The Education Of Grandpa Bobar

The education of grandpa Bobar has proceeded from an early childhood to what I prefer to call a "second childhood" rather than retirement. What went undetected during all these years, until now, was how excellence was "encrypted" in my education, even beyond the appreciation I have always had for the excellence of my many teachers. I hope this anecdotal memoir with a message about excellence gives the reader an opportunity to look more closely into the role excellence has played in their own educational development.

Susan was an interruption in life. In 1910, a farm needed boys. Her doting fathers attention brought jealousy and resentment from her mother and older brother. The struggle to win her mamas love drove Susan to work hard and be a good girl. At the age of eighteen, Susan married Tom and faced a new set of difficult relationships and hard times. Faced with the Great Depression, Tom accepted the challenge of clearing fifteen acres of lodgepole pine in exchange for a free place to live. Through a subzero winter in a tent; the silent wall treatment of her husband; an abusive, threatening father-in-law; and acute poverty, Susan built her life into a strong bridge of faith. She longed for her bridge to span to the next generation. The greatest problem? Even after twelve years of marriage, there was no one in the next generation.

Anjelica Huston's life, once she turned 15 and moved to London, is a who's who of popular culture from the Rolling Stones in late '60s London to the Chelsea Hotel in New York when she was modelling in the early '70s, to Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty in '70s and '80s Los Angeles, to Hunter Thompson in Aspen. She is a force who has won every possible acting award, working with some of the greatest directors of her time, and a friend to many of the greatest artists, writers, actors and musicians. One could say it was a charmed life, an enviable life, and she would agree. But it is a life also full of so much tragedy and sadness, and Huston writes about both triumph and hardship with extraordinary eloquence and depth. A stunning achievement, her memoir ranks among the best in the genre.

Presenting a look at how racism works to inhibit academic achievement by limiting academic opportunities, this personal narrative weaves stories from an individual's life with an examination of research and popular thought on language use, literacy, and intelligence among people of color. The narrative considers the personal experiences of an academic of color (in this specific case, an American of Puerto Rican heritage) in the light of the history of rhetoric, the English Only movement, current socio- and psycho-linguistic theory, and the writings of Antonio Gramsci and Paulo Freire, among others, as well as the phenomenon of assimilation. Chapters are: (1) The Block; (2) An American of Color; (3) "Spic in English!"; (4) Coming to a Critical Consciousness; (5) "Ingles" in the Colleges; (6) Of Color, Classes, and Classrooms; and (7) Intellectuals and Hegemony. A "Post(modern)script" is attached. (Contains 164 references.) (RS)
