BlackCommentator.com: Ten Years of BC: A Contemporary History


Bookmark and Share
 

For our August hiatus, we’ve prepared something special for you, Ten Years of BC: A Contemporary History. This is recent history as viewed through the commentators of BlackCommentator.com, some of the best writers and thinkers of our time.

 

What were the BC writers saying in the run up to the 2008 elections? What were their concerns? Have we as a country and a people and the human race addressed them? What themes continue today? What is different and what has remained the same?

 

As events unfold, it is easy to see the direction an issue has taken through the lens of what has actually occurred. For example, do you remember when BC commentators called for Single-Payer, Universal Health Care? There was a time when that was the direction the US could have taken. What you will read will give you insight into how we may yet make it a reality in the US.

 

Ten Years of BC: A Contemporary History delves into the plight of working people; the continuance of war and the prospect for peace; the issues surrounding how we educate our children; how we, as a people, respond to catastrophe in New Orleans, Haiti, Africa, or in the lives of the 99%. You will explore the growth of the prison-industrial complex and how that growth impacts your own life. In Ten Years of BC: A Contemporary History, you will find the definitive companion to enhance your own understanding of issues concerning economic justice, social justice and peace.

 

We hope you enjoy Ten Years of BC: A Contemporary History. Please click here to let us know what you think.
