Race and Colorism in Education by Carla Monroe Pdf

As one of the first scholarly books to focus on colorism in education, this volume considers how connections between race and color may influence school-based experiences. Chapter authors question how variations in skin tone, as well as related features such as hair texture and eye color, complicate perspectives on race and they demonstrate how colorism is a form of discrimination that affects educational stakeholders, especially students, families, and professionals, across P-16 institutions. This volume provides an outline of colorism’s contemporary relevance within the United States and shares considerations for international dimensions that are linked to immigration, refugee populations, and Canada. By situating colorism in an educational context, this book offers suggestions for how educators may engage and confront this form of discrimination.

Spirit and Soul by Theodore Kirkland Pdf

Spirit and Soul: Odyssey of a Black Man in America, Volume One, an engaging, edifying autobiography by Theodore Kirkland, offers critical insight and politically cognizant commentary on the past, future and real-time reality of race relations in America. His long career in law enforcement – some 39 years total as a military police officer, Buffalo police officer, New York State parole board commissioner and adjunct professor – begins by happenstance in the Air Force. Instead of being sent to gunnery school as he requested, he is ordered to report to the Army Military Police Academy in Camp Gordon, Georgia. Kirkland’s narrative voice in this page turner is clear, self-effacing and relentlessly candid – unapologetic for the black and white of his experience, and cautionary in his instruction for navigation through the gray. Yet in every syllable, there is a remarkable, palpable love – for his family, friends and community – and unyielding commitment to upholding the Constitutional promise that “all men are created equal.” Spirit and Soul: Odyssey of a Black Man in America, Volume One is at once witty and wise; poignant, wistful and meticulously illustrative of an American perspective too often shadowed by stereotypes that contend that Black men contribute primarily to the prison population. It also is an important chronology of the evolution of African American life and experience from Jim Crow to contemporary “Post-racial America.”

Callie Shaw Stable Boy by Judy Alter Pdf

"No girl's allowed! No girls are allowed to work in the racing stables . . . Not even with your aunt's permission!" How many times had Callie heard the man say it? Not that Aunt Edna would ever agree anyway. Aunt Edna always said that horse racing coming to Texas brought "the devil amongst us," but Callie figured she knew better. The horses were so beautiful and the races so exciting, it just couldn't be bad. Callie also knew something else—even though she was a girl, she must find a way to be a stable boy.

Called for a Purpose by Dr. Hyacinth B. Hue Pdf

My life has been filled with love yet not without trials, tests, temptations and persecution. Through it all, God-Jehovah has never left me nor forsaken me, even when I have forsaken Him. He has been a constant in my life and has miraculously saved my family and all those with whom I have been in contact. I sincerely pray that this biography of my life with Jesus Christ will encourage the reader to follow the Call in his or her life. There is nothing special about me. My only virtue is Gods love, which has brought me to obedience, increased faith, trust, love and forgiveness. I am Gods Go-Go Girl Wherever He sends me I go! Whatever He says Do I do! My love for Him is overwhelming, my worship of Him is everlasting, my praise of Him is insufficient, since I have not the tongues of angels. May He hear my praise from the crevices of my heart and continue to bless my efforts as I labour in the vineyard of life, for souls for His kingdom. Jesus, keep me near the cross; Where the precious fountain, Free to all, a cleansing stream, Flows from Calvarys mountain. In the cross, in the cross, Be my glory ever.

I Am Black by Anton Dormer Pdf

All over the world skin color has come to play an abnormal role in determining the quality of life for so many. Discrimination based on one's skin color is still rampant. The notion that the light-skinned is most desirable is propagated in part by the fact that the countries where the majority of the citizens are mostly light skinned seem to have more wealth and power that those countries in which the vast majority of the citizens are dark skinned. Where dark skinned individuals are the minority those individuals have had untold suffering over several generations. Those lingering references of light skinned individuals over dark skinned individuals continues today even within many ethnics and racial groups. This poem with photos book does not claim to be able to overcome all of the challenges that are associated with skin color. It is the hope of the book to be able to foster conversations within the United States and around the world that those that are dark skinned should have the same pride of those that are light skinned and then we should all work for a colorblind world where discrimination due to skin color does not exist. This could be a powerful lesson book that could be used within the classroom and other venue to discuss skin color. This poem book, "I am Black" is just part of the ongoing fight to create a colorblind society where individuals are judge by how they treat others and their contributions to the betterment of their society and not by their skin color.

The Image of the Black in Jewish Culture by Abraham Melamed Pdf

The evolving image of the Black in the history of Jewish culture is being traced here in the conceptual framework of recent post-modern theories of the 'other'. The study focuses on the mechanisms by which an ethno-religious minority group considered by the dominant majority to be the inferior 'other' identifies its own inferior other. While until recently most scholarly attention has been devoted to the attitudes towards the Jews as 'other', this is the first comprehensive discussion of the attitudes of the Jews to their own 'others'.

Racism in the 21st Century by Ronald E. Hall Pdf

In the post-Civil Rights era, there is a temptation to assume that racism is no longer the pressing social concern in the United States that it once was. The contributors show that racism has not fallen from the forefront of American society, but is manifest in a different way. According to the authors in this volume, in 21st century, skin color has come to replace race as an important cause of discrimination. This is evidenced in the increasing usage of the term “people of color” to encompass people of a variety of racial and ethnic backgrounds. The editor has compiled a diverse group of contributors to examine racism from an interdisciplinary perspective. Contributions range from the science of racism, from its perceived biological basis at the end of the 19th century, to sociological studies its new forms in the 21st century. The result is a work that will be invaluable to understanding the challenges of confronting Racism in the 21st Century.

The Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma by Stephen Warren Pdf

Non-Indians have amassed extensive records of Shawnee leaders dating back to the era between the French and Indian War and the War of 1812. But academia has largely ignored the stories of these leaders’ descendants—including accounts from the Shawnees’ own perspectives. The Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma focuses on the nineteenth- and twentieth-century experiences of the Eastern Shawnee Tribe, presenting a new brand of tribal history made possible by the emergence of tribal communities’ own research centers and the resources afforded by the digital age. Offering various perspectives on the history of the Eastern Shawnees, this volume combines essays by leading and emerging scholars of Shawnee history with contributions by Eastern Shawnee citizens and interviews with tribal elders. Editor Stephen Warren introduces the collection, acknowledging that the questions and concerns of colonizers have dominated the themes of American Indian history for far too long. The essays that follow introduce readers to the story of the Eastern Shawnees and consider treaties with the U.S. government, laws impacting the tribe, and tribal leadership. They analyze the Eastern Shawnees’ ways of telling the tribe’s stories, detail Shawnee experiences of federal boarding schools, and recount stories of their chiefs. The book concludes with five tribal members’ life histories, told in their own words. The Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma is the culmination of years of collaboration between tribal citizens and Native as well as non-Native scholars. Providing a fuller, more nuanced, and more complete portrayal of Native American historical experiences, this book serves as a resource for both future scholars and tribal members to reconstruct the Eastern Shawnee past and thereby better understand the present. This book was made possible through generous funding from the Administration for Native Americans.
