Overview

"Black lives matter," "Hands up, don't shoot," and Black-on-Black crime are issues that continue to dominate the news. More than 150 years since the abolition of slavery in the United States of America, and over 50 years since the signing of the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and 1966, America is still at odds with its Black citizens. Within these pages lie a multi-stage plan that looks at what Black Americans can do for themselves to liberate themselves, realize self-determinism, and finally solve America's race problem.

About the Author

Marcus Johnson is a collegiate English instructor, writer, consultant, mentor to at-risk youth, and an aficionado of politics, social science, and various genres of literature. In addition to wearing these hats, he is also a dedicated worker within his religious community. Although he has spent the majority of his life in metro Atlanta, Georgia, he still claims Palmyra, Virginia as his hometown. Unlike the poetry and short stories that he has self-published and had published in literary magazines, Marcus's first nonfiction work - Concentrated Blackness - has been driven by an intense love for his people and what he identifies as critical to the self-determinism of those people.
