The Third Migration: African Americans in Paris

by Theodore Fuller, PhD

African Americans have a rich history of human migration starting with the Middle Passage. They were violently separated from their homeland in Africa and brought to the southern coast of the United States and through their tireless efforts this country became one of the richest economies in the world through cotton production as well as the construction of historic institutions such as the White House. Around World War I, they made the transition from the agricultural South to the industrial North. This was called the Great Migration. However, their dreams turned into nightmares. In the North, they endured substandard living conditions, violent hate crimes and oppressive Jim Crow Laws. During the Great Migration a unique group of African Americans journeyed to Paris. They included adventurers, writers, activists, unsung heroes, and artists. This book seeks to document the experiences of each migration period and link them with respect to motives and outcome experiences.

A Secret Taboo: Homophobia in Black America 

by Theodore Fuller, PhD

Homophobia hurts everybody in the black community. This book serves to enlighten others regarding the etiology of homophobia, its historical development in the black community and its negative impact. Furthermore, it helps in breaking the homophobic stigma. Above all, the author hopes that it may be a baby step towards breaking the homosexual taboo regardless of sexual orientation. It liberates the fear and ignorance about homosexuals held by "straights" and enriches their lives and encourages black gays and lesbians of all ages to embrace their sexual orientation and come out to themselves or in their community.

Dr. Fuller's book " The Secret Taboo: Homophobia in Black America" has been archived at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in New York City. It is available for researchers interested in black LGBT history and black psychology.

Cain’s Descendants: Healthy Black Children in a Broken World 

by Theodore Fuller, PhD

This book endeavors to help families acquire special skills in rearing healthy children in a world where racism, poverty and the legacy of slavery are still very much alive and thriving in spite of many socio-economic gains made by blacks. The bible states that Cain inherited a life of unproductivity because of past sins and therefore black families and their children have inherited societal ills like racism for nothing other than the color of their skin. The failure to move forward can only create a vicious cycle of predetermined self-fulfilling prophecy. WE SHALL OVERCOME!
