    An intersectional history of the shared struggle for African American and Latinx civil rights Spanning more than two hundred years, An African American and Latinx History of the United States is a revolutionary, politically charged narrative history, arguing that the “Global South” was crucial to the development of America as we know it. Subtitled “Blood and Bad Dreams: A South African Explores the Madness in His Country, His Tribe and Himself”, this book was a bestseller in South Africa and elsewhere when it came out in By a member of one of Afrikanerdom’s leading apartheid families, it goes into the heart of darkness of a country in turmoil.

    Due to racism and sexism, many of the histories, accomplishments and legacies of black women’s contributions to birth work has been forgotten. Much of American midwifery history focuses on white women, which erases and silences black midwives experiences and accomplishments. Secrets, Silences, and Betrayals is an invitation to readers to consider factoring in the often discarded or censored but useful information held by the dominated. The book s principal claim is that the unsaid weighs in significantly on the scale of semantic construction as that which is said.
