Black feminists remind us “that America’s destiny is inseparable from how it treats [black women] and the nation ignores this truth at its peril” (The New York Review of Books). Winner of the 2018 Lambda Literary Award for LGBTQ Nonfiction “If Black women were free, it would mean that everyone else would have to be free.” —Combahee River Collective Statement The Combahee River Collective, a path-breaking group of radical black feminists, was one of the most important organizations to develop out of the antiracist and women’s liberation movements of the 1960s and 70s. In this collection of essays and interviews edited by activist-scholar Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, founding members of the organization and contemporary activists reflect on the legacy of its contributions to Black feminism and its impact on today’s struggles. “A striking collection that should be immediately added to the Black feminist canon.” —Bitch Media “An essential book for any feminist library.” —Library Journal “As white feminism has gained an increasing amount of coverage, there are still questions as to how black and brown women’s needs are being addressed. This book, through a collection of interviews with prominent black feminists, provides some answers.” —The Independent “For feminists of all kinds, astute scholars, or anyone with a passion for social justice, How We Get Free is an invaluable work.” —Ethnic and Racial Studies Journal

This handbook for young African Americans is intended to give them a feeling of self-worth by chronicling many of the contributions of African Americans to American history and to the American way of life in an easy-to-read format. The history of blacks in America has been badly distorted by the motion picture industry and textbooks. Newspapers generally print most of the bad news about blacks and often under-report positive news. This negative information adds to the anger that many young blacks harbor due to their economic plight, and feeds the feeling of hopelessness that they perceive as their future. This book lets them know that they deserve more, based upon their forefathersÕ contributions to America in war and peace and their inherent ability. It then attempts to guide them into a better economic way of life through understandable steps that are attainable. It stresses education as a basic tool for advancement as well as a reparations goal. It then goes through economic steps that can start to decrease the un-American economic gap that should not exist. Its main theme is that they are the progeny of forefathers who have accomplished a great deal, and they owe it to their forefathers to live up to that heritage.

Environmental collapse, I hold, is going to be the result of our present collective attitudes. Regardless of what we believe, only when humanity gets an accurate model of reality can we have a sustainable future. We Don't Get It! uses a collection of short essays that get to the heart of this major dilemma. My purpose in writing this book is to clarify some of the most compelling reasons for protecting our environment and to challenge some of our deepest assumptions about our way of life and its effect on our environment in a way that most authors on this subject have not. The intended audience for this book is the public as well as both the politicians and the scientists responsible for environmental policy. It is a thoughtful examination of our wholesale relationship to our environment and our seeming lack of respect for its absolute primacy. Designed to be easily read piecemeal by both the professional and the public, I believe this book, by its unique and frank approach, will appeal to any one who cares about our future.

People of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning. Those words come from Henry Ford, and they are truer today than ever. Banks continue to purchase assets with other peoples money, which contributed to the global debt crisis that devastated so many individuals and families. Jason Goodwin, a lifelong student of the economy, outlines how the banking and monetary system work in this book that not only informs but will make you downright angry. He focuses on topics such as countries like Greece that are hamstrung by massive debt, causes of the global debt crisis, and economic policies that make it difficult for households to pay their bills and get ahead in life. He also examines how banks become investors when companies offer shares to the public via initial public offerings. Banks use other peoples money to become the largest investors of these companies, which can cause massive socio-economic problems. Get truthful answers on why the world is suffering a debt crisis along with practical solutions to solve the problem with this insightful overview of the global economy.

