Space Is the Place: The Lives and Times of Sun Ra Audiobook

Space Is the Place: The Lives and Times of Sun Ra

Author: John Szwed Narrator: Leon Nixon Release Date: November 2021

Considered by many to be a founder of Afrofuturism, Sun Ra-aka Herman Blount-was a composer, keyboardist, bandleader, philosopher, entrepreneur, poet, and self-proclaimed extraterrestrial from Saturn. He recorded over 200 albums with his Arkestra, which, dressed in Egypto-space costumes, played everything from boogie-woogie and swing to fusion and free jazz. John Szwed's Space is the Place is the definitive biography of this musical polymath, who was one of the twentieth century's greatest avant-garde artists and intellectuals. Charting the whole of Sun Ra's life and career, Szwed outlines how after years in Chicago as a blues and swing band pianist, Sun Ra set out in the 1950s to impart his views about the galaxy, black people, and spiritual matters by performing music with the Arkestra that was as vital and innovative as it was mercurial and confounding. Szwed's listeners-whether they are just discovering Sun Ra or are among the legion of poets, artists, intellectuals, and musicians who consider him a spiritual godfather-will find that, indeed, space is the place.

Black Theology and Black Power Audiobook

Black Theology and Black Power

Author: James H. Cone Narrator: Leon Nixon Release Date: November 2021

First published in 1969, Black Theology and Black Power is the first systematic presentation of black theology that also introduced the voice of a young theologian who would shake the foundations of American theology. Relating the militant struggle for liberation with the gospel message of salvation, James Cone laid the foundations for an interpretation of Christianity from the perspective of the oppressed that retains its urgency and challenge today. In an earlier preface to this classic Cone wrote: 'This book was my initial attempt to identify liberation as the heart of the Christian gospel and blackness as the primary mode of God's presence. I wanted to speak on behalf of the voiceless black masses in the name of Jesus whose gospel I believed had been greatly distorted by the preaching and the theology of white churches.'

Yemaya: Orisha, Goddess, and Queen of the Sea Audiobook

Yemaya: Orisha, Goddess, and Queen of the Sea

Author: Raven Morgaine Narrator: Leon Nixon Release Date: October 2021

Yemaya, queen of the sea, first emerged in Yorubaland (now in modern Nigeria). A primordial deity, considered the mother of all, she is perceived by some to be at the root of numerous ancient goddesses, including Isis. During the Middle Passage, Yemaya accompanied her enslaved devotees to the Western Hemisphere, where her eventual association with the Virgin Mary helped her veneration take root and flourish. No longer a local water spirit, she is among the most beloved and prominent spirits of Candomblé, Santeria, and other African diaspora traditions. Raven Morgaine, a priest of Yemaya for over three decades, shares his expertise and knowledge in this guidebook, the first full-length English-language book to focus on her. Exploring her history and many forms, including her roles as mother, lover, witch, warrior, and mermaid, he describes Yemaya's many paths, aspects, and incarnations, as well as her special role in the LGBTQ community. In addition to exploring her mythology, this accessible book is also a hands-on guide to working with Yemaya and includes the following: - Spells and rituals associated with Yemaya, appropriate for the uninitiated - Instructions for building altars and shrines for Yemaya, as well as other methods for working with her, including correct, respectful ways to make appropriate offerings - Recipes that will please Yemaya - A detailed list of flowers, herbs, and other botanicals that radiate the power of Yemaya

Unconscious Bias in Schools: A Developmental Approach to Exploring Race and Racism, Revised Edition Audiobook

Unconscious Bias in Schools: A Developmental Approach to Exploring Race and Racism, Revised Edition

Author: Sarah E. Fiarman, Tracey A. Benson Narrator: Leon Nixon Release Date: September 2021

In Unconscious Bias in Schools, two seasoned educators describe the phenomenon of unconscious racial bias and how it negatively affects the work of educators and students in schools. In order to address this bias, the authors argue, educators must first be aware of the racialized context in which we live. Unconscious Bias in Schools provides education leaders with an essential roadmap for addressing these issues directly. The authors draw on the literature on change management, leadership, critical race theory, and racial identity development, as well as the growing research on unconscious bias in a variety of fields, to provide guidance for creating the conditions necessary to do this work-awareness, trust, and a 'learner's stance.' Benson and Fiarman also outline specific steps toward normalizing conversations about race; reducing the influence of bias on decision-making; building empathic relationships; and developing a system of accountability. All too often, conversations about race become mired in questions of attitude or intention-'But I'm not a racist!' This book shows how information about unconscious bias can help shift conversations among educators to a more productive, collegial approach that has the potential to disrupt the patterns of perception that perpetuate racism and institutional injustice.
