Summary : "Willie J. Harrell's We Wear the Mask focuses its attention upon the most recent and influential Dunbar scholarship, and in doing so refreshes our vision of the man, the artist, his work, and how intensely he skillfully maneuvered his way through the dangerous political, social, and aesthetic pitfalls of dialect and standard English. This volume not only asks but requires us to rethink the African American voices as well as the characters Dunbar infused with vitality and life. He was able to shed the light of humanity upon the African American community more than any other writer who came before him and in doing so richly influenced all the writers who came after him. We are in Dunbar's debt and likewise in the debt of Professor Harrell for assembling this richly energetic and demanding volume."---Herbert Woodward Martin, Professor Emeritus of English, University of Dayton, and The Paul Laurence Dunbar Laureate Poet for Dayton, Ohio "These essays make outstanding contributions to the growing body of important commentary on Dunbar's work. Professor Harrell's introduction brings us into new regions of the political statements Dunbar made in complex ways. The wide range of issues covered here is very impressive."---Ronald Primeau, author of Herbert Woodward Martin and the African American Tradition in Poetry A Prolific Nineteenth-Century Author, Paul Laurence Dunbar was the first African American poet to gain national recognition. Praised by Booker T. Washington, W. E. B. Du Bois, and Frederick Douglass, who called him "the most promising colored man in America," Dunbar intrigued readers and literary critics with his depictions of African Americans' struggle to overcome a legacy of slavery and prejudice. His remarkably large body of work---he wrote eleven volumes of poetry, four short story collections, five novels, three librettos, and a play before his death at thirty-three---draws on the oral storytelling traditions of his ex-slave mother as well as his unconventional education at an all-white public school to explore the evolving identity of the black community and its place in post-Civil War America. Willie Harrell has assembled a collection of essays on Dunbar's work that builds on the research published over the last two decades. Employing an array of approaches to Dunbar's poetic creations, these essays closely examine the self-motivated and dynamic effect of his use of dialect, language, rhetorical strategies, and narrative theory to promote racial uplift. They situate Dunbar's work in relation to the issues of advancement popular during the Reconstruction era and against the racial stereotypes proliferating in the early twentieth century while demonstrating its relevance to contemporary literary studies. We Wear the Mask will appeal to scholars and students of African American literature and poetry, as well as those interested in one of the most celebrated and widely taught African American authors.

Summary : As a social role the concept of the persona is useful in allowing an individual to move in and out of relationships without being too vulnerable. A persona can be the oil to ease potential social friction. A persona provides for some predictability of relationship, but wearing a mask may become a sub-personality preventing us from embracing our true spiritual identity.

Summary : Here is a book as joyous and painful, as mysterious and memorable, as childhood itself. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings captures the longing of lonely children, the brute insult of bigotry, and the wonder of words that can make the world right. Maya Angelou’s debut memoir is a modern American classic beloved worldwide. Sent by their mother to live with their devout, self-sufficient grandmother in a small Southern town, Maya and her brother, Bailey, endure the ache of abandonment and the prejudice of the local “powhitetrash.” At eight years old and back at her mother’s side in St. Louis, Maya is attacked by a man many times her age—and has to live with the consequences for a lifetime. Years later, in San Francisco, Maya learns that love for herself, the kindness of others, her own strong spirit, and the ideas of great authors (“I met and fell in love with William Shakespeare”) will allow her to be free instead of imprisoned. Poetic and powerful, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings will touch hearts and change minds for as long as people read. “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings liberates the reader into life simply because Maya Angelou confronts her own life with such a moving wonder, such a luminous dignity.”—James Baldwin From the Paperback edition.

Summary : At 30 years old, Lewis Howes was outwardly thriving but unfulfilled inside. He was a successful athlete and businessman, achieving goals beyond his wildest dreams, but he felt empty, angry, frustrated, and always chasing something that was never enough. His whole identity had been built on misguided beliefs about what "masculinity" was. Howes began a personal journey to find inner peace and to uncover the many masks that men – young and old – wear. In The Mask of Masculinity, Howes exposes the ultimate emptiness of the Material Mask, the man who chases wealth above all things; the cowering vulnerability that hides behind the Joker and Stoic Masks of men who never show real emotion; and the destructiveness of the Invincible and Aggressive Masks worn by men who take insane risks or can never back down from a fight. He teaches men how to break through the walls that hold them back and shows women how they can better understand the men in their lives. It's not easy, but if you want to love, be loved and live a great life, then it's an odyssey of self-discovery that all modern men must make. This book is a must-read for every man – and for every woman who loves a man.

Summary : In today’s world, image is everything! Imagine navigating through childhood and your adult life carrying the baggage of being bullied or called a sissy because you were unable to stand up for yourself. Lyman Montgomery lived that life and suffered great and consistent losses. Before age of 14, he was sexually abused by a trusted teacher and experienced the death of two of his grandparents-one of which took her own life. Lyman kept silent about his abuse, avoided dealing with the grief of his father’s death by never mentioning him, associated with people who were better off financially, developed unhealthy relationships with women, performed as others expected, used accomplishments to feel better about himself and projected a religious lifestyle that was not rooted in righteousness. Shattered Masks: 7 Masks We Wear is an autobiographical account of how masks are made in a young person's life. It is also a self-study to help you identify the mask makers in your life and to shatter the masks you’ve grown accustomed to wearing.

Summary : Standing at that magical place where sand meets sea, you likely have imagined putting a message in a bottle, consigning it to the waves, hoping it might some day reach another shore, and then not only be read but, incredibly across space and time, make a difference in other lives now connected to your own. It has happened to me, and I must sing of it. In the autumn of 1966 I let the waves carry off a poem—passed around to students, family and friends, no need for even my name on it. Its message was simple: Keep heart, you are not alone; love, stronger than strong walls, will come, helping your heart in hiding grow wings, feeble perhaps at first, but wings! Word astoundingly began to come back in 1969, and has continued since, that “Please Hear What I’m Not Saying” was indeed reaching other shores, across space and time was indeed making a difference in other lives. What follows attests to the power of words from the heart to touch other hearts, sometimes even to change other lives. Read on. You, too, will sing of it.
