Capitalism and Slavery Audiobook

Capitalism and Slavery

Author: Eric Williams Narrator: William Andrew Quinn Release Date: April 2022

Brought to you by Penguin. Arguing that the slave trade was at the heart of Britain's economic progress, Eric Williams's landmark 1944 study revealed the connections between capitalism and racism, and has influenced generations of historians ever since. Williams traces the rise and fall of the Atlantic slave trade through the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries to show how it laid the foundations of the Industrial Revolution, and how racism arose as a means of rationalising an economic decision. Most significantly, he showed how slavery was only abolished when it ceased to become financially viable, exploding the myth of emancipation as a mark of Britain's moral progress. 'It's often said that books are compulsory reading, but this book really is compulsory. You cannot understand slavery, or British Empire, without it' Sathnam Sanghera 'Its thesis is a starting point for a new generation of scholarship' New Yorker © Eric Williams 2022 (P) Penguin Audio 2022

Beyond Baseball's Color Barrier: The Story of African Americans in Major League Baseball, Past, Pres Audiobook

Beyond Baseball's Color Barrier: The Story of African Americans in Major League Baseball, Past, Pres

Author: Rocco Constantino Narrator: William Andrew Quinn Release Date: March 2022

A fascinating history celebrating Black players in Major League Baseball from the 1800s through today, with special insight into what the future may hold. In Beyond Baseball's Color Barrier, Rocco Constantino chronicles the history of generations of ballplayers, showing how African Americans have influenced baseball from the 1800s to the present. He details how the color line was drawn, efforts made to erode it, and the progress towards Jackie Robinson's debut-including a pre-integration survey in which players unanimously promoted integration years before it actually happened. Personal accounts and colorful stories trace the exponential growth of diversity in the sport since integration, from a boom in participation in the 1970s to peak participation in the early 1990s, but also reveal the current downward trend in the number of African American players to percentages not seen since the 1960s. Beyond Baseball's Color Barrier not only explores the stories of icons like Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, and Satchel Paige but also considers contributions made by players like Vida Blue, Mudcat Grant, and Dwight Gooden. Exclusive interviews with former players and individuals involved in the game, including the President of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, add first-hand expert insight into the history of the topic and what the future holds.

Encountering God: As a Traveling Papal Missionary of Mercy Audiobook

Encountering God: As a Traveling Papal Missionary of Mercy

Author: Jim Sichko Narrator: William Andrew Quinn Release Date: March 2022

In third grade, we talked about what we wanted to be when we grew up. I raised my hand and said "I want to be the pope!" Everyone laughed. But, hey, if you think about it, I'm still in the running. Encountering God is a collection of Father Jim Sichko's tales about what happened after he left his home parish in the Lexington, Kentucky, diocese to embark on a new role as a papal missionary of mercy. As his former congregation well knew, his warmth, humor, and genuine passion for spreading the message of God's unconditional love made him an ideal choice for the job, and Pope Francis seemed to agree. Here he reveals what it's like to live out of a suitcase (and love it) as he engages in the "Ministry of Encountering"-meeting people face to face, connecting through the shared experiences of daily life, and revealing how God's presence is accessible to us all if we simply open our hearts. Father Jim knows how challenging that can be, but his purpose is to make it easier. He passes along the Holy Father's message that it's not just about what we give up, but what we give-because we all have something to offer, and it costs nothing to be kind. Insightful, inspiring, and frequently funny, Encountering God offers a glimpse into an unusual life-and a call to move from "me" to "we" thinking in a world that sometimes seems determined to drive us apart. This book features forewords by Bishop John Stowe, OFM Conv., and Ed Bastian, CEO of Delta Airlines, and an afterword by Olivia Newton-John.

The Trees: A Novel Audiobook

The Trees: A Novel

Author: Percival Everett Narrator: William Andrew Quinn Release Date: March 2022

An uncanny literary thriller addressing the painful legacy of lynching in the US, by the author of Telephone Percival Everett's The Trees is a must-listen that opens with a series of brutal murders in the rural town of Money, Mississippi. When a pair of detectives from the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation arrive, they meet expected resistance from the local sheriff, his deputy, the coroner, and a string of racist white townsfolk. The murders present a puzzle, for at each crime scene there is a second dead body: that of a man who resembles Emmett Till. The detectives suspect that these are killings of retribution, but soon discover that eerily similar murders are taking place all over the country. Something truly strange is afoot. As the bodies pile up, the MBI detectives seek answers from a local root doctor who has been documenting every lynching in the country for years, uncovering a history that refuses to be buried. In this bold, provocative book, Everett takes direct aim at racism and police violence. The Trees is an enormously powerful novel of lasting importance from an author with his finger on America's pulse.

