Black Gods of the Asphalt: Religion, Hip-Hop, and Street Basketball Audiobook

Black Gods of the Asphalt: Religion, Hip-Hop, and Street Basketball

Author: Onaje X. O. Woodbine Narrator: Mirron Willis Release Date: April 2022

J-Rod moves like a small tank on the court, his face mean, staring down his opponents. 'I play just like my father,' he says. 'Before my father died, he was a problem on the court. I'm a problem.' Playing basketball for him fuses past and present, conjuring his father's memory into a force that opponents can feel in each bone-snapping drive to the basket. On the street, every ballplayer has a story. Onaje X. O. Woodbine, a former streetball player who became an all-star Ivy Leaguer, brings the sights and sounds, hopes and dreams of street basketball to life. He shows that big games have a trickster figure and a master of black talk whose commentary interprets the game for audiences. The beats of hip-hop and reggae make up the soundtrack, and the ballplayers are half-men, half-heroes, defying the ghetto's limitations with their flights to the basket. Basketball is popular among young black American men but not because, as many claim, they are 'pushed by poverty' or 'pulled' by white institutions to play it. Black men choose to participate in basketball because of the transcendent experience of the game. Through interviews with and observations of urban basketball players, Onaje X. O. Woodbine composes a rare portrait of a passionate, committed, and resilient group of athletes who use the court to mine what urban life cannot corrupt. If people turn to religion to reimagine their place in the world, then black streetball players are indeed the hierophants of the asphalt.

Reconciling All Things: A Christian Vision for Justice, Peace and Healing Audiobook

Reconciling All Things: A Christian Vision for Justice, Peace and Healing

Author: Chris Rice, Emmanuel Katongole Narrator: Mirron Willis Release Date: April 2022

Our world is broken and cries out for reconciliation. But mere conflict resolution and peacemaking are not enough. What makes real reconciliation possible? How is it that some people are able to forgive the most horrendous of evils? And what role does God play in these stories? Does reconciliation make any sense apart from the biblical story of redemption? Secular models of peacemaking are insufficient. And the church has not always fulfilled its call to be agents of reconciliation in the world. In Reconciling All Things Emmanuel Katongole and Chris Rice, codirectors of the Center for Reconciliation at Duke Divinity School, cast a comprehensive vision for reconciliation that is biblical, transformative, holistic, and global. They draw on the resources of the Christian story, including their own individual experiences in Uganda and Mississippi, to bring solid, theological reflection to bear on the work of reconciling individuals, groups, and societies. They recover distinctively Christian practices that will help the church be both a sign and an agent of God's reconciling love in the fragmented world of the twenty-first century. This powerful, concise book lays the philosophical foundations for reconciliation and explores what it means to pursue hope in areas of brokenness in theory and practice.

Letter to a Stranger: Essays to the Ones Who Haunt Us Audiobook

Letter to a Stranger: Essays to the Ones Who Haunt Us

When Colleen Kinder put out a call to writers to answer the question, what stranger haunts you? she knew she had opened the floodgates. The responses, short and addictive, all in the form of letters, all written in the second person, began pouring in her and website column “Letter to a Stranger” was born. Now Kinder has selected the most extraordinary of these responses, solicited plenty more from formidable cast of writers as diverse themselves as the strangers—and places—they invoke. The essays in Letter to a Stranger are organized around intriguing themes such as Mystery, Gratitude, Wonder, Remorse, and Farewell, and what energizes them all is the quest to unpack a common underlying mystery: How can an encounter so ephemeral leave such an eternal mark? Each letter allows us to travel in time, in place, and in away each essay is a ghost. Bestselling author Leslie Jamison, who provides a foreword to the collection, has long been haunted by a traveling magician she met years ago in Nicaragua; Journalist Ted Conover writes his missive to a stranger he met on a New Yorker assignment in Rwanda in 1993. Travel writer Lavinia Spalding remembered a Dutchman she met in Thailand. There is a letter from a playwright; a student; a novelist; a poet. A letter to a lost child, a bodyguard, a woman on a subway, a man named Sick. From Elizabeth Kolbert’s Peruvian loner climbing at high altitude Gregory Pardlo’s drunk stranger in Avignon to Pico Iyer’s lost trishaw driver in Myanmar, these stories are replete with observations about how to live and what to seek, how a stranger’s loaded glance, shared smile, or question posed can change and alter even the seemingly ordinary hours of our lives.

Getting to the Promised Land: Black America and the Unfinished Work of the Civil Rights Movement Audiobook

Getting to the Promised Land: Black America and the Unfinished Work of the Civil Rights Movement

Author: Kevin W. Cosby Narrator: Mirron Willis Release Date: March 2022

Too often, all oppressed people in America are lumped together under the moniker people of color, as if each group's experience under the yoke of systemic racism has the same economic and social repercussions. But the American Descendants of Slavery (ADOS) hold a unique claim to economic and reparative justice: for ADOS, after all, is the only group whose ancestors were forcibly brought to America, enslaved, built much of the wealth of the country, yet continue to be specifically excluded from the same social, political, and economic rights of other Americans. To that end, Rev. Dr. Kevin W. Cosby lays out the first theology of the ADOS movement, turning the traditional lens of Black liberation theology from Moses leading escaped Hebrew slaves in Exodus to other biblical leaders like Solomon, Daniel, and Nehemiah. In the stories of Nehemiah and other biblical leaders, Cosby finds inspiration on how to rebuild Black America including the necessity of government reparations for ADOS. Cosby calls all Americans to move from a place of relative nonengagement and detachment to a place of active support of ADOS's efforts for justice and healing.

Culturally Responsive School Leadership Audiobook

Culturally Responsive School Leadership

Author: Muhammad Khalifa Narrator: Mirron Willis Release Date: January 2022

Culturally Responsive School Leadership focuses on how school leaders can effectively serve minoritized students-those who have been historically marginalized in school and society. The book demonstrates how leaders can engage students, parents, teachers, and communities in ways that positively impact learning by honoring indigenous heritages and local cultural practices. Muhammad Khalifa explores three basic premises. First, that a full-fledged and nuanced understanding of 'cultural responsiveness' is essential to successful school leadership. Second, that cultural responsiveness will not flourish and succeed in schools without sustained efforts by school leaders to define and promote it. Finally, that culturally responsive school leadership comprises a number of crucial leadership behaviors, which include critical self-reflection; the development of culturally responsive teachers; the promotion of inclusive, anti-oppressive school environments; and engagement with students' indigenous community contexts. Based on an ethnography of a school principal who exemplifies the practices and behaviors of culturally responsive school leadership, the book provides educators with pedagogy and strategies for immediate implementation.
