Summary : Rikers Island is the centerpiece of the New York City Department of Corrections, a sprawling prison city of concrete and steel with housing for more than 16,000 inmates. Early in 1995, it was also the temporary home of legendary rapper and actor Tupac Shakur, incarcerated for a crime he swore he did not commit. And it was there that Angela Ardis, acting on a late-night wager among her friends and coworkers, sent a letter, along with a photo and her phone number. To her utter delight and amazement, Angela's phone rang a short while later. Tupac Shakur was on the line. Over the next several months, Angela and Tupac shared a near-daily exchange of letters, poems and phone calls, and their the relationship quickly grew into something neither of them could quite define, a kinship of souls that touched each in unexpected ways. Those original poems and letters, many of them written after Tupac's transfer from Rikers to Dannemora State Prison, are presented here, along with the increasingly passionate and personal phone calls that touched on every subject imaginable. Far from the media spotlight, Tupac was by turns playful, sensual and serious, offering sharp observations on prison, music and the uncertainties of life. His letters to Angela reflect how he felt about being shot five times and left for dead one terrible night in New York in 1994, and his heartfelt verse encapsulates his dreams for the future--a future that would be so tragically cut short just over eighteen months after their correspondence began. Tupac Shakur was shot on September 7th, 1996 and died a week later from his injuries. His murder remains unsolved, an ending as enigmatic as his life. But while Tupac may be gone, his words live on here, giving every fan a rare glimpse inside the mind and unbroken spirit of a passionate and unpredictable musical icon. Angela Ardis is an author, screenwriter, actress and model.

Summary : Author's abstract: This study explores the educational experiences of Black girls who attended a predominantly White school in Southeast Georgia from the perspective of a Black female administrator. Using Critical Race Theory (e.g. Bell, 1987, 1992, 1995; Delgado & Stefancic, 2001; Solorzano & Yosso, 2001) and Black Feminist Thought (e.g. Hill Collins, 2000; hooks, 1984/2000) as theoretical frameworks and memoir (Angelou, 1969/2009; Hurston, 1996) and fiction (Bell, 1992; Morrison, 1970/1993) as methodology, I explore ways in which Black girls are oppressed when they attend majority White public schools. Six meanings emerged from this inquiry: (1) Writing my memoir has allowed me to critically look at my past and recognize that my experiences have affected many aspects of my life including my job as an educator. (2) CRT and BFT allows me to use my counterstory to challenge a dominant perspective held about schools. (3) Black Feminist Thought affirms that like other Black, women educators (collectively) experience oppression when they are silenced by their positions, yet also they have a desire to advocate against the subordination of themselves and students (Hill Collins, 2000). (4) BFTT asserts that historically, there are commonalities among the struggles of Black women (Hill Collins, 2000). (5)BFT connects the public schooling of experiences Black girls with the larger issues of the criminalization of Black girls and the school to prison pipeline. (6) Like many others, I am guilty of perpetuating the marginalization of Black students before I gained an awareness of the nature of public school for Black girls.

Summary : In 1996 Tupac Shakur, one of the most talented artists of his time, was murdered by an unknown gunman. Fred L. Johnson and Tayannah Lee McQuillar examine the theories surrounding his death and the story of Tupac's lost legacy in this definitive biography. For millions, Shakur gave voice to their stories, but there was also another side to him, revealed as his life spun out of control, as the whispered warnings from friends went unheeded and the denunciations of critics grew louder. Disturbingly, he sang and wrote about his impending death. When it came, it brought the music industry to its knees and ended an era when American rappers were leaders in using their art to speak the truth to corporate, government, and judicial power.

Summary : Tupac: The Modern-Day Messiah is a courageous attempt to connect the late Tupac Shakur's intricate lyricism and profound interviews into a variety of societal flaws including, but not up to, racial oppression, police brutality, and economic inequality. Throughout the book, Andrew brings a unique approach of correlating Tupac's message with The Black Panther movement, W. E. B. Du Bois, Afeni Shakur, Malcolm X, Brown vs. Board as well as Plato's Cave Allegory Theory. The book's most unique aspect lies in how presumptive thought suggests that Tupac foreshadowed much of the flaws in present-day America. From Malcolm X, to Martin Luther King to Tupac Shakur, the consistent theme is how progressive ideologists traditionally die early for their beliefs. While Tupac's physical body is no longer present, his spirit lives on forever. This book is a valiant attempt at carrying out Tupac's legacy.

Summary : Zadie Smith’s dazzling debut caught critics grasping for comparisons and deciding on everyone from Charles Dickens to Salman Rushdie to John Irving and Martin Amis. But the truth is that Zadie Smith’s voice is remarkably, fluently, and altogether wonderfully her own. Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read At the center of this invigorating novel are two unlikely friends, Archie Jones and Samad Iqbal. Hapless veterans of World War II, Archie and Samad and their families become agents of England’s irrevocable transformation. A second marriage to Clara Bowden, a beautiful, albeit tooth-challenged, Jamaican half his age, quite literally gives Archie a second lease on life, and produces Irie, a knowing child whose personality doesn’t quite match her name (Jamaican for “no problem”). Samad’s late-in-life arranged marriage (he had to wait for his bride to be born), produces twin sons whose separate paths confound Iqbal’s every effort to direct them, and a renewed, if selective, submission to his Islamic faith. Set against London’ s racial and cultural tapestry, venturing across the former empire and into the past as it barrels toward the future, White Teeth revels in the ecstatic hodgepodge of modern life, flirting with disaster, confounding expectations, and embracing the comedy of daily existence.
