Ben Blue is born prematurely on a kitchen table in Chicago in 1956. As the tiny Ho-Chunk Indian takes his first breath, he has no idea of the challenges that await him in life. Ben grows up amid poverty in his grandparents’ Wisconsin home where he learns how to fight, face bullies, and play football. As he is shuttled between his alcoholic mother’s home and his grandparents’, Ben must cling to hope that he can one day overcome the despair that has haunted the American Indians for generations. When Ben moves to California with his mother, his life spirals downward after he is introduced to drugs and alcohol. After his mother dies, Ben journeys through the darkness of addiction and poverty—until he commits to sobriety, causing his life to take a turn for the better. Even as Ben finds a job, earns a college degree, marries, and has children, he must battle the lures of his addiction. As his path leads him to explore his Ho-Chunk identity and address stereotypical images of Indians, he proudly makes a declaration that changes everything. My Name is Not Chief shares the tale of an American Indian’s struggles as he attempts to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles and find his place in the world.

Joe Okonkwo has produced a volume of poetry that is actually a mosaic of African-American and Gay issues. This riveting collection covers everything from Jazz and sex, to politics and dating; from racism within the Gay community, to black on black racism. There are poems about the journey from depression to wholeness and poems about exuberant gay men flouncing about the streets wearing only silk boxer shorts and argyle socks. This volume has a little of everything including poignant tributes to Jazz greats Ethel Waters and Billie Holiday. Joe Okonkwo fearlessly tackles taboo subjects such as what some African-Americans really think about the ghetto, who really bears the blame for slavery and how expectations the Gay media sets forth affect those who don't—or can't—comply. Milk Chocolate/Naked Moon is exactly what we've been waiting for: an unpredictable, page turning collection of poetry.
This book provides a complete grammar of the Mani language spoken in the Samu (alternate French spelling “Samou”) region of Sierra Leone and Guinea. The data come from a short pilot study conducted in 2000, and a larger study taking place over two years 2004-2006. That the Mani language will soon disappear is certain; just as certain is that this grammar will be the only one ever written.
