DESCRIPTION BOOK:

A refreshed edition of Jambalaya: The Natural Woman’s Book of Personal Charms and Practical Rituals—updated with a note from the author sharing the changes that have occurred in the 30 years since its original publication. "A book of startling remembrances, revelations, directives, and imperatives, filled with the mysticism, wisdom, and common sense of the African religion of the Mother. It should be read with the same open-minded love with which it was written."—Alice Walker, author of The Color Purple Since its original publication in 1985, Jambalaya has become a classic among Women’s Spirituality Educators, practitioners of traditional Africana religions, environmental activists, and cultural creatives. A mix of memoir, spiritual teachings, and practices from Afro-American traditions such as Ifa/Orisha, and New Orleans Voudou, it offers a fascinating introduction to the world of nature-based spirituality, Goddess worship, and rituals from the African diaspora. More relevant today than it was 36 years ago, the wisdom of Jambalaya reconnects us to the natural and spiritual world, and the centuries-old traditions of African ancestors, whose voices echo through time, guiding us and blending with our own.

The Lemonade Reader is an interdisciplinary collection that explores the nuances of Beyoncé’s 2016 visual album, Lemonade. The essays and editorials present fresh, cutting-edge scholarship fueled by contemporary thoughts on film, material culture, religion, and black feminism. Envisioned as an educational tool to support and guide discussions of the visual album at postgraduate and undergraduate levels, The Lemonade Reader critiques Lemonade’s multiple Afrodiasporic influences, visual aesthetics, narrative arc of grief and healing, and ethnomusicological reach. The essays, written by both scholars and popular bloggers, reflects a broad yet uniquely specific black feminist investigation into constructions of race, gender, spirituality, and southern identity. The Lemonade Reader gathers a newer generation of black feminist scholars to engage in intellectual discourse and confront the emotional labor around the Lemonade phenomena. It is the premiere source for examining Lemonade, a text that will continue to have a lasting impact on black women’s studies and popular culture.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Carly Simon's New York Times bestselling memoir, Boys in the Trees, reveals her remarkable life, beginning with her storied childhood as the third daughter of Richard L. Simon, the co-founder of publishing giant Simon & Schuster, her musical debut as half of The Simon Sisters performing folk songs with her sister Lucy in Greenwich Village, to a meteoric solo career that would result in 13 top 40 hits, including the #1 song "You're So Vain." She was the first artist in history to win a Grammy Award, an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award, for her song "Let the River Run" from the movie Working Girl. The memoir recalls a childhood enriched by music and culture, but also one shrouded in secrets that would eventually tear her family apart. Simon brilliantly captures moments of creative inspiration, the sparks of songs, and the stories behind writing "Anticipation" and "We Have No Secrets" among many others. Romantic entanglements with some of the most famous men of the day fueled her confessional lyrics, as well as the unraveling of her storybook marriage to James Taylor.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Spiritual Man: Natural Woman is an empowerment and relationship-building Bible study written to reveal and remind young, middle-aged, and mature women of faith that we do not have to ask for liberation or equality because we already possess it. The key to experiencing the joy of womanhood lies in our individual and collective abilities to learn what acceptable and unacceptable relationships with each other and the men in our lives look like from the women of the Bible. Spiritual Man: Natural Woman brings attention to the fact that as women, we have the same responsibility as men to learn to worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth. Spiritual Man: Natural Woman also holds us accountable for learning and evolving into the specially designed help meet (daughter, sister, aunt, niece, cousin, mother, wife, and friend) our sons, brothers, uncles, nephews, cousins, fathers, husbands, and friends can share with, learn from, and be willing to protect, support, and grow with. As women of faith, we must be mindful of how we respect one another as we move forward in our efforts to be respected by men. Spiritual Man: Natural Woman is not an exhaustive listing of all the Scriptures that pertain to womanhood. Instead, Spiritual Man: Natural Woman was written to elaborate on how important we are to the Most High. Spiritual Man: Natural Woman was written to prove we are not an "after the fact" creation. Spiritual Man: Natural Woman was written to remind us that we were given authority over land, sea, and air, just like man, and that we have a responsibility to work harmoniously with one another and with man. Spiritual Man: Natural Woman was written to remind us that we will be held accountable for the way we have chosen to live our lives, for we too shall stand before the Judgment seat, and I am one woman who definitely wants to hear Him say, "Well done, my good and faithful servant!"

