BOOK EXCERPT:

What do millennial rappers in the United States say in their music? This timely and compelling book answers this question by decoding the lyrics of over 700 songs from contemporary rap artists. Using innovative research techniques, Matthew Oware reveals how emcees perpetuate and challenge gendered and racialized constructions of masculinity, femininity, and sexuality. Male and female artists litter their rhymes with misogynistic and violent imagery. However, men also express a full range of emotions, from arrogance to vulnerability, conveying a more complex manhood than previously acknowledged. Women emphatically state their desires while embracing a more feminist approach. Even LGBTQ artists stake their claim and express their sexuality without fear. Finally, in the age of Black Lives Matter and the presidency of Donald J. Trump, emcees forcefully politicize their music. Although complicated and contradictory in many ways, rap remains a powerful medium for social commentary.

BOOK EXCERPT:

We want our young people to grow up knowing that writing is an important and deeply satisfying life skill, one that helps them make more sense of themselves and their world, one that helps them to communicate effectively. Much more than a skill, writing is the creativity of each child making itself known through the role of author. Unfortunately, too often writing becomes merely an exercise in 'getting words right', or writing to teacher-prescribed tasks. Authorship is much richer than that, it is a means of describing, pondering on, clarifying, questioning, and celebrating aspects of their lives. I've Got Something to Say is the journey of Gail Loane's experiences in the classroom as she learned to teach writing in a way that enabled her students to develop and enjoy their own authorship. Between the pages is the journey-map for teachers - and parents - of primary and secondary school students to successfully assist their young writers to authorship.

Got Something to Say is a compilation of poems written over many years by the author whose thought-provoking words speak to both the beauty and the ugliness of life. An active participant in the civil rights movement, her poems primarily reflect the injustices that plague African Americans and her desire to promote awareness. Her strong beliefs in family and God are well represented as well as her creative expression. Readers will find her language to be strong but sincere, meditative but uplifting, and angry but passionate as she presents her observations on life.

BOOK EXCERPT:

"Regardless of how much money you have, your race, where you live, what religion you follow, you are going through something. Or you already have or you will. As momma always said, "Everybody's got something." So begins beloved Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts's new memoir in which she recounts the incredible journey that's been her life so far, and the lessons she's learned along the way. With grace, heart, and humor, she writes about overcoming breast cancer only to learn five years later that she will need a bone marrow transplant to combat a rare blood disorder, the grief and heartbreak she suffered when her mother passed away, her triumphant return to GMA after her medical leave, and the tremendous support and love of her family and friends that saw her through her difficult times. Following her mother's advice to "make your mess your message," Robin taught a nation of viewers that while it is true that we've all got something -- a medical crisis to face, aging parents to care for, heartbreak in all its many forms --- we've also all got something to give: hope, encouragement, a life-saving transplant or a spirit-saving embrace. As Robin has learned, and what readers of her remarkable story will come to believe as well, it's all about faith, family and friends. And finding out that you are stronger, much stronger, than you think.

BOOK EXCERPT:

"In eleventh grade, John Bowe's cousin Bill asked a classmate to prom. She said no. Bill responded by moving to the family basement--and staying there for the next forty-three years. But in 1992, at the age of fifty-nine, Bill surprised everyone who knew him: he got married. Bowe learned that Bill credited his turnaround to a nonprofit club he'd joined called Toastmasters International. Fascinated by the idea that speech training seemed to foster the kind of psychological well-being more commonly sought through expensive psychiatric treatment, and intrigued by the notion that words could serve as medicine--healing the shy, connecting the disconnected, and mending our frayed social fabric--Bowe sets out to learn for himself what he'd gathered from so many others: when you learn to speak in public, you undergo a profound transformation that has very little to do with standing at a podium"--
