Book excerpt: Neil Kingsblood is a white middle-class man who discovers, while researching his family background, that he is directly descended from an African adventurer on the American frontier. Through various machinations, Kingsblood loses his banking job and takes a lesser one. He begins to be treated differently by former acquaintances, despite the lack of visible black African ancestry. He is forced to choose between continuing what he has come to see as a hollow existence in the white community and taking on the oppressed minority status of the black community. After Kingsblood tells several white friends about his newfound ancestry, the news quickly spreads, and he finds that acquaintances change their behavior toward him. He engages in a quixotic struggle against the racism newly apparent but widespread in his community.

Read and Download Matthew Frye Jacobson book Whiteness of a Different Color in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Full book Whiteness of a Different Color. This book was released on 1999-09-01 with total page 365 pages. Book excerpt: America's racial odyssey is the subject of this remarkable work of historical imagination. Matthew Frye Jacobson argues that race resides not in nature but in the contingencies of politics and culture. In ever-changing racial categories we glimpse the competing theories of history and collective destiny by which power has been organized and contested in the United States. Capturing the excitement of the new field of "whiteness studies" and linking it to traditional historical inquiry, Jacobson shows that in this nation of immigrants "race" has been at the core of civic assimilation: ethnic minorities, in becoming American, were re-racialized to become Caucasian.

Book excerpt: Magic is returning. Or so say the old prophesies cobbled from wandering soothsayers, women huffing broken gas lines, and the back of comic tomes. The Evil Empire of Avar and its perfectly sane, in no way crazy Emperor risks others' life and limb to stop it from coming to pass. Ciara, a black servant into her sixteenth year, finds herself on a quest across the countryside to get the second son and only hope of the severed Ostero line onto his throne. Along the way, she and Aldrin - the rather simple and OH GODS KEEP HIM AWAY FROM ANYTHING SHARP prince - find themselves at the mercy of assassins, witches, traveling historians, killer doctors, and the unblinkers. Can two teens survive an Empire crashing down upon them while a shambling army of corpses waits patiently in the shadows? Will the religious fight for and against magic rip apart the world they all became rather fond of? And just how can a fifteen year old take over a throne dangling precariously over the edge of war?

Book excerpt: “And he has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings” (Acts 17:26). Science has proven that the human race is related by blood, and the Bible reveals how God’s eternal covenant with mankind is based on blood. Learn why this is a vital key for daily living. Without the atoning blood of Jesus, sinful man is separated from God. Believers are redeemed by the power of the blood of Jesus, which Christ himself has placed on the mercy seat in heaven. Christians obtain righteousness and power over sin by the blood of Jesus, by the merit of that blood which he offered up as an atoning sacrifice. Christ’s blood brings us into fellowship with God: “But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ” (Ephesians 2:13). The ability to enter God’s presence is founded upon the blood of Jesus and his high priestly ministry. Jesus says in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” Jesus, the High Priest, is the living way through whom we can draw near to God to honor and devote ourselves to him with diligence with all our heart and without selfish motives. Believers must be aware they are dependent upon God’s divine grace and should have no other purpose but to please him. Learn how the sacrificial blood of God’s very own Son, Jesus Christ, becomes the spiritual DNA of all who receive him as Lord and Savior. You, too, can experience a victorious life in this challenging world and know you have eternal life!

