“In South Africa, Mandela once called the author, one of the few African-Americans to help lead the ANC, ‘a threat to national security’—in short, a terrorist. Wilderson was named such because he and his colleagues continued to clandestinely push for socialism by any means necessary while Mandela had embraced the military-corporate establishment and the idea of peace and reconciliation—the latter the author dismisses as “anger management for Blacks.” — From the review written by our co-host this afternoon Dr. Todd S. Burroughs. We were joined by the author, Dr. Frank Wilderson, III, for a discussion of South African history, politics and the pan-African reality of just “how impossible it is to live as a Black person in the world.”
