He turns them round and round upon the wheel of Maya. Take refuge utterly in Him. By his grace you will find supreme peace, and the state which is beyond all change. As the above quotations indicate, almost all of the world's religions, in their own sacred writings and scriptures, say that they support "peace".
Sources Ishmael Reed is a bearded, paunchy but powerful-looking man whose activism extends beyond his writings. He is a tireless yet realistic promoter of Oakland, California as an integrated city, where blacks hold positions of power.
He is also president of the Before Columbus Foundation, which promotes the work of unknown ethnic writers. And he is an outspoken critic of the way blacks are treated on television, leading boycotts of network news programs and producing a series of videocassettes as an alternative to network TV viewing.
His books have been attacked by other black writers, feminists, and Establishment critics, who have accused him of being overly cynical and of harboring a hatred of women. Other literary critics have risen to his defense, however, praising his work for its innovative use of language and its deft construction of an alternate history and tradition for African Americans.
Much of this work has taken the form of hard-hitting, idiosyncratic social commentary, not necessarily reflective of mainstream black opinion. He has devoted himself, in his work, to the exploration of an alternative black aesthetic which he terms Neo-HooDooism.
