But as the days add up, with no sign of Daddy, Lulu struggles to take care of all the responsibilities they used to manage as a family. Lulu knows that all it takes is one slip-up for their secret to come spilling out, for Lulu and Serena to be separated, and for all the good things that have been happening in school to be lost.

Download or read book Carry Me Home written by Diane McWhorter and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2001-06-29 with total page 704 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Now with a new afterword, the Pulitzer Prize-winning dramatic account of the civil rights era’s climactic battle in Birmingham as the movement, led by Martin Luther King, Jr., brought down the institutions of segregation. "The Year of Birmingham," 1963, was a cataclysmic turning point in America’s long civil rights struggle. Child demonstrators faced down police dogs and fire hoses in huge nonviolent marches against segregation. Ku Klux Klansmen retaliated by bombing the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church, killing four young black girls. Diane McWhorter, daughter of a prominent Birmingham family, weaves together police and FBI records, archival documents, interviews with black activists and Klansmen, and personal memories into an extraordinary narrative of the personalities and events that brought about America’s second emancipation. In a new afterword—reporting last encounters with hero Reverend Fred Shuttlesworth and describing the current drastic anti-immigration laws in Alabama—the author demonstrates that Alabama remains a civil rights crucible.

Download or read book We Are Becoming the Problem Now! written by Michael Abayomi Alabi and published by Christian Faith Publishing, Inc.. This book was released on 2019-02-09 with total page 230 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: When we leave our destiny in the hands of others and live our life in the past, we immediately destroy our future. Scientists in the human genome industry have proved that all humans are 99.9 percent the same. Why then are some ethnicities progressive and others nonprogressive? Our current problems are not with the slave or colonial masters. We Are Becoming the Problem Now! Had we continued in the legacy of our ancestors simply known as slaves, we ought to have been the pride and joy of the whole world. They went through unimaginable pain, sorrow, hardship, and torment. They survived and even succeeded by leaving a godly legacy behind in the Negro spiritual songs and in arts, education, industry, and every conceivable field. Our current major problems as blacks in Africa and all over the world simply put are leadership and disunity. We do the dirty work by self-destroying ourselves and each other. Only few illiterate Caucasian would engage in overt discrimination. The majority of us have been trained in the art and act of covert self-destruction and in the destruction of the whole. We have so much zeal but without knowledge. We must bear in mind that zeal without knowledge is dead, so also knowledge without zeal is equally lifeless (Romans 10:2). Not until we harness our zeal and knowledge comprehensively can we live a progressive life. It has been said that if the West is to stand still and halt all development and progress, Africa would never catch up. Yet we have PhDs in every conceivable field. Do we blame that on the ancestors of the slave or colonial masters? No! We are to be blamed. We Are Becoming the Problem Now! Those who have ears to hear, let them hear because time is of the essence.

Download or read book The Elephants Graveyard written by D.C. Murphy and published by Author House. This book was released on 2014-11-22 with total page 279 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Elephants Graveyard is like an epitaph without a tombstone.--Officer Kevin Martin, SFPD The Elephants Graveyard is the city's skid row--the Tenderloin District of San Francisco. It's a purgatory for the junkies and shadowy characters that frequent the dark alleys, bars, and fleabag hotels on the dark side of the city by the bay. But to some, it's a sacred place to hide out, to fall off the face of God's green earth, and never be found. And like the old African elephants who journeyed to a secret place to die, Rooster journeyed into the Tenderloin, and his bones will never be found. Sean Patrick Murphy walked into the Mill Valley Police Department for the first time back in 1971. Things were different back then, and had he known what he knows now, he would have turned around and walked right back out the door. Mill Valley was the best-kept secret in Marin County. White powder cocaine, marijuana, hot-tub orgies, and rock 'n' roll were all part of the scene. It was all fun and games until the Colombians moved in and ruined everything. The Sweetwater Bar took over as the West Coast cocaine connection, and the Medellín cartel started murdering anyone who stood in their way, including police officers. The twisting tale of corruption and greed took Murphy into the seedy underworld of a life he came to loathe. It was the drugs, extortion, philandering, and a ruined relationship that turned his life into a living hell. But somewhere along the way, Rooster snapped out of the slump he had fallen into. By the late seventies, the Colombians had been driven out of Mill Valley and into hiding. The Sweetwater Bar had been shut down, and top-ranking police officials had become the target of a federal RICO investigation. A special task force led by Officer Sean Murphy, dubbed "Rooster" by his peers, and the FBI went after the bad guys with a vengeance. And the dirty cops on the MVPD were on the top of list. By 1980, the United States attorney had indicted all of the players in the RICO investigation--Colombians and cops. But the Colombians and the owner of the Sweetwater, Lance Larkin, had fled to Bogotá and into the arms of the feared drug lord, Pablo Valencia. Finally, in 1982, extradition warrants were issued, charging Javier Valencia (son of Pablo Valencia) and Lance Larkin with racketeering, drug dealing, and murder. But the Colombians reacted violently, beheading a Supreme Court justice and vowing to kill everyone connected to the investigation. It was trouble all right. But when the Colombians crossed the line and kidnapped Rooster's four-year-old daughter, everything changed. All bets were off. And it didn't take long for the Colombians to become the victims. The Elephants Graveyard is the sequel to Rooster: A Badge, Gun, and Heartache.

Download or read book "Thy Kingdom Come" written by T. M. Schryver and published by WestBow Press. This book was released on 2015-05-22 with total page 226 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “ . . . Surely, I come quickly.” - Revelation 22:20 When Christ was with His disciples prior to the beginning of the Church at Pentecost, He taught them the great doctrines that they should know and pass on after His death and resurrection. Among those important teachings were the fact that every man and woman are sinners; all need the Savior to be their own Redeemer; and that He, Jesus Christ will come to earth a second time to set up and rule over His earthly Kingdom. For three centuries these were the main teachings of the Church. Then, around 300 A.D., some men opposed many of Christ’s teachings, especially concerning His promise about the coming Kingdom on the earth and caused this great doctrine to be removed from the Church. The coming Millennial Kingdom is the leading subject of the preaching of John the Baptist, Jesus Christ, and the Apostles. It’s teaching embraces a larger portion of Scripture revelation than all other subjects combined! If you’re a Christian, you need to be looking for Christ’s call to you heavenward. He’s “even at the door!” Hopefully, this book will help to get you ready to meet Christ when He calls – and it will be sooner than you think!

Full of vivid illustrations and with each verse reproduced, here are a multitude of surprising stories you won’t be able to resist passing on to everyone you know.
