Testify from the Author: Douglas Manuel. A poignant and astonishing debut, Testify interrogates race in America without feigning easy answers. In these poems Manuel crafts ambivalent spaces that seek steady reconciliation between past and present, self and family, faith and skepticism. As racial tensions heighten across the country, Testify offers an introspective rather than voicing a movement, arguing that individual experience is key to understanding the truth of the trials at hand.

Testify from the Author: K. R. Bowman. Most people can remember and relate to the mountaintop experiences they have had during their lives, such as birthdays, graduations, getting married, having children, getting a job, etc. Those experiences are great. But what about the valley experiences we also go through during our lives, such as sickness, addictions, divorce, depression, death? We usually don't like to remember those times in our lives, let alone talk about them. In Testify: How I got to here from there, K. R. Bowman shares not only some of his mountaintops, but also some of his valleys he has been through in his life. What is the result of these two factors in his life? That his faith has grown through both of them. Thanks for allowing me to read your autobiography. Very interesting and your brutal honesty causes one to do some self-examinations. I am particularly impressed with how you weaved God's Living Word in with your experiences giving it "Life Application." Pastor Lee Rucker Jr.

Time To Testify from the Author: John N. Haswell. Time To Testify provides a fascinating view into the private practice of obstetrics and gynecology. Dr. Jay Atwell is on duty when the wife of a JAG officer goes into labor and ruptures her uterus. The instant his scalpel enters the abdominal cavity, a sea of red floods over the edges of the table and splatters onto the green tiled floor. He worries about the baby, hopes it wouldn’t be brain damaged. The first rays of dawn barely visible, he knows how little time separates light from darkness, how only minutes separated triumph from disaster, and how only seconds separate life from death. His relationship with a navy nurse is more than comradery. He leaves the navy and searchs for a place to set up practice, checks out a Catholic hospital. “Sister Agnes, your hospital’s reproductive policies are oppressive to women, offensive to my own beliefs, and incompatible with those of my profession. Do you get special absolution from the Vatican to distort the truth?” In his struggle to upgrade Clarkesville ́s obstetrical department he locks horns with hospital bureaucracy and demands that obstetrical nurses be trained to scrub-in for emergency cesareans in order to meet the required thirty–minute start-up time. Vivian, his longtime patient, begs him to deliver her next baby by VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean). He refuses to handle her pregnancy. Vivian ruptures her womb, loses her baby and her uterus. Dr. Atwell blames the hospital. “I repeatedly warned this hospital ́s administration that our department of obstetrics was a disaster waiting to happen and they did nothing to correct the problems. A disaster is exactly what happened.” After Vivian is awarded thousands of dollars she names Dr. Atwell as a defendant in a malpractice suit. Eight years later, he stands trial. A surprise witness testifies for Vivian, but her testimony backfires. “Dr. Atwell was the obstetrician on duty the night I was born . . . the night my mother’s uterus ruptured. He performed an emergency caesarean . . . pulled me out . . . saved my life.” Ellen Jones, a retired navy nurse and Dr. Atwell’s old flame, attends the trial. The jury deliberates, Vivian’s attorney becomes ill. The verdict is in. Setting and Location A labor and delivery ward in Northern Maryland, Portsmouth Naval Hospital, and Naval Air Station, Patuxent River, Maryland. Dr. Atwell’s private office, Doctors’ surgical lounge, Clarkesville Memorial Hospital. The Gulf Coast of Florida. A courtroom.

Testify from the Author: Simone John. Poetry. TESTIFY (Octopus Books), Simone John's first full-length book of poems, experiments with documentary poetics to uplift stories of black people impacted by state-sanctioned violence. The book's first section weaves Rachel Jeantel's testimony in the Trayvon Martin trial with Kendrick Lamar lyrics, fixed form and found poems, and personal artifacts. The second section centers on the audio of the dashboard recording that captured Sandra Bland's fatal police encounter. Excerpts from this exchange are punctuated with elegies for other dead black women, creating a larger commentary about race and gender- based violence. TESTIFY is ultimately a book of witness. It "burdens" its readers "with knowing." Combined, both chapters serve as an unflinching critique of race and gender supremacy in the United States.
