Her dream of dreams : the rise and triumph of Madam C.J. Walker by Beverly Lowry( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 1,089 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By breathing life into scattered clues and dry facts, and with a deep understanding of the times and places through which Madam Walker moved, tells a story that stretches from the antebellum South to the Harlem Renaissance and bridges nearly a century of our history in her search for the distant truths of a woman who defied all odds and redefined conventional expectations. Annotation. Lowry (creative nonfiction, George Mason U.) tells how a child born in a sharecropper's cabin to former slaves invented a hair- care product for African-American women, sold it successfully in a city she had just moved to, turned her little business into an empire, renovated a Harlem townhouse, filled it with treasures, and entertained there the most influential figures of her time

Who killed these girls? : cold case : the yogurt shop murders by Beverly Lowry( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the author of Crossed Over, another masterful account of a horrible crime: the murder of four girls, countless other ruined lives, and the evolving complications of the justice system that frustrated the massive attempts--for twenty-five years now--to find and punish those who committed it. The facts are brutally straightforward. On December 6, 1991, the naked, bound-and-gagged bodies of the four girls--each one shot in the head--were found in an I Can't Believe It's Yogurt! shop in Austin, Texas. Grief, shock, and horror spread out from their families and friends to overtake the city itself. Though all branches of law enforcement were brought to bear, the investigation was often misdirected and after eight years only two men (then teenagers) were tried; moreover, their subsequent convictions were eventually overturned, and Austin PD detectives are still working on what is now a very cold case. Over the decades, the story has grown to include DNA technology, false confessions, and other developments facing crime and punishment in contemporary life. But this story belongs to the scores of people involved, and from them Lowry has fashioned a riveting saga that reads like a Russian novel, comprehensive and thoroughly engrossing"--
