"'Have to keep that smile,' Booker Wright said in the 1966 NBC documentary Mississippi: A Self-Portrait. At the time, Wright spent his evenings waiting tables for whites at a local restaurant and his mornings running his own business. The ripple effect from his remarks would cement Booker as a civil rights icon because he did the unthinkable: before a national audience, Wright described what life truly was like for the black people of Greenwood, Mississippi"--Amazon.co

Help Overcoming Painful Experiences (H.O.P.E.) is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to help people experience a life transformation through their emotional pain so they can live the purpose-filled, victorious life God intended and designed them to live. We set people free from emotional bondage and empower them to live a transformed life. To accomplish our purpose, the H.O.P.E. program was designed to help people 1) resurrect hope, 2) overcome emotional pain from a variety of issues, 3) build a safe and healthy support network, 4) comprehend the truths about God in the midst of pain while exposing and replacing lies, and 5) experience a life transformation through the healing and restorative power of Jesus Christ. Our transformation model consists of three levels. Doorway to H.O.P.E. is Level 1 and centers on Three Truths About Life. These truths are used as encouragement for accepting and beginning God's process of transformation. They also resurrect hope, expose needs and lies, tear down barriers to making healthy changes and "wet appetites" for experiencing how God can transform us through our pain.

BOOKER By Tannie STOVALL Summary The actions begins in 1988 with a trip from Saint Petersburg Russia to France by Kasia Klucznicki and her daughter, Halina in order to visit their aging relative Jeannot who lives in a château in the Tarn Valley. A short time after that, Booker Johnson, the son of black Americans parents born in France who detains both American and French citizenship, flees France for the United States in order to avoid French military service. Booker’s father Johnny, a sharecropper’s son, who became wealthy in France in the early 1960ies, is disappointed with his son’s action. Booker has an excellent French bourgeois education, which clashes with the working class background of his father. An appreciable part of the book is about the mending of relations between father and son. In California, when the Berlin wall was crumbling in 1989, Roy McPherson, a specialist in fabricating high performing computer chips feels that his country the United States will become increasingly arrogant in the future and decides to send industrial secrets to Russia via the internet. Booker quickly became disenchanted with the United States and moves to Mexico where he meets Halina. Halina’s father, Vicktor Klucznicki is working with the Russian litigation but in reality, he is a KGB agent who assignment is procuring industrial technology from the United States. Halina deliberately becomes pregnant by Booker and then elopes with him. When the CIA becomes aware that Klucznicki’s daughter is married to an American, they exploit this fact in order to discover his real activities. During a prolonged visit to Russia, Booker becomes a businessman in order to please his wife who accuses him of being a social parasite. Booker’s father Johnny visits them. Before and after the visit Johnny supplies the CIA with enough information so that a CIA agent, Martinez, can deduce Klucznicki’s activities which leads to the exposure of McPherson plus the dismantling of a Soviet spy ring in the United States. However, Johnny became very fond of the Klucznicki’s and them of him. Klucznicki’s relation with Booker causes him some troubles on his job with the KGB. Booker opens a cabaret similar to one that his father owns in Paris, which causes him to have difficulties with the Russian underworld. The Klucznicki’s were an important family in Galicia in the 19th century. All that is left of their grandeur is the château in the Tarn valley, which they want to preserve in spite of the large debts of its owner. Also, Halina is the last direct descendant of Marek Klucznicki, the most illustrious of their family and they would like for her children to carry the name Klucznicki. In the end, very surprising solutions are found which save the château for the family, gives the name Klucznicki to Halina’s children, save Booker from the Russian Mafia and save Klucznicki’s job with the KGB. McPherson ends up in jail. On one level, the book is about Johnny and his son. Johnny came to Paris on his honeymoon after serving honorably in the Korean’s war. He found life much more agreeable in Paris than in his hometown in Alabama so he decided to stay. He was a good soldier and a loyal American but after experiencing the difference in treatment between Paris and Alabama, he had a long during love-hate relation with the United States. The parts of the novel related by him are sometimes written in a crude language. The books contain a fair amount of technical information about ciphering and deciphering information. It also explains the unique character of the French Stock market during the period it covers. And there are realistic descriptions of the life of the principle character, African American Booker in Russia and in rural France. On another level, the interest of the book, is the interaction between Booker the Klucznicki family. Initially Halina’s family had a gut racial hatred for Booker as they have for Germans, Russians of none Polish descent and

In his 1903 hit "Congo Love Song," James Weldon Johnson recounts a sweet if seemingly generic romance between two young Africans. While the song's title may appear consistent with that narrative, it also invokes the site of King Leopold II of Belgium's brutal colonial regime at a time when African Americans were playing a central role in a growing Congo reform movement. In an era when popular vaudeville music frequently trafficked in racist language and imagery, "Congo Love Song" emerges as one example of the many ways that African American activists, intellectuals, and artists called attention to colonialism in Africa. In this book, Ira Dworkin examines black Americans' long cultural and political engagement with the Congo and its people. Through studies of George Washington Williams, Booker T. Washington, Pauline Hopkins, Langston Hughes, Malcolm X, and other figures, he brings to light a long-standing relationship that challenges familiar presumptions about African American commitments to Africa. Dworkin offers compelling new ways to understand how African American involvement in the Congo has helped shape anticolonialism, black aesthetics, and modern black nationalism.

You do not know me yet. My son Thomas, who is publishing this book, tells me, it is customary at this place in a novel to give the reader a little taste of the story that is held within these pages. As your storyteller, I am to convey that this tale is set in Jamaica during the last turbulent years of slavery and the early years of freedom that followed. July is a slave girl who lives upon a sugar plantation named Amity and it is her life that is the subject of this tale. She was there when the Baptist War raged in 1831, and she was present when slavery was declared no more. My son says I must convey how the story tells also of July's mama Kitty, of the negroes that worked the plantation land, of Caroline Mortimer the white woman who owned the plantation and many more persons besides - far too many for me to list here. But what befalls them all is carefully chronicled upon these pages for you to peruse. Perhaps, my son suggests, I might write that it is a thrilling journey through that time in the company of people who lived it. All this he wishes me to pen so the reader can decide if this is a novel they might care to consider. Cha, I tell my son, what fuss-fuss. Come, let them just read it for themselves.
