CFP: [African-American] The Three Minds of Black America
The Three Minds of Black America:
Tresconsciousness and the Twenty-First Century
Are you a man, woman, teen or child of African descent who has been torn by society's
expectations of race and class? Have you found yourself developing different personalities in the
workplace, in the church, in the neighborhood, in the classroom, with your family and with your
peers? Are you struggling to find your true self that is comfortable in all settings and situations?
Tresconsciousness, or triple consciousness, is the idea that Blacks in America are always torn
between the ideals of three distinct communities: Eurocentric America, the Black upper middle
class community and the greater Black community. As an African American develops their
personal identity we are striking a balance between each of the three aspects of ourselves.
A new anthology, The Three Minds of Black America: Tresconsciousness and the Twenty-First
Century is calling Africans, African-Americans, Blacks, West-Indians, Native Americans and
others of African descent to share a personal essay within this collection.
