Across the Way

Author: Mary Monroe Narrator: Adenrele Ojo, Beresford Bennett, James Shippy, Kentra Lynn Release Date: March 2020

Neighborhood tensions reach a breaking point in the finale of New York Times bestselling author Mary Monroe's captivating series that sweeps readers back to 1930's Alabama and into the lives of two neighboring couples whose deceitful friendships and imperfect marriages are just the beginning of their troubles... In this captivating Depression-era set novel by New York Times bestselling author Mary Monroe, two couples find their grudges endangering more than their Alabama small town's deceptive peace . . . When good-time couple Milton and Yvonne Hamilton moved one house over from the respectable-but-restless Odell and Joyce Watson, it was a fast friendship of shared secrets--and secret jealousies and betrayals. Their alliance was bound to crash and burn, but the Hamiltons won't quite let the flame die out, even after scandalous accusations get them arrested... Odell would do anything to be free of his bootlegging, blackmailing, money extorting neighbors and recover the peaceful--and financially prosperous--life he and Joyce once had. But Milton and Yvonne seem to always bounce back from bad luck, and this time they've returned angrier, and greedier, than ever. Determined to get what Odell 'owes' them, the Hamiltons have a big surprise for Joyce too, one that shows how far they will go to get revenge . . . Now pushed past his breaking point, Odell is sure he's got a foolproof plan to end the scheming once and for all. But it soon spirals into lies, shattering violence, and permanent damage that will roil their tranquil community, and alter his and Joyce's world forever . . .

An Agent of Utopia

Author: Andy Duncan Narrator: Andy Duncan, Beresford Bennett Release Date: October 2020

Come meet a Utopian assassin, an aging UFO contactee, a haunted Mohawk steelworker, a time-traveling prizefighter, a yameating Zombie, and a child who loves a frizzled chicken-not to mention Harry Houdini, Zora Neale Hurston, and all their fellow travelers riding the steamer-trunk imagination of a unique twentyfirst-century fabulist. From the Florida folktales that inspired "Daddy Mention and the Monday Skull" (first published in Mojo: Conjure Stories, edited by Nalo Hopkinson) to the imagined story of boxer and historical bit player Jess Willard in World Fantasy Award winner "The Pottawatomie Giant" to Flannery O'Connor's childhood celebrity in "Unique Chicken Goes in Reverse," Duncan juxtaposes historical figures with marvels and confabulations. This new and selected volume of Duncan's best features two new stories, "Joe Diabo's Farewell"-in which a gang of Native American ironworkers in 1920s New York City go to a show-and the title story where he reveals what really (might have) happened to Thomas More's head.

Attacking the Rim: My Journey from NBA Legend to Business Leader to Big-City Mayor to Mentor

Author: Dave Bing Narrator: Beresford Bennett Release Date: January 2021

A remarkable narrative of both chance and purpose that touches all corners of society to tell the improbable tale of one man looking for something greater A young, Black kid from a hardworking family in one of the poorest sections of Washington, DC, despite being legally blind in one eye, leaps to the pinnacle of his sport: the Hall of Fame. A rookie bank teller rises to become one of the nation's most celebrated Black business leaders. A once-reluctant political neophyte answers the call to become a major of America's most troubled big city, and he establishes a mentoring program for African American boys that serves as a model for the nation. All of these stories belong to Dave Bing. In Attacking the Rim, Bing shares this multifaceted personal saga, with a rare combination of modesty, moxie, and powerful self-belief. Reflecting on his playing days with the Detroit Pistons, Washington Bullets, and Boston Celtics, Bing takes readers inside the exciting world of pro basketball at the moment when sensational athletes were turning a low-budget game into a high-powered, multimillion-dollar entertainment spectacle. From inside the Detroit mayor's office, he offers a firsthand look at the city's monumental challenges, including intractable debt and corruption, massive unemployment, woeful city services and infrastructure, and the daily choices between the lesser of evils. And finally, he takes us through the mentoring foundation he's created, cutting through the red tape of charitable work to achieve fundamental change in the young men of Detroit. Dave Bing's story is one of unbelievable perseverance and success, and in it he shares the lessons for personal growth and excellence he's learned along the way.

