Woodson, Jaqueline

”Brown girl dreaming” av Jacqueline Woodson ”Raised in South Carolina and New York, Woodson always felt halfway home in each place. In vivid poems, she shares what it was like to grow up as an African American in the 1960s and 1970s, living with the remnants of Jim Crow and her growing awareness of the Civil Rights movement. Touching and powerful, each poem is both accessible and emotionally charged, each line a glimpse into a child’s soul as she searches for her place in the world. Woodson’s eloquent poetry also reflects the joy of finding her voice through writing stories, despite the fact that she struggled with reading as a child. Her love of stories inspired her and stayed with her, creating the first sparks of the gifted writer she was to become. Praise for Jacqueline Woodson: Ms. Woodson writes with a sure understanding of the thoughts of young people, offering a poetic, eloquent narrative that is not simply a story . . . but a mature exploration of grown-up issues and self-discovery.”—The New York Times Book Review” Förlagsinformation Språk: Engelska Genre: Poesi Målgrupp: barn och ungdom Antal sidor: 336 Utg.datum: 2014-08-01 Förlag: Nancy Paulsen Books ISBN:...

As a child, she daydreamed about beats and lyrics, and hummed along with the music from her family s Majestic radio. At age seven, Melba fell in love with a big, shiny trombone, and soon taught herself to play the instrument. By the time she was a teenager, Melba s extraordinary gift for music led her to the world of jazz. She joined a band led by trumpet player Gerald Wilson and toured the country. Overcoming obstacles of race and gender, Melba went on to become a famed trombone player and arranger, spinning rhythms, harmonies, and melodies into gorgeous songs for all the jazz greats of the twentieth century: Randy Weston, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Billie Holiday, and Quincy Jones, to name just a few.

Then, in 1990, Nelson Mandela was released from prison, and apartheid began to crumble.

Walker, Rebecca

”Black Cool-One Thousand Streams of Blackness” av Rebecca Walker ”Black Cool explores the ineffable state and aesthetic of Black Cool. From the effortless reserve of Miles Davis in khakis on an early album cover, to the shock of resistance in black women’s fashion from Angela Davis to Rihanna, to the cadence of poets as diverse as Staceyann Chin and Audre Lorde, Black Cool looks at the roots of Black Cool and attempts to name elements of the phenomena that have emerged to shape the global expectation of cool itself. Buoyed by some of America’s most innovative thinkers on the subject–graphic novelist Mat Johnson, Brown University Professor of African Studies Tricia Rose, critical thinking and cultural icon bell hooks, Macarthur winner Kara Walker, and many more–the book is at once a handbook, a map, a journey into the matrix of another cosmology. It’s a literal periodic table of cool, wherein each writer names and defines their element of choice. Dream Hampton writes about Audacity. Helena Andrews about Reserve, Margo Jefferson on Eccentricity, Veronica Chambers on Genius, and so on. With a foreword by Henry Louis Gates that bridges historical African elements of cool with the path laid out for the future, Black Cool offers a provocative perspective on this powerful cultural legacy. ” Förlagsinformation Språk: Engelska Antal sidor: 160 Utg.datum: 2011-08-18 Förlag: Soft Skull Press Medarbetare: Gates Jr., Henry Louis (förord) ISBN:...

Lewis, John

REKOMMENDATION #11 Linda, bibliotekarie på Serieteket ger sin sista serierekommendation här. Vi tackar för tipsen! ”Om kongressmannen John Lewis livslånga kamp för lika rättigheter inom amerikanska medborgarrättsrörelsen. Intressant historieskrivning.”/Linda ”March: Book 1” av John Lewis & Andrew Aydin, med illustrationer av Nate Powell. ”Congressman John Lewis (GA-5) is an American icon, one of the key figures of the civil rights movement. His commitment to justice and nonviolence has taken him from an Alabama sharecropper’s farm to the halls of Congress, from a segregated schoolroom to the 1963 March on Washington, and from receiving beatings from state troopers to receiving the Medal of Freedom from the first African-American president. Now, to share his remarkable story with new generations, Lewis presents March, a graphic novel trilogy, in collaboration with co-writer Andrew Aydin and New York Times best-selling artist Nate Powell. March is a vivid first-hand account of John Lewis’ lifelong struggle for civil and human rights, meditating in the modern age on the distance traveled since the days of Jim Crow and segregation. Rooted in Lewis’ personal story, it also reflects on the highs and lows of the broader civil rights movement. Book One spans John Lewis’ youth in rural Alabama, his life-changing meeting with Martin Luther King, Jr., the birth of the Nashville Student Movement, and their battle to tear down segregation through nonviolent lunch counter sit-ins, building to a stunning climax on the steps of City Hall. Many years ago, John Lewis and other student activists drew inspiration from the 1958 comic book ”Martin Luther King and the Montgomery Story.” Now, his own comics bring those days to life for a new audience, testifying to a movement whose echoes will be heard for generations.

