Confessions of an Uncle Tom

Confessions of an Uncle Tom

I toil...

by Michael James and Donald Oh Brown

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 07/11/2012

 
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)

Michael James grew up in Penzance, West Cornwall. He moved to London at the age of 18 and worked at the five-star Selsdon Park Hotel before joining Tom Aikens at the two-Michelin star restaurant Pied-a-Terre.

It was here he met his Australian wife Pippa. After moving to Sydney in 2004, he had the opportunity to work and learn with Dave McGuinness and Paul Allam at Bourke Street Bakery.

This job was the start of his baking career, and he has never looked back.
