David Greene, a retired adult education teacher, moved back to Newark, Ohio with his wife Dr. Janet Greene in 2009. He has written a new and exciting book about education for social change. The book is entitled “Unfit to be a Slave”, a Guide to Adult Education for Liberation. It is written out of over 40 years of experience in adult and worker education. The book was published in 2015 by Sense Publishers and is also available from Amazon.com, Barnes and Nobles and as an e-book.
Starting from conditions of inequality, injustice and a diminishing standard of living, David’s manuscript tells the lived stories of many people trying to survive and protect their families and communities. Too often we blame ourselves for circumstances beyond our control. Social problems require social solutions, not mythologies that would have us believe, ‘Things don’t change’ or ‘We can’t do anything.’
The new work affirms that,” As a collective and organized force we can transform our communities, our countries and our world. To do this we need the clearest reflection of the real world. “Unfit to be a Slave” employs the tools of theory and informed practice to guide us to share experience, study history’s lessons and develop the consciousness that we need. David Greene’s writing also asserts solemnly the strengths and knowledge that the working class of people have, and the fundamental striving for a better life.
