Book Description :

Reveals a remarkable woman’s life and her contributions to social justice movements related to Civil Rights, feminism, lesbian and gay liberation, anti-racism, and Black feminism. As an organizer, writer, publisher, scholar-activist, and elected official, Barbara Smith has played key roles in multiple social justice movements, including Civil Rights, feminism, lesbian and gay liberation, anti-racism, and Black feminism. Her four decades of grassroots activism forged collaborations that introduced the idea that oppression must be fought on a variety of fronts simultaneously, including gender, race, class, and sexuality. By combining hard-to-find historical documents with new unpublished interviews with fellow activists, this book uncovers the deep roots of today’s “identity politics” and “intersectionality” and serves as an essential primer for practicing solidarity and resistance. “Barbara Smith is a creator of modern feminism as a writer, organizer, editor, publisher, and scholar. Now she has added to her decades as an activist outside the system by becoming an elected official who truly listens, represents, and creates bridges to a common good. She has shown us that democracy is a seed that can only be planted where we are.” — Gloria Steinem “Barbara Smith is one of the grand pioneering and prophetic voices of our time. Her truth still hurts and heals!” — Cornel West “Ain’t Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around is not a memoir, a biography, nor a reader. It is a reflection and a conversation. It is also a montage of forty years of documents, interviews, and articles that provide useful lessons for social justice work. This book is a tour de force that documents the life’s work of Barbara Smith and the freedom struggles she shaped.” — Duchess Harris, author of Black Feminist Politics from Kennedy to Obama

Book Description :

"Thou, Dear God" is the first and only collection of sixty-eight prayers by Martin Luther King, Jr. Arranged thematically in six parts--with prayers for spiritual guidance, special occasions, times of adversity, times of trial, uncertain times, and social justice--Baptist minister and King scholar Lewis Baldwin introduces the book and each section with short essays. Included are both personal and public prayers King recited as a seminarian, graduate student, preacher, pastor, and, finally, civil rights leader, along with a special section that reveals the biblical sources that most inspired King. Collectively they illustrate how King turned to private prayer for his own spiritual fulfillment and to public prayer as a way to move, inspire, and reaffirm a quest for peace and social justice. With a foreword by Rev. Dr. Julius R. Scruggs, it is the perfect gift for people and leaders of all faiths, and an invaluable resource for spiritual individuals and those who lead worship.

WINNER: The 2018 McGannon Center Book Prize and shortlisted for the Goddard Riverside Stephan Russo Book Prize for Social Justice The New York Times Book Review: "Riveting." Naomi Klein: "This book is downright scary." Ethan Zuckerman, MIT: "Should be required reading." Dorothy Roberts, author of Killing the Black Body: "A must-read." Astra Taylor, author of The People's Platform: "The single most important book about technology you will read this year." Cory Doctorow: "Indispensable." A powerful investigative look at data-based discrimination—and how technology affects civil and human rights and economic equity The State of Indiana denies one million applications for healthcare, foodstamps and cash benefits in three years—because a new computer system interprets any mistake as “failure to cooperate.” In Los Angeles, an algorithm calculates the comparative vulnerability of tens of thousands of homeless people in order to prioritize them for an inadequate pool of housing resources. In Pittsburgh, a child welfare agency uses a statistical model to try to predict which children might be future victims of abuse or neglect. Since the dawn of the digital age, decision-making in finance, employment, politics, health and human services has undergone revolutionary change. Today, automated systems—rather than humans—control which neighborhoods get policed, which families attain needed resources, and who is investigated for fraud. While we all live under this new regime of data, the most invasive and punitive systems are aimed at the poor. In Automating Inequality, Virginia Eubanks systematically investigates the impacts of data mining, policy algorithms, and predictive risk models on poor and working-class people in America. The book is full of heart-wrenching and eye-opening stories, from a woman in Indiana whose benefits are literally cut off as she lays dying to a family in Pennsylvania in daily fear of losing their daughter because they fit a certain statistical profile. The U.S. has always used its most cutting-edge science and technology to contain, investigate, discipline and punish the destitute. Like the county poorhouse and scientific charity before them, digital tracking and automated decision-making hide poverty from the middle-class public and give the nation the ethical distance it needs to make inhumane choices: which families get food and which starve, who has housing and who remains homeless, and which families are broken up by the state. In the process, they weaken democracy and betray our most cherished national values. This deeply researched and passionate book could not be more timely.

Book Description :

Provides a contemporary response to such landmark volumes as All the Women Are White, All the Blacks Are Men, But Some of Us Are Brave and This Bridge Called My Back. More than thirty years have passed since the publication of All the Women Are White, All the Blacks Are Men, But Some of Us Are Brave. Given the growth of women’s and gender studies in the last thirty-plus years, this updated and responsive collection expands upon this transformation of consciousness through multiracial feminist perspectives. The contributors here reflect on transnational issues as diverse as intimate partner violence, the prison industrial complex, social media, inclusive pedagogies, transgender identities, and (post) digital futures. This volume provides scholars, activists, and students with critical tools that can help them decenter whiteness and other power structures while repositioning marginalized groups at the center of analysis. “Are All the Women Still White? blends traditions of feminist-of-color struggle with the innovative insights of twenty-first-century thinkers, artists, and activists. For anyone engaged in inclusive, multi-issued work, this book is indispensable.” — Barbara Smith, Ain’t Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around: Forty Years of Movement Building with Barbara Smith

Book Description :

