African American Domestics in Washington, D.C., 1910-1940
Author: Elizabeth Clark-Lewis
Publisher: Smithsonian Institution
Category: Social Science
This oral history portrays the lives of African American women who migrated from the rural South to work as domestic servants in Washington, DC in the early decades of the twentieth century. In Living In, Living Out Elizabeth Clark-Lewis narrates the personal experiences of eighty-one women who worked for wealthy white families. These women describe how they encountered—but never accepted—the master-servant relationship, and recount their struggles to change their status from “live in” servants to daily paid workers who “lived out.” With candor and passion, the women interviewed tell of leaving their families and adjusting to city life “up North,” of being placed as live-in servants, and of the frustrations and indignities they endured as domestics. By networking on the job, at churches, and at penny savers clubs, they found ways to transform their unending servitude into an employer-employee relationship—gaining a new independence that could only be experienced by living outside of their employers' homes. Clark-Lewis points out that their perseverance and courage not only improved their own lot but also transformed work life for succeeding generations of African American women. A series of in-depth vignettes about the later years of these women bears poignant witness to their efforts to carve out lives of fulfillment and dignity.

Publisher: Trafford Publishing
We live in a crazy world because of the crappy people in it and all the good people can't change that. We need to change the view of society to reflect the better of what we as humans can be, we have to exact changes in order to get change. The thoughts in this book, not so much based on morals or God, but rather on living a good life and doing so proudly, and defending such a life. The premise is that from this day forward we live better and teach by example.
From Personal Mind to Spiritual Mind

What is the Supermind? Supermind is the highest level of mind, closest to the Creator. Sri Aurobindo has spoken of the Supermind as God's vast realm. The Supermind is a highly elevated plane of mind and personality, at once within us and around us. It is the locale of goodness and altruism. It is the storehouse of the vast powers of Nature that we contain. It is our potential.The Supermind is the location of origin, where creation is created and thoughts are thought. Thus, the Supermind is a reflection of the God-Mind. We can achieve this through aspiration, training and exercise in the control of mind. We accomplish this when we teach the personality to surrender to a higher authority, to lay aside its ego and to open to the Divine message. When this is realized, we see more and more of the Higher World(s). We learn what it is to live in these regions. Some of this information is now becoming available to our culture as we learn more about past lives, out-of-body experiences and near-death happenings. These experiences are accompanied by feelings of awe, bliss, beneficence, all of which describe the ambience of the Higher Range, are and what we have learned, we let others stand on our shoulders making their journey easier, their height higher, and their vision wider. We transmit; we radiate our experience.

Applying John's Gospel
Author: Leonard J. Martini
Publisher: Holy Fire Publishing
The apostle John referred to himself as, "the disciple whom Jesus loved." That describes one who lives in view of another's love...like a bride who takes the identity of her husband by taking his last name. So it should be with every Christian living in the name of Jesus. This book presents three fresh perspectives--- the "Way of Living Water," the "Witness of Truth," and the "I am Life" methods---John uses in his gospel to prove Jesus is the Christ who brings eternal life to the believer, and how that eternal life, with all its benefits, should be applied right now for Living in His Name, for God's purpose and glory here on earth. Living our lives in His name means living in the way Jesus lived, living in His truth, and living in His life of the Holy Spirit.
A history of gay and lesbian activism in Australia
Author: Graham Willett
Publisher: Allen & Unwin
From law reform to Lesbian Sex Wars, from Young Gays to Grey Gays, via demos, drag and dancing. For 40 years, Australian lesbians, gay men and their friends have struggled to change the way homosexuals are treated and thought about. And they have been remarkably successful. Laws dating back to King Henry VIII have been repealed in all states and territories. But even before that was achieved, demands for full legal equality had moved on to the public agenda; the points of view of homosexual men and women became part of mainstream media. In transforming society, lesbians and gay men have also transformed themselves. The old attitudes of fear and self-loathing are gone. Gay Pride is now a powerful force in the lives of millions. The communities that have been forged along the way are a significant part of Australia's rich multicultural mix - and major players in the economy. Living Out Loud is the first full-length account of this remarkable movement and the first to attempt a national perspective. Lively, thoughtful and often surprising, this is a story of events and people who changed society.

