The American Studies project cannot “continue without an energetic scholarship that aims to inform a commitment to social justice,” says the author, a Black educator teaching in London. Dr. Anthony Monteiro’s battle for truth in Black scholarship reminds us that every generation must “build upon the magnificent legacy of the history of struggle waged by the African American people.”

Still the syn-tactical surgeon

With precision pen, atomic tenor,

Suturing my severed tongue
