She lived in four worlds that in some ways never touched each other, except through her story. She had a German mother, a fragile survivor of World War II. She had an African-American father, with roots deep in the sharecropping South. She grew up on a U.S. Army base in post-war Germany, in many ways the safest of her worlds. She moved onto an army base in Missouri, a real world that posed the most danger.

Becoming is not so much something we do, as it is the end result of what God does in us. As a matter of fact, becoming has a whole lot more to do with being than it does with doing: being aware of His voice, being open to His hand, and being convinced of His love. That is what this book is about, and that, in the end, is what will truly transform us.

Let us create the lives we were born to live - it's our time. Belief systems are individual and subjective. Without understanding their origins, we become stuck in patterns and cycles; there is difficulty moving forward. Becoming . . . acts as a mirror, a guide for those who could use some help figuring out why we find it so difficult to remove ourselves from the negative situations life throws our way. Through the exploration of self-perception and the factors that influence the way we live and behave, we can rise above fixed patterns and transform the self. Employing common-sense wisdom in an engaging read, Mierop maps out ways to avoid the encumbrances with which negative experiences and self-doubt often imprison us.

Becoming Moon is a coming-of-age story about a young man struggling to be himself amid pressure from a repressive family. Following his dream of becoming a writer, he turns from everything he knows, and enters adulthood embittered, angry, and resentful. As he struggles to make a name for himself, he is presented with the opportunity of a lifetime. Although it requires a betrayal of his principles as an artist, he resigns himself to what appears to be fate. The compromise brings money and recognition, but these are fleeting and he soon finds himself caught in a web of depression and financial hardship.

Desperate, the writer begins taking trips to Michigan's Upper Peninsula, where he hopes to reconnect with his muse. During one of these excursions, he meets Nigel Moon, a grizzled author nearing the end of his career. Moon gives the writer a second golden opportunity and the chance to prove himself in the face of personal doubts--but only if the writer is able to set his past aside.

Hart's stripped-down prose brings the reader into direct contact with the story and its characters. Equal parts witty and dark and wry and tragic, the text uses simplicity as its focus. Raw and honest, Becoming Moon is an unforgettable book about exorcising past demons and finding personal redemption.

Our six book series is designed to empower girls to navigate their way through life with confidence, self-esteem, compassion, creativity, collaboration and joy through the thoughtful contemplation and expression of their own unique perspectives, ideals and experiences.  
     
Each book is excellent as a journal for one girl or as a tool in a group setting for writing and discussion.  Topics are particularly relevant today, such as, "I Believe in Me." Journal entries do not talk down or issue simple edicts, but respect the intelligence and individuality of every girl.
     
Take a step back from the bombardment of all those outer imprinting sources.  Now take some time to focus on you.  Use the notes pages to journal your thoughts as you explore, identify and celebrate all the qualities that make you unique.
    
I Believe in Me
    
What a difference it makes
When someone believes in you
To be told you can do it
To be told you are worthy
To be told you've got what it takes
That sure does make a difference
And I am grateful
When support like that 
Comes my way
Fueling my fire to succeed
But when it comes right down to it
All the praise in the world
Grand though it may be
Will never be enough
Unless I believe in me 
Because nothing else
Will ever make up for that
And my belief in myself does not mean
I am free of fear and insecurity
It means that despite those things
I have an unwavering faith
In my ability to achieve my dreams
It means that even when I feel
That I am the only one in the world
Who believes in me
That is enough
Because every goal I want to accomplish 
In my life
Has its genesis not from any outside source
But from within me
And that is why
I believe in me

Jill Homer was just another naive young woman who followed a man to the Last Frontier — but it was Alaska that won her heart. This memoir is a love story about the wonderful, humorous, and sometimes harrowing experiences that await when a woman throws her heart to the wind just to see where it lands. After taking a job at a weekly newspaper in Homer, Alaska, Jill and her partner forge a new life in a town where artists and sport fishermen drive the local economy, grizzly bears roam through back yards, social outings feature death-defying ski trips or kayaking rough seas in freezing rain, and business attire means wearing three sweaters to an unheated office. As Jill adapts to Homer's idiosyncrasies, she finds her own quirky hobby — riding a bike on snow. Despite having little in the way of an athletic background or talent, Jill signs up for a hundred-mile race across frozen wilderness. As the harsh Alaskan winter sets in, she launches a tenacious training routine that takes her far out of her comfort zone. Here, under the Northern Lights, battling exhaustion and extreme cold, Jill discovers the heart of Alaska. And there's no going back.

