Liberia was founded by the American Colonization Society (ACS) in the 1820s as an African refuge for free blacks and liberated American slaves. While interest in African migration waned after the Civil War, it roared back in the late nineteenth century with the rise of Jim Crow segregation and disfranchisement throughout the South. The back-to-Africa movement held great new appeal to the South's most marginalized citizens, rural African Americans. Nowhere was this interest in Liberia emigration greater than in Arkansas. More emigrants to Liberia left from Arkansas than any other state in the 1880s and 1890s. In Journey of Hope, Kenneth C. Barnes explains why so many black Arkansas sharecroppers dreamed of Africa and how their dreams of Liberia differed from the reality. This rich narrative also examines the role of poor black farmers in the creation of a black nationalist identity and the importance of the symbolism of an ancestral continent. Based on letters to the ACS and interviews of descendants of the emigrants in war-torn Liberia, this study captures the life of black sharecroppers in the late 1800s and their dreams of escaping to Africa.

Click. The noise, startlingly strong, ricocheted off the inside of the stall and seemed to echo in the silence surrounding her. Zoe's legs shook, and her feet became weak. Was that-- The gray door unlocked from within. Zoe's mind told her to run, but her legs did not obey. Faster than she could blink, her eyes met the muzzle of pitch-black darkness. That was all she could see--darkness. Until it trembled before her and she could make out the tip of the outer, silvery, metal ring. A pistol pressed deeply into her skull. Zoe's eyes tried to follow the barrel, sliding along its wobbling gray outline up to its holder: a terrified boy. "Craig!" Zoe's past is back to haunt her, and she's not sure she is ready to face it. Life isn't always black-and-white, even as a Christian. So what happens when there is baggage from the past or when life's raw realities come catapulting in? Will Zoe give in to the darkness that wants her back? Will she lose her faith when she feels God, her friends, and now her family, are gone as she's put into foster care? Will she face the gray of her life doing God's will, standing up to her fears, and forgiving the person responsible for them?

In 2008, Kevin Matthews, a well-known ABC and CBS radio personality in Chicago, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. As the drive-time radio host for seventeen years and also the voice of his sports commentator, Jim Shorts, and other characters, Matthews entertained ten million listeners weekly, sold out every appearance in the Midwest, and performed in front of 65,000 fans at Grant Park. He traveled around the world, met the famous, had babies named after him, and helped countless charities. He entertained hundreds of thousands of people inside prisons, army bases, and backyards. His promotions included comedy jams, a band, barbeque throw downs, and golf outings. Broken Mary is Matthews' story of his early years in radio and stand-up comedy, his successful career, his struggle with MS, his awakening to the dignity of women, and, importantly, his chance encounter with a broken statue of Mary left next to a dumpster and all that happened as a result. Told with Matthews' signature good humor, this confession of the brokenness of mankind is touchingly honest, personally inspiring, and full of hope.
