Krishna and Arjuna at Kurukshetra

An indispensable aid for anyone seeking to transcend America's oppressive race-consciousness. Each section is fashioned after the eighteen chapters of the Bhagavad-gita, the essence of India's Vedic wisdom and one of the great spiritual and philosophical classics of the world. Along with synopses of each Gita chapter is commentary culled from Mr. Byrd's Interracial Voice editorials as well as from other contributors. In addition to each chapter’s race commentary is a specific Gita verse or two that expands on that commentary from the Vedic perspective.

This book is a revised and enlarged edition of Beyond Race: The Bhagavad-gita in Black and White with

Expanded introduction.
Dozens of new quotations from articles published in Interracial Voice.
Deeper understanding of the Gita’s relevance to the United States today.
New sections added with many precise parallels between scripture and the philosophy of multiracialism.

About the Author

Virginia native Charles Michael Byrd is of black, white and Cherokee heritage. As Editor/Publisher of the Interracial Voice magazine (1995-2003), he appeared on Jim Lehrer’s NewsHour and wrote Op-Eds for the San Francisco Chronicle and Newsday. A student of Vedic scriptures, Mr. Byrd believes that individuals of mixed racial backgrounds quickly begin searching for a higher spiritual truth, something that allows them to make sense of the madness behind lumping human beings into separate and distinct racial groupings.