What the critics are saying about Just Wait Until We Get Home: "It looks like a really great book judging it by its cover. I haven't actually read it yet, but I hope to soon." -Boston Accent & Times Tribune "A subtle murder mystery with deep, complex characters and an interesting, involved subplot make this story a real suspense-filled page turner or no, wait, hold the line a second, that's a different book entirely. Uhm, I believe we have some sort of mix up here. Sorry about that. Never mind!" -Southern Drawl & Globe Gazette "The book Just Wait Until We Get Home! is an abomination. It is in no way representative of the people of the great Midwest, the heartland of our country. We are not all vandals and criminals. I think Tristram Hoosier should get a day job." -Midwestern Twang & Town Crier In Tristram Hoosier's second book about his family and growing up in Gary, Indiana, a neighbor's garage burns down, a grandmother reminisces about how Tristram's great-grandfather was arrested during Prohibition, an aunt makes a drug bust, a neighbor kid builds a real, working cannon in metal shop and a church bake sale turns into a disaster. Just Wait Until We Get Home! clearly illustrates that it's never too early to start procrastinating.

This book explores how after 20 years of existence, virtual world games have evolved: the social landscapes within digital worlds have become rigid and commodified, and "play" and "fun" have become rational and mechanical products. • Explains how social rigidity in digital communities often robs these spaces of experimentation and identity play • Suggests that new technologies such as virtual reality are unlikely to revolutionize the media or cause dramatic social change
We feel free not because we are unconstrained, nor because we have something called 'free-will'. We feel free because we can learn what is going on, and can locate ourselves in that account, as able to do something about it.

As a wife and mother of five, I know all too well how destructive building a façade that everything is fine can be. Tearing down this wall and letting people see the real me—the pain, the struggles, the tears, and the triumphs has been difficult but rewarding. Get REAL: Stop Hiding Behind the Mask examines how to do just that. It delves into discovering a person’s true identity, centered on God’s view of each of us, letting go of the insecurities that so easily entangle our lives and finally, living with eternal perspective—keeping our focus heavenward instead of inward.

Author: Bob Greene
In a dazzling and exhilarating display of narrative on-the-road reporting, award-winning journalist and New York Times bestselling author Bob Greene takes readers on an unforgettable American journey of music, memories, and universal longing. Running away to join the circus is a dream we're told to put away once we're no longer young. But, as Bob Greene writes, "just when in our lives we give up on capturing the freedom and bright mornings of our world when it was new, sometimes something happens to keep the sun high in the sky a while longer. Sometimes we find something we weren't even aware we were looking for." For fifteen years beginning in the 1990s, Greene stepped into a universe that, out in the country every summer night, is hiding in plain sight: the touring world of the great early rock bands who gave America the car-radio and jukebox music it still loves best. Singing backup with the legendary Jan and Dean as they endlessly crisscross the nation, Greene takes us to football stadiums and minor-league ballparks, to no-name ice cream stands and midnight diners, to back roads and carnival midways as he tells a riveting story of great fame and lingering sorrow, of unexpected friendship and lasting dreams, of the things that keep us going in the face of all the things that threaten to stop us. Striking chords of recognition and yearning, When We Get to Surf City glistens with cameos by the men and women with whom Greene traveled the United States on his deliriously unlikely journey, including Chuck Berry, Martha and the Vandellas, the Everly Brothers, Jerry Lee Lewis, the Beach Boys, the Monkees, the Kingsmen, James Brown, Lesley Gore, the Drifters, Little Eva, and the Coasters. All of them—not just the people on the stage, but the people in the audiences, too—are seeking their private versions of the mythical destination Jan and Dean came up with all those years ago: Surf City as the perfect, cloudless place we all believe is out there, if only we can find it. Hilarious and heartbreaking, moving and brilliant, this is the trip of a lifetime, a travelogue of the heart, accompanied by a thundering guitar chorus of Fender Stratocasters. It is a story destined to touch readers not just today, but for generations to come, as long as the music itself echoes.

We deserve better. We are all denying a legacy that awaits. The human goals are varied and tattered by so many failures. A more distant vision therefore is needed to survey the greater options that are available to us. First and foremost we must look at who we are in essence and take directions from those who are better equipped, better advised, and better qualified to lead us on to a more perfect environment; one that cannot be spoiled by folly.
As we realize we are not alone in our struggle, negative feelings begin to decrease; some positive feelings for the offender may become possible. We begin to feel free. It is easy to get stuck. Anger and resentment keep coming back.
