Natasha D. TretheweyNatasha D. Trethewey

Natasha D. Trethewey is an English professor at Emory University in Atlanta, won the Pulitzer Prize in poetry in 2007. Her works forge a rich intersection between the historical and autobiographical.

The daughter of a black mother and a white father, Trethewey grew up in a South still segregated by custom, if not by law, and her life astride the color line has inspired her recovery of lost histories, public and private.

spacer An inconvient friend An Inconvenient Friend by Rhonda McKnight

Themes of forgiveness, redemption and truth make this story line an inspirational tale of two women both locked in pain and sadness. The author shows the realities of a struggling Christian marriage when two people are unequally yoked. I cried with Angelina. I wanted so much more for Samaria and I even understood Greg's struggles. This book will take the reader in many different emotional places on the outside looking in.

Although a sequel; this novel stands alone as a testimony to the inner good in most people who are striving to find God in their lives. It was an all-night read!

spacer create dangerously Create Dangerously: The Immigrant Artist at Work by Edwidge Danticat

["Art for art's sake"] Has this attitude been widely-embraced or might it merely reflect the values of members of a leisure class able to ignore pressing issues of survival faced by the bulk of humanity? The question is legit, for flying in the face of that bourgeois aesthetic is Edwidge Danticat, an iconoclast who sees addressing the prevailing political and social questions of the day as a pivotal part of her calling.

A 2009 winner of a MacArthur Genius Fellowship, Ms. Danticat’s contrary approach ostensibly emanates from the fact that she was born in Haiti and had to spend her formative years under the thumb of the ruthlessly repressive Papa and Baby Doc Duvalier regimes. And in Create Dangerously, a collection of essays based on a series of lectures delivered at Princeton University, the American immigrant tackles a variety of universal themes apt to resonate with anyone reflecting about the oppression they left behind in coming to the United States in search of fundamental freedoms, particularly Freedom of Speech.


Why do i have to think like a man Why Do I Have To Think Like A Man? How To Think Like A Lady And Still Get The Man by Shanae Hall with Rhonda Frost

Faithful readers are well aware of how exasperated this critic has become about the recent flood of relationship advice books aimed at the African-American demographic. The latest contribution to the burgeoning genre is this how-to tome written from the female perspective by a couple of cutie pies who have a bone or two to pick with comedian Steve Harvey’s best seller on the subject.

The authors claim to be your average females, but that’s just not the case, judging from their photos (Va-va-va-voom!) and the fact that one of them, Shanae Hall, was once married to an NFL star. Furthermore, these divorcees don’t claim to have any professional credentials, rather merely a lifetime of experience in the battle-of-the-sexes.


the warth of other suns The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration by Isabel Wilkerson

What was most compelling and depressing about this documentary was how hated Blacks were both by their southern oppressors and the working class northerners who viewed them as a threat to their status. What was inspiring was how these pioneers persevered, kept on pushing, their eyes on the proverbial prize, as they drew from the inner strength that 400 years of degradation couldn’t kill.

I can’t say enough about the skills and artistry of the author a young black woman from Washington DC, whose parents were migrants from the south. As dense as this book was, it was a “painless” read with its seamless narrative and characters that came to life. The only problem I had was how she made no mention of the black migrants who after coming north, left the metropolises to settle in their suburbs. My parents moved from Chicago in 1922, becoming members of the black colonies who occupied their own little sections of the villages and towns that ringed the big cities, removed from the hazards of urban life, leading less stressful existences. This once again reminded me of how the black experience varies, and how mine is not that typical.


the grace of silence The Grace of Silence: A Memoir by Michele Norris

Quite surprisingly, it turns out that her heartbreaking memoir moved me to tears, as she wistfully recounts her family’s quiet, dignified way of dealing with racism and discrimination. Whether it was her parents having to witness a mass exodus of their neighbors via white flight after integrating a neighborhood in Minnesota in the early Sixties or, decades later, her father Belvin’s being teased for being drunk when he was actually suffering from a malignant brain tumor during the last days of his life, Michele describes lives painfully limited in certain respects by the color line.