Bivouac Audiobook

Bivouac

Author: Kwame Dawes Narrator: Beresford Bennett Release Date: April 2019

When Ferron Morgan's father dies in suspicious circumstances, his trauma is exacerbated by the conflict within his family and among his father's friends over whether the death was the result of medical negligence or if it was a political assassination. Ferron grew up in awe of his father's radical political endeavors, but in later years he watched as the resurgence of the political right in the Caribbean in the 1980s robbed the man of his faith. Ferron's response to the death is further complicated by guilt, particularly over his failure to protect his fiancee from a brutal assault. He begins to investigate the direction of his life with great intensity, in particular his instinct to keep moving on and running from trouble. This is a sharply focused portrayal of Jamaica at a tipping point in its recent past, in which the private grief and trauma condenses a whole society's scarcely understood sense of temporariness and dislocation.

Fighting Time

Author: Amy Banks, Isaac Knapper Narrator: Beresford Bennett, Christina Moore Release Date: November 2021

Unaware of the danger lurking on the periphery of the French Quarter, Drs. Ronald Banks and John Hakola made a tragic decision on the evening of April 29, 1979, to walk several blocks from the historic district to the Hyatt Regency. Inches from the safety of their hotel, they were accosted by two young men-a scuffle ensued, a shot was fired, and Dr. Banks lay dead on the sidewalk. Fighting Time is a tale of two families whose lives became entangled in that moment of trauma. Isaac Knapper, a sixteen-year-old boy from a nearby housing project, was wrongfully convicted of the murder and sentenced to life imprisonment without parole in the Louisiana State Penitentiary. In Maine, the Banks family believed justice had been served by Isaac's conviction, and his exoneration in 1992 unleashed a sea of confusion and grief. In 2015, Dr. Banks' daughter, Amy, a psychiatrist and trauma specialist, realized it was time to unpack her own family trauma. After learning details of the prosecutorial misconduct, Amy and her sister, Nancy, traveled to New Orleans to meet the man wrongfully convicted of killing their father. In Fighting Time Isaac Knapper and Amy Banks narrate the story of their thirty-sixyear journey from murder to meeting with clarity, humility, and vulnerability.

Getting Something to Eat in Jackson: Race, Class, and Food in the America South Audiobook

Getting Something to Eat in Jackson: Race, Class, and Food in the America South

Author: Joseph C. Ewoodzie Jr. Narrator: Beresford Bennett Release Date: October 2021

A vivid portrait of African American life in today's urban South that uses food to explore the complex interactions of race and class Getting Something to Eat in Jackson uses food-what people eat and how- to explore the interaction of race and class in the lives of African Americans in the contemporary urban South. Joseph Ewoodzie Jr. examines how "foodways"-food availability, choice, and consumption-vary greatly between classes of African Americans in Jackson, Mississippi, and how this reflects and shapes their very different experiences of a shared racial identity. Ewoodzie spent more than a year following a group of socioeconomically diverse African Americans-from upper-middle-class patrons of the city's fine-dining restaurants to men experiencing homelessness who must organize their days around the schedules of soup kitchens. Ewoodzie goes food shopping, cooks, and eats with a young mother living in poverty and a grandmother working two jobs. He works in a Black-owned BBQ restaurant, and he meets a man who decides to become a vegan for health reasons but who must drive across town to get tofu and quinoa. Ewoodzie also learns about how soul food is changing and why it is no longer a staple survival food. Throughout, he shows how food choices influence, and are influenced by, the racial and class identities of Black Jacksonians. By tracing these contemporary African American foodways, Getting Something to Eat in Jackson offers new insights into the lives of Black Southerners and helps challenge the persistent homogenization of blackness in American life.
