4 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 1,245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When a bomb tears through the basement of a black Baptist church on a peaceful fall morning, it takes the lives of four young girls; Denise McNair, Carole Robertson, Cynthia Wesley and Addie Mae Collins. This racially motivated crime, taking place at a time when the civil rights movement is burning with a new flame, could have doused that flame forever. Instead it fuels a nation's outrage and brings Birmingham, Alabama to the forefront of America's concern
Repairing the breach : key ways to support family life, reclaim our streets, and rebuild civil society in America's communities : report of the National Task Force on African-American Men and Boys, Andrew J. Young, chairman by National Task Force on African-American Men and Boys( )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report of the National Task Force on African-American Men and Boys is the beginning of an approach to repair society's breaches and restore the streets to safety. The Task Force, headed by Andrew J. Young and established in 1994, conceived its mission as one of reclamation. The Task Force made 61 specific recommendations, and three general recommendations. The first of the general recommendations is that a national work group be established to continue the work of the Task Force. The second is that a philanthropic organization be established that would support all of the major recommendations made by the Task Force, and the third is that a National Conversation on Race Relations be facilitated. The specific recommendations are developed around the following themes: (1)"Polis," a comprehensive idea of the values, manners, morals, and etiquette needed to restructure public life; (2) civic storytelling that honors the ordinary hero who creates public kinship; (3) grassroots civic leadership; (4) creation of the common good; (5) restoring community institutions; and (6) civic dialogue and the exchange of ideas and opinions. Seven appendixes present statements by Task Force leaders, the historical background of the Task Force, references, selected speeches, responses of women to the Task Force, and a discussion of the state of human development. (Contains 12 tables, 6 unnumbered charts, and 18 references.) (Sld)
Citizen King : 1963-1968 by PBS Home Video( Visual )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 1,174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This story begins on the steps on the Lincoln Memorial in August 1963 when a 34-year-old preacher galvanized millions with his dream for an America free of racism. It comes to a bloody end almost five years later on a motel balcony in Memphis, Tennessee. In the years since those events unfolded, the man at the center, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., has become a mythic figure, a minister whose oratory is etched into the minds of millions of Americans, a civil rights activist whose words and image are more hotly contested, negotiated and sold than almost anyone else's in American history
Revolution in higher education : how a small band of innovators will make college accessible and affordable by Richard A DeMillo( )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1,057 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Colleges and universities have become increasingly costly, and, except for a handful of highly selective, elite institutions, unresponsive to 21st-century needs. But for the past few years, technology-fueled innovation has begun to transform higher education, introducing new ways to disseminate knowledge and better ways to learn -- all at lower cost. In this impassioned account, Richard DeMillo tells the behind-the-scenes story of these pioneering efforts and offers a roadmap for transforming higher education. Building on his earlier book, Abelard to Apple, DeMillo argues that the current system of higher education is clearly unsustainable. Colleges and universities are in financial crisis. Tuition rises inexorably. Graduates of reputable schools often fail to learn basic skills, and many cannot find suitable jobs. Meanwhile, student-loan default rates have soared while the elite Ivy and near-Ivy schools seem remote and irrelevant. Where are the revolutionaries who can save higher education? DeMillo's heroes are a small band of innovators who are bringing the revolution in technology to colleges and universities. DeMillo chronicles, among other things, the invention of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) by professors at Stanford and MIT; Salman Khan's Khan Academy; the use of technology by struggling historically black colleges and universities to make learning more accessible; and the latest research on learning and the brain. He describes the revolution's goals and the entrenched hierarchical system it aims to overthrow; and he reframes the nature of the contract between society and its universities. The new institutions of a transformed higher education promise to demonstrate not only that education has value but also that it has values -- virtues for the common good

Witness to change : from Jim Crow to political empowerment by Sybil Haydel Morial( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1950s New Orleans, a young woman steps into a white tulle gown and glides through her parents' home into the front garden. Her father, a respected surgeon, drives her downtown, where she will make her debut into black society. Though mesmerized by the ritual, Sybil Haydel, seventeen, cannot help noting the irony in a world where she daily faces the barriers of Jim Crow. Thirteen years later, Sybil lies sleepless next to her husband, Dutch Morial. Medgar Evers, NAACP field secretary, has been murdered in Mississippi. Dutch, the organization's New Orleans' president, has just received another death threat. In whispers, he and Sybil discuss how to protect their three children. The Morials become legal, then political, activists. Testing Brown v. Board of Education, Sybil attempts to enroll at Tulane and Loyola. She and Dutch challenge a statute restricting political activities of public-school teachers. Barred from the League of Women Voters, Sybil forms an organization to help register African Americans held back from voting. After serving as judge and Louisiana legislator, Dutch is elected New Orleans' first black mayor. Sybil's memoir reveals a woman whose intelligence overrides the clichés of racial division. In its pages, we catch rare glimpses of black professionals in an earlier New Orleans, where the races, though socially isolated, lived side by side; when social connections helped to circumvent Jim Crow; when African-American culture forged New Orleans--and American--identity. Through loving eyes, Sybil traces the rise of her sons and daughters: After Dutch's death, Marc Morial, serves two terms as New Orleans mayor"--Provided by publisher

Through darkness to light : photographs along the underground railroad : a photographic essay by Jeanine Michna-Bales( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"They left in the middle of the night-- often carrying little more than the knowledge to follow the North Star. An estimated one hundred thousand slaves between 1830 and the end of the Civil War in 1865 embarked on a journey of untold hardship in search of freedom, many with the aid of the Underground Railroad. Through Darkness to Light : Seeking Freedom on the Underground Railroad imagines how this journey may have appeared through a series of atmospheric and evocative photographs by Jeanine Michna-Bales. From over a decade's worth of research, Michna-Bales pieced together a route of Underground Railroad sites from the cotton plantations just south of Natchitoches, Louisiana, all the way north to the Canadian border, a path encompassing roughly two thousand miles. Complementing Michna-Bales' compelling photographs are essays on the history and figures of the Underground Railroad by Fergus M. Bordwich, Robert F. Darden, and Eric R. Jackson"--
