Greetings fellow Aggies. My posting on this site slowed down considerably over the last few years largely because I have been working on my first book entitled Shelter in a Time of Storm: How Black Colleges Fostered Generations of Leadership and Activism. It is available now on UNC Press and can be pre-ordered through Amazon, Barnes and Nobles, etc. If you pre-order through UNC Press now, a 40% off discount can be applied by following the link below:
I would be deeply appreciative if you shared the trailer link with other Aggies and HBCU supporters on your social media outlets. The final chapter of the book focuses on the Black Power Movement at A&T and the book even features a quote from our very own poster Clarence Fisher- aka - Marchingband1969. I would be happy to field any questions about the book but moreover, I hope that this scholarship re-centers the narrative on why HBCUs have been so crucially important to the struggle for Black liberation and the fulfillment of American democracy. No institution has been more important to that struggle than our dear A&T. In doing so, I hope that it makes HBCU alumni across the country and the world proud of these vital institutions that still have so much to give to the causes of enlightenment and freedom.
Thanks for the support brother. You can pre-order right now. The book is officially released nation/world wide on April 16th, but if you pre-order now, you will most likely receive the book sometime between the end of February or March. Here's the link to ordering the book on Amazon:
Just ordered through my BAM account. Email confirmations says will ship April 16th.
Appreciate the support Decks!! I hope you find the book insightful and empowering. I know this is preaching to the choir on sites like this, but HBCUs have a lot to be proud of. I think this book will bring some of those more hidden stories to the forefront and help us rally a new generation in support of Black colleges.
