Brotherman : the odyssey of black men in America( Book )

6 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 1,306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this extraordinary anthology is made abundantly clear by the editors' stated intention: "to create a living mosaic of essays and stories in which Black men can view themselves, and be viewed without distortion." In this, they have succeeded brilliantly. Brotherman contains more than one hundred and fifty selections, some never before published--from slave narratives, memoirs, social histories, novels, poems, short stories, biographies, autobiographies, position papers, and essays. Brotherman books us passage to the world that Black men experience as adolescents, lovers, husbands, fathers, workers, warriors, and elders. On this journey they encounter pain, confusion, anger, and love while confronting the life-threatening issues of race, sex, and politics--often as strangers in a strange land. The first collection of its kind, Brotherman gathers together a multitude of voices that add a new, unforgettable chapter to American cultural identity

The Port Chicago mutiny by Robert L Allen( Book )

7 editions published between 1989 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 897 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During World War II, Port Chicago was a segregated naval munitions base on the outer shores of San Francisco Bay. Black seamen were required to load ammunition onto ships bound for the South Pacific under the watch of their white officers--an incredibly dangerous and physically challenging task. On July 17, 1944, an explosion rocked the base, killing 320 men--202 of whom were black ammunition loaders. In the ensuing weeks, white officers were given leave time and commended for heroic efforts, whereas 328 of the surviving black enlistees were sent to load ammunition on another ship. When they refused, fifty men were singled out and charged--and convicted--of mutiny. It was the largest mutiny trial in U.S. naval history. First published in 1989, The Port Chicago Mutiny is a thorough and riveting work of civil rights literature, and with a new preface and epilogue by the author emphasize the event's relevance today

Spectacular teamwork : how to develop the leadership skills for team success by Robert R Blake( Book )

7 editions published in 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In modern organizations, the vast majority of people work in teams, and achieving successful results depends on how well people combine their efforts. This timely book explores the dynamics of teamwork and the basic dimensions by which a team's performance can be measured. Through realistic depictions of seven different team cultures, each with characteristics that readers can recognize in their own organizations, the authors analyze typical approaches and illustrate what works, what doesn't, and how to build a team that is strong and positive. The seventh illustration provides a concrete example of an excellent team which serves as a model towards thinking about the real issues of effective teamwork. Each illustration comes with a series of diagnostic scales to evaluate how closely the readers' team matches the example. Blake and Mouton are the authors of The Managerial Grid, which has sold more than a million copies and has been used by hundreds of managers to help analyze their managerial style
Strong in the struggle : my life as a black labor activist by Lee Brown( Book )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brown spent more than two years in federal prison but his militancy and commitment to the struggle for workers' rights and civil rights remained undiminished." "Strong in the Struggle tells the powerful story of the political awakening of Brown as a youth from the rural South; his life from childhood among poor black farmers, his encounters with the Jim Crow system of racial segregation and racial violence, his discovery of the changes that could be won when working people organized into unions, his rise to leadership and his time of imprisonment, and his continuing advocacy of the ideals of racial equality and socialism."--Jacket
The Obama phenomenon : toward a multiracial democracy( Book )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Barack Obama's campaign and electoral victory demonstrated the dynamic nature of American democracy.

The Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters : C.L. Dellums and the fight for fair treatment and civil rights by Robert L Allen( Book )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"C. L. Dellums and the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters helped to precipitate a sea of change in labor and race relations in California and the nation. Fundamental issues of unfair employment practices, discrimination, and segregation were confronted in new ways with consequences for all Americans. For the first time in U.S. history, a black labor union played a central role in shaping labor and civil rights policy. Based on interviews and archival research, this new book tells the story of Dellums and the impact nationally of his groundbreaking work. The BSCP, the first national union of black workers, was founded in 1925. C. L. Dellums, who worked as a porter in Oakland, became the West Coast organizer and was elected vice president in 1929. He held that position until 1968, when he succeeded A. Philip Randolph as president. In 1937, the BSCP made history when it compelled one of the largest U.S. corporations —the Pullman Company— to recognize and negotiate a contract with a black workers’ union. This was unprecedented and almost inconceivable in the context of prior U.S. history. In 1941, at the beginning of World War II, the leadership of the BSCP, with the support of civil rights leaders, pushed U.S. President Roosevelt to issue Executive Order 8802 requiring the ending of racial discrimination in defense industries. Tens of thousands of black men and women would be hired to work alongside whites in wartime plants across the nation. C. L. Dellums was not only a labor leader. In 1948, he was chosen to be the first West Coast Regional Director of the NAACP. He also led the long struggle to get a fair employment practices law passed in California. The successful struggle contributed to the emergence of civil rights activism nationally and to equal treatment legislative initiatives in California and elsewhere."--Publisher's website
