  HEART OF A WOMEN, the fourth volume of Maya Angelou's autobiography, describes the beginning of her writing career and the years when she first became politically active, relating encounters with the Harlem Writers Guild and Martin Luther King, Jr. Two-time Grammy Award-winner Maya Angelou performs her memorable fourth volume of autobiography, which began so auspiciously with I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.
The Heart of a Woman sings with Maya Angelou's eloquent prose and is filled with unforgettable vignettes of famous people, from Billie Holiday to Malcolm X. Even more central is Maya Angelou's chronicle of the joys and the burdens of being a black mother in America and how the son she has cherished so intensely and worked for so devotedly finally grows to be a man
  Her soulful, soaring voice has earned her mythic status. Now, in her own moving words, the woman behind the myth is revealed. The result is a captivating self-portrait of one of this century's most fascinating artists, an Aretha Franklin as real as the songs she sings.
For the first time anywhere, Aretha tells her story--the glorious triumphs as well as the heartbreaking pain. With refreshing candor, Aretha tells it like it is, the way she sees it, the way she lived it.

In Aretha: From These Roots, the singer gets up-close and personal. In rich detail, she paints a vivid picture of a Detroit long gone: the storefront churches, the basement parties, the explosive R&B shows. She documents her life as a single teenage mother, working to balance home life with career, coping with two challenging marriages and, later, romantic relationships that were the source of both tremendous joy and unforeseen heartache.

  At the historically black college of Dillard University in the lush mystical city of New Orleans, the beautiful and serious Leslie Beaudet is struggling with a dark secret of power in a world that is pulling her in many different directions. In the eyes of her Haitian immigrant father, Leslie is a queen who deserves more than the broken dreams and carnage of poverty. To her Black Indian mother, she is a source of pride and strength, a reason for carrying on. To her younger sister, already a mother of two and a high school dropout, Leslie is the only person who cares enough to share her woes. To her brother, she is the victim he failed to protect. To her college peers and teachers, Leslie is a determined, resourceful student, most likely to succeed, yet impenetrably private. When a series of murders befall her New Orlean's community they point in Leslie's direction. Slowly, her friends and relatives realize they've never really known Leslie -- a complicated young woman terrified of failure, struggling with painful family secrets, praying for security that has eluded everyone around her, and craving the power to change her fate, a power that was hidden from her until now...when it's too late to stop her.   There is a door at the end of a silent corridor. And it's haunting Harry Potter's dreams. Why else would he be waking in the middle of the night, screaming in terror?
Here are just a few things on Harry's mind:
- A Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher with a personality like poisoned honey.
- A venomous, disgruntled house-elf
- Ron as keeper of the Gryffindor Quidditch team
- The looming terror of the end-of-term - -Ordinary Wizarding Level exams
. . . and of course, the growing threat of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. In the richest installment yet of J. K. Rowling's seven-part story, Harry Potter is faced with the unreliability of the very government of the magical world and the impotence of the authorities at Hogwarts.
Despite this (or perhaps because of it), he finds depth and strength in his friends, beyond what even he knew, boundless loyalty; and unbearable sacrifice.
Though thick runs the plot, listeners will race through these tapes and leave Hogwarts, like Harry, wishing only for the next train back.
As Harry enters his fifth year at wizard school, it seems the bonds of friendship and trust have never been more sorely tested. Lord Voldemort's rise has opened a rift in the wizarding world between those who believe the truth about his return, and those who prefer to believe it's all madness and lies just more trouble from Harry Potter

If you have ever made change or innovation only to feel soon after that you were backsliding - or if you want to identify what's working in your workplace and make sure that it keeps working - then Fish! Sticks is a program that will help you achieve your goals. Unabridged on 3 compact discs.   This audiobook is a collection of prayers I have written over the years in my prayer journals. They address a variety of topics and situations. It is my prayer that they will spark a light in your heart and you will come to know the peace of God's grace.

Tales, readers can learn how people in real-life businesses boosted morale and improved results by implementing these same principles. Here are specific and tested techniques that can be put to use right away in any kind of business or organization - even at home. And this audiobook stands on its own, so newcomers to the "Fish! Philosophy" will be just as inspired by its examples as the millions who have already read or experienced Fish! In all of the stories, real people discuss honestly and in their own words the difficulties they encountered while trying to transform their workplaces - and how they overcame reluctance, resistance, and employee burnout. Fish! Tales also features dozens of short bites drawn from an even larger variety of business and life situations. Abridged on 3 compact discs.   Ending Violence in Yourself, Your Family, Your Community, and the World - In Creating True Peace, Thich Nhat Hanh uses a beautiful blend of visionary insight, inspiring stories of peacemaking, and a combination of meditation practices and instruction to show us how to take Right Action. An audiobook for people of all faiths, this is a magnum opus -- a compendium of peace practices that can help anyone practice nonviolent thought and behavior, even in the midst of world upheaval.
Creating True Peace tells stories of Thich Nhat Hanh and his students practicing peace during wartime. These demonstrate that violence is an outmoded response we can no longer afford. The simple, but powerful daily actions and everyday interactions that Thich Nhat Hanh recommends can root out violence where it lives in our hearts and minds and help us discover the power to create peace at every level of life -- personal, family, neighborhood, community, state, nation, and world.

  The acclaimed account of slavery in America, illuminating how Africans and Europeans built a nation. A riveting narrative history of America, from the 1607 landing in Jamestown to the brink of the Civil War, Africans in America tells the shared history of Africans and Europeans as seen through the lens of slavery. It is told from the point of view of the Africans who arrived in shackles and endured the terrible dichotomy of this new land founded on the ideal of liberty but dedicated to the perpetuation of slavery. Meticulously researched, this book weaves together the experiences of the colonists, slaves, free and fugitive blacks, and abolitionists to present an utterly original document, a startling and moving drama of the effects of slavery and racism on our conflicted national identity. The result transcends history as we were taught it and transforms the way we see our past.   Using on-location footage, historic images and artifacts, expert commentary and analyses, and special reconstructions, this series offers an authoritative examination of Ancient Egypt and its legacy.

A thorough study of Ramses II, the third king of the 19th dynasty, who was responsible for the building of some of the country's most breathtaking temples.

The rich history of the Land of the Pyramids is extensively detailed in this three-tape series. "Rameses" studies the "great" reign of King Rameses II; boy ruler Tutankhamen and enigmatic Queen Hatsupshet are among the subjects of "The Pharaohs"; and "Ancient Egypt" stretches from the first dynasties to Alexander the Great's conquest of Egypt.
