Book Review & Summary:

The definitive oral history of the cult classic Dazed and Confused, featuring behind-the-scenes stories from the cast, crew, and Oscar-nominated director Richard Linklater. Dazed and Confused not only heralded the arrival of filmmaker Richard Linklater, it introduced a cast of unknowns who would become the next generation of movie stars. Embraced as a cultural touchstone, the 1993 film would also make Matthew McConaughey’s famous phrase—alright, alright, alright—ubiquitous. But it started with a simple idea: Linklater thought people might like to watch a movie about high school kids just hanging out and listening to music on the last day of school in 1976. To some, that might not even sound like a movie. But to a few studio executives, it sounded enough like the next American Graffiti to justify the risk. Dazed and Confused underperformed at the box office and seemed destined to disappear. Then something weird happened: Linklater turned out to be right. This wasn’t the kind of movie everybody liked, but it was the kind of movie certain people loved, with an intensity that felt personal. No matter what their high school experience was like, they thought Dazed and Confused was about them. Alright, Alright, Alright is the story of how this iconic film came together and why it worked. Combining behind-the-scenes photos and insights from nearly the entire cast, including Matthew McConaughey, Parker Posey, Ben Affleck, Joey Lauren Adams, and many others, and with full access to Linklater’s Dazed archives, it offers an inside look at how a budding filmmaker and a cast of newcomers made a period piece that would feel timeless for decades to come

Book Summary:

Dear Parents and Teachers, You might ask, Why did we write this book for children? We have realized over the years that it is important to talk with children about difficult issues happening in the world. They do notice them, and they do worry. It is better for them when we, as the adults, bring up these issues in a safe, caring way, allowing them to express their ideas and even their fears. As many as fifteen thousand children in the United States are placed in foster care due to detainment or deportation of a parent. The placement of children in protective care usually lasts as long as the legal proceedings, which could take months. Teachers have little idea of how to work with children with these kinds of emotional challenges. At present, there is a lack of research on the specific ways that the deportation of a parent shapes the children left behind. What we do know, however, is that the separation of families under these kinds of circumstances is certain to have adverse consequences for newborns, grade-school children, and adolescents alike. As parents and educators, we can help all children understand what the children of undocumented immigrants are going through. We hope this book will help them see these children as very like them, with loving families, hopes, and dreams. Estimados padres y maestros Ustedes se preguntarn porque escribimos este libro para los nios. En los ltimos diez aos hemos visto la importancia que tiene el dialogo con los nios acerca de los temas que estn pasando alrededor del mundo. Ellos se dan cuenta y adems se preocupan de los eventos mundiales. Para los nios es mejor que los adultos hablen con ellos estos temas en un ambiente seguro, con cario, para que puedan expresar sus ideas e inclusive sus temores. En los Estados Unidos han Alrededor de 15,000 nios en los sido dados a hogares de acogimiento por los que sus padres han sido deportados of detenidos.1 Estos nios duran en estos hogares hasta que los asuntos legales de los padres se solucionen lo cual puede durar meses. Los maestros tienen poco conocimiento de como trabajar con los nios que tienen esta clase de problemas emocionales. No se han hecho muchas investigaciones del impacto que produce en los nios que sus padres sean deportados. Sin embargo, lo que s sabemos es que la separacin en estas circunstancias de los bebes, nios y adolescentes tienen consecuencias adversas para todos. Como padres y maestros debemos ayudar a entender a los nios las dificultades pasan los nios de los padres indocumentados. Esperamos que este libro ayude a ver que estos nios son como ellos con familias que los quieren, con sueos y esperanzas.

Book Summary:

GOLD MEDALIST OF FOREWORD REVIEWS' 2015 INDIEFAB AWARDS IN WOMEN'S STUDIES What's wrong with black women? Not a damned thing! The Sisters Are Alright exposes anti–black-woman propaganda and shows how real black women are pushing back against distorted cartoon versions of themselves. When African women arrived on American shores, the three-headed hydra—servile Mammy, angry Sapphire, and lascivious Jezebel—followed close behind. In the '60s, the Matriarch, the willfully unmarried baby machine leeching off the state, joined them. These stereotypes persist to this day through newspaper headlines, Sunday sermons, social media memes, cable punditry, government policies, and hit song lyrics. Emancipation may have happened more than 150 years ago, but America still won't let a sister be free from this coven of caricatures. Tamara Winfrey Harris delves into marriage, motherhood, health, sexuality, beauty, and more, taking sharp aim at pervasive stereotypes about black women. She counters warped prejudices with the straight-up truth about being a black woman in America. “We have facets like diamonds,” she writes. “The trouble is the people who refuse to see us sparkling.”

