For Every Black Eye

Author:C.F. Hawthorne

Kill him ." I lifted my throbbing head from my knees and glanced around the bedroom. I know I heard a voice. "Kill him," echoed through the room once again. I looked to my left, then my right. Slowly I raised my aching body from the floor. With each painful step I took, the bathroom seemed miles away. I had to lean against the door frame to keep from falling. Jacob, my husband, had beaten me so badly this time I felt drunk. I reached for the sink and propped my hip against the cool white porcelain, closing my eyes momentarily trying to ease the pain and the nightmare of my reality. It was no use. My reality was a nightmare. I stared at my reflection in the bathroom mirror. My brown eyes were now sunken into dark shadows. The whites of my eyes had red streaks running through them like a state road map. When I spit into the sink, I watched a tooth dance around the porcelain before descending down the drain. Bracing myself with both hands and closing my eyes as the memory of Jacob's fist surged through my body like a demon, I shook my head. Staring at my face once again in the medicine cabinet mirror before opening it, I whispered, "He didn't mean it." I told the sad reflection staring back at me. "He told me so, and I believe him, again. "Flinching, I reached into the medicine cabinet. The pain raced up my arm and stopped in my neck. He didn't mean it. "Kill him, "

Killing In the Name of Love

Author:Alvin Morrow

Alvin Morrow takes readers on a 6-year journey in which he dissects the lingering effects of slavery on the heart of the Black nation-the Black family! he explains every way that America is Killing In the Name of Love; from the way the Black man and woman relate to one another and to our children to the foods we take into our bodies, to the education we take into our minds, to the religion we take into our souls. The result is that the Black Family has been forced to struggle for survival in the midst of the most underrated form of genocide in human history. During this time, when corruption, immorality and mental darkness have become the order of the day, comes a book that promises to provide readers with the light needed to safely guide nation through this hour of grave darkness. In this book, Alvin Morrow gives birth to clear solutions brought about through the pain of laboring for a people rise. The staff at RSP offers with deep humility, not just a scholastic writing, but a service.

The Autobiography of DMX

Author:DMX (Earl Simmons), Smokey D. Fontaine
DMX is an international superstar who has sold more than twenty-million albums and defined hip-hop culture better than any of his peers. He also lived the kind of rags-to-riches story that has molded some of the best American heroes. From a smart and mischievous young boy to a teenager dubbed "Crazy Earl" to the most feared MC on the street, DMX never stopped struggling for the kind of life he knew belonged to him. Born in Yonkers, New York, to a father who abandoned him and a mother ill equipped to raise her only boy, Earl Simmons grew to hate and distrust the world around him. But a passionate talent to rhyme gave him a dream, while a lifelong companionship with stray dogs gave him the strength to go on. His journey of self-discovery began with beatings, robbery, and group homes, lead to jails, car chases, gun battles, and rap wars, and culminated in commitment, love, fame, and fortune. This is the extraordinary first-person account of a man who gives expression to the thoughts and feelings of those who have never been heard. In the process, Earl Simmons became a father, a husband, a role model, and an international icon know as DMX. This is his story.

Growing Up King

Author:Dexter Scott King, Ralph Wiley (Contributor)
A memoir of great style, exploration, and impact. "I was born worried. I was born anxious," writes the third child of Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King. Itís not surprising. Even in the beginning, when "we were kids just running around" in the bitterly segregationist Atlanta of the early 1960s, "a lot did rub off on us, just through osmosis, being in the environment, the SCLC conventions where Aretha Franklin sang." When Dexter was six, his father was killed. "Hope went out of many lives. We were not alone in that, and never would be alone in it from then on." Imagine the pressures: The requirement of being pious moral exemplar; the "if only Iíd been more like my father" guilt; the failure to finish college; the love of music that earned him the black-sheep tag; the "extra oomph in my feelings of failure when I didnít follow in his exact footprints." There would be highs and lows: the cruel politics of the King Center; the authorís inability to sustain a commitment because of his experience of what happens when you love somebody and they are taken away. But there were also his fights to secure the intellectual-property rights of his father and to try to learn the full circumstances of the assassination, both efforts that earned him the calumny of vested interests. Throughout, the memoir is wonderfully written: stories are nested within stories, pulled forward through history with a disarming openness--King is still very much a work in progress. Thereís a lightness to his touch and a subversiveness to his humor. For all his black-sheep status, the author has found grace and purpose, and has stayed aware of his own identity, even when it was truly out of focus

The Assassination of the Black Male Image

Author:Earl Ofari Hutchinson

An earlier self-published version of this book by Hutchinson, who commented on the O.J. Simpson trial for CBS News, sold 30,000 copies, perhaps accounting for this breakthrough into a major publishing house (his previous books came out from small presses). But the first few chapters, each of which is really an independent essay, offer few clues to the volume's popularity. He suggests that readers persuade the media to cover the full spectrum of black life, not merely crime/violence/"hood" stories; he urges them to boycott music, videos and comedians, etc. who demean black images and to buy "positive black-oriented products" from black-owned stores and organizations.
