        I wanted to let you know about a book I just finished:  African Dreams  =
  To Tell Their Story of Old New York by A. J. Williams-Myers.  Dr. =
Willliams-Myers is a professor of Black Studies at the State University =
of New York at New Paltz. =20

        The main character is Cato Philipse, a Civil War veteran from the 54th =
Massachusetts Regiment, who finds himself slipping into alternate states =
of consciousness.  This appears to stem from a head wound that Cato =
received while he was in the service.  As he slips into these states, =
Cato experiences past events in New York's Black history such as the =
1712 slave rebellion, the slave conspiracy of 1741 and the 1834 New York =
City riot. =20

        Although the story is a bit contrived, it is still a good read and a =
great addition for anyone's Black literature collection.  It can be =
ordered directly from the author for $15 plus $2.50 postage & handling.  =
