Description
Lowell "RaceMan" Thompson answers the questions America's leaders seem too afraid to even ask: How did our nation get into the racial mess it's in - and how do we get out? His background as one of America's first AfAm admen is the key. His "Thompson Branding Theory" (TBT) will revolutionize the way the world thinks about race. Thompson uses his experience and skills, gained over 35 years of creating TV, radio and print ads for many of America's leading ad agencies and advertisers to tackle America's oldest problem. Once you hear his answers, you'll never think about "race" the same way again.
About the author
Lowell Thompson is a Chicago-born, bred and based artist/writer/creative catalyst. He calls himself a "recovering adman" because he spent the first 35 years of his adulthood creating ads and commercials for many of the nation's biggest ad agencies and their clients. In fact, he was one of the first AfrAmericans hired in advertising when American companies finally opened themselves to "unwhites" after the 1968 assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the urban riots that followed. He began to transform himself from adman to "RaceMan" in the early 90s and now spends most of his ad design and writing savvy on his attempts to save the world, starting in Chicago, USA. (He says if Chicago can be saved, anyplace else in America should be relatively easy). "WHITEFOLKS: Seeing America Through Black Eyes" was his first book. Thompson designed, did the cover painting, wrote, set the type, and self-published it in 1995. It has become a classic in the arcane field of "Whiteness Studies", being one of the first books written on the subject...actually before it was a subject in academia. Thompson plans to republish it as an ebook as soon as the dust settles and he settles on a e-distributor. In February, 2010 Thompson helped write a book that quickly became Amazon's #1 non-fiction African-American book, "Brainwashed: Challenging the Myth of Black Inferiority". Although another AfrAmerican adman's name, Tom Burrell, is on the cover, Thompson had a major hand in both writing the book and designing and writing the full- color Branding and Brainwashing Timeline that is the centerpiece of the book. His last book, "African Americans in Chicago" came out in February 2012. It was published by Arcadia, America's largest publisher of local/ethnic pictorial history books. Thompson is also the creator of "Buy The Cover", which he says is the "first and only blog on the internet that rates only covers for title and design". His latest project is, "RACEMAN ANSWERS: America's Toughest Questions on Race, Inequality & More". It is due in October, 2013 and will herald a brand new format in publishing. Please stay tuned.
