By Inno Chukuma Onwueme
Imagine yourself having one foot planted on one continent while the other foot is on another continent. A huge transformational step, isn’t it? That’s precisely what Inno Onwueme’s early-life story does. One foot is planted firmly in the traditional African village where age-old customs mingle with poverty, disease, ignorance, and deprivation. The other foot pivots tantalizingly in 1960’s California, at the cutting edge of western civilization. Here, searing social and political upheavals of global significance were shaking the very foundations of modern America and the world. Add to the mix, a second dimension where your journey starts with a decade of colonial rule, and extends through the first decade of post-colonial independence, straddling both eras. And did we mention a civil war, and his becoming a refugee? It was a time of great fomentation personally, nationally and globally. Read this engaging story and enjoy it as a thrilling novel, richly spiced with African proverbs. Then pinch yourself and recall that this is not fiction. It all truly happened. This was a real life being lived in exciting times. Challenge yourself to explore how the changes of the political transition intertwined with Professor Inno’s transformation from an African village boy to a cosmopolitan man in America. Marvel at how the history of an era was acted out in microcosm by this village boy. LIKE A LILY AMONG THORNS takes global and national metamorphosis down to the personal level. It invites you to see history in a new light.

'All I ever wanted was to look good with her walking down my favorite street where the sidewalks were paved with my best intentions amid the fear in people's eyes. Her face became crimson, as if someone had cut off her air. The expressionless look on her face was one that brought about a strange terror in me. I loved her.'

The Waiter is a beautiful, tragic portrait of loneliness. It is the story of a gigantic, isolated black man living in Washington, D.C. who hates and mistrusts people, yet gives much of his life to service.

After his parents blame him for the accidental near death of his younger brother, The Waiter is exiled from home. For years afterward, he lives a resentful and sheltered existence, yet remains preserved away from a growing Washington drug and murder crisis responsible for the deaths of many blacks. Unaware of the crisis, The Waiter clings to an idea of providing the best of service to the antagonistic, fearful patrons who frequent his job as a personal way of defining himself. At the same time, he remains reclusive outside of his work, feeling invisible in an increasingly tense public. In Bryce Range, the posh Washington restaurant that employs him, The Waiter meets and falls in love with Samantha, a beautiful white regular patron who graces his table one weekend night. During the misguided courtship that follows between the two, The Waiter's asphyxiating attempt to love Samatha unknowingly accelerates her private suffering from being molested by her own father as a child. Her pain manifests itself through a severe depression that relinquishes her at times without speech or memory. Upon growing dependent upon his relationship with an increasingly ill Samantha for relief from his own solitary existence, The Waiter employs his tremendous service mentality in an effort to care for her deteriorating mental state. His destructive impatience and ignorance of Samantha's distress soon renders her as nothing more to him than another troublesome patron. Once Samantha's mental illness leaves her bedridden without appetite, conversation, employment or emotion in his own home, The Waiter's pain propels him toward seeking understanding from people in the malevolent city he has spent years shielded from in resentment. After the loss of Samantha, The Waiter is left with a stunning portrait of his own lack of compassion, which gives him the courage to reconcile with himself and his family.

This book describes African Theology/ies and the Bible as a "contemporary mosaic." The book is shaped in the form of a "mosaic" with three patterns. One pattern deals with the Bible and Culture. The second deals with Hermeneutics (interpretations of various biblical texts) as they relate to African cultural contexts and the third part deals with general issues of Gender Missiology and practical Christianity. Some of the themes treated in the book are reading and hearing scripture as a "hermeneutic of grafting", marriage in the Bible, HIV/AIDS care and intervention, Gender challenges and many more. This book is very easy to read and throws light on some aspects of African cultural and theological practices that may even have universal application. Seminaries, Theological/Divinity Schools will find this book very educative and resourceful. People who want to know more about the worldviews expressed in African Theology/ies will appreciate this Book.

