"Life Out of Context begins as a brooding examination of Mosley's own sense of cultural dislocation as an African-American writer. But die to a series of serendipitous events - the screening of a documentary about Africa, an inspiring encounter with Harry Belafonte and Hugh Masekela - Mosley has a set of epiphanies that turns the focus away from him. What can we do to fight injustice, poverty, exploitation, and racism? What is globalization doing to us?" "Through these late-night meditations, Mosley attempts to transcend his earlier feelings of living a "life out of context" and seeks instead to find a political context. He ends with a call to arms, proposing that African-Americans have to break their historic ties with the Democratic Party and form a party of their own. Mosley writes, "Economic globalism has pressed many lives out of context. It's about time we push back.""--BOOK JACKET.