REKOMMENDATION #10 ”Prisat om folkmordet i Rwanda och historien bakom.” /Linda ”Deogratias, A Tale of Rwanda”, text och bild av Jean-Philippe Stassen. ”This is the story of a boy caught up in an unthinkable horror; a major achievement of storytelling and artistry. This is the harrowing tale of the Tutsi genocide in Rwanda, as seen through the eyes of a boy named Deogratias. He is an ordinary teenager, in love with a girl named Benigne, but Degratias is a Hutu and Benigne is a Tutsi who dies in the genocide, and Deogratias himself plays a part in her death. As the story circles around but never depicts the terror and brutality of an entire country descending into violence. Told with great artistry and intelligence, this book offers a window into a dark chapter of recent human history and exposes the West’s role in the tragedy. Stassen’s interweaving of the aftermath of the genocide and the events leading up to it heightens the impact of the horror, giving powerful expression to the unspeakable, indescribable experience of ordinary Hutus caught up in the violence. Difficult, beautiful, honest and heartbreaking, this is a major work by a masterful artist. ” Språk: Engelska Antal sidor: 96 Utg.datum: 2006-06-01 Förlag: First Second Översättare: Alexis Siegel Illustratör: Jean-Philippe Stassen ISBN:...

Anderson, Ho Che

Lindas serietips fortsätter: REKOMMENDATION #5 ”King: A Comics Biography of Martin Luther King, Jr.” text och bild HoChe Anderson ”Prisad journalistisk biografi om Martin Luther Kings liv, kamp i medborgarrättsrörelsen och död. En viktig bit historia.”/Linda ”A landmark graphic novel about the civil rights leader, complete in one volume. This groundbreaking body of comics journalism collects for first time Anderson’s entire biography of the renowned civil rights leader Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Over a decade in the making, the saga has been praised for its vivid recreation of one of the most tumultuous periods in U.S. history and for its accuracy in depicting the personal and public lives of King, from his birth to his assassination. King probes the life story of one of America’s greatest public figures with an unflinchingly critical eye, casting King as an ambitious, dichotomous figure deserving of his place in history but not above moral sacrifice to get there. Anderson’s expressionistic visual style is wrought with dramatic energy; panels evoke a painterly attention to detail but juxtapose with one another in such a way as to propel King’s story with cinematic momentum. Anderson’s successful use of the graphic novel to tell a major work of nonfiction has drawn favorable comparisons to Art Spiegelman’s Maus: A Survivor’s Tale, Joe Sacco’s Palestine, and Osamu Tezuka’s Adolph. Ho Che Anderson’s biography traces King’s life from his childhood in Atlanta and his education at Booker T. Washington High School, Morehouse College, and the Crozer Theological Seminary and his centrality to the civil rights movement: his first public involvement in civil rights when, in 1955, as President of the Montgomery Improvement Association, he organized the successful Montgomery Bus Boycott; his founding of the Southern Christian leadership Conference in 1957; his help in organizing...

