Frank Manchel EVERY STEP A STRUGGLE. Interviews with Seven Who Shaped the African-American Image in Movies

This book pays tribute to the sacrifices and achievements of seven individuals who made difficult and controversial choices to insure that black Americans shared in the evolution of the nation's cultural heritage. Transcriptions and analyses of never-before published uncensored conversations with Lorenzo Tucker, Lillian Gish, King Vidor, Clarence Muse, Woody Strode, Charles Gordone, and Frederick Douglass O'Neal reveal many of the reasons and rationalizations behind a racist screen imagery in the first three-quarters of the twentieth century. This primary source, replete with pictures, documentation, and extensive annotations, recounts through the words of important participants what happened to many film pioneers when a new generation of African-Americans rebelled against the nation's stereotyped film imagery. "A unique historical resource, this book is a fitting tribute to these artists, reminding us of their courage, integrity, and perseverance to succeed against great odds. The thorough, meticulous annotations make it an indispensable addition to collections in film studies and African American studies." -Denise Youngblood, Professor of History,University of Vermont."The author has taken a unique approach and may have even created a new genre of writing: the interview embellished with scholarly commentary. It is a fascinating experiment. . . This book belongs in every research library and in all public libraries from mid-size to large cities. It fi...

The Future of Evaluation in Society. A Tribute to Michael Scriven

The impetus for this volume lives in a rich and vibrant past. It is organized to honor one of thefounders and most prolific contributors to the professional and transdiscipline of evaluation --Professor Michael Scriven, and to illuminate the future of evaluation in society. Professor Scrivenoften shares stories of his meetings with Albert Einsten and the frame-breaking evaluation revolutionhe has led against the value free doctrine of the social sciences. Both his wide eyed graduatestudents and the more grizzled evaluation veterans in his professional development workshopsquickly learn that Scriven is well traveled and has exchanged some of the boldest ideas and visions with the most brilliant thinkers ofhis time. Scriven insisted that the 2011 Stauffer Symposium and this volume be organized in that genre. He urged us to invite the mostthoughtful and influential evaluation theorists and practitioners we could find to join him in a conversation about the future of evaluationin society.Scriven challenges us to examine the five great paradigm shifts that have revolutionized the foundations of evaluation, and that hebelieves will form the basis for a much brighter future for evaluation in society. Scriven's revolutionary ideas are followed and challengedby a group of thought leaders in evaluation who do not necessarily shared his views on evaluation, but who have earned hisdeepest respect and whose evaluation work he admires including Michael Quinn Patton, Ernest House, Danie...

Atif Mohammad Programming Languages; 21st Century Milestones

Programming languages are being taught and studied for more than 30 years in the graduate seminar on Programming Language Design. Students have studied the structure and design of programming languages from a human and linguistic perspective. Beginning at the University of Toronto in the mid-70's, this course has continued to interest generations of graduate students in computing at Queen's University since 1986. Every year, students study Wegner's "Milestones in the History of Programming Languages" to set the tone and foundation of the course, and propose their own more recent milestones to follow on Wegner's list. This document contains the "Milestones and comparisons" of more recent languages chosen by the class of 2008. This book is authored and edited by members of the class of fall semester 2008 at Queen's University, under wise guidance and teaching of Prof. Dr. Jim Cordy. It reviews a number of modern programming languages using the same timeless criteria outlined by Weinberg in 1971, based on human psychology and the linguistics of natural languages.

The breadth and depth of these essays are a fitting testimony to the personal and professional interests of James W. Voelz. They span a spectrum from Greek language and lexicography to hermeneutics and translation theory to interpretation and theology of both biblical testaments to contemporary issues in church and world. Leading scholars with a diversity of interests and in diverse contexts offer a buffet of both general and focused issues from detailed translation theory and method to the World Series as a template for theological reflection, from creeds and confessions to cultural and social hermeneutics. Readers will find much that will strengthen and challenge their study of theology and the biblical text.""These essays offer a fine tribute to Dr. Voelz. The range of authors and topics match his large-mindedness, intellectual curiosity, linguistic expertise, love of the Sacred Scriptures, and careful commitment to their theological interpretation. While they are all scholarly and engaging, the contributions of Caragounis ('The Weltanschauung of New Testament Authors'), Weinrich ('Doubting ""Doubting Thomas""') and Winger ('Saved through Child-Bearing?') are particularly helpful in challenging prevailing misconceptions.""--John W.

Emmet Gowin

Throughout his prolific career as a photographer, Emmet Gowin has threaded together seemingly disparate subjects: his wife, Edith, and their extended family; American and European landscapes; aerial views of environmental devastation, brought together by his ongoing interest in issues of scale, the impact of the individual, and notions of belonging. This long-awaited survey pays tribute to Gowin's remarkable career and his impact on the medium. Following his marriage to Edith Morris in 1964, Gowin began work on a series of images of his extended family that is now recognized as a touchstone of twentieth-century American photography. He photographed the children and the aging parents, and made intimate portraits of his wife, continuing a photographic tradition inherited from his mentor, Harry Callahan, with whom he studied in the 1960s. His focus broadened in the 1980s, when he began an exploration of landscape and aerial photography, most specifically in his documentation of Mount St. Helens and the American West. He has photographed in the Czech Republic, Italy, Mexico, Japan and the United States, with a continued interest in irrigation, mining and natural resources, and the effects of military testing on the environment. As a photography professor at Princeton University from 1973 to 2009, Gowin has exerted a powerful influence on several generations of photographers.Emmet Gowin (born 1941) earned his MFA in photography from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1967, after...

