Download or read book And Still I Rise written by Maya Angelou and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2013-04-04 with total page 112 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A beautiful and inspiring collection of poetry by Maya Angelou, author of I KNOW WHY THE CAGED BIRD SINGS and 'a brilliant writer, a fierce friend and a truly phenomenal woman' (BARACK OBAMA). 'I write about being a Black American woman, however, I am always talking about what it's like to be a human being. This is how we are, what makes us laugh, and this is how we fall and how we somehow, amazingly, stand up again' Maya Angelou Maya Angelou's poetry - lyrical and dramatic, exuberant and playful - speaks of love, longing, partings; of Saturday night partying, and the smells and sounds of Southern cities; of freedom and shattered dreams. 'Her poetry is just as much a part of her autobiography as I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings and the volumes that follow.' Kirkus 'It is true poetry she is writing . . . it has an innate purity about it, unquenchable dignity' M. F. K. Fisher
Download or read book And Still I Rise written by Doreen Lawrence and published by Faber & Faber. This book was released on 2011-11-17 with total page 246 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: ' This book for me is a warning as well as a reminder. May you never experience what I have experienced.' In April 1993, Stephen Lawrence was murdered by a group of young white men on a street in south-east London. From the first police investigation onwards, the case was badly mishandled. In the end, long after the case against the five suspects had been dropped, the government had to give in to mounting pressure and hold a public inquiry, which became the most explosive in British legal history. These facts leave the reader unprepared for Doreen Lawrence's own story of her son's murder. In this raw, honest book, she writes frankly about her childhood, about her struggle for a decent life for herself and her children and her hopes for her bright, motivated son. Her account of the murder and the botched and insensitive investigation by the Metropolitan Police is deeply moving. She recreates the pain, frustration and bafflement she experienced as she realised that there might never be a moment when she could say to herself that justice had been done. A cold case review led to the discovery of DNA evidence in 2009. In November 2011, two of the alleged members of the gang that killed Stephen were finally brought to trial at the Old Bailey. A guilty verdict was pronounced on 3 January 2012. 'To be put alongside Nelson Mandela's Long Walk to Freedom or the works of Maya Angelou.' Andrew Billen, The Times

Book excerpt: “An incredible book about the strength of women . . . an important book and a read that is nothing if not timely with current politics.” —FangirlNation A #1 Bestseller in 21st Century U.S. History for Teens Still I Rise takes its title from a work by Maya Angelou and it resonates with the same spirit of an unconquerable soul, a woman who is captain of her fate. It embodies the strength of character of the inspiring women profiled. Each chapter will outline the fall and rise of great women heroes who smashed all obstacles, rather than let all obstacles smash them. The book offers hope to those undergoing their own Sisyphean struggles. Intrepid women heroes are the antithesis of the traditional damsels in distress; rather than waiting for the prince, they took salvation into their own hands. Celebrate girl power! Women leaders in history celebrated in this book include: Madame C. J. Walker—first female American millionaireAung San Suu Kyi—Burma’s first lady of freedomBetty Shabazz—civil rights activistNellie Sachs—Holocaust survivor and Nobel Prize recipientSelma Lagerlof—first woman Nobel LaureateFannie Lou Hamer—American voting rights activistBessie Coleman—first African-American female pilotWilma Rudolph—first woman to win three gold medalsSonia Sotomayor—first Hispanic Supreme Court justiceWangari Maathai—Nobel Prize winnerWinnifred Mandela—freedom fighterLois Wilson—founder of Al-AnonRoxanne Quimby—cofounder of Burt’s Bees “Inspirational . . .

Download or read book Word and Soul written by Michael Willett Newheart and published by Liturgical Press. This book was released on 2001 with total page 198 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This "soul reading" of the Gospel is influenced by three elements: analytical/archetypal psychology, which reorients psychology to "the study of the soul"; African-American cultural experience, which is often characterized as "soul"; and reader-response criticism, which emphasizes that the reading of a text is shaped by the reader's psychological and social location. After a brief methological discussion, portions of the Fourth Gospel are read "soulfully.""--BOOK JACKET.

Just like Tomika, I started out writing poetry at a young agearound twelveand it was when I turned thirteen when my first song was written. Writing songs was not something I set out to do and was due to my mothers disciplinary actions, where it all began. My mother would beat me repeatedly till one day, hitting me would no longer break me down, and I physically acquired a numbness to her lashes on my flesh.

Download or read book 1997 written by Richard Power Sayeed and published by Zed Books Ltd.. This book was released on 2017-10-16 with total page 339 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: 'Beautifully written, brilliantly insightful' Owen Jones Tony Blair and Noel Gallagher shaking hands at No. 10. Saatchi’s YBAs setting the international art world aflame. Geri Halliwell in a Union Jack dress. A time of vibrancy and optimism: when the country was united by the hope of a better and brighter future. So why, twenty years on, did that future never happen? Richard Power Sayeed takes a provocative look at this epochal year, arguing that the dark undercurrents of that time had a much more enduring legacy than the marketing gimmick of ‘Cool Britannia’. He reveals how the handling of the Stephen Lawrence inquiry ushered in a new type of racism. How the feminism-lite of 'Girl Power' made sexism stronger. And how the promises of New Labour left the country more fractured than ever. This lively, rich and evocative book explores why 1997 was a turning point for British culture and society - away from a fairer, brighter future and on the path to our current malaise.
