White on White/Black on Black is a unique contribution to the philosophy of race. The book explores how fourteen philosophers, seven white and seven black, philosophically understand the dynamics of the process of racialization. Combined, the contributions demonstrate different and similar conceptual trajectories of raced identities that emerge from within and across the racial divide. Each of the fourteen philosophers, who share a textual space of exploration, name blackness/whiteness, revealing significant political, cultural, and existential aspects of what it means to be black/white. Through the power of naming and theorizing whiteness and blackness, White on White/Black on Black dares to bring clarity and complexity to our understanding of race identity.

In this thought-provoking volume, David R. Roediger has brought together some of the most important black writers throughout history to explore the question: What does it really mean to be white in America? From folktales and slave narratives to contemporary essays, poetry, and fiction, black writers have long been among America's keenest students of white consciousness and white behavior, but until now much of this writing has been ignored. Black on White reverses this trend by presenting the work of more than fifty major figures, including James Baldwin, Derrick Bell, Ralph Ellison, W.E.B. Du Bois, bell hooks, Toni Morrison, and Alice Walker to take a closer look at the many meanings of whiteness in our society. Rich in irony, artistry, passion, and common sense, these reflections on what Langston Hughes called "the ways of white folks" illustrate how whiteness as a racial identity derives its meaning not as a biological category but as a social construct designed to uphold racial inequality. Powerful and compelling, Black on White provides a much-needed perspective that is sure to have a major impact on the study of race and race relations in America. From the Trade Paperback edition.

John Fielder, Colorado's preeminent nature photographer, will publish his 50th Colorado book in fall, 2018. In the mold of Colorado's best-selling book of all time, Colorado 1870-2000, Fielder has chosen to represent his state exclusively in black and white. He edited 230 color images from his life's work in Colorado over the past 40 years, and rendered each in blacks, whites, and subtle tones of gray. Without the distraction of color, the viewer engages the shapes, textures, lines, and edges of this most scenic of states as never before. Divided into eight chapters, Fielder spares no subject endemic to his adopted state. From dramatic mountain reflections and wildlife galore, to 19th century mine building facades and ancestral Puebloan ruins, nothing has been left outƒƒ‚‚ƒ‚‚]ƒƒ‚‚ƒ‚‚€ƒƒ‚‚ƒ‚‚]except the color! Fielder has written captions for each of the 230 images in the book.

Any Charismatic Christian who reads these poems and prayers should be blessed. The poems on racism and dealing with identity issue should jerk my white Christian brothers and sisters to attention. The poems on abortion should have a similar affect on society as a whole. Most of the material here was written between 1981 and 1989 that is from when I was 16 to 24 years old. I was young and in some cases backslidden and angry with the Church. The racism I experienced as I grew up was real and was inside the Church and outside the Church. Finding who I was and to what I belonged was no easy task, but in all these challenges the Holy Spirit was the real helper and healer. So the prayers kept me sane. My sister almost went insane because of the racial conflicts she experience as a social worker among black and white social workers. Here is one solution to racism: The identity of the believer in the risen Messiah.
