially voted off the island, demoted, deemed inferior. The author postulates that if Pluto were a man, this devaluation and subsequent loss of status may have resulted in a damaged ego or broken spirit. The author likens Plutos plight, to that of the Negro, asserting that slavery and segregation have essentially Plutoed the black man. In Plutoed by Slavery, he examines how the centuries long practices of slavery and segregation have impacted the social, economic, and political development of the Black race. The writer looks at how far the descendants of slaves have come, how far they have to go, and how they can get there. But, hes not interested in belaboring facts already in evidence -that slavery was morally repugnant; instead, he advocates for personal, familial and collective responsibility, challenging black people globally to use their history and the suffering of their ancestors not as an excuse, but as a motivator. Plutoed by Slavery, is a thought provoking copyright thesis and should be required reading for all. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.

Synopsis: In 2006, the General Assembly of the International Astronomical Union, declared that Pluto was not a planet. Pluto was essentially voted off the island, demoted, deemed inferior. The author postulates that if Pluto were a man, this devaluation and subsequent loss of status may have resulted in a damaged ego or broken spirit. The author likens Pluto's plight, to that of the Negro, asserting that slavery and segregation have essentially "Plutoed" the black man. In Plutoed by Slavery, he examines how the centuries' long practices of slavery and segregation have impacted the social, economic, and political development of the Black race. The writer looks at how far the descendants of slaves have come, how far they have to go, and how they can get there. But, he's not interested in belaboring facts already in evidence -that slavery was morally repugnant; instead, he advocates for personal, familial and collective responsibility, challenging black people globally to use their history and the suffering of their ancestors not as an excuse, but as a motivator. Plutoed by Slavery, is a thought provoking copyright thesis and should be required reading for all.
