♥ Book Title : Black Privilege
☯ Full Synopsis : "An instant New York Times bestseller! Charlamagne Tha God—the self-proclaimed “Prince of Pissing People Off,” cohost of Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, and “the most important voice in hip-hop”—shares his eight principles for unlocking your God-given privilege. In Black Privilege, Charlamagne presents his often controversial and always brutally honest insights on how living an authentic life is the quickest path to success. This journey to truth begins in the small town of Moncks Corner, South Carolina, and leads to New York and headline-grabbing interviews and insights from celebrities like Kanye West, Kevin Hart, Malcolm Gladwell, Lena Dunham, Jay Z, and Hillary Clinton. Black Privilege lays out all the great wisdom Charlamagne’s been given from many mentors, and tells the uncensored story of how he turned around his troubled early life by owning his (many) mistakes and refusing to give up on his dreams, even after his controversial opinions got him fired from several on-air jobs. These life-learned principles include: -There are no losses in life, only lessons -Give people the credit they deserve for being stupid—starting with yourself -It’s not the size of the pond but the hustle in the fish -When you live your truth, no one can use it against you -We all have privilege, we just need to access it By combining his own story with bold advice and his signature commitment to honesty no matter the cost, Charlamagne hopes Black Privilege will empower you to live your own truth."Article| Charlamagne Tha God| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Black Privilege
☯ Full Synopsis : ""The choices people make as consumers-that is purchases ranging from food and clothing, to houses, to cars, to entertainment-has long been an important site of sociological study. It is a ubiquitous human activity that is both symptom and signifier of much larger social processes, and is a crucial lens for understanding group identity. In Black Privilege, Cassi L. Pittman Claytor examines contemporary race relations and racial inequality as experienced by members of the black American middle class, using the lens of consumer behavior. Based upon observational data, interviews, and ethnography conducted in New York City, Pittman Claytor paints a picture of the social experiences and entitlements that what she calls "black privilege" entails. Central to this idea is the fact that middle-class black consumers must constantly balance personal race- and class-based preferences (e.g. a preference to support black businesses) against market pressures and a number of different social worlds, a juxtaposition that has not been fully explored in the literature on consumption to date. Black Privilege is shown to be a tool that can be used to mitigate the negative effects of racial stigma, which contaminate black consumers' experiences even in the marketplace. Such cultural flexibility also demonstrates how consumptive dispositions and affinities are (often strategically) altered depending on the dynamics of the social context of the moment. Pittman Claytor's rich ethnography provides original analysis as to what middle-class status buys black people who have cultural capital, credentials, and cash on hand-not just materially, but also in terms of counteracting anti-black bias"--"Article| Cassi Pittman Claytor| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Existential Togetherness
☯ Full Synopsis : "The notion of community entails more than just shared space in the here-and-now moment. For African Americans especially, communal engagement is a sacred experience that stretches from the mundane to the spectacular in a cyclical historical pattern. DeWayne R. Stallworth illumines the broadness of this African American religious experience by looking back to the first shared experience of unbiased community that occurred during slavery. He then explores the difficulties of maintaining such a unity under the threat of supremacy as experienced through systemic structures of both white and black privilege. Most important, Stallworth unpacks how the black religious leader, although caricatured as uncouth and ignorant, remained the moral compass for community progression and uplift until the civil rights era. This provocative book is essential reading for anyone with a desire to obtain a broader and deeper understanding of what it means to be black, religious, and American in the twenty-first-century United States."Article| DeWayne R. Stallworth| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Shook One
☯ Full Synopsis : "Charlamagne Tha God, New York Times bestselling author of Black Privilege and always provocative cohost of Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, reveals his blueprint for breaking free from your fears and anxieties. Being “shook” is more than a rap lyric for Charlamagne, it’s his mission to overcome. While it may seem like he’s ahead of the game, he is actually plagued by anxieties, such as the fear of losing his roots, the fear of being a bad dad, and the fear of being a terrible husband. In the national bestseller Shook One, Charlamagne chronicles his journey to beat those fears and shows a path that you too can take to overcome the anxieties that may be holding you back. Ironically, Charlamagne’s fear of failure—of falling into the life of stagnation or crime that caught up so many of his friends and family in his hometown of Moncks Corner—has been the fuel that has propelled him to success. However, even after achieving national prominence as a radio personality, Charlamagne still found himself paralyzed by anxiety and distrust. Here, in Shook One, he is working through these problems—many of which he traces back to cultural PTSD—with help from mentors, friends, and therapy. Being anxious doesn’t serve the same purpose anymore. Through therapy, he’s figuring out how to get over the irrational fears that won’t take him anywhere positive. Charlamange hopes Shook One can be a call to action: Getting help is your right. His second book “cements the radio personality’s stance in making sure he’s on the right side of history when it comes to society’s growing focus on mental health, while helping remove the negative stigma” (Billboard)."Article| Charlamagne Tha God| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : The Spiritual Lives of Young African Americans
☯ Full Synopsis : "How do young African Americans approach their faith in God when continued violence and police brutality batters the news each day? In The Spiritual Lives of Young African Americans, Almeda M. Wright argues that African American youth separate their everyday lives and their spirituality into mutually exclusive categories. This results in a noticeable division between their experiences of systemic injustices and their religious beliefs and practices. Yet Wright suggests that youth can and do teach the church and society myriad lessons through their theological reflections and actions. Giving special attention to the resources of African American religious and theological traditions, Wright creates a critical pedagogy for integrating spirituality into the lives of African American youth, as well as confronting and navigating spiritual fragmentation and systemic injustice."Article| Almeda Wright| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Reflections in the Dark Room
☯ Full Synopsis : "In Reflections in the Dark Room: The Black Essays, author Richard Kenyada examines the rich mosaic of contemporary African American culture from politics, race and war, to love, self-reliance and personal responsibility. With the election of Barack Obama as President of the United States, Kenyadas latest work signals both a wake-up call and a challenge to ante up. This book serves as a celebration of how far we have come, and a detailed map charting how far we have yet to go. But even of greater significance is the discovery that we have come one step closer to choosing the black doll and being proud of our choice."Article| Richard Kenyada| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Black Picket Fences
☯ Full Synopsis : "Black Picket Fences is a stark, moving, and candid look at a section of America that is too often ignored by both scholars and the media: the black middle class. The result of living for three years in "Groveland," a black middle-class neighborhood on Chicago's South Side, sociologist Mary Pattillo-McCoy has written a book that explores both the advantages and the boundaries that exist for members of the black middle class. Despite arguments that race no longer matters, Pattillo-McCoy shows a different reality, one where black and white middle classes remain separate and unequal. "An insightful look at the socio-economic experiences of the black middle class. . . . Through the prism of a South Side Chicago neighborhood, the author shows the distinctly different reality middle-class blacks face as opposed to middle-class whites." —Ebony "A detailed and well-written account of one neighborhood's struggle to remain a haven of stability and prosperity in the midst of the cyclone that is the American economy." —Emerge"Article| Mary Pattillo-McCoy| Statement ..."

