My First YouTube Book Talk

Today I did something I have never done before: I uploaded a message on YouTube about my book, Africans and Americans: Embracing Cultural Differences. Actually, I should confess that it was my daughter, Zawadi, who did all the technical work, from recording to uploading. I learned much from her. That, I guess, was my way of ringing in the New Year.



Interesting. I am doing work with cultures and people antagonistic to each other. I wonder how to move people to embrace the differences. I think, though, that the desire for harmony must exist first. I look forward to reading your book.

Thank you Susan, for your comment. I deal with the whole range of relationships, including the antagonistic. I am an optimist, addicted to the belief that with education and, especially, constant or prolonged interaction with the "other," mutual understanding can be achieved, which then can be harnessed into building harmony.

This might all be wishful thinking on my part, but it is what keeps me going.

Again, thank you very much for your comment.
