Professor George Elliott Clarke, award-winning writer, poet, and playwright, will host the launch, organized by A Different Book List and Baraka Books.

For Ishmael Reed, Barack Obama is being tormented by reincarnations of those demonic people hired to break uppity slaves, the "Nigger Breakers." Reed establishes himself as the conscience of a country once moved by Martin Luther King's dream.
