            Public Image Private Shame will help students look, in depth, at the modern civil rights movement of the 1950s to mid 1970s. Importantly, this book provides exciting new material that encourages students to see that the modern movement belonged to a tradition of protest that firs...t began on the shores of Africa and continues to this day. A special feature of Public Image Private Shame provides fresh perspectives from a range of people, including movement leaders, grassroots supporters, white supremacists and political leaders. The last two chapters of the book invite students to examine race relations in the US today, and in particular, the importance, impact and issues surrounding Barack Obama's meteoric rise in becoming the nation's first democratically elected African-American president. The content of this book and the depth at which it is written means it can be studied at Level 1 and Level 2.

            aoeWritten with love, anger, regret, and other profound emotions, this is a truly important book that deserves the widest readership.a -Booklist (starred review) On the night of October 6, 1998, a gay twenty-one-year-old college student named Matthew Shepard was lured from a Wyom...ing bar by two young men, savagely beaten, tied to a remote fence, and left to die. Gay Awareness Week was beginning at the University of Wyoming, and the keynote speaker was Leslea Newman, discussing her book Heather Has Two Mommies. Shaken, the author addressed the large audience, but she remained haunted by Matthew's murder. October Mourning, a novel in verse, is her deeply felt response to the events of that tragic day. Using her poetic imagination, the author creates fictitious monologues from various points of view, including the fence Matthew was tied to, the stars that watched over him, the deer that kept him company, and Matthew himself. More than two decades later, the Stonewall Award-winning cycle of sixty-eight poems still serves as a powerful, enduring tribute to Matthew Shepard's life. This paperback edition features a new foreword as well as an epilogue, an afterword, discussion questions, explanations of poetic forms, and resources.
