Executive Order 9981, issued by President Harry Truman on July 26, 1948, desegregated all branches of the United States military by decree. EO 9981 is often portrayed as a heroic and unexpected move by Truman. But in reality, Truman's history-making order was the culmination of more than 150 years of legal, political, and moral struggle. Beginning with the Revolutionary War, African Americans had used military service to do their patriotic duty and to advance the cause of civil rights. The fight for a desegregated military was truly a long war-decades of protest and labor highlighted by bravery on the fields of France, in the skies over Germany, and in the face of deep-seated racism on the military bases at home. Today, the military is one of the most truly diverse institutions in America. In The Double V, Rawn James, Jr. the son and grandson of African American veterans, expertly narrates the remarkable history of how the struggle for equality in the military helped give rise to their fight for equality in civilian society. Taking the reader from Crispus Attucks to President Barack Obama, The Double V illuminates the African American military tradition as a metaphor for their unique and dynamic role in American history. 1.

Harry Belafonte is not just one of the greatest entertainers of our time; he has led one of the great American lives of the last century. Susanne Rostock s SING YOUR SONG lets us share in the struggles, the tragedies, and, most of all, the triumphs of this extraordinary icon. Belafonte grew up, poverty-ridden, in Harlem and Jamaica. After fighting in the Second World War, he realised he wanted a life in the arts. He became a star, and at the same time lived a life of active involvement in breaking down racial barriers that had never been broken before. He had a passionate involvement at the heart of the civil rights movement and countless other political and social causes. SING YOUR SONG is an inspiring story of performance and protest, from a superstar singer and actor who was on the front lines of practically every progressive political battle in modern memory. Along the way he became close to some of the most talented and influential people of the latter half of the 20th Century from fellow students at his acting class Tony Curtis, Marlon Brando, Sidney Poitier and Walter Matthau, to Eleanor Roosevelt, James Baldwin, Bob Dylan, Fidel Castro, Miriam Makeba and Nelson Mandela. But it was his intimate relationship with civil rights hero Dr Martin Luther King that was to be the most significant of his long political life. Belafonte has touched countless lives, both as an artist and an activist and SING YOUR SONG is a rare opportunity to share his story.

Andrew Larkin has recently published a memoir, My life in Boats, Fast, and Slow. The book is a coming-of-age story about a quest, his dream of going to the Olympics rowing. He rowed for the legendary Harry Parker, head crew coach at Harvard for over 50 years. They won gold in the Pan-American games in 1967. In 1968, they went to the Olympics, held in Mexico City, making the finals of the Olympics, coming in sixth. This audiobook details their triumphs and struggles. Some members of the Harvard crew supported at the Olympic project for human rights, which had been supported by Martin Luther King, Jr. The project’s goal was to give voice to the plight of black athletes in the United States in a non-violent fashion.Perhaps the iconic event of the games was the photo of Tommie Smith and John Carlos standing on the victory stand after the 200 m race; they stood with raised fists with black gloves and lowered heads. The book provides the background story of this protest and the minor role the crew had in it. There is discussion of rowing, the history of the Olympics, the issues of amateurism vs professionalism, and the issues of race in sports. These issues remain relevant today.The second part of the book details Larkin’s life after racing. He rowed down the Connecticut River from Northampton to Mystic, CT. There is commentary on the river, the places along the river, the geography of the valley, and the pleasures of messing about in boats. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrew Larkin.

Von Linz kenne ich nur den Bahnhof und die Linzer Torte. In der Literaturgeschichte lebt Linz als Geburtsort Hermann Bahrs und als Sterbeort Adalbert Stifters, im Liede als Stadt der 'Linzerischen Buam'. Alfred Polgar Annäherung an eine offene Stadt: In Linz sollte nach dem Wunsch Hitlers die größte Kunst- und Gemäldegalerie mittels Kunstraub entstehen. Die Auseinandersetzung mit der NS-Zeit, als auch die Demonstrationen der Stahlstadtkinder in den 70ern mündeten in einem zukunftsorientiertem Konzept für die Stadt. Es folgte 1986 die Deklaration zur Friedensstadt, mit dem Ziel jeglichem Extremismus, Rassismus und Antisemitismus gegenzusteuern. 2009 war Linz europäische Kulturhauptstadt. Die abgelegte Zeit: Die literarische Konfrontation mit der Vergangenheit und die Kritik an dem 'langen Schweigen' waren Wegbereiter für ein kulturell neues, offenes Linz mit einem Schwerpunkt auf moderne Kunst und Förderung junger Autorinnen und Autoren. Die Engstirnigkeit die Stifter seiner Zeit beklagte - 'Wo die Bedingungen fehlen, dass etwas werde, da wird auch nichts' - gehört längst der Vergangenheit an. Stahlstadtkinder: Der musikalische Protest kam promt und - auf deutsch. Willi Warma zählte zu den wichtigsten Protagonisten, ihre Texte und ihre Musik waren ungestüm, wild, poetisch als auch politisch. Auch Andy Baum, einer der schillerndsten Exponenten der heimischen Popszene, war in Linz auf ihren Konzerten. Neue Talente wie Harry Ahamer gehen diesen Weg weiter und erweitern dieses Spektrum durch Texte in heimischer Mundart.
