Meet the Author

African American author Michael Alan Townsend has penned a new book on an old problem, Black empowerment. In his first book he has combined history, current events, and statistical data to show Blacks the way to empowerment. This book is unique in the way Mr. Townsend approaches the issue. He examines economic, sociological, and psychological problems; he then uses a modified How to/ Self-help format to illustrate the steps toward Black empowerment. "I’ve always found self-help books easy to follow," he explains. Still he points out, "This is not a self help book."
This book deals with a complex issue in a surprisingly simple way. Examples are taken from the Black experience and analyzed in relation to other ethnic groups, as well as methods of empowerment. Analogies are drawn between history and current events to illustrate key points. He uses these points to outline his controversial method for obtaining Reparations.

The author attempts to write in a style that will appeal to both adults and young adults. "This is a simple book for a complicated people," so says Mr. Townsend. "My goal is to inform not confuse." In keeping with this philosophy he has included a glossary, index, and references for further study. Townsend has pored over one year worth of research and observation into his freshman work. The reader will find this book informative and yet easy to retain.
