Black History Month

Since it is the last day of Black History month, I am thinking today about who are my favorite Black authors. These would definitely be at the top of the list (although in no particular order):

  • Booker T. Washington
  • Dr. Martin Luther King
  • Dr. John Perkins
  • Dr. Tony Evans
  • Dr. Kawanza Kunjufu
  • Dr. Cornel West
  • Dr. George Yancey
  • Shelby Steele
  • John McWhorter
  • Ed Gilbreath

Who is on your list?

Hi Kevin,

Nice list! I know all of those you have listed except Dr. Kawanza Kunjufu. I could go to Google for more info, but it would be so much better to learn it from you.

BTW, I don't about Shelby Steele, but John McWhorter surely has a doctorate too.

A few other voices I might include would be Dr. John Hope Franklin, Tom Skinner, and Dr. David Daniels and Dr. Gloria Watkins aka belle hooks.

Blessings,

Shlomo

Sure enough, Shelby Steele also has a Ph D.