Book Summary:

"THE SMARTEST BOOK OF THE YEAR" (THE WASHINGTON POST) In these provocative, powerful essays acclaimed writer/journalist Jeff Chang (Can’t Stop Won’t Stop, Who We Be) takes an incisive and wide-ranging look at the recent tragedies and widespread protests that have shaken the country. Through deep reporting with key activists and thinkers, passionately personal writing, and distinguished cultural criticism, We Gon’ Be Alright links #BlackLivesMatter to #OscarsSoWhite, Ferguson to Washington D.C., the Great Migration to resurgent nativism. Chang explores the rise and fall of the idea of “diversity,” the roots of student protest, changing ideas about Asian Americanness, and the impact of a century of racial separation in housing. He argues that resegregation is the unexamined condition of our time, the undoing of which is key to moving the nation forward to racial justice and cultural equity.

Book Summary:

An uplifting, lighthearted, and compelling memoir that recounts the author's lifelong spiritual journey. The grief from the passing of his mom is transformed to gratitude, forgiveness, and joy as he moves along the healing path with the help of his dog, Roy. Along the way, the author, Daniel Hertz, becomes a devoted meditation practitioner and an award-winning teacher and counselor. A pivotal part of the journey is a nearly monthlong stay at a mountain shrine in India where Hertz meets a swami who eventually arranges his marriage. The story merges lively classroom scenes from his thirty-one years as a teacher and counselor in the Minneapolis Public Schools with his twenty-six-year adventure as a student and faculty member at the Meditation Center in Minneapolis. Looking back over his life, Hertz sees that true healing began when he accepted that the one thing in life certain to happen is change.

Book Summary:

This book focuses on the hidden pain of abuse, all the lives that it touches, and all the scars left behind; but through it all, you can stand up and say enough and let your voice be heard. Writing this book has helped me to release a lot of anger, pain, and guilt. It deals with the struggle abuse leaves behind. I hope this book can give someone the courage to stand and fight to go on. The pain is heard, but we can be free from it and help keep our children from falling through the system. Maybe this book will help someone come forth and tell their story and not be afraid or ashamed. I have lived it, seen it, and overcome it. By writing this book, it gives me a feeling of self-worth knowing it just might help someone heal.

Book Summary:

Jordan's Journey is the memoir of a childhood cancer survivor. The narrative follows Jordan as he endures treatment for Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma at the age of five, then again at nine when the cancer returns in the form of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. The adult Jordan composes his reminiscences with a straightforward simplicity and equanimity that make his youthful struggle all the more poignant. He outlines his course of treatment at nine: chemotherapy, radiation, a stem cell transplant, and all the terrible accompanying side effects of these therapies. He expresses gratitude for his family's support, his parents' abiding love, and the care he received from doctors and nurses and teachers. Rather than chapters, the memoir is organized into short vignettes. This structure gives his reader brief glimpses into his life as a patient and a child. Moments of good humor enter into the account (memories of his picky eating, music playing, and a joyful trip to the fair just for a turkey leg), as do moments of deep sadness (memories of childhood friends--fellow patients during his seemingly endless stays in the hospital--who passed away). Toward the end of the manuscript, a section of his mother's diary, which is addressed to God, is reproduced. This excursion from Jordan's point of view to his mother's is extremely moving and forms a fitting testament to his mother's care and to the family's faith. The memoir ends inspirationally, with an account of Jordan's subsequent achievements and his advice to others who struggle with cancer.

Book Summary:

This first cultural biography of rap superstar and “master of storytelling” (The New Yorker) Kendrick Lamar explores his meteoric rise to fame and his profound impact on a racially fraught America—perfect for fans of Zack O’Malley Greenburg’s Empire State of Mind. Kendrick Lamar is at the top of his game. The thirteen-time Grammy Award­–winning rapper is just in his early thirties, but he’s already won the Pulitzer Prize for Music, produced and curated the soundtrack of the megahit film Black Panther, and has been named one of Time’s 100 Influential People. But what’s even more striking about the Compton-born lyricist and performer is how he’s established himself as a formidable adversary of oppression and force for change. Through his confessional poetics, his politically charged anthems, and his radical performances, Lamar has become a beacon of light for countless people. Written by veteran journalist and music critic Marcus J. Moore, this is the first biography of Kendrick Lamar. It’s the definitive account of his coming-of-age as an artist, his resurrection of two languishing genres (bebop and jazz), his profound impact on a racially fraught America, and his emergence as the bona fide King of Rap. The Butterfly Effect is the extraordinary, triumphant story of a modern lyrical prophet and an American icon who has given hope to those buckling under the weight of systemic oppression, reminding everyone that through it all—“we gon’ be alright.”
