The Lessons of Ubuntu in PDF, EPUB, Tuebl, Mobi and Kindle:

A roadmap to healing America’s wounds, bridging the racial divide, and diminishing our anger. Mathabane touched the hearts of millions of people around the world with his powerful memoir, Kaffir Boy, about growing up under apartheid in South Africa and was praised by Oprah Winfrey and Bill Clinton. In his new book, The Lessons of Ubuntu: How an African Philosophy Can Inspire Racial Healing in America, Mathabane draws on his experiences with racism and racial healing in both Africa and America, where he has lived for the past thirty-seven years, to provide a timely and provocative approach to the search for solutions to America’s biggest and most intractable social problem: the divide between the races. In his new book, Mathabane tells what each of us can do to become agents for racial healing and justice by learning how to practice the ten principles of Ubuntu, an African philosophy based on the concept of our shared humanity. The book’s chapters on obstacles correlate to chapters on Ubuntu principles: The Teaching of Hatred vs. Empathy Racial Classification vs. Compromise Profiling vs. Learning Mutual Distrust vs. Nonviolence Black Bigotry vs. Change Dehumanization vs. Fogiveness The Church and White Supremacy vs. Restorative Justice Lack of Empathy vs. Love The Myth That Blacks and Whites Are Monolithic vs. Spirituality Self-Segregation: American Apartheid vs. Hope By practicing Ubuntu in our daily lives, we can learn that hatred is not innate, that even racists can change, and that diversity is America’s greatest strength and the key to ensuring our future. Concerned by the violent protests on university campuses and city streets, and the killing of black men by the police, Mathabane challenges both blacks and whites to use the lessons of Ubuntu to overcome the stereotypes and mistaken beliefs that we have about each other so that we can connect as allies in the quest for racial justice.

In The Proud Liberal, bestselling author Mark Mathabane tackles head-on two of America¿s most current and explosive issues ¿ terrorism and race. Drawing on voluminous research on the confluence of domestic and international terrorism, and on 14 years of closely observing the interplay of politics and race while living in the South, Mathabane weaves a fascinating tale of what happens when a leader abandons his principles in order to win political office. When Lawrence Ramsey decides to run for governor of North Carolina, he has no idea that the fate of his beloved daughter¿s newborn child will become central to the struggle to save America from Bin Laden¿s plan to carry out the worst terrorist act since 9/11. Skillfully blending fact with fiction, The Proud Liberal is replete with unforgettable characters, exotic locations and sudden twists. This tour-de-force political thriller will keep the reader guessing until the very end and will galvanize all those who care about justice, America¿s future, and the world¿s struggle against terrorism.Mark Mathabane came of age in apartheid South Africa and has lived and worked in America since 1978. He is the author of Kaffir Boy, Kaffir Boy in America, Love in Black and White, African Women: Three Generations, and Miriam's Song.

From E. Lockhart, author of the highly acclaimed, New York Times bestseller We Were Liars, which John Green called "utterly unforgettable," comes The Boy Book, the second book in the uproarious and heartwarming Ruby Oliver novels. Here is how things stand at the beginning of newly-licensed driver Ruby Oliver's junior year at Tate Prep: • Kim: Not speaking. But far away in Tokyo. • Cricket: Not speaking. • Nora: Speaking--sort of. Chatted a couple times this summer when they bumped into each other outside of school--once shopping in the U District, and once in the Elliot Bay Bookstore. But she hadn't called Ruby, or anything. • Noel: Didn't care what anyone thinks. • Meghan: Didn't have any other friends. • Dr. Z: Speaking. • And Jackson. The big one. Not speaking. But, by Winter Break, a new job, an unlikely but satisfying friend combo, additional entries to The Boy Book and many difficult decisions help Ruby to see that there is, indeed, life outside the Tate Universe.
