About the Book

American Frankenstein is laced with reflective images and selective historical details. The book paints a clear picture of the causal factors resulting in today’s African American existence. It should educate the masses on the root causes for the African American condition and why African Americans represent either a vastly untapped pool of American human capital, or a huge catalyst in the nation’s downward social spiral. The book also has the potential to spark a new wave of dialog and debates about racial relations, history and diversity.


About the Author

Kyle Stanford Cramer was born and raised in Chicago Illinois during the height of the Civil Rights movement in the United States. During early childhood and adolescence, he lived in the Ida B. Wells housing project on Chicago’s south side. In the late 1960s, his family moved to Chicago’s South Shore community where Kyle experienced “White Flight” fi rsthand, and witnessed a community immediately changing from White to Black. Kyle attended South Shore High School, and against the odds, went on to Northern Illinois University (NIU) where he earned a Bachelor’s degree while living in an interracial environment for the fi rst time. Upon graduating NIU, Kyle began a career that exposed him to a world of comfort, affl uence and privilege known to too few African Americans. Kyle later obtained a Masters degree from Northwestern University. Kyle has always been infected and intrigued with the plight of African Americans, and when not working or spending time with his family, he is passionate about discussing, reading and writing about the topic. He lives on Chicago’s North Shore with his wife and two sons.