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Bathing beauty Esther Williams, bombshell Jane Russell, exotic Carmen Miranda, chanteuse Lena Horne, and talk-show fixture Zsa Zsa Gabor are rarely hailed as great actors or as naturalistic performers. Those terms of praise are given to male stars like Marlon Brando and James Dean, whose gritty dramas are seen as a departure from the glossy spectacles in which these stars appeared. Like a Natural Woman challenges those assumptions, revealing the skill and training that went into the work of these five actresses, who employed naturalistic performance techniques, both onscreen and off. Bringing a fresh perspective to film history through the lens of performance studies, Kirsten Pullen explores the ways in which these actresses, who always appeared to be “playing themselves,” responded to the naturalist notion that actors should create authentic characters by drawing from their own lives. At the same time, she examines how Hollywood presented these female stars as sex objects, focusing on their spectacular bodies at the expense of believable characterization or narratives. Pullen not only helps us appreciate what talented actresses these five women actually were, but also reveals how they sought to express themselves and maintain agency, even while meeting the demands of their directors, studios, families, and fans to perform certain feminine roles. Drawing from a rich collection of classic films, publicity materials, and studio archives, Like a Natural Woman lets us take a new look at both Hollywood acting techniques and the performance of femininity itself.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Mary J. Blige is an icon who represents the political consciousness of hip hop and the historical promise of soul. She is an everywoman, celebrated by Oprah Winfrey and beloved by pop music fans of all ages and races. Blige has sold over fifty million albums, won numerous Grammys, and even played at multiple White House events, as well as the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize ceremony. Displaying astonishing range and versatility, she has recorded everything from Broadway standards to Led Zeppelin anthems and worked with some of popular music's greatest artists—Aretha Franklin, Eric Clapton, Elton John, Whitney Houston, Sting, U2, and Beyoncé, among them. Real Love, No Drama: The Music of Mary J. Blige tells the story of one of the most important artists in pop music history. Danny Alexander follows the whole arc of Blige's career, from her first album, which heralded the birth of "hip hop soul," to her critically praised 2014 album, The London Sessions. He highlights the fact that Blige was part of the historically unprecedented movement of black women onto pop radio and explores how she and other women took control of their careers and used their music to give voice to women's (and men's) everyday struggles and dreams. This book adds immensely to the story of both black women artists and artists rooted in hip hop and pays tribute to a musician who, by expanding her reach and asking tough questions about how music can and should evolve, has proven herself an artistic visionary.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

For years women thought they had only two choices for menopause; avoid taking synthetic hormones altogether and suffer the occasionally debilitating side effects of menopause, such as bone loss, or accept a prescription for HRT and with it an increased risk of some cancers. But, as this groundbreaking book proves, there is a better, safer, more effective way. In NATURAL WOMAN, NATURAL MENOPAUSE, Marcus Laux and Christine Conrad cut through the confusion and show women that they can take natural, plant-derived hormones, now widely available, which match their own hormones exactly without any known side effects. Accessible as well as authoritative, NATURAL WOMAN, NATURAL MENOPAUSE features stories of other women who, like Christine Conrad, found they didn't have to accept less than a completely safe alternative. This invaluable guide also offers readers their complete plan for long-lasting health and renewed vitality. Following their 'Natural Woman' plan, which features the right combination of plant-derived hormones, nutritional supplements, a plant-rich diet and an exercise programme to eliminate and even reverse the effects of bone loss, women will find not only that they will be more energetic and radiant, but they also will be adding years of good health to their lives.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Introduction by Kevin Baker The Natural, Bernard Malamud's first novel, published in 1952, is also the first—and some would say still the best—novel ever written about baseball. In it Malamud, usually appreciated for his unerring portrayals of postwar Jewish life, took on very different material—the story of a superbly gifted "natural" at play in the fields of the old daylight baseball era—and invested it with the hardscrabble poetry, at once grand and altogether believable, that runs through all his best work. Four decades later, Alfred Kazin's comment still holds true: "Malamud has done something which—now that he has done it!—looks as if we have been waiting for it all our lives. He has really raised the whole passion and craziness and fanaticism of baseball as a popular spectacle to its ordained place in mythology."
