Quality of education is a universal concern, but what happens when students start to fall between the cracks in the system? As part of her research for The rose that grew from concrete, Diane Wishart interviewed many at-risk students in an urban high school, including a number of Aboriginal students. What Wishart discovered weren't statistics, but teens and their experiences, needs, and personalities. The qualitative analysis that comes from these interviews doesn't supply a blueprint to fix the educational system. However, it does give a fresh, objective viewpoint for policy makers, scholars, teachers, and the general public to consider.

This is an analogy of the birth of Jesus Christ and His growing up to the potential He was sent for. Therefore, it's a Christmas story not yet told. Here is a rose that grew out of the concrete; through hope and prayer she learned how to walk without having feet. Her gifts taught her how to survive, and it was her hope that kept her alive. Boundless is the rose that grew out the concrete. Funny it seems, but by keeping her dreams, she learned how to breathe fresh air when only a few even cared. Boundless is the rose that grew out of the concrete.

This legendary rapper was gunned down in Las Vegas in 1996, but not before having multi-platinum releases and a promising acting career. A prime example of the line rappers walk between street credibility and their art, Tupac pushed the East-West rap feud both as a real fight and as a tool to influence media coverage of his career. Tupac's raps were part traditional social protest and part gritty descriptions of street life in urban neighborhoods. This book includes details of his life, career, and like the other Essential Lives Cut Short books, covers the controversies surrounding his life and death. Lives Cut Short is a series in Essential Library, an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.

These fifty-two spiritual reflections cover a variety of topics that will be of interest to the spiritually curious who want to know more about Christ, the Black Church, Urban America, and even, the late rapper, poet, and actor, Tupac Shakur. Some entries are autobiographical testimonies; others are short theological essays. Most offer the reader ways to apply biblical truth to life’s situations; and more than a few include a social critique of the worst elements of American culture, coupled with references to noteworthy people and events in African American history. Each entry will provide food for the mind, heart, and soul. The title of this book was inspired by the powerful metaphor depicted in Shakur’s famous poem about a rose that resiliently grows up above unyielding forces—forces meant to suppress its potential. These essays originally were crafted through the author’s weekly discipline of preparing spiritual reflections for publication in his congregation’s Sunday morning worship bulletin. What is presented here are expanded or modified versions of these weekly entries. Though none were, or are sermons, together, they are presented in the chronology and thematic focus that Pastor Bryant normally lifts up during the cycle of a year of preaching. The themes reflect those liturgical celebrations that are recognized in many African American mainline congregations from January to December: Epiphany, Black History Month, Lent, Easter, Mother’s Day, Pentecost, Father’s Day, Women’s Day, Ordinary Time, Youth Sunday, Stewardship Month, Senior’s Day, Friends and Family Sunday, Men’s Day, Advent, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and Watch Night. It is the author’s hope that these pastoral essays, each one like a rose ascending and pushing upward, will exalt the beauty of Christ, the strength of faith, the power of the Word of God, and the fascinating story of what God has done and is doing in the world, especially through the lives of those who have been, in the words of the Negro Spiritual, “buked and scorned...and talked about as sure as you were born.”

"Enemy Land" is a new book by a talented author named Nicholas Kyasima. Enemy Land is a collection of short stories all of which are presented in different angles. The short stories can not be said to be poems even though that's what they seem. Some stories may appear as love songs, other stories might look like a means of expression by someone who is really hurt. Poems or not, this book carries serious entertainment and most importantly of all, knowledge in the most simplest of ways. As the reader, you don't get a chance to be bored. For example, in the first chapter of Enemy Land, a guy who is secretly in love with a woman, asks her to meet him at the London bridge station she doesn't show up. This causes wretchedness which is expressed line by line and as you read it, you'll feel like it is you who has had the experience. It is a work of a genius. This book Enemy Land carries stories that are ridiculously full of expression. So much so that a teenage boy who wants to play he's music system loud on full blast listening to Tupac or 50 cent would sit down and read this book. If boys that are not into reading books love Enemy Land imagine how grown men and women that are into books feel about it. There's no telling how many genres are presented in Enemy Land. Apart from poems and love stories as mention earlier, in this book, you'll also have war stories based on the harsh reality in the ghetto areas of London. These are the most dramatic ones especially when you adapt the persona of a Black African Boy from which the stories were written. Once again, it's genius. Enemy Land has so many perspectives and with that, it is made for everyone to enjoy. Nobody is left out. On top of all that you'll gain new experiences from reading this book because the person that wrote it (Nicholas Kyasima) based it on his real life as it is now. Nothing in this book is fiction. It's all reality.
