Local poet and singer Patricia West-Jones has been composing poetry since 1998. Originally from New York, but born in Atlantic City, West-Jones father died when she was seven years old. The years following were troubled times. She remembers sitting for hours sucking her fingers, something she continued to do for many years, seeking comfort. Now she finds peace and comfort writing poetry and short stories. A wife and mother of two daughters and a son, Pat works for the Pleasantville School District in the Counseling Department. West Jones says that for her life is like the following: One day she was working out on a track that went round and old house that sits on the bay. She is walking bent over because the breeze off the water had picked up and was pressing her back; it was very difficult to go forward. When she rounded the bend, the wind was now at her back pushing her forward. So for Pat, life at times presses her back but with prayer and determination she presses her way as her writing moves her ever closer to peace. Patricia West-Jones poems will appeal to a diverse audience: Women, mothers, and Christians, as well as those who have struggled to find themselves on their life journey
And the Truth that Sets Them Free
Author: Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth
Publisher: Moody Publishers
Counter the lies that keep you from abundant living. Satan is the master deceiver; his lies are endless. And the lies Christian women believe are at the root of most of their struggles. "Many women live under a cloud of personal guilt and condemnation," says Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth. "Many are in bondage to their past. Others are gripped by fear of rejection and a longing for approval. Still others are emotional prisoners." In this bestseller, Lies Women Believe, Nancy exposes those areas of deception most commonly believed by Christian women—lies about God, sin, priorities, marriage and family, emotions, and more. She then sheds light on how we can be delivered from bondage and set free to walk in God's grace, forgiveness, and abundant life. Nancy offers the most effective weapon to counter and overcome Satan's deceptions: God's truth!

Black Barbers and Barber Shops in America
Author: Quincy T. Mills
Publisher: University of Pennsylvania Press
Today, black-owned barber shops play a central role in African American public life. The intimacy of commercial grooming encourages both confidentiality and camaraderie, which make the barber shop an important gathering place for African American men to talk freely. But for many years preceding and even after the Civil War, black barbers endured a measure of social stigma for perpetuating inequality: though the profession offered economic mobility to black entrepreneurs, black barbers were obliged by custom to serve an exclusively white clientele. Quincy T. Mills traces the lineage from these nineteenth-century barbers to the bustling enterprises of today, demonstrating that the livelihood offered by the service economy was crucial to the development of a black commercial sphere and the barber shop as a democratic social space. Cutting Along the Color Line chronicles the cultural history of black barber shops as businesses and civic institutions. Through several generations of barbers, Mills examines the transition from slavery to freedom in the nineteenth century, the early twentieth-century expansion of black consumerism, and the challenges of professionalization, licensing laws, and competition from white barbers. He finds that the profession played a significant though complicated role in twentieth-century racial politics: while the services of shaving and grooming were instrumental in the creation of socially acceptable black masculinity, barbering permitted the financial independence to maintain public spaces that fostered civil rights politics. This sweeping, engaging history of an iconic cultural establishment shows that black entrepreneurship was intimately linked to the struggle for equality.
Race, Nation, and the Politics of Landownership in Oklahoma, 1832-1929
Author: David A. Chang
Publisher: Univ of North Carolina Press
The Color of the Land brings the histories of Creek Indians, African Americans, and whites in Oklahoma together into one story that explores the way races and nations were made and remade in conflicts over who would own land, who would farm it, and who would rule it. This story disrupts expected narratives of the American past, revealing how identities--race, nation, and class--took new forms in struggles over the creation of different systems of property. Conflicts were unleashed by a series of sweeping changes: the forced "removal" of the Creeks from their homeland to Oklahoma in the 1830s, the transformation of the Creeks' enslaved black population into landed black Creek citizens after the Civil War, the imposition of statehood and private landownership at the turn of the twentieth century, and the entrenchment of a sharecropping economy and white supremacy in the following decades. In struggles over land, wealth, and power, Oklahomans actively defined and redefined what it meant to be Native American, African American, or white. By telling this story, David Chang contributes to the history of racial construction and nationalism as well as to southern, western, and Native American history.
