It's all about love. The desire for acceptance is a powerful urge that struggles with the need to "just be me." Volume I of Confessions of an Uncle Tom by Michael James & Donald Brown begins this often painful but sometimes humorous exploration of the term "Uncle Tom" a universal concept basically meaning "sell-out." First, one has to admit the problem, dis-cover the schism's roots, then (toil) move forward to make your true contribution. As they say down home, "It ain't hard, it just ain't easy." Learn how and why Black-Americans (and you too) still struggle with this concept in a quest for positive self-identity and acceptance. "An American, a Negro, two souls, two thoughts, two unreconciled strivings; two warring ideals in one dark body, whose dogged strength alone keeps it from being torn asunder." - W.E.B. Dubois (1903)