Taste the salt spray. Watch the green water swirling down your leeward deck. Hear the cries of seabirds skimming wave tops thousands of miles from land. To dip into the pages of "The Hal Roth Seafaring Trilogy" is to throw open the doors and windows of your imagination on a vast, wild seascape, where any adventure is possible. Hal Roth is the Homer of our generation, a wandering storyteller who for years has sailed distant oceans in small boats. The tales he brings back are all the more incredible because they are true, and three of his all-time classics are gathered here, for the first time, between one set of covers. A journalist before he was a voyager, Roth combines a journalist's powers of observation and flinty realism with the poetic insights of a long-distance sailor and a graceful phrasing all his own. His utterly distinctive voice can be confused with no other nautical storyteller. He hides vast stores of seagoing knowledge in simple descriptions. Sailors are advised to read each story twice: first for the pleasure of a great adventure, then for a wealth of insights on overcoming adversity at sea. In "Two on a Big Ocean," we accompany Hal and his wife, Margaret, on their first major sea trek from San Francisco to Japan by way of the South Pacific islands, and back via the Aleutians, Alaska, and Canada. Hal's flowing narrative and vivid photographs reveal the many ways in which this dream passage became a voyage of discovery. The two sailors learned to cope with everything from equipping their 35-foot sloop "Whisper" for a voyage of nineteen months to the perils of scalpel-sharp coral reefs and opaque fog. Roth's gritty, authentic narrative underscores his singular ability to explore the quintessential aspects of the human condition as revealed in a small boat at sea. Not content with surviving and thriving through 19,000 unpredictable miles at sea, Hal and Margaret decided to test their mettle against the most daunting stretch of water any sailor can face. "Two Against Cape Horn" tells two stories: a delightful tale of the couple's pioneering cruise down the Chilean coast, followed by a harrowing account of turmoil, shipwreck, and recovery in savage, storm-tossed seas. In "The Longest Race," Hal delivers a taut, crisply written account of the greatest sea adventure ever undertaken: the first solo, nonstop race around the world in small sailboats. Of the nine men who undertook the challenge, only one would finish; all the others would drop out--or worse. Drawing from the sailors' firsthand accounts and his own understanding gained as a contestant in two later round-the-world solo races, Hal zeroes in on the essence of this competition: the ability to withstand a barrage of physical, mental, and emotional rigors over hundreds of days alone at sea. Here are three classic tales of crossing huge oceans in small boats, three irresistible invitations to escape a winter night or a fogbound anchorage for the wild heart of a distant sea. Hal Roth and his wife, Margaret, have crossed all of the world's oceans and sailed to a thousand foreign ports. Hal has also raced twice around the world single-handed in the BOC Challenges of 1986-87 and 1990-91. A magazine writer and photographer (over 400 articles), Hal has written eight books about his adventures and two how-to books, including "How to Sail Around the World," also available from International Marine. Big adventures on the high seas--from one of the greatest seafaring writers of our age Hal Roth's vivid, authentic tales of the sea have riveted readers around the world for forty years. Here, in one volume, are three of his classic sea stories, each one a white-knuckled, rail-down voyage into the unknown. A hard-working San Francisco husband and wife abandon their jobs, their security, and, some would say, their sanity to sail their 35-foot sloop to Japan and back--the long way! Over the next nineteen months, they discover exotic islands, fascinating people, and a whole new way of life. A few years later these intrepid voyagers decide to try their luck against Cape Horn, but they will need a lot more than luck to survive the vicious storms, violent seas, and perilous shores of the world's most dangerous stretch of water. Then nine courageous sailors accept a challenge to do what has never been done before: to race alone, in a small sailboat, around the world--nonstop. Only one will complete the race; seven will be forced to withdraw, and one will simply disappear. "Roth writes with grace, humor, and poetic insight about the vastness and beauty of the ocean."--"Library Journal" "By all means read all of Hal Roth you can find."--"Practical Sailor" "Roth's books about his life at sea, including "Two on a Big Ocean" and "Two Against Cape Horn," are universally listed among the most influential sailing books ever published."--"SpinSheet" "Roth can charm you out of your armchair."--"Kirkus"

Book Description :

Randal Peyton Purcell can't guess what's coming when his doorbell rings one quiet Sunday in New York. The ringing interrupts his life of arrogant, self-satisfaction, of what he sees as his effortless superiority. His is an indifference to the weak and downtrodden. What he lets in at the doorbell is a spirit that becomes a stray dog of mythical wickedness. This is I DOG or 'Johann Sebastian Bark,' as Randy's German landlord and landlady name him. Johann is not only beyond description, his incessant barking destroys the peace and harmony of Randy's home. From there on, he stumbles through the wreckage into the secrets of elderly Nazis and to murder most foul. In this satiric novel, Randy's descent through the rings of hell brings him into the clutches of a nymphomaniac Korean Princess, to being kidnapped by a psychopathic teenage robber who endlessly haunts the Interstate but cannot drive. Finally, a Jew from Brooklyn who is convinced he's black, catches him up. Randy must survive a nightmarish theme park, a cataclysmic gun battle and an apocalyptic inferno before he can make a frantic dash to freedom through the Okefeenokee swamp. Irreverent, humorous and sarcastic, I Dog forces Randy to change his inner vision. He must shed his snakeskin of privilege and haughtiness before he can find a humble salvation. I DOG is comic on virtually everything. While It may offend, it is with good humor. On its serious side, I DOG gives numerous considerations on our communal 'how' and 'why' – and particularly mocks our belief that we are good enough to be made in God's likeness. I DOG says not so, but rather that we come in the image of our canine brethren. We jump through hoops and wear circus ruffs. One way or another all of us are dogs. I DOG.