Publisher's description: Studs Terkel tells us in his Foreword to the definitive Griffin Estate Edition of Black Like Me: "This is a contemporary book, you bet." Indeed, Black Like Me remains required reading in thousands of high schools and colleges forthis very reason. Regardless of how much progress has been made in eliminating outright racism from American life, Black Like Me endures as a great human--and humanitarian--document. In our era, when "international" terrorism is most often defined in terms of a single ethnic designation and a single religion, we need to be reminded that America has been blinded by fear and racial intolerance before. As John Lennon wrote, "Living is easy with eyes closed." Black Like Me is the story of a man who opened his eyes, and helped an entire nation to do likewise.

WHEN BLACK AND WHITE BECOME GRAY Whether we talk about "Right from Wrong", "Good from Evil", "Black and White in contradiction of Gray", "Capitalism in opposition to Socialism", "Conservatives in opposition to Liberalism", "Humanism, Secularism or Naturalism versus Christianity", and leading the horde "Atheism" opposing all and anyone believing in the Christian values of the originator Jesus Christ, as taken from Scriptures of the Holy Bible and formed into our Constitution. The lack of legitimate authority caused by the denial of God reinforces the Christian's belief that God must be recognized as ruler in every sphere, including local and federal governmental politics. We are now seeing violations taking hold in this 21st century by men who want new awe-inspiring laws that bind man to authority, with exception of mans pleasure, fitness or convenience, which is not binding at all. The twentieth-century should have taught Americans that even the most basic of human rights cannot exist yet again and again apart from an absolute Christian standard. This standard is given to you in this book. Who is sovereign, and to whom is man responsible to? This source of sovereignty resides only in following Jesus Christ, and has been for over two-hundred and thirty-four years in America and is still, if we in simple terms want this very source of American freedom. But if sovereignty resides in government, whether a monarchy or a democracy, behaving in an overbearing dictatorial way, man has no appeal beyond the law of the state, and has no source of Christian truths, principles and ethics. Leading only into oppression and totalitarianism, Freedom, first of all is a question of self-determination and responsibility. In the two-years it took to do research, study and having the strength or tendency to condense not by opinion but by history, common sense and reality regarding, "Capitalism", "Atheism", "Socialism" and the strategy used by Marxists liberals to overthrow our American freedoms.

White on White/Black on Black is a unique contribution to the philosophy of race. The book explores how fourteen philosophers, seven white and seven black, philosophically understand the dynamics of the process of racialization. Combined, the contributions demonstrate different and similar conceptual trajectories of raced identities that emerge from within and across the racial divide. Each of the fourteen philosophers, who share a textual space of exploration, name blackness/whiteness, revealing significant political, cultural, and existential aspects of what it means to be black/white. Through the power of naming and theorizing whiteness and blackness, White on White/Black on Black dares to bring clarity and complexity to our understanding of race identity.

This book grounds particular struggles at the curious interface of skin, body, psyche, hegemonies and politics. Specifically, it adds to current [re]theorizations of Blackness, anti-Blackness and Black solidarities, through anti-colonial and decolonial prisms. The discussion challenges the reductionism of contemporary polity of Blackness in regards to capitalism/globalization, particularly when relegated to the colonial power and privileged experiences of settler. The book does so by arguing that this practice perpetuates procedures of violence and social injustice upon Black and African peoples. The book brings critical readings to Black racial identity, representation and politics informed by pertinent questions: What are the tools/frameworks Black peoples in Euro-American/Canadian contexts can deploy to forge community and solidarity, and to resist anti-Black racism and other social oppressions? What critical analytical tools can be developed to account for Black lived experiences, agency and resistance? What are the limits of the tools or frameworks for anti-racist, anti-colonial work? How do such critical tools or frameworks of Blackness and anti-Blackness assist in anti-racist and anti-colonial practice? The book provides new coordinates for collective and global mobilization by troubling the politics of “decolonizing solidarity” as pointing to new ways for forging critical friends and political workers. The book concludes by offering some important lessons for teaching and learning about Blackness and anti-Blackness confronting some contemporary issues of schooling and education in Euro-American contexts, and suggesting ways to foster dialogic and generative forums for such critical discussions.

