Dangleben releases book on black history

Mary Dangleben displays new book

Dominican-born writer Mary Dangleben has written, funded and published a book entitled ‘The History of a Black Man and Woman, Is this the Solution?’

Dangleben’s book is aimed at providing knowledge to black persons and spreading the message that they should not allow themselves to be re-colonized by larger nations.

In her book, she also emphasizes the many uses of hemp that has enabled countries to acquire wealth.

She told Dominica News Online  that she never received a formal education and would like to use the book to promote the right to access a university education for persons with financial limitations.

She lamented a situation where she said certain students from an education institution in Dominica were denied sitting their exams because they did not have the required exam fee of just a few dollars.

Dangleben believes that the education of prisoners should also be a priority. According to her, prisoners should be given the opportunity to be educated while incarcerated so that when released they will be equipped to re-enter working world. She believes this will prevent them from returning to a life of crime.

Dangleben said she is living off the income from her newly-released book, as well as 25 other books she claims to have written in the past.

    Ms. Dangleben, I do not deny that you are the author of this book and if you are I applaud you highly. I personally know a brother from home who did not have a High School education back but got his Masters in Houston, Texas. The fact remains that in the 70’s when I went to High School, there were many students who were very smart but could not go to High School due to limited space and not enough schools. That does not mean that those of us who may not have a so-called formal education are stupid. There are many of our peiople who are quite skillful but because they did not receive a formal education thery are looked down upon in our society. We have to realize that just because one studies books does not necessarily mean that they are smart. We study to be able to function in a working atmosphere because that’s how we survival economically. Have you heard the saying Education is not Wisdom? We choose to be educated in whatever field we are skillful in but that does not necessarily mean that we are wise.

    To hmmm.. why do you think that knowing about our race keeps us back? Do you think that the Europeans have forgotten who they are? Why is it that we are so scared to talk about our own race as a people? We would like to bury the fact that we are Africans but we can’t because that’s who we are as a race of people because our forefathers came from Africa as slaves. They did not come from Europe. The Europeans brought them to the Caribbean as slaves. Take it or leave but that’s the fact.

    Ms. Dangleben, as long as your work is legitimate, I encourage you to keep up with it.

    I read a few line of this book while at the saloon, she was there trying to sell a few books….Asked her a few questions and she could not even answer…I was amazed and left to wonder whether she was the one who actually wrote that book……
