In the Sourcebooks in Negro History series. “Dating fromthe heyday of Garveyism in the 1920's, Harlem's Congregation of Commandmen t Keepers, under the leadership of Rabbi Wentworth A. Matthew, represents an important stage of the black man's spiritual odyssey in the New World. Kept from all communion with his past through slavery and later stripped of the legal equality gained during Reconstruction, the American Negro has had to face the terrible task of creating ex nihilo his very identity. The sustaining myth of an Ethiopian-Hebrew origin , however inaccurate and set against a white Christianity, has sometimes put this small sect on the path toward “remoralization,” shared dignity, and a precious sense of self-reclamation. Dr. Brotz extrapolates from their achievement to a genuine and original analysis of the Negro's life style and place in a society defined by the white man. The political and historical material available here provide an indispensable introduction to what W.E.B. Dubois prophetically called the problem of the twentieth century, the problem of the color line.” - from theback cover. George Parkin Grant (1918-1988) was a Canadian philosopher, te acher and political commentator, whose popular appeal peaked in the late 1960s and 1970s. He is best known for his nationalism, political conservatism, comments on technology, pacifism, Christian faith, and conservative viewsregarding abortion and is credited as one of Canada's most original thinke rs. Grant was a faculty member at Dalhousie University, Halifax, N.S., twice (1947-1960, 1980-1988). Spine sunned, else very good. Signed with inscription from the author to George P. Grant. 30.00