REKOMMENDATION #1 Harvey Pekars bok ”Vietnamnveteranen” och tillika arbetskollegan Robert McNeill och dennes erfarenheter av Vietnamkriget. American Splendor: Unsung Hero av Harvey Pekar, David Collier ”Few authors are able to capture an honest snapshot of everyday life the way Harvey Pekar can. From ruminations on jazz musicians to back problems and traffic tickets, Pekar writes in a clear, unsentimental voice that not only explores the mundane, but celebrates it as well. This time out, Pekar focuses his sharp literary eye on Robert McNeill, an ordinary man who’s lived an extraordinary life. McNeill recounts his time spent as a G.I. in Vietnam, on a tour through that surreal and horrific landscape that even now, thirty years later, we’re struggling to define. Unsung Hero is a tale of cynicism and endurance, tempered by McNeill’s distinct sense of humor and Pekar’s touching wit.” Förlagsinformation Språk: Engelska Antal sidor: 80 Utg.datum: 2003-08-01 Förlag: Dark Horse Comics,U.S. Illustratör: David Collier Volymtitel: Unsung Hero ISBN:...

Her fight will take her far, from the frontlines of the second American Civil War, to the cold, unforgiving reaches of space. She will be called a hero, a traitor, and nearly everything in-between, but all along the way, her courage, her integrity, and her unwavering commitment to that most valuable of rights – liberty – will inspire a movement that will never surrender.” Förlagsinformation En afro-amerikansk superhjälte i serieform för alla engelskaläsande ungdomar!

Martin, Michelle

”Brown gold : milestones of African American children’s picture books, 1845-2002” av Michelle H. Martin ”Brown Gold is a compelling history and analysis of African-American children’s picturebooks from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. At the turn of the nineteenth century, good children’s books about black life were hard to find – if, indeed, young black readers and their parents could even gain entry into the bookstores and libraries. But today, in the ”Golden Age” of African-American children’s picturebooks, one can find a wealth of titles ranging from Happy to be Nappy to Black is Brown is Tan. In this book, Michelle Martin explores how the genre has evolved from problematic early works such as Epaminondas that were rooted in minstrelsy and stereotype, through the civil rights movement, and onward to contemporary celebrations of blackness. She demonstrates the cultural importance of contemporary favorites through keen historical analysis – scrutinizing the longevity and proliferation of the Coontown series and Ten Little Niggers books, for example – that makes clear how few picturebooks existed in which black children could see themselves and their people positively represented even up until the 1960s. Martin also explores how children’s authors and illustrators have addressed major issues in black life and history including racism, the civil rights movement, black feminism, major historical figures, religion, and slavery. Brown Gold adds new depth to the reader’s understanding of African-American literature and culture, and illuminates how the round, dynamic characters in these children’s novels, novellas, and picturebooks can put a face on the past, a face with which many contemporary readers can identify. ” Förlagsinformation Språk: Engelska Antal sidor: 256 Utg.datum: 2004-03-01 Upplaga: illustrated ed annotated ed Förlag: Routledge Illustrationer: 40 black and white photographs ISBN:...

When her beloved father leaves to find work, Deza, Mother, and her older brother Jimmie go in search of him, and end up in a Hooverville outside Flint, Michigan. Jimmie’s beautiful voice inspires him to leave the camp to be a performer, while Deza and Mother find a new home, and cling to the hope that they will find Father. The twists and turns of their story reveal the devastation of the Depression and prove that Deza truly is the Mighty Miss Malone. ”From the Hardcover edition.” Förslagsinformation Läsålder: 10-14 för barn som kan flytande engelska, för barn som läser engelska i skolan passar den här boken åldersgrupp: 14-17.

Representation i barn- och ungdomsböcker...

Den 7-11 augusti 2013 höll föreningen ”African-American Librarians” sin 8:e nationella konferens: ”Culture Keepers VIII: Challenges of the 21st Century-Empowering People, Changing Lives”. Den bestod som vanligt av många olika paneler och samtal. Ett av dessa hade titeln: “Empowering the Voice of the Black Male in Children’s and Teen Lit” och handlade om svarta ungdomars närvaro i litteraturen. Bland annat diskuterades hur litteratur för många svarta ungdomar är en plats där de inte ofta ser sig själva och hur detta påverkar intresse för och vilja att läsa. Illustrationer och framförallt bokomslag lyftes också som viktiga faktorer. I det här fallet diskuterades just pojkars representation men det är såklart lika viktigt att lyfta tjejers. Det här är ett ämne som är viktigt att uppmärksamma i relation till exempelvis pojkars läsning. I första hand handlar det kanske om att förstå att det gör skillnad för motivation och intresse när karaktärer går att identifiera sig med. Vad är det då som gör att en karaktär går att identifiera sig med? Många olika saker och faktorer såklart. Men, i dagens samhälle spelar hudfärg stor roll för alla de erfarenheter som en ung (och gammal) människa dagligen får, då blir det också en viktig faktor även när det gäller litteratur och identifikation. Bara att vara medveten om det gör skillnad, då förändras ju exempelvis urvalet. Artikeln ”NCAAL: Empowering the Voice of the Black Male in Children’s and Teen Lit” av B.A Binns diskuterar panelen.