Cynthia’s parents migrated, during the 1940s, moving from Texas to California, shortly after World War II. She was born in 1948, growing up in Berkeley, California. She came from a close-knit, hardworking family. She grew up hearing stories of family members and of times long ago in the lumber mill towns located in East Texas. She writes about the little known, experiences of her relatives who worked and lived in the lumber mill towns. These towns were isolated little communities cut off from mainstream society. Cynthia was educated in Northern California schools and attended local community colleges. She describes herself as the “self-designated”, family historian and photographer. Older family members would bequeath to her family heirlooms, artifacts and photographs. She became intrigued by the people in the pictures, of places, of another time. Her love of books and the lifelong desire of owning a bookstore became a reality, during 1992-1996. She planned events for nationally known authors to book signings and other appearances; some were hosted by nearby Solano College. Once retiring from her position as a Human Resources Administrator at a nearby health agency in 2005, she resumed her other dream of researching her family’s history. Cynthia’s most notable accomplishments have been to add more branches to her family tree and she currently provides instruction and workshops at local libraries. One major accomplishment as a result of the workshops has been the formation of a local discussion group, the African American Genealogical Society of Solano County, established in March 2009, from participants of the workshops. The group provides workshops, guest speakers and seminars. The most recent inclusion into the African American Genealogical Society of Northern California has broadened the opportunities and resources to all interested in researching family history.

"Pawned Sovereignty will be a collector's item, alongside Welsing's Isis Papers and Woodson's Mis-Education of the Negro." - Rolling Out Magazine

""Aharone's bold blueprint for black sovereignty sounds more like a long overdue prescription than an incendiary manifesto." - Lloyd Kam Williams, Syndicated Writer

"The themes of Ezrah Aharone’s political book, Pawned Sovereignty, revolve around Black America being a "free," but not a "sovereign" people. The book however does not promote a sovereign movement, but rather a sovereign consciousness and evolutionary outlooks.

"Since sovereignty (not civil rights) is the pinnacle of all freedoms, the book provides Black America with solutions and insightful viewpoints, based on sovereign-minded frames of reference. This approach pierces the core of mainstream body politics and leads to redefined ideals and worldviews which better serve Black/African interests. According to Aharone, "Such outlooks also help bridge the political and philosophical gap that now separates Hip Hop from the Civil Rights/Black Power generation."

"A central premise of Pawned Sovereignty concerns what he calls different "Concepts of Freedom." According to Aharone, Black America's concept of freedom has historically been limited to "Civil Rights, Integration, and Citizenship." However, freedom for White America entails nothing less than "Sovereignty, Independence, and Statehood." Aharone says, "This conceptual distinction is arguably the most consequential, yet most unrecognized, source of racial disharmony and inequities. As a result, certain sociopolitical conditions that Whites would never tolerate have become normalized within the Black Experience."

"Aharone surgically dissects and separates the flaws and misperceptions from the realities of American democracy, while drawing political distinctions between the character of America and the image of America. In prototype fashion, he reconfigures today's sociopolitical landscape as he expounds on 55 original topics.

"Among other things, Aharone asserts that whether the issue is international terrorism; domestic crime and homicides; or inadequate numbers of Blacks in government . . . the solution does not lie within America's current "Brand" of democracy. Pawned Sovereignty addresses the root causes of such issues, while offering prescriptions to remedy both the human and systemic failures of American democracy. The blueprint he outlines will undoubtedly enhance or make you rethink your worldviews.

ARRIVING IN AMERICA – DESTINATION THE SOUTH captures Taylor’s twenty-five year journey in unearthing the buried history of her maternal and paternal family, trekking the paths of her ancestors, before Emancipation (1863). This journey took her back several generations, from the North, South, East and West regions of Africa, to the thirteen colonies of the United States, and the Southern states of Louisiana and Mississippi. This emotion-filled journey travels down an intricate paper trail of federal, state, and local records combined with a collection of oral interviews that enabled Taylor to methodically place together her family puzzle, in five informative chapters. Lovers of sweeping generational epics will find much to rejoice in here. This is a personal saga, but one played out against the broad canvas of American History. Taylor chronicles the lives of her relatives who were once enslaved. She points out the contributions of European immigrants, with the labor of slaves that made this such a great nation. Taylor discusses intermarriages and intermixing between blacks and Indians, the mulatto children of the master, and how her enslaved family may have obtained their surnames. This book focuses on many unanswered questions, and leave the reader with a burning desire to begin their own journey. ARRIVING IN AMERICA – DESTINATION THE SOUTH is written in a narrative style to inspire, entice and propel readers into the fascinating world of genealogy and historical discoveries.