From their union, Michael Wenger has three children, four grandchildren, and one great grandchild. Years later, Mr. Wenger served as Deputy Director for Outreach and Program Development for President Clintons Initiative on Race, an opportunity that confirmed for him the conscious and unconscious bias that people of color confront daily in the United States.

Mr. Wengers remarkable and inspirational story will, at times, move you to tears while occasionally triggering a knowing laugh as he recounts the struggles and triumphs of his journey. It will awaken you to the stark realities of life for some in America today, while fostering hope for and a commitment to a more racially equitable and harmonious future for all."Article| Michael R.

♥ Book Title : Geographies of Privilege
☯ Full Synopsis : "How are social inequalities experienced, reproduced and challenged in local, global and transnational spaces? What role does the control of space play in distribution of crucial resources and forms of capital (housing, education, pleasure, leisure, social relationships)? The case studies in Geographies of Privilege demonstrate how power operates and is activated within local, national, and global networks. Twine and Gardener have put together a collection that analyzes how the centrality of spaces (domestic, institutional, leisure, educational) are central to the production, maintenance and transformation of inequalities. The collected readings show how power--in the form of economic, social, symbolic, and cultural capital--is employed and experienced. The volume’s contributors take the reader to diverse sites, including brothels, blues clubs, dance clubs, elite schools, detention centers, advocacy organizations, and public sidewalks in Canada, Italy, Spain, United Arab Emirates, Mozambique, South Africa, and the United States. Geographies of Privilege is the perfect teaching tool for courses on social problems, race, class and gender in Geography, Sociology and Anthropology."Article| France Winddance Twine| Statement ..."
