I was born a slave : an anthology of classic slave narratives by Yuval Taylor( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 1,116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1760 and 1902, more than 200 book-length autobiographies of ex-slaves were published; together they form the basis for all subsequent African American literature. I Was Born a Slave collects the 20 most significant "slave narratives." They describe whippings, torture, starvation, resistance, and hairbreadth escapes; slave auctions, kidnappings, and murders; sexual abuse, religious confusion, the struggle of learning to read and write; and the triumphs and difficulties of life as free men and women. Many of the narratives--such as those of Frederick Douglass and Harriet Jacobs--have achieved reputations as masterpieces; but some of the lesser-known narratives are equally brilliant. This unprecedented anthology presents them unabridged, providing each one with helpful introductions and annotations, to form the most comprehensive volume ever assembled on the lives and writings of the slaves. Volume one (1770-1849) includes the narratives of James Albert Ukawsaw Gronniosaw, Olaudah Equiano (Gustavus Vassa), William Grimes, Nat Turner, Charles Ball, Moses Roper, Frederick Douglass, Lewis and Milton Clarke, William Wells Brown, and Josiah Henson. Volume Two (1849-1866) includes the narratives of Henry Bibb, James W. C. Pennington, Solomon Northup, John Brown, John Thompson, William and Ellen Craft, Harriet Jacobs (Linda Brent), Jacob D. Green, James Mars, and William Parker
Frederick Douglass : selected speeches and writings by Frederick Douglass( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 878 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the greatest African American leaders and one of the most brilliant minds of his time, Frederick Douglass spoke and wrote with unsurpassed eloquence on almost all the major issues confronting the American people during his life - from the abolition of slavery to women's rights, from the Civil War to lynching, from American patriotism to black nationalism." "Between 1950 and 1975, Philip S. Foner collected the most important of Douglass's hundreds of speeches, letters, articles, and editorials into an impressive five-volume set, now long out of print. Abridged, adapted, and supplemented with several important texts that Foner did not include, Frederick Douglass: Selected Speeches and Writings presents the most significant, insightful, and elegant short works of Douglass's massive oeuvre."--Jacket

The future of jazz by Will Friedwald( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jazz is now 100 years old, a venerable American institution predicated on the unpredictable. But recent signs - ranging from Ken Burn's documentary Jazz: A History of America's Music to the dominance of reissues of jazz over new recordings - have made many question whether jazz's past has now become more important than its future, or whether jazz has any future at all. In this book, composed entirely via e-mail, 10 leading jazz critics take on the various issues surrounding jazz's future - the dominance of mainstream jazz, its spread around the world, the difficulty of making a living playing it, the growth of repertory jazz, the dearth of interest among young African Americans, the paradoxically backward-looking nature of the avant-garde, and many others. Their conclusions are as surprising, witty, and edgy as the music itself."--Jacket

"Over 120 autobiographies of ex-slaves were published as books or pamphlets between the mid-eighteenth and early twentieth centuries; all subsequent African American literature is descended from these seminal works. [This book] collects ... significant slave narratives and arranges them chronologically ...

One, born free, was kidnapped and enslaved for twelve years; one was experimented upon by a doctor to see how deep his black skin went; one disguised herself as a male slaveowner; one hid herself from a lustful master in a crawlspace for seven years; one delighted in playing cruel practical jokes; one went whaling to avoid being recaptured; and one led an armed posse to battle would-be kidnappers."--Back cover

The quest for authenticity in popular music by H Barker( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The quest for authenticity, for the 'real', is a dominant factor in musical taste - be it the folklorist's search for forgotten bluesmen, the rock critic's elevation of raw power over sophistication, or importance of bullet wounds to the careers of hip-hop artists. This book looks at the myth of what it means to be 'real' and 'fake' in pop music
