About this Item

188 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.1in. x 0.5in.To Kill and Die: Dark Man of Violence describes the difficulties and limitations of a Black peoples pursuit of consciousness and power. The book asks what may be uncomfortable questions about Black consciousness, conscience, or identity, while running up against the intersection where Black identity and Black power meet the violence of oppression. Dark Man has been written in order to heed a darker purpose, which is to offer a signpost and waypoint for all those who suffer from violence, power, and other forms of oppression. After grounding my argument in the tradition of Black identity and existence, Dark Man follows the development of violence and power, including a notion of counter-violence that the dark man puts to use via provocative narrative. Dark Man is timely in the sense that issues and concerns affecting disadvantaged constituencies are never really out of style. Although there is a growing Black middle class, this owes mainly to predictable patterns of population growth and the propensity of a market-based democracy to stretch to include the affranchised slave. More importantly, however, is an expansive underclass that has not been mitigated in any way by the presence of urbane Black sophisticates. Indeed the Black underclass has only broadened and deepened, to which Dark Man is not a cause, a victim, or an ally, but rather an outcome. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781432732844

About this title

Synopsis:

To Kill and Die: Dark Man of Violence describes the difficulties and limitations of a Black people's pursuit of consciousness and power. The book asks what may be uncomfortable questions about Black consciousness, conscience, or identity, while running up against the intersection where Black identity and Black power meet the violence of oppression.

"Dark Man" has been written in order to heed a “darker” purpose, which is to offer a signpost and waypoint for all those who suffer from violence, power, and other forms of oppression.

After grounding my argument in the tradition of Black identity and existence, Dark Man follows the development of violence and power, including a notion of counter-violence that the dark man puts to use via provocative narrative.

Dark Man is timely in the sense that issues and concerns affecting disadvantaged constituencies are never really out of style. Although there is a growing Black middle class, this owes mainly to predictable patterns of population growth and the propensity of a market-based democracy to stretch to include the affranchised slave. More importantly, however, is an expansive underclass that has not been mitigated in any way by the presence of urbane Black sophisticates. Indeed the Black underclass has only broadened and deepened, to which Dark Man is not a cause, a victim, or an ally, but rather an outcome.
