Editorial Review:

Product Description:
In this short volume, George Moore discusses the various origins of name-giving practices in the African-American community over the years, from slavery through emancipation, from the Black Power movement and re-connection with African village traditions, real or romanticized, and wonders if parents unintentionally mark their children for failure and rejection by the use of names that are exotic and creative, but sometimes hilariously inappropriate.
