More About This Book

Overview

_The Bhagavad-Gita in Black and White: From Mulatto Pride to Krishna Consciousness_ by Charles Michael Byrd Per our phone conversation, the following material should be included in the book's information for distribution to Baker & Taylor, Ingram, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble: ===Author's Bio=== Virginia native Charles Michael Byrd is of black, white and Cherokee heritage. As editor/publisher of the _Interracial Voice_ magazine (1995-2003), he appeared on Jim Lehrer's _News Hour_ and wrote Op-Eds for the _San Francisco Chronicle_ and _Newsday_. A student of Vedic scriptures, Mr. Byrd believes that individuals of mixed racial backgrounds quickly begin searching for a higher spiritual truth, something that allows them to make sense of the madness behind lumping human beings into separate and distinct racial groupings. ===Reviews=== An excellent and courageous piece of work. Charles Michael Byrd is to be congratulated on weaving what every man and woman ought to be doing in terms of "race consciousness" with the greater morality of the Bhagavad-Gita. The Melungeons, a mixed ethnic group, have lived with, and continue to struggle with, the issues presented and discussed so thoughtfully by Mr. Byrd. All human beings--not simply those who consider themselves mixed-race--owe the author a debt of gratitude. -- N. Brent Kennedy (Kingsport, TN Timely new application of timeless philosophy. A thoroughly enjoyable and very important book. It will benefit anyone who reads it, but perhaps will resonate most strongly with those of us whose bodies are mixed-race. As a mestizo or metis who has studied the Gita for over ten years, I was delighted to find this book which so ably brings out anapplication of its teachings from this new perspective and remaining completely within the message of the Gita.-- Belenios Ategnatos, Staten Island, NY "Highly recommended for those wishing to shed the shackles of 'racial' group identity in favor of embracing their right to be an individual." -- James A. Landrith Jr., Alexandria, VA Minces no words in letting the reader exactly know about the present-day "racial" landscape in the United States ... emphasis on joining and uniting the entire human family. Charles Michael Byrd, successful editor and publisher of the cyber-journal INTERRACIAL VOICE, has penned this short book with a purpose which, at first glance, appears to be a distilling of Indian Vedic scriptures and their applicability to providing a solution to the problems associated with a combative social system in the United States which is based on membership in "black" and "white" "racial" groups defined as such by rules which seem to guarantee their perpetuity. Eighteen chapters are offered in which a Vedic lesson is presented--each lesson is designed to be a springboard to writings of Mr. Byrd as he argues for an end to "race" consciousness, along the lines of the particular lesson. Many of such writings are taken from editorials and messages contained in INTERRACIAL VOICE over the years. -- William Javier Nelson, Ph.D., Raleigh, NC "Useful, timely, and authoritative. A book for humanity, and I recommend it be read slowly and thoughtfully in order to get the deeper meaning. - Michael J. Dahl, author of 'The Pharaoh's Son,' Burbank, CA
