A conversation with Alan Sharp
CHANGING GENERATIONS: Challenging Power & Oppression in Britain Today
Find out what some white men really think about people of:
African descent ∙ Asians ∙Latin Americans ∙ and women.
Alan Sharp, a community development worker, has travelled extensively and worked among several groups of people. He has found that all these groups have one thing in common; they have all been held back by a system of white supremacy. Sharp’s claims are developed out of his own primary research and the adoption of an interdisciplinary approach, calling upon economics, philosophy, psychology, sociology, world history, women’s studies and youth and community studies.
Testimonials “...CHANGING GENERATIONS is a powerful and insightful account with suggestions of what white society, especially men, can learn from women and darker skinned people. This book focuses on solutions which should be acted upon in order to achieve, in some way, Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream of a just society. “...‘A timely challenging read which is a further wakeup call...” Richard Reddie.
