Color Complex: The Politics of Skin Color among African Americans
Kathy E. Russell
0385471610
October 1993
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Drawing on interviews, history and sociology, the authors--a black woman, a white woman and a black man--ably survey the highly charged issue of discrimination among blacks on the basis of skin color. Their focal points range from miscegenation in colonial America to the historical role of the light-skinned elite in black churches and universities to trends in the hiring of black actors and models. The issues are complex: multiracial people debate whether they should consider themselves black or white, and a case of alleged "color harassment" has even reached the federal courts. Finally, as these authors persuasively argue, "Nearly everything the Blackstet cap woman (or man) does to her (or his) stet parens appearance is interpreted politically." Russell is a scriptwriter and poet; Wilson teaches psychology and...

Your Negro Tour Guide: Truths In Black and White
Kathy Y. Wilson
1578601436
June 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Wilson, a newspaper columnist and commentator for NPR, slices into the reader’s consciousness with sharp, staccato sentences in short, vivid essays that speak for the marginalized-mainly blacks, but also women, the working class and homosexuals. As a "Lone Other," a black lesbian who dropped out of college, Wilson has borne a threefold stigma, and her self-perception as an outsider was a key influence on her career as a journalist. Acutely aware of the power of language, Wilson writes with razor-sharp candor and amusing irreverence-to amplify her voice, to divest mainstream America of its monopoly on thought and culture, to "whittle through and then reclaim tired stereotypes." This collection of riffs and sketches devotes an entire section to Cincinnati city corruption, while other segments touch on topics...

Book Review
With the voice of a young girl participating in the nightly rituals of Hanukkah, Cathy Goldberg Fishman introduces children to the history and beliefs behind this eight-day Jewish celebration. Starting with the first night of Hanukkah she lights a menorah candle with the "helper candle called the shammash." When her mother speaks of the Assyrian soldiers who captured the Jews' Holy Temple and put out the eternal light of the menorah, the young girl thinks of the Jewish people "who fought for many years to rededicate the temple and bring the light back." Later, while playing dreidel on the seventh night, the girl's grandfather tells the story of Jews not being allowed to "celebrate our religion or read our holy books. Jews who did not want the light of our knowledge lost would still get together and study. They played...

The Mystery of Eatum Hall

From School Library Journal
Starred Review. Grade 1-5–A comically dense couple named Horace and Glenda Pork-Fowler (a pig and a goose, of course) receives an invitation from Dr. Hunter, the new owner of Eatum Hall, "…for a weekend of free gourmet food!" Exclamation points abound in this pun-filled excursion to an English manor that's crammed with all sorts of ominous items, including knives, axes, oil paintings of animals being devoured by wolves, and a Walter Crane portrait of Red Riding Hood. High tech mixes with an old-fashioned mystery as the food-loving couple is instructed by the absent host to partake in "…a fully automated dining experience." Robotic devices serve the Pork-Fowlers delicious meals, but observant readers will catch glimpses of other machines designed for more predatory uses. In the end, the...
