/R E P E A T -- Ishmael Reed to launch Barack Obama and the Jim Crow Media,
The Return of the Nigger Breakers in Montreal on April 14/

MONTREAL, March 15 /CNW Telbec/ - The eminent American writer Ishmael Reed will be in Montreal to launch Barack Obama and the Jim Crow Media, The Return of the Nigger Breakers, Wednesday, April 14, at the Grün Vert Café, 2041 Saint-Denis, at 5:30 p.m.

For Ishmael Reed, Barack Obama is being tormented by modern reincarnations of those demonic people hired to break uppity slaves, the "Nigger Breakers."

Ishmael Reed examines Barack Obama's election and first year in power, establishing himself as the conscience of a country once moved by Martin Luther King's dream. Is the United States really "post-race" as claimed by some? Reed says No!

Ishmael Reed of Oakland CA is a prize-winning essayist, novelist, poet and playwright. He recently sparked a national debate on the film Precious and its "foul representations of blacks." He taught at the University of California (Berkeley) for 35 years.

Barack Obama and the Jim Crow Media, The Return of the Nigger Breakers (Baraka Books), in bookstores April 15, 2010.