Visst, mycket är specifikt för amerikanska bibliotek men jag tror vi kan lära oss mycket här som också går att applicera på svenska bibliotek. Överlag tror jag vi kan bli bättre på att blicka utanför de svenska biblioteksgränserna. Det finns mycket att lära och inspireras av. Förlagsinformation: ”The 1970 and 1994 editions of The Black Librarian in America by E.J. Josey singled out racism as an important issue to be addressed within the library profession. Although much has changed since then, this latest collection of 48 essays by Black librarians and library supporters again identifies racism as one of many challenges of the new century. Essays are written by library educators, library graduate students, retired librarians, public library trustees, veteran librarians, and new librarians fresh out of school with great ideas and wholesome energies. They cover such topics as poorly equipped school libraries and the need to preserve the school library, a call to action to all librarians to make the shift to new and innovative models of public education, the advancement in information technology and library operations, special libraries, recruitment and the Indiana State Library program, racism in the history of library and information science, and challenges that have plagued librarianship for decades.This collection of poignant essays covers a multiplicity of concerns for the 21st-century Black librarian and embodies compassion and respect for the provision of information, an act that defines librarianship. The essays are personable, inspiring, and thought provoking for all library professionals, regardless of race, class, or gender.” Redaktör Andrew P. Jackson Redaktör Jr. Julius Jefferson Redaktör...

Garner, Steve

”Whiteness” av Steve Garner Steve Garner diskuterar i den här introduktionen bland annat hur vithetsstudier ofta visar hur samhällsprocesser och institutioner och regelverk upprätthåller olika maktstrukturer via olika processer som är kopplade till vithet. Han förklarar på ett rätt enkelt och ickeabstrakt sätt. Tidskriften ”Mana” ägnade hela sitt sommarnummer 2007 åt att lyfta fram olika perspektiv på vithet, bland annat som en strukturell fördel. Artiklarna i tidskriften tar verkligen diskussionen och teorierna från en lite mer abstrakt nivå till en praktiskt och konkret nivå. Båda aspekter behövs ju. Annars har vithetsstudier och diskussioner om vithet varit ganska osynliga i Sverige med undantag för det senaste året cirka då exempelvis Hynek Pallas, Joanna Rubin Dranger, Victoria Kawesa, Lena Sawyer, Tobias Hübinette och Ylva Habel gjort mycket för att lyfta fram vithetsstudier från en rad olika perspektiv. Den här boken är en välskriven introduktion och ger en bra överblick i ämnet.

Trethewey, Natasha

Tonen i Natasha Tretheweys diktsamling ”Native Guard” (2006) är bitvis som en vacker och lång bluessång. Det är också en stark uppgörelse med historien.Hur den har skrivits. Berättarjagen står på kyrkogårdar, på slagfält under det amerikanska inbördeskriget, på bomullsfälten, på tågen bort från södern, alla som vittnen till en historia som inte nämnt deras existens. På så sätt skriver Tretheways om historien. Och i dikter som bluessonetten ”Graveyard blues” tar hon farväl av sin mor, ett farväl som fortsätter genom boken. Paperback: 64 pages Förlag: Mariner Books (April 3, 2007) ISBN-10: 0618872655 ”Domestic Work”(2000) Sakligt och på väldigt lite utrymme hinner Natasha Trethewey med mycket i diktsamlingen ”Domestic Work”. På bara några rader hinner hon ofta berätta om ett helt liv. Dikterna i ”Domestic Work” är lite som noveller, bara i väldigt små format. De är dörrar som leder till ett myller av olika världar. Språket är gripande och precist och leder oss från historia till historia, från ett snapshot till ett annat. Hon tar ögonblick, ofta från gamla fotografier, beskriver dessa, och blåser sakta liv i dem igen.
