Complex People
 

Insights at the Intersection of Black Culture and American Social Life

Authored by Daryl C. Howard Ph.D.

Complex People is an insightful set of essays focused on various aspects of contemporary black culture. By analyzing several racial and cultural ideas, Dr. Howard provides an understanding of how American society is organized, not only based on merit, but also on the perceived strengths or weaknesses of certain groups. Unyielding in his challenge of ideas and patterns of behavior that support inequality, Howard gives considerable attention to mainstream education, symbolic imagery, misconceptions about black boys, and the suppression of women's worth in society. Debunking myths and revealing truths, these essays give context to various individual, family, and social dynamics in the black community. For the curious reader - regardless of race, class, or age - Complex People gives the necessary ingredients for a useful understanding of the unique and layered complexity of black life.
