Radical Islam is pursuing the souls of African American men. This book urges the African American community to wake up and take action now. According to author Carl F Ellis, Jr there are five pivotal questions African American Christians must ask and answer: What is Islam? Why has Islam developed so successfully in the African American community? How to protect our churches and communities from Islam's pursuit? How should the Christian community respond to Islam? What should be the Christian community's long-term goals? This is a direct examination of the issues and responds to these and other critical questions with facts, suggestions and ideas that will help readers begin to address Islam's ever-growing challenge to African American congregations and communities.

naked on a nighttime street corner and the boys who sped off with his clothes as
my sons. What else was I to do? So I urge us to tell our sons every day, over

When Marita Golden decided to write her personal account of the challenges of raising a black son in today's world, she didn't intend to write more than her own faily's story. But through the story of raising her son against the backdrop of a racially divided society, Golden discovered she was also confronted the causes of the violence that surrounds African-American men. In the fierecely lryical and revealing narrative of Saving Our Sons, she has created a work of profound and lasting importance−one that sensitively and uniquely addresses the problems of boyhood and emerging manhood. It is a book that issues a clarion call: The survival of our cities, if not our society, depends on our finding a way to save our sons.

Player. Jock. Slacker. Competitor. Superhero. Goofball. Boys are besieged by images in the media that encourage slacking over studying; competition over teamwork; power over empower - ment; and being cool over being yourself. From cartoons to video games, boys are bombarded with stereotypes about what it means to be a boy, including messages about violence, risktaking, and perfecting an image of just not caring. Straight from the mouths of over 600 boys surveyed from across the U.S., the authors offer parents a long, hard look at what boys are watch ing, reading, hearing, and doing. They give parents advice on how to talk with their sons about these troubling images and provide them with tools to help their sons resist these mes sages and be their unique selves.

Jongens doen het in school niet zo goed. Een open deur intrappen lijkt het wel. Maar de auteur van dit boek vindt dat er nog niet genoeg aandacht is besteed aan de scholingsachterstand van Amerikaanse jongens. Meer meisjes dan jongens halen een universitair diploma. Tijdens de recente crisis waren het vooral laaggeschoolde mannen die hun job verloren. Kortom ook op de arbeidsmarkt doen vrouwen het beter. Hoog tijd om te onderzoeken wat de redenen zijn voor de desinteresse van jongens in het onderwijs. Bij het zoeken naar antwoorden kijkt de auteur ook naar voorbeelden en oplossingen in landen zoals het Verenigd Koninkrijk en Australië.

Michael Gurian's blockbuster bestseller The Wonder of Boys is the bible for mothers, fathers, and educators on how to understand and raise boys. It has sold over 400,000 copies, been translated into 17 languages, and sells over 25,000 every year, which is more than any other book on boys in history. To follow up on this first book, which launched the boy's movement, he has now written this revolutionary new book which confronts what he and a lot of other parents and teachers in this country truly believe to be a "boy's crisis". Here are the facts: Boys today are simply not learning as well as girls Boys receive 70% of the Ds and Fs given all students Boys cause 90% of classroom discipline problems 80% of all high school dropouts are boys Millions of American boys are on Ritalin and other mind-bending control drugs Only 40% of college students are boys And three out of four learning disabled students are boys So what can we do? Gurian has the answer in this enormously fascinating and practical book which shows parents and teachers how to help boys overcome their current classroom obstacles by helping to create the proper learning environment, understand how to help boys work with their unique natural gifts, nurture and expand every bit of their potential, and enabling them to succeed in life the way they ought to. Gurian presents a whole new way of solving the problem based on the success of his program in schools across the country, the latest research and application of neuro-biological research on how boys' brains actually work and how they can learn very well if they're properly taught. Anyone who cares about the future of our boys must read this book.

Selected as one of the Top 5 Educational Books by Literacy News The signs and statistics are undeniable: boys are falling behind in school. Contrary to conventional wisdom, the biggest culprits are not video games, pop culture, or female-dominated schools biased toward girls. The real problem is that boys have been thrust into a bewildering new school environment that demands high-level reading and writing skills long before they are capable of handling them. Lacking the ability to compete, boys fall farther and farther behind. Eventually, the problem gets pushed into college, where close to 60% of the graduates are women. In a time when even cops, construction foremen, and machine operators need post-high school degrees, that's a problem. Why Boys Fail takes a hard look at how this ominous reality came to be, how it has worsened in recent years, and why attempts to resolve it often devolve into finger-pointing and polarizing politics. But the book also shares some good news. Amidst the alarming proof of failure among boys-around the world-there are also inspiring case studies of schools where something is going right. Each has come up with realistic ways to make sure that every student-male and female-has the tools to succeed in school and later in life. Educators and parents alike will take heart in these promising developments, and heed the book's call to action-not only to demand solutions but also to help create them for their own students and children.

