Surviving Justice from the Author: . On September 30, 2003, Calvin was declared innocent and set free from Angola State Prison, after serving 22 years for a crime he did not commit. Like many other exonerees, Calvin experienced a new world that was not open to him. Hitting the streets without housing, money, or a change of clothes, exonerees across America are released only to fend for themselves. In the tradition of Studs Terkel's oral histories, this book collects the voices and stories of the exonerees for whom life — inside and out — is forever framed by extraordinary injustice

The Solution from the Author: Jay Morrison. The Solution is an intentional blueprint and 21st-century handbook designed to help today's African-American community achieve long overdue Unity, Justice, and Repair. Unlike many books tackling such complex subject matter, The Solution is an easy read, carefully crafted to engage the reader with its conversational tone, shocking truths, and bold remedies. This handbook is strategically divided into three focus areas, for optimum effectiveness: Mind-shift, Fact Disclosure, and Solution Action Steps. The purpose of this handbook is to take the struggle of Africans in America past merely documenting our oppression, trauma, and victimization suffered here in America, and provide real-life, practical action steps we as a people can implement today to advance our pursuit of Unity, Justice, and Repair. This may not be the end-all be-all answer for us Africans in America; however, this handbook will provide us a strong foundation and framework to build off of as we commit moving our community forward--by any means necessary.

Popular Justice from the Author: Manfred Berg. Lynching has often been called "America's national crime" that has defined the tradition of extralegal violence in America. Having claimed many thousand victims, "Judge Lynch" holds a firm place in the dark recesses of our national memory. In Popular Justice, Manfred Berg explores the history of lynching from the colonial era to the present. American lynch law, he argues, has rested on three pillars: the frontier experience, racism, and the anti-authoritarian spirit of grassroots democracy. Berg looks beyond the familiar story of mob violence against African American victims, who comprised the majority of lynch targets, to include violence targeting other victim groups, such as Mexicans and the Chinese, as well as many of those cases in which race did not play a role. As he nears the modern era, he focuses on the societal changes that ended lynching as a public spectacle. Berg's narrative concludes with an examination of lynching's legacy in American culture. From the colonial era and the American Revolution up to the twenty-first century, lynching has been a part of our nation's history. Manfred Berg provides us with the first comprehensive overview of "popular justice."

Gps For America from the Author: Abel Gashe. "The American Union is imperfect. But it is certainly motioning towards a more perfect union." It is this foundational thesis in the fulfillment of the American vision that this book focuses on. By affording an integrated and holistic approach, the book shows that the American dynamics is transformational living phenomenon framed on four major paradigms: that America is a land of freedom; that America is a land of opportunity; that America is impregnated with inertia within it that propels it to "repair its faults"; and that the nation has been moving to a higher ground in its motion with a concerted effort of its people as one (E pluribus Unum) to build a more perfect Union. A pragmatic but positive outlook on the American reality in the bountiful land by a first generation immigrant from Gojjam, Ethiopia, the author tries to help the reader develop a generic framework in understanding the evolving American reality since the founders took the bold step in 1776 to write an audacious proposal that "all men are created equal," endowed by the creator with "inalienable rights." The analysis in the book begins by framing the constitutional bases of the nation as a four dimensional compass. Using what he terms as the American GPS, he leads the reader to have a snapshot on the structure of American government, citizenship, church and state, legal, economic, political and foreign policy issues to show that in fact what is manifesting in the American socio-political topology is not a random act but an in-built, systemic transfiguration in creating the opportunity for all children of Adam to realize their God given inalienable rights, being Geezans (freely roaming citizens of the universe) in fulfilling the vision of the nation. After reading this book, the reader will never waste time in random thoughts about the American ever unfolding reality. By all accounts America is an emergent and noble idea whose better days are yet to come. That is the projection whose totality can be meaningfully captured through a living compass: The American GPS!

The Big Sort from the Author: Bill Bishop. In 2004, journalist Bill Bishop coined the term "the big sort." Armed with startling new demographic data, he made national news in a series of articles showing how Americans have been sorting themselves into alarmingly homogeneous communities -- not by region or by state, but by city and even neighborhood. Over the past three decades, we have been choosing the neighborhood (and church and news show) compatible with our lifestyle and beliefs. The result is a country that has become so polarized, so ideologically inbred that people don't know and can't understand those who live a few miles away. How this came to be, and its dire implications for our country, is the subject of this ground-breaking work. In The Big Sort, Bishop has taken his analysis to a new level. He begins with stories about how we live today and then draws on history, economics and our changing political landscape to create one of the most compelling big-picture accounts of America in recent memory.