Mentalities and Social Orders
Author: Heinrich Fichtenau,Patrick J. Geary
Publisher: University of Chicago Press
"Fichtenau delivers a fascinating view of tenth-century Europe on the eve of the second millenium. He writes this hoping we, on the eve of the third millennium, will take time also to look at who we are and at our world. . . . This engaging book lucidly carries the reader through an amazing amount of material. Medieval scholars will find it resourceful and challenging; the nonscholar will find it fascinating and enlightening."—A. L. Kolp, Choice "Living in the Tenth Century resembles an anthropological field study more than a conventional historical monograph, and represents a far more ambitious attempt to see behind the surface of avowals and events than others have seriously attempted even for much more voluminously documented periods. . . . It is remarkably rich and readable."—R.I. Moore, Times Higher Education Supplement "Fichtenau offers a magnificent survey of all the main spheres of life: the social order, the rural economy, schooling and religious belief and practice in both the secular and monastic church. His command, especially of the narrative sources, their fine nuances of attitude emotion and underlying norms, is masterly and he employs them here with all the sensitiveness and feel for the subject that have always been the hallmarks of his work."—Karl Leyser, Francia

Description Overcoming the label of learning disability may be an achievement but also triumphing over the obstacles caused by prejudice at being labeled with schizophrenia is highly unusual. Philip Hill uses his auto-biographical account to describe the ways in which he overcame the rejection of his peer group at schoolneighbourhood and how he used his experiences of mental illness to help others like himself before going on to train as a social worker. This amazing account of triumph over adversity should be an inspiration to other people who find themselves labeled with severe mental illness. The honest and thought provoking way Philip describes his symptoms should enable the layperson to gain an 'insiders' insight on what it like to suffer from the active symptoms of Schizophrenia. This book will hopefully challenge the stereotypes surrounding Schizophrenia. About the AuthorPhilip Hill has spent most of his life living in various parts of Birmingham. Philip is a twin and his twin brother Paul is a neighbour. Furthermore Philip has an elder sister and an elder brother he has not seen recently. Being brought up with his twin brother and adopted sister Lynn by foster parents gave him much needed stability after living in a children's home.Experiencing neglect in a children's home at the early stages of development led to him being sent to a special school at the age of five. He learned to read by the age of ten and eventually went on to Leicester University to study Economics. At Leicester University Philip struggled with mixing with his peer group and despite reasonable academic progress had a nervous breakdown after passing his finals. His diagnosis of Schizophrenia would be a label he will now have to endure for the rest of his life. After having a relapse Philip eventually found long term work. Then at the age of 32 Philip went to Birmingham University where he gained a masters degree in Economic Development and Policy. He then went on to study for a doctorate but ended up with the consolation prize of a Masters of Philosophy research degree. Finally drawing on his skills as a support worker working with those diagnosed with mental health issues, he applied to go on a social work course. Philip is now a professional social worker working with adults with learning disabilities. He is also happily married to Geraldine.

Proclaiming and Living Out the Gospel
Author: Matt Carter,Darrin Patrick
Within ten years, nine out of ten people will claim “no religious affiliation.” Many of these people will live in urban areas. Church leaders must learn how to effectively engage in ministry with this urban core, a group that includes both the poor and marginalized as well as the wealthy and influential. This book will guide you in developing a philosophy of ministry that can lead to restoration and renewal in your city. Matt Carter and Darrin Patrick explain the biblical, theological, and historical foundations of ministry within the urban core, and how to plant churches where the gospel is not only faithfully preached and shared but also brings substantial benefits to those living in the community. For the City relates the wisdom gleaned from years of serving their cities for the sake of God’s kingdom. Carter and Patrick practically equip church leaders and Christians to look at their city as a mission field where individuals and churches can faithfully proclaim the gospel and live out the reality of a community changed and transformed by its message.
