Jenny Reen and the Jack Muh Lantern
By Irene Smalls, Illustrated by Keinyo White "Sister Louisa cares for Jenny Reen in the slave quarter while her parents work in the files. From Louisa, Jenny learns of love, as well as the story of the Jack Muh Lantern with its googly google eyes, which comes out on All Hallow's Eve and drags unsuspecting people into the swamp. "Author's Note: "This story is about a time when black people's knowledge was created by imagination and passed on by tongue. It was against the law to teach a black person to read and write, so the whys of the world were reasoned by their hearts and minds. This story is based on authentic African-American folktales, songs and oral histories." © 1996 Hard cover easy reader with full-page illustrations.

By R.R. Kasat "This book is a collection of true stories, poetry, photographs and drawings. It is where I've taken myself, sometimes for no reason in particular except tof the sake fo seeing. Sometimes I'm not satisfied until I reach a dot on the map, and if nothing's there, at least I no longer have any questions about what I am missing. Traveling on a boat around the world, hitchhiking across the United States, and journeying alone through Africa are just the details. The conscious struggles I faced with being born privileged are still occurring. My method of survival . . . trust before suspicion." © 2002 paperback 220 pages

Everlutionary: Escape Extinction
By Hawah =(*-*)= "It appears diversity allows life to thrive in any conditions, and therefore, diversity is necessary for the existence of different species. Without diversity, humans would have never come to be -- more reason for the strong to be eternally grateful to the weak, and for humans to maintain and initiate peace."
