When they call you a terrorist : a Black Lives Matter memoir by Patrisse Khan-Cullors( Book )

15 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 1,786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Raised by a single mother in an impoverished neighborhood in Los Angeles, Patrisse Khan-Cullors experienced firsthand the prejudice and persecution Black Americans endure at the hands of law enforcement. For Patrisse, the most vulnerable people in the country are Black people. Deliberately and ruthlessly targeted by a criminal justice system serving a white privilege agenda, Black people are subjected to unjustifiable racial profiling and police brutality. In 2013, when Trayvon Martin's killer went free, Patrisse's outrage led her to co-found Black Lives Matter with Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi. Condemned as terrorists and as a threat to America, these loving women founded a hashtag that birthed the movement to demand accountability from the authorities who continually turn a blind eye to the injustices inflicted upon people of Black and Brown skin. Championing human rights in the face of violent racism, Patrisse is a survivor. She transformed her personal pain into political power, giving voice to a people suffering inequality and a movement fueled by her strength and love, to tell the country -- and the world -- that Black Lives Matter

4 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Asha bandele is simply one of the finest and most emotionally honest American poets at work today, with few peers in terms of the open, unfiltered narrative style. Moreover, elements of William Shakespeare's tragedies, Sylvia Plath's melancholy and despair, and Ntozake Shange's triumphs in the face of horrible tribulations all season bandele's polyrhythmic stew. Read asha bandele's work and be prepared to be uplifted, teased, mocked, confronted, saddened, angered, and, most assuredly, transformed. --Kevin Powell

Patrisse Khan-Cullors, die Mitbegründerin der neuen Bürgerrechtsbewegung #BlackLivesMatter, erzählt in diesem Buch vom Aufwachsen in einem Land, das von Armut, Ungleichheit und rassistischer Polizeigewalt geprägt ist. Sie schildert, wie sie Menschen begegnet, die entschlossen sind, Amerika zu verändern. Gemeinsam mit ihnen fordert sie eine neue Antwort auf eine alte Frage: Wie viel zählt ein schwarzes Leben? Als im Sommer 2013 der Nachbarschaftswachmann George Zimmerman, der den 17-jährigen schwarzen Schüler Trayvon Martin erschossen hat, freigesprochen wird, entsteht in den USA eine neue Bürgerrechtsbewegung unter dem Hashtag #BlackLivesMatter. In diesem Buch erzählt die Mitbegründerin ihre Geschichte. Patrisse Khan-Cullors wird in einem der ärmsten Viertel von Los Angeles geboren. Schon als kleines Mädchen erlebt sie den grundlegenden Unterschied, den ihre Hautfarbe bedeutet: in der Schule, in Freundschaften, in der Nachbarschaft. Der Zusammenhalt in ihrer Familie wird immer wieder auf die Probe gestellt – ihre Eltern, Verwandten und Geschwister kämpfen verzweifelt gegen die Folgen von Polizeigewalt, Ausbeutung in McJobs, Drogensucht, Rassismus und staatlicher Willkür. Auf dem Weg in ein selbstbestimmtes und freies Leben helfen ihr Kunst, Bildung und große Offenheit für andere Menschen. Ein Netzwerk entsteht, dessen Engagement über den Kampf gegen Rassismus hinausgeht. In eindringlicher Sprache erzählt Patrisse Khan-Cullors aus dem Alltag eines unbekannten Amerikas. Ihre zutiefst bewegende Geschichte hat eine einfache Botschaft: #BlackLivesMatter

Not for Sale A Teachers' Guide to Commercialism in the Classroom by Asha Bandele( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As funding for public education decreases, corporations are "making up" the shortfall by donating seemingly benign teaching aides to schools. While many business-school relationships are positive, many others are commercializing classrooms, aiming to make students "brand-loyal" through the guise of providing free equipment, more information, and new interactive curricula. Some students and parents view the increasing commercialization of public education masked as educational curricula as a form of exploitation and created an organization called UNPLUG to demonstrate their opposition to the "corporate buy-out" of public education. This guide for teachers describes the commodification of youth culture, discusses the impact of classroom commercialism on public education, provides guidelines for conducting anti-commercialism workshops, and presents a lesson plan for teachers on media literacy and critical viewing. Section 1 introduces the problem. Section 2, "Providing a Background and Context for the Work," uses hip hop as an example of the commodification of youth culture, outlines the defunding of public education, and gives examples of the lack of accountability of businesses that operate in schools and successful campaigns against classroom commercialism. Section 3, "The Impact of Channel One and the Classroom Commercialism on the American Public Education System," provides an overview of problems when curricula are controlled by profit-oriented corporation, including challenging the democratic process, undermining public education, increasing the focus on mass consumption, and creating economic dependency. Section 4, "They Say, We Say: Soundbiting the Arguments," provides concise arguments for and against the use of Channel One in school. Section 5, "Conducting Anti-Commercialism Workshops," provides guidelines for conducting training workshops for various groups, and includes information on target audiences, levels of training and support, workshop agenda formats (including classroom periods), and sample agenda. Section 6, "Media Literacy and Critical Viewing," is a lesson plan for critical viewing of Channel One. (KB)