After decades of denying racism and underplaying cultural diversity, Latin American states began adopting transformative ethno-racial legislation in the late 1980s. In addition to symbolic recognition of indigenous peoples and black populations, governments in the region created a more pluralistic model of citizenship and made significant reforms in the areas of land, health, education, and development policy. Becoming Black Political Subjects explores this shift from color blindness to ethno-racial legislation in two of the most important cases in the region: Colombia and Brazil. Drawing on archival and ethnographic research, Tianna Paschel shows how, over a short period, black movements and their claims went from being marginalized to become institutionalized into the law, state bureaucracies, and mainstream politics. The strategic actions of a small group of black activists—working in the context of domestic unrest and the international community's growing interest in ethno-racial issues—successfully brought about change. Paschel also examines the consequences of these reforms, including the institutionalization of certain ideas of blackness, the reconfiguration of black movement organizations, and the unmaking of black rights in the face of reactionary movements. Becoming Black Political Subjects offers important insights into the changing landscape of race and Latin American politics and provokes readers to adopt a more transnational and flexible understanding of social movements.

Essay from the year 2002 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: A-, San Francisco State University (Ethnic Studies), course: AAS 710 Seminar: Critical Approaches, language: English, abstract: Race in the US has always been defined in white and black categories. Groups who do not obviously fit in any of these two categories have had a hard time defining their own position within such a society, and society, likewise, has had a hard time to decide where to put them. Asians, mostly because of their outside appearance have usually been given a position in between black and white. Since the 1960s, they have, on the one hand, been pitted against Blacks as a “model minority” and, on the other hand, they have not been given equality with whites. White society has had a particular hard time attributing Filipinos and Asian Indians, who are today considered Asians, a racial category, for they do not look Asian and usually have a dark skin color. In the case of Asian Indians, there was also the issue that they are Caucasian. The dichotomy of white and black has also very often been associated with that of good and evil, smart and stupid, superior and inferior and the like. Because of this harsh opposition of black and white, without a gray zone in between, the question whether or not Asians have to become “white” in order to achieve the position or place they claim has to be considered very carefully.

The 20th Century has been marked by enormous change in terms of how we define race. In large part, we have thrown out the antiquated notions of the 1800s, giving way to a more realistic, sociocultural view of the world. The United States is, perhaps more than any other industrialized country, distinguished by the size and diversity of its racial and ethnic minority populations. Current trends promise that these features will endure. Fifty years from now, there will most likely be no single majority group in the United States. How will we fare as a nation when race-based issues such as immigration, job opportunities, and affirmative action are already so contentious today? In America Becoming, leading scholars and commentators explore past and current trends among African Americans, Hispanics, Asian Americans, and Native Americans in the context of a white majority. This volume presents the most up-to-date findings and analysis on racial and social dynamics, with recommendations for ongoing research. It examines compelling issues in the field of race relations, including: Race and ethnicity in criminal justice. Demographic and social trends for Hispanics, Asian Americans, and Native Americans. Trends in minority-owned businesses. Wealth, welfare, and racial stratification. Residential segregation and the meaning of "neighborhood." Disparities in educational test scores among races and ethnicities. Health and development for minority children, adolescents, and adults. Race and ethnicity in the labor market, including the role of minorities in America's military. Immigration and the dynamics of race and ethnicity. The changing meaning of race. Changing racial attitudes. This collection of papers, compiled and edited by distinguished leaders in the behavioral and social sciences, represents the most current literature in the field. Volume 1 covers demographic trends, immigration, racial attitudes, and the geography of opportunity. Volume 2 deals with the criminal justice system, the labor market, welfare, and health trends, Both books will be of great interest to educators, scholars, researchers, students, social scientists, and policymakers.

"Warren Brown grew up in segregated New Orleans - black, Catholic, middle class. Martha McNeil was from white, blue-collar Houston. It was the 1960s and integration was becoming the law, but it wasn't the reality. There were still "colored only" doors and drinking fountains, whites-only schools and libraries. Warren wasn't allowed to take holy Communion at the "white" church. Martha's closest girlfriend abandoned her when, at college, Martha befriended a black man." "Both Warren and Martha were "affirmative action hires" at The Washington Post in the early 1970s. They worked together for more than twenty years; becoming friends as they shared the ups and downs of life. Then Warren became sick with kidney disease. A kidney donated to him by his wife failed. He was on the verge of death when Martha, informed she was also a blood type match, donated her kidney to her friend." "Warren and Martha chronicled their experiences surrounding the surgery in a series of articles written for the Post. To them, it was a simple story of friendship, a successful operation, and a happy ending. But the extraordinary popular reaction to their articles, especially among blacks, revealed that their story was something more: it was a success story about integration." "Now, in Black & White & Red All Over, the friends tell the whole tale: of their childhoods in the segregated South, of their meeting and deepening friendship, of Warren's brush with death, and Martha's decision to help save his life. This book chronicles the intersection of two lives that, but for the changes in American society of the last half-century, would never have occurred."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
