BAYARD RUSTIN POSTHUMOUSLY AWARDED THE 2013 PRESIDENTIAL MEDAL OF FREEDOM A master strategist and tireless activist, Bayard Rustin is best remembered as the organizer of the 1963 March on Washington, one of the largest nonviolent protests ever held in the United States. He brought Gandhi's protest techniques to the American civil rights movement and played a deeply influential role in the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., helping to mold him into an international symbol of nonviolence. Despite these achievements, Rustin often remained in the background. He was silenced, threatened, arrested, beaten, imprisoned, and fired from important leadership positions, largely because he was an openly gay man in a fiercely homophobic era. Here we have Rustin in his own words in a collection of over 150 of his eloquent, impassioned letters; his correspondents include the major progressives of his day — including Eleanor Holmes Norton, A Philip Randolph, Roy Wilkins, Ella Baker, and of course, Martin Luther King Jr. Bayard Rustin's ability to chart the path "from protest to politics" is both timely and deeply informative. Here, at last, is direct access to the strategic thinking and tactical planning that led to the successes of one of America's most transformative and historic social movements. "Rustin was a life-long agitator for justice. He changed America — and the world — for the better. This collection of his letters makes his life and his passions come vividly alive, and helps restore him to history, a century after this birth. I Must Resist makes for inspiring reading." —John D'Emilio, author of Lost Prophet: The Life and Times of Bayard Rustin "A vital addition to the history of the civil rights movement by an exceptionally determined, vital and creative force who was invaluable to Martin Luther King Jr and A. Philip Randolph among many others." -- Nat Hentoff "Bayard Rustin's courageously candid letters, most of which have never before been available to researchers, provide fascinating glimpses into the private life of one of history's most reticent public figures." -- Clayborne Carson, Founding Director of the Martin Luther King Jr. Research and Education Institute at Stanford University "Bayard Rustin was a committed but very complicated person. This marvelously annotated collection of letters explain the spirit, and evolution of the thoughts and actions of an often overlooked key figure in the 20th century civil and human rights movement." -- Mary Frances Berry, Geraldine Segal Professor of American Social Thought, University of Pennsylvania, and former Chair United States Commission on Civil Rights "All aspects of Rustin's experiences are captured in these letters, including his struggles with opponents dedicated to silencing him as an international symbol of nonviolent protests against racial injustice. This remarkable and deeply moving publication is a must-read." -- William Julius Wilson, Lewis P. and Linda L. Geyser University Professor, Harvard University Bayard Rustin (March 17, 1912 – August 24, 1987) was an American leader in social movements for civil rights, socialism, pacifism and non-violence, and gay rights.

"There are more seasons to come and there is more work to do," Hillary Clinton told her supporters following her surprising defeat in the 2016 presidential election. Taking her words to heart, on January 21, 2017, millions of women (and men) across America--opposing a president-elect many considered a misogynist--marched in protest. Millions more around the world joined them in the first mass action of a new women's political resistance movement. This collection of essays and interviews presents 36 voices in this emerging movement discussing a range of topics--activism, healthcare, education, LGBTQIA issues, the environment, and other concerns that affect the political and cultural environment now and in the future (www.werisetoresist.com).

"This extraordinary book is the roadmap for a new kind of effective activism."' -- Brian Eno "This book is for people who are angry with the ways things are and want to do something about it; for people who are frustrated with the system, or worried about the direction the country is going. Maybe they've been on a march, posted their opinions on social media, or shouted angrily at something they've seen on the news but don't feel like it's making any difference. It is for people who want to make a change but they're not sure how." -- Matthew Bolton

"Christ-Centered Consciousness" is the work of a spiritually awakened gay man who was healed from a satanic possession by Jesus Christ through extraordinary spiritual phenomena. The core of his spiritual bondage was in a lack of acceptance of his sexuality and of his deepest core self. The healing of this self has led him to many spiritual discoveries, including an ability to discern the presence of Christ in his own consciousness. The goal of this book is to enable the reader to build a connection to God in their own consciousness and to discern the ways in which the enemy tries to block progress. Christ is truly the ultimate in healing and joy, and learning how to discern his presence and follow his lead in one's own life is the doorway to happiness in this life, and eternal joy in the next.

Time is variable in the remarkable new novel Bertha's Journal: A Perfect Immelman Turn. In 2050, British newlyweds Jacqueline and Harry are rebuilding Thornfield Hall as their new home. They stumble upon a journal packed in salt that was written by a woman, presumed mad, named Bertha, who lived in the nineteenth century. As they begin to read her journal, their carriage is overturned and their driver killed. In another period and place, sometime after Queen Victoria's death, a student named Moksha takes the journal to her teacher Vedanta to read. Or is it possible they are writing it? Back in the future, Jacqueline and Harry read of Bertha's struggle to find her identity and her version of the events that led to the fire at Thornfield Hall, all of which is having a strange effect upon Jacqueline. Thornfield Hall possesses a history that increasingly threatens the couple's new married life. What secrets did a dead ancestor bury in her book? Inspired by Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre, Jean Rhys's Wide Sargasso Sea, Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, and Virginia Woolf's Mrs.Dalloway, Bertha's Journal is an inventive narrative that yields an intriguing look at one of literature's most fascinating characters. A mother of five, Hermione Wilds was raised in Ham, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, and now resides in Shaftesbury, North Dorset. She is writing her next novel.
