    St. Clair Drake, the recently deceased anthropologist, has written an elaborate summary essay on the black experience as it relates to the continent of Africa. In his latter years at Stanford University, Drake was head of the University\u27s Black Studies program. It appears obvious that Drake\u27s consciousness was raised during this particular time span. The research and writing of this book is far different from his seminal work with Clayton (Black Metropolis, 1945). In his emeritus years, Drake decided to seek the high ground of an historical anthropological-philosopher and address certain issues that W.E.B. DuBois considered paramount to the study of black people throughout the diaspora

I first met Dwoskin at the Royal College of Art film school in London where I was a student in the 1970s and he was a part-time tutor. We were both Jewish with very different personal histories and experiences, but after I left the RCA he became a close personal friend. As a disabled American ex-patriat man he spent most of his adult life looking at the world through a camera lens, filming his friends and lovers, building an archive of footage that form part of these films, supplemented by the extensive home-movie footage filmed by his father, Henry, a carpenter. My analysis of his films is therefore coloured by my own personal recollections of him
