About this Item: Thomas Nelson on Brilliance Audio, 2017. CD-Audio. Condition: New. Unabridged. Language: English . Brand New. In a small Georgia town, lines are drawn and tensions mount. Can one woman stand in the divide and find truth in the face of hate? Adisa Johnson, a young African American attorney, is living her dream of practicing high-stakes law with a prestigious firm in downtown Atlanta. Then, a split-second mistake destroys the world she s created. Left with no options, she returns to her hometown so she can care for an aging aunt recovering from a stroke. Once there, Adisa is confronted with a much more brutal reality--a young unarmed black man has been shot by a white police officer and now lies comatose in the hospital. As a former assistant district attorney, Adisa is itching to jump into the fight as a special prosecutor. But she s being pulled in another direction by equally powerful forces urging her to do what she considers unthinkable--defend the officer. Tensions in the local community are at the boiling point with Adisa trapped in the middle. As the case unfolds, everyone must confront their own prejudices. For Adisa, it means seeking counsel from her Aunt Josie and charting her way through the labyrinth of a relationship with Rev. Reggie Reynolds, a charismatic young preacher and leader of the local movement seeking justice for the young man who was shot. For the police officer, it means confronting why he acted as he did. Some problems have no solution. Some people don t know where to look for answers. Some people are called to be lights in the darkness. Seller Inventory # AAS9781536693836

About this Item: Chicago Review Press, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Born into a blue-collar family in the Jim Crow South, Herman J. Russell built a shoeshine business when he was twelve years old--and used the profits to buy a vacant lot where he built a duplex while he was still a teen. Over the next fifty years, he continued to build businesses, amassing one of the nation s most profitable minority-owned conglomerates. In Building Atlanta, Russell shares his inspiring life story and reveals how he overcame racism, poverty, and a debilitating speech impediment to become one of the most successful African American entrepreneurs, Atlanta civic leaders, and unsung heroes of the civil rights movement. Not just a typical rags-to-riches story, Russell achieved his success through focus, planning, and humility, and he shares his winning advice throughout. As a millionaire builder before the civil rights movement took hold and a friend of Dr. King, Ralph Abernathy, and Andrew Young, he quietly helped finance the civil rights crusade, putting up bond for protestors and providing the funds that kept King s dream alive. He provides a wonderful behind-the-scenes look at the role the business community, both black and white working together, played in Atlanta s peaceful progression from the capital of the racially divided Old South to the financial center of the New South.

About this Item: Jaded Ibis Press, United States, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Guy Benjamin Brookshire (illustrator). Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. BLACK AND WHITE EDITION So smart and quintessentially American - Suzanne Paola, author of Body Toxic and The Lives of the Saints Waiting up for the End of the World examines 20th / 21st century conspiracy theories from a poetic standpoint. First-person narrator road trips around the globe-from New York City, Dallas, Atlanta, Georgia, and Gakona, Alaska to Area 51, Lockerbie, Scotland, London, Paris, and Indonesia-to visit firsthand the sites of alleged secret plans and alliances and their sometimes cataclysmic outcomes, investigating through verse such topics as black helicopters, chemtrails, the North American Union, the fluoride conspiracy, and the JFK assassination, and exploring possible links between government and corporate corruption and the on-the-ground results of continued global overconsumption. Colen is not timid about addressing the perversities of American culture head-on. The subjects are dark, generating perhaps more discomfort than comfort, but Colen reminds us that the human heart is still quite functional. -D. A. Powell, Drunken Boat The poets I long for are the ones who aim their instruments at the eyes of culture and shoot without question. Elizabeth Colen is one of those poets I always trust to let it all be done! Count the bodies afterward! The conspiracy of Waiting Up for the End of the World for instance, it s her newest, brilliant collection. Arsonists are such failures at love. See, she just tells us where fire fails. And as the house burns down THIS BOOK is what you should grab when running to the door. Wave it in the faces of failure, which is another magic of waking us. -CAConrad, author of THE BOOK OF FRANK In Elizabeth J. Colen s Waiting Up for the End of the World, conspiracy theories provide the dark and obsessive scaffolding for poems woven with myths of paranoia as well as fragmented scenes of psychological tension. Colen transforms her sensational subjects with an eerie calm or giddy perversity, committed to juxtapositions and details that shiver with a grotesque luminosity: wig strands read a palm, coffee grounds in a mug form the shape of a skull, a brother staples a girl s arm to her sleeve. The duende who beckons from these poems is both pulsing alarm and violent seducer. In Colen s realm of danger, we ve followed the sound of the siren. -Anna Journey, author of If Birds Gather Your Hair for Nesting In Waiting Up for the End of the World: Conspiracies, Elizabeth Colen gives us a book of poems built around conspiracy tales, those guiding myths of our culture, a book so smart and quintessentially American it feels both uniquely personal and blazingly collective. Colen probes the nature of belief and gives us paranoia as resistance, storytelling as power, and the personal as inextricably tied to the social and political. I am eating this piece of cake./The first piece was for me, /the second for the end of the world, she writes in Day After, Over London, a poem that reimagines the crash of Pam Am Flight 103. The poems, stylistically flawless and each a jagged shard of the American dream, challenge us to rethink what we believe we know about the defining tales of our culture. -Suzanne Paola, author of Body Toxic and The Lives of the Saints.