Critical Perspectives on Culture and Globalisation. The Intellectual Legacy of Ali Mazrui

In 1996 President Nelson Mandela described Professor Ali A. Mazrui (1933-2014) as “an outstanding educationist and freedom fighter.” In 2002 the former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan referred to Professor Mazrui as “Africa’s gift to the world.” Author of more than 35 books and hundreds of articles, Professor Mazrui was an African scholar who treated with uncommon flair a wide-range of themes that included globalization, the triple heritage, peace, and social justice. This volume engages with some of the themes that excited his attention for over six decades. The multidisciplinary essays seek to underline the highlights of Mazrui’s intellectual journey and attest to the fact that he was public intellectual par excellence. Indeed, in 2005, he was named one of the top 100 public intellectuals in the world. This book is a product of a symposium held from 15 to 17 July 2016 in Nairobi, Kenya. The symposium was jointly organized by the Twaweza Communications, Nairobi, Kenya, and the Institute of Global Cultural Studies (State University of New York at Binghamton) which Ali Mazrui created and presided over as the Albert Schweitzer Professor in the Humanities from 1991 to 2014.

BUCK BUCK Новинка

BUCK

MK Asante was born in Zimbabwe to American parents: a mother who led the new nation's dance company and a father who would soon become a revered pioneer in African American Studies. A little more than a decade later MK was back in America, in Philadelphia, calling himself Buck and carrying a semi-automatic gun to school. He was alone--his mother slowly collapsing from mental illness, his father gone, his sister in an asylum, and his older brother locked up in a prison on the other side of the country. Buck is a powerful tale about how one precocious, charming, confused boy educates himself on the streets of inner-city America--through gangs, hip-hop, cults, and, eventually, literature--and an inspiring tribute to the power of storytelling and poetry to heal us at our broken places.

Professor Fola Soremekun American Boy. A Life Inspired by American Ideals

This is an exhilarating autobiography of a dreamer, adventurer, historian, and a pioneer. In a captivating narrative that holds the readers attention throughout, Professor Soremekun weaves emotional, heartfelt, and sometimes humorous stories of his life in the context of his beloved family, his unshakeable faith, and major historical world events all of which greatly influenced him. The theme that drives and sustains him is truly the American spirit, in which he steeped himself at a young age. That and an innate drive early on in life earned him the nickname American Boy by his Nigerian peers. The culmination of his dreams was his journey, by sea, to the United States for school in 1956 and a half-century teaching career that periodically took him back to Africa (Nigeria and Zambia) and to traverse other continents and countries around the globe. After retiring in 2012 from Citrus College in California, Professor Soremekun returned to his native Nigeria where he currently lives out his dream of training a new generation inspired by the same ideals.

Celia Bonaduce Livin. Large in Fat Chance, Texas

"A fresh, heartwarming voice." -Jodi Thomas, New York Times bestselling authorFrom ghost town to growing community, it's been a few years since a group of strangers inherited property in tiny, deserted Fat Chance, Texas. And besides creating businesses, they've developed friendships and romances too. But plans to pave the town may put Dymphna Pearl and her beau, Professor Johnson, on opposite sides of Main Street. In his zeal for the project, he's making great decisions for Fat Chance, but not for them as a couple. Disgruntled, Dymphna heads back to Los Angeles to collect the rabbits she's created a special place for in the hot Texas climate. But the professor is in for another surprise... Professor Johnson didn't even know about Dympha's sister, Maggie, and when he meets her in a most unexpected way, he begins to understand why. In the meantime, Dymphna is off pursuing an exciting venture to let the world know about Fat Chance-one that will bring a talented new crew to the eclectic group. The kitschy little place they call home is clearly destined for bigger, better things--but with so many changes a-coming will the same be true for everyone in Fat Chance, including the professor and Dymphna?

Themes from A Course in Miracles. How Brothers Can Get Along

Who is your brother? Anyone and everyone within the sphere of your day: whoever you may come across. That's the challenge presented in A Course in Miracles (ACIM): to treat everyone as a brother with forgiveness, cooperation and empathy. The unique thing about ACIM is that it tells you how.The ACIM text was channeled by Columbia University Professor Helen Schucman and recorded by Professor William Thetford. It took them seven years. The channeled entity is Jesus Christ and the subject matter is the desires of God the Father-Creator with the Holy Spirit as teacher and guide. Every one of us is considered to be a son of God. The perception of a gap between our self and our brother is the problem that ACIM addresses. In spite of ego, fear and a tendency to attack one another, we are able to find within ourselves the love and light required to make the decision to create, to share and to heal. The miracle that closes the gap between us is forgiveness. We just need a little faith, and God does the rest.This book is a way in. Chapter by chapter, a theme or quote from each page summarizes the 600-page ACIM text. It makes an easy reference and provides discussion points. Original photography by the editor illustrates messages in the text.

Charlotte Bronte The Professor Charlotte Bronte The Professor Новинка

Charlotte Bronte The Professor

The Professor (1857) was Charlotte Brontë's first and least regarded novel, rejected by all publishers during her lifetime and published posthumously by her widower A. B. Nicholls. Charlotte herself defended the novel passionately. "I said to myself that my hero should work his way through life as I had seen real living men work theirs -- that he should never get a shilling he had not earned." Indeed, William Crimsworth, the hero, is the self-made master of all his life's ambiguous fortune, including his career as a professor in Brussels, and his true love. Whatever the comparisons to Charlotte Brontë's other, more popular novels, The Professor deserves a closer examination and a new reader perspective.
