Sterling T. Anderson hopes to challenge beliefs and assumptions in his new book
WILMINGTON, N.C., Nov. 14, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- While author Sterling T. Anderson originally set out to write a book documenting his family history, he soon realized he was unable to leave out race and the influence of politics and religion. He mentions that these are "inextricably bound together in the consciousness of America."
In "Escaping the Delusions of Culture: A Cultural, Familial, and African American Reality," Sterling breaks the book up into segments that illuminate particular themes or share family insights, while he hopes to encourage readers to question the previously unquestioned topics, regarding the influence of politics and religion.
"I want to show how thoughts of the population are molded by those who control the means of communication," said Sterling, "and how we can avoid their traps."
"Escaping the Delusions of Culture" shares how historical and present-day issues affected the Black community. Anderson notes that these issues do not often stay within the African American community but spread out across America. He adds that many important decisions are ultimately made by the political class, and the attitudes of those holding office affect how resources are allocated. Those with the least political and financial clout are most likely to be adversely affected.
"The various topics in this book will no doubt challenge the reader," said Anderson, "but my main goal is to inform and hopefully inspire an appetite to question and examine personal assumptions, ideas and beliefs that may have been accepted without question."