About this Item: Jaded Ibis Press, United States, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Guy Benjamin Brookshire (illustrator). Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.BLACK AND WHITE EDITION So smart and quintessentially American - Suzanne Paola, author of Body Toxic and The Lives of the Saints Waiting up for the End of the World examines 20th / 21st century conspiracy theories from a poetic standpoint. First-person narrator road trips around the globe-from New York City, Dallas, Atlanta, Georgia, and Gakona, Alaska to Area 51, Lockerbie, Scotland, London, Paris, and Indonesia-to visit firsthand the sites of alleged secret plans and alliances and their sometimes cataclysmic outcomes, investigating through verse such topics as black helicopters, chemtrails, the North American Union, the fluoride conspiracy, and the JFK assassination, and exploring possible links between government and corporate corruption and the on-the-ground results of continued global overconsumption. Colen is not timid about addressing the perversities of American culture head-on. The subjects are dark, generating perhaps more discomfort than comfort, but Colen reminds us that the human heart is still quite functional. -D. A. Powell, Drunken Boat The poets I long for are the ones who aim their instruments at the eyes of culture and shoot without question. Elizabeth Colen is one of those poets I always trust to let it all be done! Count the bodies afterward! The conspiracy of Waiting Up for the End of the World for instance, it s her newest, brilliant collection. Arsonists are such failures at love. See, she just tells us where fire fails. And as the house burns down THIS BOOK is what you should grab when running to the door. Wave it in the faces of failure, which is another magic of waking us. -CAConrad, author of THE BOOK OF FRANK In Elizabeth J. Colen s Waiting Up for the End of the World, conspiracy theories provide the dark and obsessive scaffolding for poems woven with myths of paranoia as well as fragmented scenes of psychological tension. Colen transforms her sensational subjects with an eerie calm or giddy perversity, committed to juxtapositions and details that shiver with a grotesque luminosity: wig strands read a palm, coffee grounds in a mug form the shape of a skull, a brother staples a girl s arm to her sleeve. The duende who beckons from these poems is both pulsing alarm and violent seducer. In Colen s realm of danger, we ve followed the sound of the siren. -Anna Journey, author of If Birds Gather Your Hair for Nesting In Waiting Up for the End of the World: Conspiracies, Elizabeth Colen gives us a book of poems built around conspiracy tales, those guiding myths of our culture, a book so smart and quintessentially American it feels both uniquely personal and blazingly collective. Colen probes the nature of belief and gives us paranoia as resistance, storytelling as power, and the personal as inextricably tied to the social and political. I am eating this piece of cake./The first piece was for me, /the second for the end of the world, she writes in Day After, Over London, a poem that reimagines the crash of Pam Am Flight 103. The poems, stylistically flawless and each a jagged shard of the American dream, challenge us to rethink what we believe we know about the defining tales of our culture. -Suzanne Paola, author of Body Toxic and The Lives of the Saints.

About this Item: Chicago Review Press, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Born into a blue-collar family in the Jim Crow South, Herman J. Russell built a shoeshine business when he was twelve years old--and used the profits to buy a vacant lot where he built a duplex while he was still a teen. Over the next fifty years, he continued to build businesses, amassing one of the nation s most profitable minority-owned conglomerates. In Building Atlanta, Russell shares his inspiring life story and reveals how he overcame racism, poverty, and a debilitating speech impediment to become one of the most successful African American entrepreneurs, Atlanta civic leaders, and unsung heroes of the civil rights movement. Not just a typical rags-to-riches story, Russell achieved his success through focus, planning, and humility, and he shares his winning advice throughout. As a millionaire builder before the civil rights movement took hold and a friend of Dr. King, Ralph Abernathy, and Andrew Young, he quietly helped finance the civil rights crusade, putting up bond for protestors and providing the funds that kept King s dream alive. He provides a wonderful behind-the-scenes look at the role the business community, both black and white working together, played in Atlanta s peaceful progression from the capital of the racially divided Old South to the financial center of the New South.

