Given that life has been relatively unfavorable for the majority of Black Americans historically, first 53 considers the options that Afrodescendants have selected in order to achieve a life of equality and devoid of racism. Specifically, 53 considers five pre-20th century nation formation and three independent living efforts that were undertaken by Black Americans. As a bonus two 20th century nation formation efforts are also detailed. Second, 53 develops a current and futuristic (out to 2050) statistical profile for Afrodescendants in the context of seven socio-economic categories: Population, employment, income, entrepreneurship, education, criminal justice, and health. These seven categories are analyzed statistically using a 53 paradigm: That is, five courses of action (Do Nothing, Accelerate Integration, Resegregate, Diaspora, and Nation Formatiion) for three classes of Afrodescendants (low, middle, and upper). The monograph does not present plans from the analyses- rather it invites Afrodescendants to join the discourse and to use the statistical forecasts that are provided to begin to formulate directions that Blacks Americans should take going forward. If you are serious about understanding Black Americas future, then 53 is a valid point of departure, and it is a book that you must have.
