Black Picket Fences is a stark, moving, and candid look at a section of America that is too often ignored by both scholars and the media: the black middle class. The result of living for three years in "Groveland," a black middle-class neighborhood on Chicago's South Side, sociologist Mary Pattillo-McCoy has written a book that explores both the advantages and the boundaries that exist for members of the black middle class. Despite arguments that race no longer matters, Pattillo-McCoy shows a different reality, one where black and white middle classes remain separate and unequal. "An insightful look at the socio-economic experiences of the black middle class. . . . Through the prism of a South Side Chicago neighborhood, the author shows the distinctly different reality middle-class blacks face as opposed to middle-class whites." —Ebony "A detailed and well-written account of one neighborhood's struggle to remain a haven of stability and prosperity in the midst of the cyclone that is the American economy." —Emerge

Life for thirteen-year-old Maggie Pugh has never been blissful. Her father is withdrawn, and her mother cares only about helping Maggie's little sister, Gardenia, win a beauty pageant. Yet events in the summer of 1960 in Kinship, Georgia, add to Maggie's troubles. Her friend Zeke, a black man who has listened to Maggie's concerns and even given her a camera, is arrested after he uses a restroom designated for white people. Maggie manages to overcome the ignorance and cruelty surrounding her, and she uses the camera Zeke gave her to understand and communicate the white community's abuse of the black to the world. “The courage and vision of the 1960s South...are posted on Spite Fences for all to see. It is a masterful, sobering display.” Booklist “A book of this caliber comes along only rarely.” Family Life “Characters emerge as complex individuals, not pawns of a political agenda; Maggie’s final triumph is a tribute to all who have suffered for justice.” Publishers Weekly Through Krisher’s stunning narrative and achingly real characters, Maggie’s pain and redemption are brought to vivid life.” Kirkus Reviews International Reading Association Award; American Library Award; Bank Street Books Award; Parents Choice Honor book

Nathan's parents devised gruesome, cautionary tales for him and his sister, essentially constructing an invisible fence around the yard and keeping the boy close to home where he'd be safe. Such barriers are not so easy to discard in later life. Nathan no longer believes his parent's stories, and yet they still confine him. But despite his efforts, something from his parents' cautionary tales threatens to creep beneath that invisible border and the enclosed yard might not be as safe and secure as it always seemed--Jacket p. [2].

Swinging for the Fences tells the great stories of baseball's past, from establishment of the color line and the early formation of the barnstorming teams to dazzling hits by black heroes that led the Twins to victory over the Cardinals in 1987. Each chapter focuses on one key player and gives readers an intimate look at the national pastime as it has evolved over the last century. These are stories of the bonds that formed between players, of legendary moments in baseball's past, and of real people whose love of the game kept them playing against tough odds. Featured here are Hall of Famers like Willie Mays, Roy Campanella, and Kirby Puckett and great players like Walter Ball, John Wesley Donaldson, and Bud Fowler, who, because of their race, never made the stats books.