Today, young Black men are more likely to be killed or sent to prison than to graduate from college. Yet, despite all the obstacles, some are achieving at the highest academic and professional levels. Beating the Odds tells their remarkable stories and shows us what African American families have done to raise academically successful sons, sons who are among the top two percent of African American males in terms of SAT scores and grades. The result of extensive and innovative research, Beating the Odds goes beyond mere analysis--and beyond the relentlessly negative media images--to show us precisely how young Black men can succeed despite the roadblocks of racism, the temptations of crime and drugs, and a popular culture that values being "cool" over being educated. By interviewing parents and children from a range of economic and educational backgrounds and from both single and two-parent homes, the authors identify those constants that contribute to academic achievement and offer step-by-step guidance on six essential strategies for effective parenting: child-focused love; strong limit-setting and discipline; continually high expectations; open, consistent, and strong communication; positive racial identity and positive male identity; and full use of community resources. The proof of the effectiveness of such strategies is in the sons themselves, who speak eloquently in these pages about their struggles and successes in both the classroom and the often hostile world that surrounds it. Essential reading for parents, teachers, and school administrators, Beating the Odds offers insight, guidance, and hope for anyone concerned about the plight of young African American men and the society they live in.

Walk Together Children: Black and Womanist Theologies, Church, and Theological Education draws on the long religious, cultural, and singing history of blacks in the U.S.A. Through the slavery and emancipation days until now, black song has both nurtured and enhanced African American life as a collective whole. Communality has always included a variety of existential experiences. What has kept this enduring people in a corporate process is their walking together through good times and bad, relying on what W. E. B. DuBois called their "dogged strength" to keep "from being torn asunder." Somehow and someway they intuited from historical memory or received from transcendental revelation that keeping on long enough on the road would yield ultimate fruit for the journey.

One evening in 1994, writer Brooke Stephens was listening to the news while working on a tribute to her grandfather for an upcoming family reunion. The evening's newscast began with three negative reports about black men--as rapists, muggers and murderers. The contrast between the black men on the news and the black man she was writing about suddenly seemed enormous. Where were the black men she knew? Stephens wondered. Why were they never featured on the evening news? Never publicly discussed or shown? From these questions, the idea for Men We Cherish was born. Waiting to Exhale and the Million Man March to the contrary, good black men are neither fantasy nor unanswered prayer. In Men We Cherish, thirty African American women celebrate these everyday heroes: fathers and grandfathers, brothers and best friends, sons and husbands. These essays, memoirs, and love letters offer moving portraits of the three-out-of-four black men who never make the headlines. The men in the lives of established black women writers, including Bebe Moore Campbell, Gloria Wade-Gayles, Charlayne Hunter-Gault, and the Delany sisters, reflect the diversity, honesty, generosity and depth that is the reality of African American men. With Men We Cherish, Brooke Stephens has created a groundbreaking collection that stands alone in the market as a literary memoir, a social critique, and an affirmation of faith. From the Trade Paperback edition.

CHANGES is the story of a family in crisis; it is the story of an immigrant family trying to cope with life in urban America, about the trauma that cross-cultural conflicts bring, the pressure to conform or do your own thing, against the backdrop of todays America. In order to integrate into the mainstream, or for that matter, pursue the American Dream, can an immigrant family maintain their identity, their native lifestyle, in the turbulent ambiance of urban America or do they succumb to its pressures and change their lifestyle altogether? These are the fundamental questions that most immigrants face, and have to deal with. Many succeed; others fail, while a few just hang in there. The main characters are Ebo, the husband and father; Christina, the wife and mother, and Chris and Lisa, two teenage kids, aged sixteen and eighteen. In the face of overwhelming odds, Ebo tries to maintain control of the family, and tries to do it the only way he knows how; the old fashioned way. Along the way, he runs into a few characters that expose him to some of the diversity on the American social, cultural and political landscape.
