BOOK EXCERPT:

"Detroit Rich Boys" tells the story of James Mussellistine, better known as Muscles to his friends, a young teenager from the west side of Detroit. He ended up being part of the original Puritan Avenue gang known as the PAs. Although he was raised in a middle-class neighborhood off Six Mile Road, the young gangster couldn't stop hanging out with the likes of Niddy and Roni, two friends from across Puritan Road. When Muscles and his friends enroll in Mumford, Detroit's most volatile school, the roller-coaster lifestyle of gangbanging rolls from the school strait to the streets. The Puritan Gang was the poorest gang in the school, and their numbers were weak compared to their legendary rivals, the Six, Seven, Eight Mile Gangs. Even so, Mumford's Puritan leaders, the PAs, arose from virtual anonymity to become one of the most dangerous neighborhood gangs in Detroit history. "Once upon a time Detroit was once considered the promise land for black people in America. By the1980s, however, Detroit had become the land of bondage, where people were enslaved by drugs, poverty, and violence. From the Lunatic Assassins and the 8 mile Sconies to the Black Killers and the PAs. The streets of the Westside are all here." Al Profit Murder City

BOOK EXCERPT:

Critical Race, Feminism, and Education provides a transformative next step in the evolution of critical race and Black feminist scholarship. Focusing on praxis, the relationship between the construction of race, class, and gender categories and social justice outcomes is analyzed. An applied transdisciplinary model - integrating law, sociology, history, and social movement theory - demonstrates how marginalized groups are oppressed by ideologies of power and privilege in the legal system, the education system, and the media. Pratt-Clarke documents the effects of racism, patriarchy, classism, and nationalism on Black females and males in the single-sex school debate.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Even before the massive European immigrations of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Detroit had a tradition of Catholicism. Multiple immigrant groups became part of the city and considered it important to educate their daughters as well as their sons within the Church. JoEllen McNergney Vinyard's comprehensive examination of parochial education in Detroit within the broader context of that city's urbanization patterns yields a richly detailed addition to our understanding of the European immigrant experience. For Faith and Fortune will be of interest to historians and scholars of urban studies, particularly immigration, schooling, and the Catholic experience.
