Given the unique history of African Americans and their diverse religious traditions -- seen in black Christianity, the Nation of Islam, Voodoo, and others -- is there one fundamental meaning to black religion in America? What is the heart and soul of African American religious life? As a leader in both black religious studies and theology, Anthony Pinn has probed the dynamism and variety of African American religious expressions. In this work, which he also delivered as the Edward Cadbury Lectures at the University of Birmingham, England, he searches out the basic structure of black religion, tracing the black religious spirit in its many historical manifestations. Pinn finds in the terrors of enslavement of black bodies and subsequent oppressions the primal experience to which the black religious impulse provides a perennial and cumulative response. Oppressions entailed the denial of personhood and creation of an object: the Negro. Slave auctions, punishments, and later, lynchings created an existential dread but also evoked a quest, a search, for complex subjectivity or authentic personhood that still fuels black religion today. Pinn's promising work offers a major new understanding of what it means to be black and religious in the United States.

BACKBONE is a Memoir about the life of Tamara M Hamil, her struggles as a child, and the psychological damage that almost destroyed her as an adult. While bouncing back and forth between parents and family members she was molested, raped, and beaten which made her question her identity, self worth, and love. Living in silence and fear while protecting her abusers is now behind her, but the transformation to realize her God given talent, reclaim her identity, and self worth was far from easy. Tamara didn't choose her circumstances, but they chose her. Instead of being defeated by them, she has chosen to be a voice for women with similar struggles, hoping to help them to understand forgiveness and gain an understanding that no one controls your destiny but you. Tamara hopes that her story will connect with at least one person and inspire them to break free from their mental shackles and reach their full potential.
This is the first book that takes a long-term perspective of the aftereffects of hostage-taking, by asking questions such as: Were there enduring effects of such an experience, and what might those effects be? How did survivors view their experience through the lens of time? Were there any positive effects associated with the experience? Campbell examines how hostage victims perceive their victimization, and how they go about the task of rebuilding their assumptive world. In sharing the intimate details of this process, the hostage survivors have allowed us to be close observers in their efforts to redefine their world and themselves.
Twelve domestic violence survivors describe the terror they experienced and the extra challenges they encountered from a system that was supposed to help them. Most importantly, they tell of the practical steps they have taken - physically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually - to journey from darkness to light and build new lives.