She further recalls a litany of humiliations endured by relatives before she was born, such as her maternal grandmother who was employed by Quaker Oats to travel around the country dressed as Aunt Jemima in bandana and apron to give pancake cooking demonstrations at State Fairs and the like. Particularly poignant is the painstaking lengths she goes to resurrect the besmirched name of her father long after being falsely accused of a crime.


jimi Jimi: Sounds Like a Rainbow: A Story of the Young Jimi Hendrix by Gary Golio

Jimi Hendrix (1942-1970) was a flamboyant rock icon who flamed out instead of fading away due to his also being a substance abuser who dabbled in everything from alcohol to marijuana to amphetamines to hashish to heroin to LSD before succumbing at the tender age of 27 to a combination of red wine and sleeping pills. Ostensibly enough time has elapsed since his passing that Hendrix can now serve as a role model to children, at least in terms of overcoming childhood adversity, exploring one’s creativity and, of course, making beautiful music.

Thus, he is appropriately the subject of Jimi: Sounds Like a Rainbow, an autobiography designed for 4th though 8th graders which focuses primarily on the legendary guitarist’s formative years spent growing up and exploring in Seattle. Faithful factually to what actually transpired in Jimi’s life, the book touches on such significant milestones as his acquiring his first ukulele, guitar and, later, electric guitar.


say it loud Say It Loud! Great Speeches on Civil Rights and African-American Identity Edited by Catherine Ellis and Stephen Drury Smith

Five years ago, Catherine Ellis and Stephen Drury Smith published an anthology comprised of many of the greatest civil rights speeches delivered by African-American leaders in the 20th Century [Say It Plain: Live Recordings of the 20th Century's Great African-American Speeches: A Book-and-CD Set], including classic orations by Dr. Martin Luther King, Stokely Carmichael, Thurgood Marshall, Minister Louis Farrakhan, Julian Bond and Fannie Lou Hamer, to name a few. Now, the authors are publishing book number two, but the question becomes, what do you do for an encore when you've already used up a lot of the best stuff?

Well, it looks like maybe you look over to the right, politically, and add to the mix addresses by some relatively-conservative black folks to feature next to the usual suspects such as Dr. King, Malcolm X, Roy Wilkins, Bobby Seale and Angela Davis. What does it mean when alongside these firebrands we find the words of Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice and Ward Connerly, who built his career by appealing not to fellow African-Americans but to right-wing white zealots?


white house diary White House Diary by President Jimmy Carter by President Jimmy Carter

And thanks to a tip from President Nixon who made the suggestion the first time they met, Carter decided to start keeping a journal while he was in office. If you remember, Jimmy had a certain, down-home folksy charm which had endeared him to the electorate, and that same tone is reflected in White House Diary, a 600-page opus condensed from what was originally over 5,000-pages in length.

The former president augmented the chronologically-arranged text with a sprinkling of present-day commentary where necessary to help elucidate the material. Basically, the book offers both a broad look at the scope of the Chief Executive’s exhausting daily schedule as well as an intimate peek inside the workings of the man’s mind.


extraodinary peopleExtraordinary, Ordinary People: A Memoir of Family by Condoleezza Rice

Given all that Condoleezza Rice went on to accomplish in life, it’s hard to believe that she was born in Birmingham, Alabama in the fifties during the repressive reign of Jim Crow segregation. But somehow, despite spending her formative years in a city where state-sanctioned discrimination served to frustrate the aspirations of most other African-Americans, she miraculously managed to overachieve with the help of doting parents blessed with the sense to recognize their gifted daughter’s great potential and to nourish her dreams the best they could.

The former secretary of State pays tribute to that herculean effort in “Extraordinary, Ordinary People,” a remarkably-revealing memoir by a very private, public figure who has to this juncture in life played her cards pretty close to the vest. But you had a sense something might be up when she recently played piano behind Aretha at a concert in Philadelphia. And after reading this intimate autobiography it’s clear that underneath that seemingly-steely veneer beats the heart is an introspective sister who’s yearning to recognize her roots.

waiting for superman Waiting for Superman - Scathing Expose’ Chronicles Failings of Public Educational System

Every other month or so, another new documentary illustrates how America’s public schools are failing its inner-city students. Already this year, we’ve seen several scathing indictments of the educational system, from The Cartel to The Lottery to The Providence Effect to Race to Nowhere.

Now we have Waiting for Superman, which just might be the best of the genre’s bumper crop. The film was directed by Academy Award-winner Davis Guggenheim (for An Inconvenient Truth), a man who shows a knack here for weaving ordinarily-bland statistics and bureaucrat-speak into a riveting drama replete with empathetic victims, altruistic heroes and a maniacal, power-hungry villain.


