NO writing, marks or tears. Illustrated throughout. Over-sized book. 150 pages. Defying the statistics, destroying the stereotypes, this inspiring collection of portraits trumpets the achievements of thirty-nine young black men. This handsome volume combines luminous photographs with intimate interviews of young men leading exemplary lives. Photographer Julian Okwu traveled across the country interviewing teachers and entrepreneurs, lobbyists and poets, ministers and politicians. He found a diverse range of voices, experiences, and attitudes, but all of the men he met shared a concern for the African American male and a hope that future generations would benefit from their work. In a world of negative images, skewed statistics, and racial division, these young men embody an alternative reality and an eloquent argument for optimism. A powerful, timely social document. Publishers Weekly A British-born black man of Nigerian heritage who moved to the U.S. in 1970, the 30-year-old Okwu finds media images of young black men irredeemably tilted toward sports, rap and crime. In this gallery of photos and mini-profiles, Okwu gives voice to 40 young African Americans from around the country whose lives refute stereotypes. His inspiration was Brian Lanker's I Dream a World (1989), about African American women, and if this book understandably lacks its precursor's historical resonance, it has a collective heft. Presbyterian minister Bruce Grady testifies about how the church can help redeem. Screenwriter Devon Shepard talks about racism in Hollywood and how "[o]ur attitude is our strength." Police officer Dexter Yarbrough finds that his family counterbalances the negativity he sees on the streets. Okwu has also found rarer types, for example, Ikolo Griffin, a ballet dancer of multiracial heritage who cherishes the story of his African great-great-grandfather yet sees dance as transcending the merely national, and clothes designer Anthony Mark Hankins, who steers between current white prejudice and memories of teenage rejection by black classmates to succeed in the fashion world, in part by creating a line of clothes for women with olive and brown complexions. (May) Biography Julian C.R. Okwu (pronounced Oh-koo) was born in London, England, to Nigerian parents and raised in Connecticut. His work has appeared on the covers of several books and publications and in numerous magazines. The 1994 recipient of the Revels M. Cayton Awa . Trade Paperback.

Her father was alternately physically abusive and very affectionate, thereby setting up a pattern of highly-charged sexual violence that she sought in her future relationships with men. She studied fine art at college and painted throughout her first marriage. After years of violence and betrayals she left her husband, taking her two daughters, and found herself unable to paint - a block which it took her 20 years to overcome. Turning her talents to the fashion world, she became an arbiter of style at the height of the "Swinging Sixties", as fashion editor of "Nova", "Harper's" and "The Sunday Times". Her second marriage - to a younger man, the painter Patrick Hughes - took her down to Cornwall, where she wrote her best-selling comic-erotic novels. Outwardly it seemed she could do no wrong, but she was already drinking to excess and the marriage was failing. They moved to New York, staying at the notorious Chelsea Hotel and mixing with the famous and infamous, indulging in sex, drugs and drink. Just before she left for England to see her ailing mother, her husband tried to kill her, and back home - alone - she embarked on a career as a cabaret artiste, but the day she blacked out on stage in an alcoholic stupor was her lowest point. She contemplated suicide, but slowly fought back, seeking and eventually finding a spiritual centre to her life. This is Molly Parkin's autobiography. Quantity Available: 1.
