Based on a unique range of articles over a decade, this book demonstrates how Black communities taming the
new technologies challenge the Internet power elites. The message is clear: government and corporate leaders, charities and international development agencies must learn to plan for popular participation in digital democracy. Community leaders in Britain, America and Sub-Saharan Africa are determined to overcome information poverty, communicate their ideas, and build social capital with computers and the Internet. These bold initiatives herald a profound global movement for cyber-social action.