Called to Reconciliation: How the Church Can Model Justice, Diversity, and Inclusion Audiobook

Called to Reconciliation: How the Church Can Model Justice, Diversity, and Inclusion

Author: Jonathan C. Augustine Narrator: William Andrew Quinn Release Date: March 2022

Nationally recognized speaker and church leader Jay Augustine demonstrates that the church is called and equipped to model reconciliation, justice, diversity, and inclusion. This book develops three uses of the term 'reconciliation': salvific, social, and civil. Augustine examines the intersection of the salvific and social forms of reconciliation through an engagement with Paul's letters and uses the Black church as an exemplar to connect the concept of salvation to social and political movements that seek justice for those marginalized by racism, class structures, and unjust legal systems. He then traces the reaction to racial progress in the form of white backlash as he explores the fate of civil reconciliation from the civil rights era to the Black Lives Matter movement. This book argues that the church's work in reconciliation can serve as a model for society at large and that secular diversity and inclusion practices can benefit the church. It offers a prophetic call to pastors, church leaders, and students to recover reconciliation as the heart of the church's message to a divided world.

Dress Codes: How the Laws of Fashion Made History Audiobook

Dress Codes: How the Laws of Fashion Made History

Author: Richard Thompson Ford Narrator: William Andrew Quinn Release Date: December 2021

For centuries, clothing has been a wearable status symbol; fashion, a weapon in struggles for social change; and dress codes, a way to maintain political control. Dress codes evolved along with the social and political ideals of the day, but they always reflected struggles for power and status. In the 1700s, South Carolina's 'Negro Act' made it illegal for Black people to dress 'above their condition.' In the 1920s, the bobbed hair and form-fitting dresses worn by free-spirited flappers were banned in workplaces throughout the United States, and in the 1940s the baggy zoot suits favored by Black and Latino men caused riots in cities from coast to coast. Even in today's more informal world, dress codes still determine what we wear, when we wear it-and what our clothing means. And even when there are no written rules, implicit dress codes still influence opportunities and social mobility. Silicon Valley CEOs wear t-shirts and flip flops, setting the tone for an entire industry: women wearing fashionable dresses or high heels face ridicule in the tech world and some venture capitalists refuse to invest in any company run by someone wearing a suit. In Dress Codes, law professor and cultural critic Richard Thompson Ford presents an insightful and entertaining history of the laws of fashion from the middle ages to the present day.

Is Christianity the White Man's Religion?: How the Bible Is Good News for People of Color Audiobook

Is Christianity the White Man's Religion?: How the Bible Is Good News for People of Color

Author: Antipas L. Harris Narrator: William Andrew Quinn Release Date: September 2021

As our society increases in ethnic and religious diversity, millennials and the next generation of emerging adults harbor suspicions about traditional Christianity. Many young adults have rejected the Christian faith based on what they've seen in churches, the media, and politics. For them, Christianity looks a lot like a 'white man's religion.' Antipas L. Harris, a theologian and community activist, believes that biblical Christianity is more affirmative of cultural diversity than many realize. In this sweeping social, theological, and historical examination of Christianity, Harris responds to a list of hot topics from young Americans who struggle with the perception that Christianity is detached from matters of justice, identity, and culture. He also looks at the ways in which American evangelicalism may have incubated the race problem. Is Christianity the White Man's Religion? affirms that ethnic diversity has played a powerful role in the formation of the Old and New Testaments and that the Bible is a book of justice, promoting equality for all people. Contrary to popular Eurocentric conceptions, biblical Christianity is not just for white Westerners. It's good news for all of us.

The Dawning of the Apocalypse: The Roots of Slavery, White Supremacy, Settler Colonialism, and Capit Audiobook

The Dawning of the Apocalypse: The Roots of Slavery, White Supremacy, Settler Colonialism, and Capit

Author: Gerald Horne Narrator: William Andrew Quinn Release Date: June 2021

Acclaimed historian Gerald Horne troubles America's settler colonialism's 'creation myth'. August 2019 saw numerous commemorations of the year 1619, when what was said to be the first arrival of enslaved Africans occurred in North America. Yet in the 1520s, the Spanish, from their imperial perch in Santo Domingo, had already brought enslaved Africans to what was to become South Carolina. The enslaved people here quickly defected to local Indigenous populations, and compelled their captors to flee. Deploying such illuminating research, The Dawning of the Apocalypse is a riveting revision of the 'creation myth' of settler colonialism and how the United States was formed. Here, Gerald Horne argues forcefully that, in order to understand the arrival of colonists from the British Isles in the early seventeenth century, one must first understand the 'long sixteenth century'-from 1492 until the arrival of settlers in Virginia in 1607. In retelling the bloodthirsty story of the invasion of the Americas, Horne recounts how the fierce resistance by Africans and their Indigenous allies weakened Spain and enabled London to dispatch settlers to Virginia in 1607. These settlers laid the groundwork for the British Empire and its revolting spawn that became the United States of America.

Africans and Native Americans: The Language of Race and the Evolution of Red-Black Peoples Audiobook

Africans and Native Americans: The Language of Race and the Evolution of Red-Black Peoples

Author: Jack D. Forbes Narrator: William Andrew Quinn Release Date: May 2021

This volume will revise the way we look at the modern populations of Latin America and North America by providing a totally new view of the history of Native American and African American peoples throughout the hemisphere. Africans and Native Americans explores key issues relating to the evolution of racial terminology and European colonialists' perceptions of color, analyzing the development of color classification systems and the specific evolution of key terms such as black, mulatto, and mestizo, which no longer carry their original meanings. Jack Forbes presents strong evidence that Native American and African contacts began in Europe, Africa, and the Caribbean and that Native Americans may have crossed the Atlantic long before Columbus.
