Dr. Wilsons Works:The Developmental Psychology of the Black ChildTHE E-BOOK Are Black and White Children the same? Is the Black Child merely a White Child who happens to be painted Black? Are there any significant differences in the mental and physical growth and development of Black and White Children? What effects does race awareness have on the mental and personality development of Black Children? Are such leisure time activities as the playing of certain games, watching TV., going to the movies, listening to the radio, hazardous to the mental health of Black Children? Is the use of Black English a sign of mental inferiority? Why do Black Children generally score lower than White Children on I.Q. tests? Do Black parents socialize their children to be inferior to White Children? Why have integrated schools and busing failed so many Black Children? If you have been looking for a single source which deals with these and related controversial questions from a black perspective, then this book may be the book for you. For between its covers, The Developmental Psychology of the Black Child, the first of a UBCS series of books dealing with the growth, development, and education of the black child, in a scholarly but readily understandable way, forthrightly confronts these and other issues.
Awakening the Natural Genius of Black ChildrenTHE E-BOOK Afrikan children are naturally precocious and gifted. They begin life with a natural head start. However, their natural genius it too frequently underdeveloped and misdirected by (1) the fact that the racist and imperialist status quo politically mandates their intellectual under-achievement and social maladaptiveness; (2) belief in the myth that intelligence is fixed at birth and that Afrikans are innately less intelligent than Europeans; (3) a lack of knowledge of their positively unique developmental psychology; (4) a lack of confidence in their ability to equal or surpass the intellectual performance of any other ethnic group; and (5) the general lack of infant and early childhood educational experiences which stimulate, sustain and actualize their abundant human potential. Awakening the Natural Genius of Black Children provides effective means by which these political and social maladies may be fully remedies. Intelligence is not fixed at birth. The quality of children’s educational experiences during infancy and early childhood are substantially related to their measured intelligence, academic achievement and prosocial behavior. In this volume, Amos N. Wilson, author of the bestseller, The Developmental Psychology of the Black Child, surveys the daily routines, child-rearing practices, parent-child interactions, games and play materials, parent-training and pre-school programs which have made demonstrably outstanding and lasting differences in the intellectual, academic and social performance of Black children.Black-On-Black Violence: The Psychodynamics of Black Self-Annihilationin Service of White DominationTHE E-BOOK The Psychodynamics of Black Self-Annihilation in Service of White Domination represents a distinct milestone in criminology and Afrikan Studies. Its explanatory perspectives on the sociopsychological and politicoeconomic causes of Black-on-Black Violence are exceptionally insightful, incisive and iconoclastic. The Psychodynamics of the Black-on-Black criminal are presented here with a depth and clarity rarely seen before. The main thesis of this book is that the operational existence of Black-on-Black in the United States is psychologically and economically mandated by the White American- dominated status quo. The criminalization of the Black American male is a psychopolitically engineered process designed to maintain the dependency and relative powerlessness of the Afrikan American and Pan-African communities. Black-on-Black Violence, however, moves far beyond blaming the victimizer. Its meticulous and painstaking exposure of the psycho-social and intrapsychical dynamics of Black-on-Black criminality is startlingly revealing. Its analyses of the collective psyches of both the White
American and Black American communities are unsparingly and powerfully instructive. The reader will not be left unmoved. Although Professor Wilson argues that Black-on-Black Violence is orchestrated by White America’s need to maintain its oppressive domination of Black America, and of Western Europe’s need to continue-without end-its economic exploitation of Africa, he also contends that the ending of Black-on-Black violence is the primary, if not sole, responsibility of African people in America and abroad. This book, in revealing the anatomy of Black-on-Black violence, simultaneously lays the practical, intellectual and political foundations for its social eradication.Understanding Black Male Adolescent Violence: Its Remediation andPrevention In this ground-breaking volume, Amos Wilson shows in brilliant detail how American society creates and sustains Black-on-Black adolescent criminality in its inner-cities across the United States. He boldly asserts that Black-on-Black adolescent violence is rooted in historical and contemporary White-on-Black violence. He further argues that White-on- Black violence induces in the Afrikan American community a pervasive false consciousness, one which interacts with the adolescent crises of Black males and the socioeconomic conditions which typify inner-city communities to spawn criminality and violence. More than an explanatory analysis of Black male adolescent criminality, Understanding Black Adolescent Male Violence provides very practical and workable remedial and preventative approaches to this problem which threatens the vitality of the Afrikan American community.The Falsification of Afrikan Consciousness: Eurocentric History,Psychiatry, and the Politics of White Supremacy This book presents two ground-breaking lectures by Amos Wilson. The first, European Historiography and Oppression Exposed: An Afrikan Perspective and Analysis, was among the first contemporary analyses which delineated the role Eurocentric history-writing plays in rationalizing European oppression of Afrikan consciousness. It explicates why we should study history, how history-writing shapes the psychology of peoples and individuals, how Eurocentric history as mythology creates historical amnesia in Afrikans in order to rob them of the material, mental, social and spiritual wherewithal for overcoming poverty and oppression. Moreover, this engrossing lectures the relationship between the rediscovery and rewriting of Afrikan history and achievement of liberation and prosperity by Afrikan peoples. The second lecture, Eurocentric Political Dogmatism: Its Relationship to the Mental Health Diagnosis of Afrikan People, advances the contention that the alleged mental and behavioral maladaptiveness of oppressed Afrikan peoples is a political-economic necessity for the maintenance of White domination and imperialism. Furthermore, it indicts the Eurocentric mental health establishment for entering into collusion with the Eurocentric political establishment to oppress and exploit Afrikan peoples by officially sanctioning these egregious practices through its misdiagnosing, mislabeling, and mistreating of Afrikan
peoples’ behavioral reactions to their oppression and their efforts to win their freedom and independence.Blueprint for Black Power: A Moral, Political, and Economic Imperative forthe Twenty-First Century Blueprint for Black Power details a master plan for the power revolution necessary for Black survival in the 21st century. Blueprints posits that an African American/Caribbean/Pan- African bloc would be most potent for the generation and delivery of Black power in the United States and the World to counter White and Asian power networks. Wilson frames this imperative by deconstructing the U.S. elite power structure of government, political parties, think tanks, corporations, foundations, media, interest groups, banking and foreign investment particulars. Potentially strong Black institutions as the church, media and think tanks; industry; collectives such as investment clubs and credit unions; rotating credit associations such as Afrikan-originated esusu, tontine and partner are analyzed. Pan- Afrikanism, Black Nationalism, ethnocentrism and reparation are assessed, often misused and underused financial institutions as securities, mutual funds, stocks, bonds, underwriting, and incubators advocated, thus elucidating oft-negated opportunities for economic empowerment.Afrikan-Centered Consciousness versus The New World Order: Garveyismin the Age of Globalism In two masterful lectures contained within the pages of this modest text, Dr. Wilson challenges the all too pervasive assumption and false perception that the "New World Order" is somehow ordained -- that if Afrikan people are to progress, they have no other alternative but to remain colonized by White-Western interests. This of course is patently false. Dr. Wilson debunks this myth with an insightful analysis of the Legacy of Marcus Garvey and the proven validity of Afrikan-Centered Consciousness as necessary psychological and material tools in the struggle for true liberation.