Lagacy Legacy - Starring Idris Elba

It is to the film's benefit that it defies detailed description, for the sense of ominous uncertainty and gradually unfolding discovery more closely places the viewer in the position of that "one man" in that "one room," Malcolm Gray (Idris Elba). A soldier in a Black Ops squad, he holes up in a run-down Brooklyn hotel room to try to make sense of a recent, disastrous operation that has left him battered and scarred--in ways far beyond the literal, and, as becomes apparent, for long before that fateful mission. The film opens with a taste of those events that day in Eastern Europe, and this pre-title sequence sets the stage for what follows in the next 90 minutes--not just in terms of plot and general tone but also the storytelling. As a tense stand-off erupts into violence, Ikimi gets right what so many filmmakers do not in their depictions of visceral chaos: while there are the appropriately disorienting quick edits and such, the stylish technique does not come at the expense of general coherence.

That carries over to the entirety of Legacy, as Ikimi efficiently balances and intertwines style and content to the degree that they are one and the same, hence making an inherently and willfully enigmatic scenario accessible and engrossing.


GhettoPhysics GhettoPhysics: Will the Real Pimps and Hos Please Stand Up! - Radical Fringe Flick Breaks World Down to Pimp and Hos

The thrust of this incendiary expose’ is that “Capitalism is the biggest pimp game” around, judging by how “President Bush was Dick Cheney’s bitch” who invaded Iraq at the direction of the Vice President, a war profiteer determined to filled the coffers of his former firm Halliburton. Frankly, although director Brown’s thought-provoking thesis is initially intriguing, this critic eventually found his dog-eat-dog deconstruction of the planet to be frankly a little depressing,

Professor West stood out in my estimation for sounding a rare note of optimism in the midst of a seemingly ubiquitous, omni-permeating symphony of despair when he stated that the need is to “transform the gangsta orientation to a more compassionate and decent one.” His thinking contrasted sharply with the conventional wisdom generally propagated here that, “You get played and pimped if you’re naïve.”

cnnprogCNN's shallow program on debt indirectly shows ineffectiveness of the Black Church


Despite Kam's 4 star rating I did not think I would find very much appealing about CNN's latest special on "Black America". Any viewer expecting to learn anything about debt: how and why people get into it, why they stay in debt or how one might get out of it would be sorely disappointed.

The program was really a very shallow and painfully drawn out expose of a married couple about to lose their home, a 58 year old guy unable to find employment and an impoverished teenager trying to get into and raise money for college.

The married couple apparently had not paid their mortgage in 26 months. The family was shown driving BMW SUV, the home was nicely furnished; everyone seemed to be well groomed with nice clothing – all the visual trappings of success. However no one asked the simple question – why did you not make a single mortgage payment for the last two years?!

Ngugi wa Thiong'o. Photograph: University Of California/EPAWhy Ngugi wa Thiong'o should have won the Nobel prize for literature

Yesterday Ngugi wa Thiong'o didn't win the Nobel prize. A few days earlier he'd become the bookies' favourite when the odds on his being awarded literature's highest accolade fell from 75-1 to 3-1. But at midday on 7 October, Mario Vargas Llosa was announced as this year's laureate for "his cartography of structures of power and his trenchant images of the individual's resistance, revolt and defeat".

It's easy to see how the confusion might have arisen. Ngugi has dedicated his life to describing, satirising and destabilising the corridors of power. As I sat mentally congratulating the Peruvian novelist I began to wonder what it would have meant for those of us working in the field of African literature if yesterday's announcement had taken a different turn ... by Zoe Norridge Friday 8 October 2010 10.48 BST guardian.co.uk


VS NaipaulAt 78, author V.S. Naipaul's traveling days are over

The Nobel Laureate has wandered the world for over 50 years, chronicling the views and faiths of ordinary people in more than 30 works of fiction and nonfiction; but now, asthmatic and unsteady on his feet, it is time to stop.

His latest book on African beliefs and religion, "The Masque of Africa," is likely the last leg of a journey that has taken him from his native Trinidad to England and later to India, Iran, Malaysia and many other places.

"I am too old to do another book of this type. It was a great strain," Naipaul told Reuters in New York.
