Losing The Race: Self-Sabotage in Black America
Bio
C. Jermaine Jones is the author of From Poverty to Prosperity: A Ghetto Exit Strategy as a Rite of Passage, which won the 2013 Best Male Author of the Year Award. His orations, publications, and courses encompass his study of social inequity and injustice as they pertain to Black America and highlight how Black Literature and Hip Hop afford people of color to negotiate their identity in an America that takes no notice of them. He is cast in a much needed documentary entitled Virtues of Habit which will be released in 2021. The film recounts how race and class have colluded to create levels of poverty, despair, violence and injustice rarely discussed by political officials. He is also a council member of programming for the new Institute for Race, Justice, and Community Engagement (IRJC) at Montgomery College. Jones is currently finalizing a book titled Bulletproof Blood which surveys the inflammation of racial antagonism and its effects during the post-Barack Obama presidency.