This book was released on 2007-02-06 with total page 384 pages. Book excerpt: The national bestselling author of Rite of Conquest continues the saga of a Britain torn between ancient magic and religious doctrine—and the turbulent lives of the two sons of William the Conqueror. William the Conqueror is dead. The Norman king freed England from the stranglehold of Saxon Christianity, but in the years following his beloved queen’s death, he turned his back on the magic that sustains the land. Inheriting the throne is the Conqueror’s eldest son, Red William, who is determined to leave magic out of his rule entirely. And without a true king, the land weakens, suffers, and begins to die. The fate of Britain lies with two people gifted in magic: Edith, princess of Scotland, and Henry, youngest son of the Conqueror. But Edith is imprisoned in a convent, forced to suppress her abilities and embrace Saxon ideology, while Henry has no lands or authority of his own. And only a great sacrifice—the blood of a king—will cleanse Britain from the evil and pestilence that infects it.
Read and Download Michael Fedo book Zenith City in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Full book Zenith City. This book was released on 2014-04-15 with total page 153 pages. Book excerpt: Duluth may be the city of “untold delights” as lampooned in a Kentucky congressman’s speech in 1871. Or it may be portrayed by a joke in Woody Allen’s film Manhattan. Or then again, it may be the “Zenith City of the unsalted seas” celebrated by Dr. Thomas Preston Foster, founder of the city’s first newspaper. But whatever else it may be, this city of granite hills, foghorns, and gritty history, the last stop on the shipping lanes of the Great Lakes, is undeniably a city with character—and characters. Duluth native Michael Fedo captures these characters through the happy-go-melancholy lens nurtured by the people and landscape of his youth. In Zenith City Fedo brings it back home. Framed by his reflections on Duluth’s colorful—and occasionally very dark—history and its famous visitors, such as Sinclair Lewis, Joe DiMaggio, and Bob Dylan, his memories make the city as real as the boy next door but with a better story. Here, among the graceful, poignant, and often hilarious remembered moments—pranks played on a severe teacher, the family’s unlikely mob connections, a rare childhood affliction—are the coordinates of Duluth’s larger landscape: the diners and supper clubs, the baseball teams, radio days, and the smelt-fishing rites of spring. Woven through these tales of Duluth are Fedo’s curious, instructive, and ultimately deeply moving stories about becoming a writer, from the guidance of an English teacher to the fourteen-year-old reporter’s interview with Louis Armstrong to his absorption in the events that would culminate in his provocative and influential book The Lynchings in Duluth. These are the sorts of essays—personal, cultural, and historical, at once regional and far-reaching—that together create a picture of people in a place as rich in history and anecdote as Duluth and of the forces that forever bind them together.

Full book Passing Fancies in Jewish American Literature and Culture. This book was released on 2019-01-09 with total page 275 pages. Book excerpt: This scholarly study explores the conflicting forces of assimilation and cultural heritage in literary portrayals of Jewish American identity. In Passing Fancies in Jewish American Literature and Culture Judith Ruderman takes on the fraught question of who passes for Jewish in American literature and culture. In today’s contemporary political climate, religious and racial identities are being reconceived as responses to culture and environment, rather than essential qualities. Many Jews continue to hold conflicting ideas about their identity?seeking deep engagement with Jewish history and the experiences of the Jewish people while holding steadfastly to the understanding that identity is fluid and multivalent. Looking at carefully chosen texts from American literature, Ruderman elaborates on the strategies Jews have used to “pass” from the late nineteenth century to the present?nose jobs, renaming, clothing changes, religious and racial reclassification, and even playing baseball. While traversing racial and religious identities has always been a feature of America’s nation of immigrants, Ruderman shows how the complexities of identity formation and deformation are critically relevant during this important cultural moment.
Read and Download Charles Johnson book Turning the Wheel in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Full book Turning the Wheel. This book was released on 2010-06-15 with total page 208 pages. Book excerpt: "Were it not for the Buddhadharma, says Charles Johnson in his preface to Turning the Wheel, "I'm convinced that, as a black American and an artist, I would not have been able to successfully negotiate my last half century of life in this country. Or at least not with a high level of creative productivity." In this collection of provocative and intimate essays, Johnson writes of the profound connection between Buddhism and creativity, and of the role of Eastern philosophy in the quest for a free and thoughtful life. In 1926, W. E. B. Du Bois asked African-Americans what they would most want were the color line miraculously forgotten. In Turning the Wheel, Johnson sets out to explore this question by examining his experiences both as a writer and as a practitioner of Buddhism. He looks at basic Buddhist principles and practices, demonstrating how Buddhism is both the most revolutionary and most civilized of possible human choices. He discusses fundamental Buddhist practices such as the Eightfold Path, Taming the Mind, and Sangha and illuminates their place in the American Civil Rights movement. Johnson moves from spiritual guides to spiritual nourishment: writing. In essays touching on the role of the black intellectual, Uncle Tom's Cabin, and Ralph Ellison, Johnson uses tools of Buddhist thinking to clarify difficult ideas. Powerful and revelatory, these essays confirm that writing and reading, along with Buddhism, are the basic components that make up a thoughtful life.
