The Devil You Know

Writes Blow: "The proposition is simple. As many Black descendants of the Great Migration as possible should return to the South from which their ancestors fled." By concentrating their political power in key Southern cities, Blow posits, Black Americans will be able to effect actual social change. "The mission begins with the states, which are the true centers of power in this country, and as such control the lion's share of the issues that bedevil Black lives: criminal justice, judicial processes, education, health care, economic opportunity and assistance." - - Hope Wabuke

This was an interesting book; the main proposal, that Black Americans should consider moving to the South for political and cultural power, was one I hadn't heard before.
