Dr. Frances Cress Welsing Memorial Books on Justice and Racism

This section of Eso Won Books is dedicated to the courageous Fances Cress Welsing MD (author of: The Isis Papers:The Keys To The Colors) and the pursuit of justice. Over the years Eso Won Books has had a part in bringing Dr. Welsing to Los Angeles many times and the insuing discussions from her talks were always, always informative. Her analysis of contemporary events based on a counter-racist code of conduct never wavered. Our last event with Dr. Welsing was 2004 at Compton College of the Arts and Sciences. At this particular discussion she continually implored the audience "to turn that television off and read". Keep learning! We will think our way out of this situation if we just put the time in." Well it was correct then and is correct today, probably even more so (Mr. Trump).

This section will highlight books that we think will best help perpetuate a counter-racist message and help produce justice and peace in the universe.  Some of the suggested titles are not available online, don't hesitate to call the store for further information.

Dr. Welsing's theories, lectures and scientific papers have provoked controversy for many years. Now the compilation of her work in The Isis Papers is destined to change the course of history.
