✏The Half Has Never Been Told Book Summary : A groundbreaking history demonstrating that America's economic supremacy was built on the backs of slaves Winner of the 2015 Avery O. Craven Prize from the Organization of American Historians Winner of the 2015 Sidney Hillman Prize Americans tend to cast slavery as a pre-modern institution--the nation's original sin, perhaps, but isolated in time and divorced from America's later success. But to do so robs the millions who suffered in bondage of their full legacy. As historian Edward E. Baptist reveals in The Half Has Never Been Told, the expansion of slavery in the first eight decades after American independence drove the evolution and modernization of the United States. In the span of a single lifetime, the South grew from a narrow coastal strip of worn-out tobacco plantations to a continental cotton empire, and the United States grew into a modern, industrial, and capitalist economy. Told through intimate slave narratives, plantation records, newspapers, and the words of politicians, entrepreneurs, and escaped slaves, The Half Has Never Been Told offers a radical new interpretation of American history.

✏Birth of a Notion Or the Half Ain t Never Been Told Book Summary : "Through a virtuosic mastery of various literary genres, poet, playwright, and critic Bill Harris gives us an incisive, witty, and elegant account of the complex dimensions and often deeply disturbing realities informing the contentious American discourse(s) on racial mythology, cultural identity, and political history. Like its author, this book is profound, subtle, hilarious, and deadly serious."---Kofi Natambu, author of The Melody Never Stops, What is an Aesthetic? Writings on American Culture, and Malcolm X: His Life & Work and the editor of the Panopticon Review "In the pernicious game of truth vs. myth. Bill Harris's hard-hitting Birth of a Notion knocks the ball all the way out of the park. Caringly researched and poetically delivered, this savvy book picks up the story of ethnic stereotyping from where the late filmmaker Marion Riggs's Ethnic Notions leaves off. Like all official stories, social myth fills a need. The need for white American Christians to justify the riches they reaped from owning slaves seems obvious. But why does the myth of black inferiority persist? Harris steps up to the plate to hit at this and other crucial questions about the nature of spite, self-justification, and the self-defeating concepts of racial superiority and the Other."---Al Young, poet laureate emeritus of California "Bill Harris's look at comedy as an integral part of the black aesthetic focuses on minstrelsy; however, it is simply a metaphor for his dissecting all the complex avenues of humor in so many corners of black America from D. W. Griffith's Birth of a Nation to the present."---Woodie King, producing director of New Federal Theatre in New York and author of The Impact of Race

The testimony it gives from many of the world's greatest physicians, statesmen, prison officials, and ministers of the gospel is of great value, and can not fail to make a profound impression upon those into whose hands the book may fall. The statistics, poems, songs, and suggestions relating to temperance meetings will be very helpful to those whose hearts yearn to do something to advance the cause of true temperance. --A. G.

✏The Bible and Bob Marley Book Summary : With a Bible and guitar, Bob Marley set out to conquer the world of popular music. Rising from humble origins to international stardom, he worked tirelessly to spread a dual message of resistance and redemption--a message inspired by his reading of scripture. Marley's constant reliance on the Bible throughout the stages of his artistic and spiritual paths is an integral part of his story that has not been sufficiently told--until now. This is the first book written on Bob Marley as biblical interpreter. It answers the question, What light does biblical scholarship shed on Marley's interpretation, and what can Marley teach biblical scholars? Focusing on the parts of the Bible that Marley quotes most often in his lyrics, MacNeil provides a close analysis of Marley's interpretation. For students of Marley, this affords a deeper appreciation and understanding of his thought and his art. For students of scripture, it demonstrates the nature of Marley's unique contribution to the field of biblical interpretation, which can be appreciated as an excellent example of what R. S. Sugirtharajah calls vernacular interpretation of scripture.