About this Item: Pacific Raven Press, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Frank Marshall Davis: The Fire and the Phoenix (A Critical Biography) is a compelling historical biography about Frank Marshall Davis (1907-1987), journalist, editor, poet, labor activist, and Renaissance man of the Black Chicago Renaissance. He wrote expansively about social relations of his times and the failures of democracy, recorded his observations on race relations, African American culture and community, and critiqued economic disparities in the USA and imperialism in Hawaii. Kathryn Waddell Takara writes with an uncanny ability to dissect the humanity of Frank Marshall Davis and to explore the myths and legacy that Davis left to the world, applicable to the 21st century. Waddell Takara met, visited, befriended, and interviewed Davis in Hawaii during the last 15 years of his life. She felt a special affinity for and understanding of Davis due to certain shared situations: the Jim Crow South, poetry and politics, activism, and interracial marriage and life as an African American in Hawaii. Between the pages of this critical biography, Waddell Takara reveals Davis s efforts to establish connective marginalities between the black and white worlds, both conventional and nonconventional, in the first half of the 20th century. His personal aim to acquire power, status, and dignity like any white citizen and the methods he utilized were often unusual, unconventional, and challenging: journalism, editorials, poetry, music, American and African history, politics, and activism. Davis s aesthetic perceptions, sociopolitical analysis, and rigorous interpretive thought are valuable today in understanding (current issues). He documented the racial climate, the black psyche, identity issues, migrations of blacks to urban areas, struggles with poverty, lack of education and training, tattered dreams, sexual politics, and conflicts based on stereotypes alternately using lyricism and satire to educate, empower and push for social reform. His writings, especially his editorials, show how the black intellectual s voice has been forged in response to political and cultural movements as a confrontational force connecting the black and white worlds. Davis documents the geopolitics of race and class from Kansas to Hawaii. The Fire and the Phoenix highlights Davis s journey from where he was born, raised, and educated in Kansas to his professional work as a journalist and poet in Chicago, Gary, Atlanta, and finally the territory of Hawaii in 1948. Throughout his long life, Davis wrote about social, political and economic events and served as a witness and critic of racism, economic disparities, imperialism, and colonialism long before those concepts were part of the social science jargon and studies. Davis remained in Hawaii until he died in 1987. Seller Inventory # APC9780984122899

About this Item: Outskirts Press, United States, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This is a story of a girl who often dreamed, but of all her dreams, this one was special-to sing on a stage in the spotlight- a dream that filled her heart with hope and her days with striving. If you have a dream that lives deep in your heart, here is a story for you. Author Barbara D. Culp, Ed. D., has written and published several books. The Essence of Me in Poetry (Dorrance, 2006) and White Smoke Rhymes (self-published, 2007), both of which are books of poetry and are available at most bookstores. An Incredible Dream is her first attempt at a children s book. It was inspired while watching her granddaughter, Taylor Alexis Fox, stand in front of the mirror and imitate her favorite divas. To support her granddaughter s dream, she wrote this book for her and other young girls who idolize today s top singers. Dr. Culp has always been a writer, and now that she has retired from thirty-two years of devoted service to Atlanta s public schools, she is pursuing her love of writing full time. Dr. Culp received the International Society of Poets 2005 Outstanding Achievement in Poetry Award.

About this Item: iUniverse, United States, 2005. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.In 1996, Alexander Rumpkin was at the top of his game: he was CEO of America s largest health care organization. His ruthless trampling of people to get there is the story of The Sawdust Pile. Coming of age with two white cousins and a black kid in the segregated South, Alex had none of the tools commonly needed to climb to the top; but he succeeded beyond anyone s wildest dreams because he allowed nothing and no one to block his path. The Sawdust Pile is a riveting account of boys and the adults they became. Their contradictory relationships are developed with sensitivity and insight-a realistic portrayal of growing up on both sides of the color line in rural Georgia during the forties and fifties. Transitioning to the nineties and modern Atlanta, this story demonstrates with a vengeance that the boys-with all their faults and strengths-were truly fathers of the men. ****** A sophisticated critic says: This is a fast-paced story of boys becoming men and the lifelong consequences of youthful bonding and conflicts. Elements energizing the characters-competition, survival, domination, love, hatred, loyalty, betrayal, religion, sex, and family-are all in the mix, appearing early in this fascinating world and impacting all that follows. In a highly unusual first novel, the author delivers a bittersweet, provocative probe into the lives of men and women inhabiting The Sawdust Pile -evoking deep emotions, yet satisfying completely.

About this Item: Thomas Nelson on Brilliance Audio, 2017. CD-Audio. Condition: New. Unabridged. Language: English . Brand New. In a small Georgia town, lines are drawn and tensions mount. Can one woman stand in the divide and find truth in the face of hate? Adisa Johnson, a young African American attorney, is living her dream of practicing high-stakes law with a prestigious firm in downtown Atlanta. Then, a split-second mistake destroys the world she s created. Left with no options, she returns to her hometown so she can care for an aging aunt recovering from a stroke. Once there, Adisa is confronted with a much more brutal reality--a young unarmed black man has been shot by a white police officer and now lies comatose in the hospital. As a former assistant district attorney, Adisa is itching to jump into the fight as a special prosecutor. But she s being pulled in another direction by equally powerful forces urging her to do what she considers unthinkable--defend the officer. Tensions in the local community are at the boiling point with Adisa trapped in the middle. As the case unfolds, everyone must confront their own prejudices. For Adisa, it means seeking counsel from her Aunt Josie and charting her way through the labyrinth of a relationship with Rev. Reggie Reynolds, a charismatic young preacher and leader of the local movement seeking justice for the young man who was shot. For the police officer, it means confronting why he acted as he did. Some problems have no solution. Some people don t know where to look for answers. Some people are called to be lights in the darkness. Seller Inventory # AAS9781536693836
