Salsa, Soul, and Spirit (EasyRead Comfort Edition): Leadership for a Multicultural Age
Salsa, Soul and Spirit: Leadership for a Multicultural Age
It was my honor to read this phenomenal book. I love that Juana Bordas included the Sankofa principles! I cried as I read the author's personal journey to become educated. When I left New Orleans in 2001 I had previously earned a Master's Degree and was a Title I Coordinator of Instruction in the New Orleans Public Schools. My mother did not understand why I would leave a "good job" in ...

It is truly a lovely book in many ways and offered many fantastic ideas for even the ...

WHERE PEACHTREE MEETS SWEET AUBURN: The Saga of Two Families and the Making of Atlanta
Gary M. Pomerantz
A Wonderful Read
I've read several of Gary's books and found this one to be an amazing work of not only scholarship and very detailed research but it was also very readable. Some people may be put off by the sheer size of the book but once I was hooked (it took a few pages), I really couldn't put it down until I was done. Luckily, I was on a cruise and quite a few sea days to lie back in the sun and savour ...
I loved this book! Ruby is a Chinese child living in China with her very large family. As a child, she knew that she was destined to marry, like all the females in her family, but she really wanted to go to the university. It is a childrens' book with beautiful illustrations. There is a special little twist at the end that makes the story even more endearing to the reader. We have given it ...
The Color of My Paint
Mario L. Vazquez
An Emotional Rollercoaster
"The color of my paint" invited me back to walk in the midst of my childhood's memories. It was such a delight to read, to remember and comprehend how much in common we can share with an author once we get caught in that magic moment that only a good writing creates. Through out his writing I was transported back in the times where curiosity, innocence and the rewarding pain of growing ruled. The ...

The Global Fund for Children
Wonderful and important book!
I love this book - it's been one of my daughter's favorites since we bought it, and it still is. (She was 3 months when we got it and is 12 months now.) She loves looking at the bright pictures of babies' faces. And as a parent, I am thrilled to introduce this message to her at such a young age. It does a better job than any other children's book I've seen of displaying all the wonderful ...

I really like the way the author approaches the new subject and think the exercises are effective when it comes to learning vocabulary, idioms, slangs and expressions. The discussion questions are well planned showing the students how the ...

Instead of building the case against the inequitable system with facts and figures, as he has in previous work, he has chosen the subtle but effective approach of a storyteller. He paints a very descriptive portrait of the victims of continued segregation and racism that ...
