The 100th Monkey: Three Tales of Spiritual Revolution is an urban suspense thriller that chronicles the journey of three ordinary people mysteriously endowed with the ability to do the extraordinary; a transformation that places them on a quest for social change. Three thematically linked stories, set in the near future, track the exponential growth of new spiritual abilities that facilitate recipients’ abilities to alter a social dynamic dominated by inequality. The 100th Monkey contains three character-driven stories of personal and social change: “In-Lining,” “Boiling Energy,” and “Are You the One.”

The themes addressed within The 100th Monkey speak to the very issues that are at the heart of today’s post-racial, yet racially, ideologically, and economically stratified society. Set within the backdrop of a World Congress laying down draconian measures against groups seeking justice and equality for all, the protagonists throughout The 100th Monkey as well as the reader must confront face-to-face the primacy of faith in the human experience; the multifaceted expressions of faith and the relativity of truth; the role theology has in shaping our values and guiding our actions as individuals and as a society; race as a social construct; African initiative vs. African passive experience; the legacy of Eurocentrism in scholarship and religious teachings; and the impact social movements have on our understanding of reality.

Hence, The 100th Monkey, written by minister, activist and University of Houston African American Studies Professor, Aswad Walker, is a text that can be used in multiple disciplines, including Religious Studies, Africana (Black, African American) Studies, Sociology, History, Urban Studies, Political Science and U.S. and Global Race Relations. The book and offers critical information for Baby Boomers, Generation Xers, and Millennials alike.
