A riveting account of the African American timeline. Black Man White House is a gripping narrative of the events that saw the black race rise from the doldrums of a dark and sordid past to where it is today. With a sweeping forward momentum, this collection of thoughtful, provocative essays navigates the complex, sensitive, and often concealed history of the African American experience. Moving from African ancestry through the Underground Railroad to Barack Obama, this captivating journey through timeline of African American revolution and defining moments in black history explores charismatic, famously known African American leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr., Booker T. Washington, Rosa Parks, Malcolm X; to lesser known but equally important activists in the individuals of Harriet Tubman, Jackie Robinson, George Washington Carver, and Thurgood Marshall; and exceptional athletes and sportsmen like Jesse Owens, Jackie Robinson, and Muhammad Ali. Black Man White House also traverses historical movements such as the Harlem Renaissance and the Rainbow Coalition as poignant and defining moments like the Dred Scott Decision, Brown versus the Board of Education, and the Thirteenth Amendment. A captivating examination of black life that offers penetrating commentary on the intricate history of the African American people, Black Man White House is a seminal history lesson that will provoke, inspire, enlighten, and entertain. It is required literature for everyone interested in African American history and the struggle for civil rights in America. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Greg Campbell.

Black Dahlia murder case is one of the most unbelievable and famous murder stories in the city rife, and a lot of fame-seekers around the town were claiming her death and wanted to play part of the case. And over years, the number of people who were claiming her brutal death grew into hundreds, and almost all detectives who handled the murder case of Black Dahlia dropped the case shortly. Elizabeth Short, who is also nicknamed "Black Dahlia"; was brutally murdered in January 15, 1947, with her body cut in two and severely mutilated. Dahlia´s body was found in a vacant lot that is near the intersection of 39th St. and Norton Ave. in South Los Angeles and had no trace of blood in the place of the crime scene. Her death is one of the most publicized murder cases in 1947, but the police and the investigation team have never been able to solve the brutal crime. Up until now, the case of "Black Dahlia" was still considered by many as a mystery, and the question still remains today as to "who really killed her" and "what is the true motive of her murderer". Black Dahlia´s murderer was never found, thus leaving her death as one of the cold case files in L.A. In this audiobook, we will again re-open the case of Black Dahlia and try to decipher the mystery of her brutal death, which remained unsolved up until now. Let us discover the secrets and records of her death and trace the untold mystery of her murder case. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott R. Smith.

From New York Times best-selling author, ´´one of America´s top cultural critics´´ (Entertainment Weekly), and ´´The Ethicist´´ for The New York Times Magazine, comes a new book of all original pieces on villains and villainy. Chuck Klosterman has walked into the darkness. As a boy, he related to the cultural figures who represented goodness - but as an adult, he found himself unconsciously aligning with their enemies. This was not because he necessarily liked what they were doing; it was because they were doing it on purpose (and they were doing it better). They wanted to be evil. And what, exactly, was that supposed to mean? When we classify someone as a bad person, what are we really saying (and why are we so obsessed with saying it)? In I Wear the Black Hat, Klosterman questions the very nature of how modern people understand the concept of villainy. What was so Machiavellian about Machiavelli? Why don´t we see Batman the same way we see Bernhard Goetz? Who´s more worthy of our vitriol - Bill Clinton or Don Henley? What was O.J. Simpson´s second-worst decision? And why is Klosterman still obsessed with some kid he knew for one week in 1985? Masterfully blending cultural analysis with self-interrogation and limitless imagination, I Wear the Black Hat delivers perceptive observations on the complexity of the anti-hero (seemingly the only kind of hero America still creates). I Wear the Black Hat is the rare example of serious criticism that´s instantly accessible and really, really funny. Klosterman is the only writer doing whatever it is he´s doing. 1.

Pulitzer Prize, Biography/Autobiography, 2013 By the author of the internationally best-selling biography The Orientalist, The Black Count brings to life one of history’s great forgotten heroes: a man almost unknown today yet with a personal story that is strikingly familiar. His swashbuckling exploits appear in The Three Musketeers, and his triumphs and ultimate tragic fate inspired The Count of Monte Cristo. His name is Alex Dumas. Father of the novelist Alexandre Dumas, Alex has become, through his son´s books, the model for a captivating modern protagonist: The wronged man in search of justice. Born to a black slave mother and a fugitive white French nobleman in Saint-Domingue (present-day Haiti), Alex Dumas was briefly sold into bondage but then made his way to Paris where he was schooled as a sword-fighting member of the French aristocracy. He was only 32 when he was given command of 53,000 men, the reward for series of triumphs that many regarded as impossible, and then topped his previous feats by leading a raid up a frozen cliff face that secured the Alps for France. It was after his subsequent heroic service as Napoleon’s cavalry commander that Dumas was captured and cast into a dungeon - and a harrowing ordeal commenced that inspired one of the world’s classic works of fiction. The Black Count is simultaneously a riveting adventure story, a lushly textured evocation of 18th-century France, and a window into the modern world’s first multi-racial society. But it is also a heartbreaking story of the enduring bonds of love between a father and son. Drawing on hitherto unknown documents, letters, battlefield reports and Dumas´ handwritten prison diary, The Black Count is a groundbreaking masterpiece of narrative nonfiction. 1. Language: English.

The Black Count is the Pulitzer Prize-winning biography written by author Tom Reiss. The book traces the life of Thomas-Alexandre Davy de la Pailleterie, also known as Alexandre Dumas: a black general who fought in the French Revolution. The narrative is told through historical documents as well as writings of Dumas´ son, the novelist Alexandre Dumas, who wrote The Three Musketeers and The Count of Monte Cristo. Dumas was born in 1762 in the Saint-Domingue French sugar colony currently known as Haiti. His father, Alexandre Antoine Davy de la Pailleterie, was a French nobleman who became a marquis. After establishing a Jeremie coffee plantation in the 1750s, he purchased a slave named Marie Cessette and they had four children together. Antoine sold his wife and children into slavery, but pawned his favorite son, Dumas, and in August of 1776 he redeemed him. Dumas and Antoine moved to Saint-Germain-en-Laye, a small city west of Paris. Please note: This is an unofficial summary and analysis of the book and not the original book.
