Praised as “viscerally powerful” (Publishers Weekly), this remarkable work of oral history captures the searing experience of the Jim Crow years—enriched by memories of individual, family, and community triumphs and tragedies. In vivid, compelling accounts, men and women from all walks of life tell how their day-to-day lives were subjected to profound and unrelenting racial oppression. At the same time, Remembering Jim Crow is a testament to how black Southerners fought back against the system—raising children, building churches and schools, running businesses, and struggling for respect in a society that denied them the most basic rights. The result is a powerful story of individual and community survival and an important part of the American past that is crucial for us to remember. Based on interviews collected by the Behind the Veil Project at Duke University’s Center for Documentary Studies, this landmark in African American oral history is now available in an affordable paperback edition and, for the first time, as an e-book with audio.
This is a novel about a Chinese woman living in New York, who returns to China for a visit. Her trip home turns out to be a voyage of self-rediscovery.
DescriptionKatharine May Cunningham was a little too sensitive for her own good, and understimulated to boot. Every little thing was an embarrassment that made her increasingly anxious around others, resulting in withdrawal from others, retreat into an inner perfect world without any embarrassment that she hoped for in the future, and a diagnosis that pretty much meant "too smart for her own good." This led to bipolar disorder, including such a deep depression from the lack of stimulation from her withdrawn life and a mania characterized by desperate, hyperactive attempts to get stimulation and make up for the lost time... not caring any more if she embarrassed herself or not. This is a true story. About the AuthorKatharine May Cunningham was born in 1988 in Canada. Suspected at a young age of having a pervasive developmental disorder (NOT delay, disease, disability or defect), she was eventually diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder-Not Otherwise Specified, along with Bipolar I Disorder. Katharine is now a part of the autistic rights movement, where the goals are understanding and acceptance rather than pity or a "cure," as PDDs are not any more bad than they are good... just different. Katharine has a son in Texas (born in 2008) and plans to become a psychiatric technician there.
