From Man to Superman: Dr. John Henrik Clarke vs. Herman Cain


Product Description
This book is the sequel to J.A. Rogers’ book: From Superman to Man and is an introduction to the field of African Studies. Here are 2 reviews by prominent scholars in the field of African Studies and former colleagues of Dr. John Henrik Clarke: “Early in his career, I recognized that Dr. John Henrik Clarke was a brilliant intellectual and unique person. He invited me to join the faculty in the Department of Black and Puerto Rican Studies at Hunter College, CUNY. In this stirring discussion of African global history and politics, Maurice Miles Martinez brings Dr. Clarke alive for a new generation of readers and shows why his approach is still relevant to the struggle facing Africans and the African Diaspora today. By having Dr. Clarke encounter Herman Cain on a South-to-North bus ride, Martinez academically and metaphorically demonstrates Dr. Clarke’s desire to teach everywhere he went and to challenge those in power to outline a genuine economic, political and cultural roadmap for African people.” --Tilden Lemelle, Ph.D. and former Professor and Chair of the Department of Black and Puerto Rican Studies at Hunter College, CUNY ****************************************** “As a former colleague and friend of Dr. John Henrik Clarke, I found that Martinez captured his personality, his spirit and his desire to spread knowledge about Africa even to those who may be doubtful. Over the years, I traveled to the African continent with Dr. Clarke. Using more than 200 sources, many of which Dr. Clarke regularly cited in his lectures, Martinez brings forth Dr. Clarke’s approach to African History, his gift of persuasion by using irrefutable facts, and his desire to engage with those who did not see his point of view.” --Bert Green, Ph.D. Herbert H. Lehman College, CUNY
