    Book Description:

    This indispensable work urging removal of the color barrier remains one of the key commentaries on the question of race in the modern era.

    First published in 1956, it arose from Richard Wright’s participation in a global conference held in Bandung, Indonesia, in April 1955.

    With this report of what happened at Bandung, Wright exhorts Western nations, largely responsible for the poverty and ignorance in their former colonies, to destroy racial impediments and to work with the leadership of the new nations in moving toward modernization and industrialization under a free democratic system rather than under Communist totalitarianism.

    CONTENTS: Foreword by Gunnar Myrdal • Bandung: Beyond Left and Right • Race and Religion at Bandung • Communism at Bundung • Racial Shame at Bundung • The Western World at Bandung • Afterword by Amritjit Singh
