The Uplifting of Black Women through Literature
56,50 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The present work is the result of my natural and eternal inquietude in relation to issues concerning Black people's stories and on Black people's histories, which were not written, heard, spoken and/or revealed. Being a black woman made me think about the absence and/or erasure of Black heroes as well as of Black heroines of the pages of Literature and of History books. Yet, in 2010, I encountered the "treasure": I found Black people talking about Black issues in all kinds of interesting texts: in Literature, in History, in articles. Therefore, bearing in mind my intention to bring a kind of literature produced by Black people, mainly Black women writers, as well as the searching for writers who made use of literature as a hopeful space, interweaving fiction and fact, history and literature, providing us with alternative discourses, I decided on two influential writers, the African Americans, Frances E. W. Harper and Pauline E. Hopkins. Harper and Hopkins were some of the female voices who joined the chorus of those advocating dignity, equality, respect and uplift for African Americans, mainly for African American Women.

Antifragile
15,80 € *

'Really made me think about how I think' - Mohsin Hamid, author of Exit WestTough times don't last. Tough people do.In The Black Swan, Taleb showed us that highly improbable and unpredictable events underlie almost everything about our world. Here Taleb stands uncertainty on its head, making it desirable, even necessary. The antifragile is beyond the resilient or robust. The resilient resists shocks and stays the same, the antifragile gets better and better.Just as human bones get stronger when subjected to stress and tension, many things in life benefit from stress, disorder, volatility, and turmoil. What Taleb has identified and calls antifragile are things that not only gain from chaos but need it in order to survive and flourish.Antifragile is a blueprint for living in a Black Swan world. Erudite, witty, and iconoclastic, Taleb's message is revolutionary: the antifragile, and only the antifragile, will make it.'The hottest thinker in the world' Bryan Appleyard, Sunday Times

While never breaking out as a crossover artist, keyboardist and vocalist Michael Wycoff developed a following as a result of three solid albums he released in the early 80's and a minor hit that was later sampled as part of a major hit. Wycoff first came to the attention of audiences through his participation as a background vocalist on Stevie Wonder's landmark Songs in the Key of Life album in 1976. He worked over the next several years on albums by Natalie Cole and 7th Wonder before being signed by RCA Records' fledgling Black Music division in 1980 (around the time of their signings of other acts such as Evelyn Champagne King and Tavares). TRACKS: 01. Feel My Love 02. Someone Standing By 03. One Alone 04. Do Ya Think 05. Come To My World 06. Just As Long 07. Love Makes Me Sing 08. On The Line 09. No Easy Way 10. You've Got It Coming 11. So Close 12. Tell Me Love 13. I'll Do Anything For You Baby 14. Do It To Me Baby 15. You Are Everything
