The Most Influential Black Thinkers History Has Forgotten Sadly, you could probably argue that the majority of black writers and intellectuals have been ignored by society. It's our loss. But someday it will seem inexcusable that we ever let any of these five brilliant thinkers and their big ideas fade from history; just remember, Zora Neale Hurston was once “forgotten” too.

RIP Albert Murray; Novelist, Essayist Was 97. Wrote and spoke so eloquently about jazz and blues
Scholar Saw a Multicolored American Culture - Albert Murray insisted that integration was necessary, inescapable & the only path forward for the country. And to those who would have isolated “black culture” from the American mainstream, he answered that it couldn’t be done. To him the currents of the black experience — expressed in language and music — run through American culture. helping to give the nation’s culture its very shape & sound.

Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (September 24, 1896 – December 21, 1940) was an American author of novels and short stories, whose works are the paradigm writings of the Jazz Age, a term he coined himself. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century. Fitzgerald is considered a member of the "Lost Generation" of the 1920s. He finished four novels: This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and Damned, Tender Is the Night, and his most famous, The Great Gatsby.

This monument to Russian-Georgian friendship, lonely and run down, towers above the military highway, a feat of engineering at the time of its construction between 1799 and 1817. The road was necessary for Russia to conquer the Caucasus. It also made it easier for Russia to protect Georgia against the Ottoman and Persian empires, but consequently the Georgians forfeited their independence.

The Omni-Americans written by Albert Murray: "Mr. Murray was one of the last surviving links to a period of flowering creativity and spreading ferment among the black intelligentsia in postwar America, when the growing force of the civil rights movement gave rise to new bodies of thought about black identity, black political power and the prospects for equality in a society with a history of racism."

A Clockwork Orange - Anthony Burgess. - A gruesomely witty cautionary tale Time Every generation should discover this book Time Out Not only about man's violent nature and his capacity to choose between good and evil. It is about the excitements and intoxicating effects of language
A Clockwork Orange - Anthony Burgess. Cover by David Pelham, illustrator and former art director at Penguin books
A Clockwork Orange by Anthony burgess I like this particular book cover because of it's use of bold illustrative colour it's simple and clear.
Georgia says: "A Clockwork Orange, Anthony Burgess (1962) but the 1972 cover designed by David Pelham, which has become truly iconic. This is a unique novel that, thanks to Stanley Kubrick's 1971 film, has become a fundamental cultural touchstone, and this cover evokes that aesthetic so is instantly recognisable and taps into the squeamish eye motif of the narrative."
