Clark : the autobiography of Clark Terry by Clark Terry( )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Compelling from cover to cover, this is the story of one of the most recorded and beloved jazz trumpeters of all time. With unsparing honesty and a superb eye for detail, Clark Terry, born in 1920, takes us from his impoverished childhood in St. Louis, Missouri, where jazz could be heard everywhere, to the smoke-filled small clubs and carnivals across the Jim Crow South where he got his start, and on to worldwide acclaim. Terry takes us behind the scenes of jazz history as he introduces scores of legendary greats--Ella Fitzgerald, Oscar Peterson, Dizzy Gillespie, Dinah Washington, Doc Severinsen, Ray Charles, Thelonious Monk, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Coleman Hawkins, Zoot Sims, and Dianne Reeves, among many others. Terry also reveals much about his own personal life, his experiences with racism, how he helped break the color barrier in 1960 when he joined the Tonight Show band on NBC, and why--at ninety years old--his students from around the world still call and visit him for lessons

Learning to survive : Black youth look for education and hope by Atron Gentry( )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The stories of gang members and former gang members show that positive solutions can be found to the crisis of American urban youth. Personal experiences and challenges similar to those faced by young black students are used to indicate that there is hope. It is evident that poor black youth cannot survive or become part of the mainstream in America without economic improvement. Interviews with gang members and former gang members make it apparent that even the most cynical want to get an education and find the "hope factor." Opening chapters review the crisis state in which urban children exist and the problems of equal education and of race and class in education. Chapters 3 through 5 focus on particular situations, describing the Westside Center in Pasadena (California), some California gangs, and Pace School, Los Angeles County. Chapter 6 reviews institutional racism and renewal and discusses a case study in the Boston (Massachusetts) secondary schools. Chapter 7 presents an agenda to save urban youth through a curriculum of love. (Contains 44 references.) (Sld)
