✏Up from Slavery Book Summary : During his unchallenged reign as black America's foremost spokesman, former slave Booker T. Washington treaded a dangerous middle ground in a time of racial backlash and disfranchisement: as he publicly acquiesced to whites on issues of social equality, he fiercely exhorted blacks, through his national political machine, to unite and improve their lot. Though Washington worked ceaselessly, through many channels, to gain moral and financial support for his people and for his beloved Tuskegee Institute, Up from Slavery, his autobiography, helped him at these endeavours more than all other efforts combined. Vividly recounting Washington's life - his childhood as a slave, his struggle for education, his founding and presidency of the Tuskegee Institute, his meetings with the country's leaders, Up from Slavery reveals the conviction he held that the black man's salvation lay in education, industriousness and self-reliance. Louis R. Harlan's introduction fully assesses the impact of this simply written, anecdotal life story that bears the mark of a man of real courage, talent and dedication.

✏Read Up Book Summary : "In our age in which it is rapidly becoming a lost art, the importance of conversation should not be overlooked," writes C. Christopher Smith in the foreword of Read Up, Volume 2. "It is in conversation that our ideas and language and dreams get forged into common structures that shape the life of our communities—church, neighborhood, workplace, etc. . . . Reading is a sort of fuel for these conversations, providing energy in the form of words and ideas that bring life to and clarify our conversations." Conversations about good books refresh us as we glean wisdom and receive understanding from one another. In reading groups we don't have to hope someone wants to hear our opinions—it's expected! And even better, the idea or concept that we missed in our reading is often what our fellow readers will discover and share with us. Our "aha" moments are multiplied in conversation. Even in disagreement—maybe especially when we disagree—there is opportunity to learn from one another as we seek to understand different points of view. "The book that you hold in your hands—be it in print or in digital format—is a wonderful conversation starter," Smith continues. "Not only does it recommend some really good and timely books, at least some of which will be pertinent to the shared life of your church, it also highlights some questions about these books that will surely get your conversation rolling. I pray that this little volume will stir up many conversations, leading you into more questions, but ultimately into deeper and richer faithfulness in your local church communities." Whether your group is looking to discuss contemporary issues, history, fiction or memoirs, Read Up, Volume 2 has you covered, with descriptions, discussion questions, author conversations or excerpts for more than 30 thoughtful books. The diverse assortment of titles in this second volume of Read Up will provide you and your group with books that lead to both stimulating reading and meaningful conversation. Bring Read Up to your next book club and get the conversation started.

✏Growing Up in Slavery Book Summary : Culled from full-length autobiographies, the voices of ten slaves--all under the age of nineteen--describe the full range of slave experiences, from starvation, torture, and violence, to love, laughter, and family life. Ten slaves all under the age of 19 tell their stories of enslavement, brutality, and dreams of freedom in this collection. Culled from full-length autobiographies, these accounts were selected to help teenagers relate to the horrific experiences of slaves their own age in the not-so-distant past. Included are stories of young slaves, all under the age of 19, torn from their mothers and families, suffering from starvation, and being whipped and tortured. But these are not all tales of deprivation and violence. Teenagers will see themselves in these accounts as the slaves challenge authority, play games, tell jokes, and fall in love. These stories cover the range of the slave experience, from the passage in slave ships across the Atlantic to daily life as a slave both on large plantations and in small city dwellings, and from escaping slavery to fighting in the Civil War. The writings of Olaudah Equiano, Frederick Douglass, William Wells Brown, Harriet Jacobs, Elizabeth Keckley, and other less famous slaves are included.
