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.

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, "

Journey to the Well

Author:Vashti Murphy

In July 2000, Bishop Vashti M. McKenzie crowned a long career as pastor, broadcaster, and community developer with her election to the bishopric of the African Methodist Episcopal Church-the first time ever a woman has been selected. A powerful minister, a poised and attractive woman, a caring community leader, wife and mother, Bishop McKenzie was the subject of a front-page New York Times profile and communicates her message to tens of thousands each year with her electrifying preaching style. Now, in Journey to the Well, she shares her wisdom with Christian women of all denominations, everywhere.

Journey to the Well takes the biblical story of the Samaritan woman who meets Jesus at the well. It breaks down her experience--and the author's own-into twelve lessons through which a woman can empower herself, conquer adversity, and accomplish great things in her life. Each lesson includes Bible quotations, inspirational sayings, activities, and self-exploratory questions to guide the reader in a transforming return to God, self, and community-breaking through racial, gender, cultural, and ethnic barriers to discover a new, enlightened way of thinking and living.

Foolish/Unfoolish is a collection of vibrant and honest "reflections on love" by R&B singer Ashanti. Ever since she was thirteen years old, Ashanti has kept journals of her poetry, thoughts, and ideas about life and love. Now, in this very personal collection, Ashanti presents her poems about love, along with stories about what (or who) moved her to write them. In Foolish/Unfoolish, Ashanti explores such universal themes as falling head-over heals in love, becoming insanely jealous, feeling broken-hearted, and being single but having hope for the future. In "No Words," she describes being completely addicted to a new boyfriend; in "Ride Out," she captures what it feels like to be joyriding with your man on a hot summer night; in "Insecure," she writes about telling a suspicious boyfriend to stop driving by her house at night to see if her car is there; and in "Us," she delves into the pain of discovering that your man is cheating on you. Spirited, moving and often filled with humor, Ashanti’s poetry and reflections will entertain and surprise as they offer an intimate look into the life of one of today’s most popular performers. These are works that are both lyrical and raw and which tell the truth about love.

Rock My Soul
Black People and Self Esteem

Author:Bell Hooks

World-renowned scholar and visionary bell hooks takes an in-depth look at one of the most critical issues of our time, the impact of low self-esteem on the lives of black people. Without self-esteem everyone loses his or her sense of meaning, purpose, and power. For too long, African Americans in particular have been unable to openly and honestly address the crisis of self-esteem and how it affects the way they perceive themselves and are perceived by others. In her most challenging and provocative book to date, bell hooks gives voice to what many black people have thought and felt, but seldom articulated. She offers readers a clear, passionate examination of the role self-esteem plays in the African-American experience in determining whether individuals or groups succeed or self-sabotage.
