Covering Condemnation, For The Goal of Freedom

Phyllis Lynne Burns


An examination of reviews and articles on Elaine Brown's The Condemnation of Little B (2002) is necessary for any discussion of the objectives of this book and our collective struggle. It will be interesting to see how Condemnation has been defined, or re-defined, since Brown undoubtedly wants us to understand and ameliorate the wretched condition of Blacks in america. She examines the case of Michael Lewis, and the incarceration of Black children as adults in general, so that we can confront the national criminalization of Blackness and end the internment of Blacks within united states prisons. Although some reviewers are able to recognize the importance of Condemnation, they all miss the connection between the demonization of Blacks and americas political economic order.
