Maulana N. The following originally appeared in the Los Angeles Sentinel, January 14, , appearing here by permission. The passing of Dr. Frances Cress Welsing calls on us to pause and pay rightful homage to her--this accomplished and committed psychiatrist, activist-intellectual, author, way-opener and African woman of great weight and worth in the world. She audaciously and defiantly inserted herself in the annals of psychiatry and behavioral science and in the resistance discourse of Black people with her controversial and influential "The Cress Theory of Color-Confrontation and Racism White Supremacy ". And she would, amidst continued consternation from some and increasing admiration from others, dare to extend and deepen discussion of this provocative theory in her major work The Isis Papers: The Keys to the Colors.

This book is not only a must read for African people and people of color, but for all people. I have read that some reviewers point to her theory as "flawed" or suggested this book as a difficult read. Assesment of her preference of audience: I think Dr. There may have been some jargon here and there but overall the content is in a language that is overall simply comprehensive for all to read without overuasge of metaphors, idioms and other poetic language that could distort the message.
Cornell West. His book "Race Matters" was clearly written to appease the white establishment or his fellow black bougiousie contemporaries. There was a lot of "talking around" the race issue or circular thinking vice linear thinking, confronting race head on, which Dr.
Cress-Welsing does in this book. Assessment of theory: As for her theory, there may be some holes here and there. Based on facts and simple observation! Simply assess your environment and you will find parallels to Dr. Cress-Welsing's theory.
It's in the media, it's within the monuments across this nation. It is literally across all areas of human activity!!! This is the real deal! Once again, a must have!!!! Words can't even express.

Each day I am reminded of something she laid out in her work and it has brought me so much sanity and clarity within an unjust system.
This book should be required reading for black youth, especially non-white youth collectively. Because of Dr. Go to Amazon. Back to top. Get to Know Us. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. DPReview Digital Photography.
