As we go through life’s challenges and phases, our strength and faith in the Lord will begin to manifest great power within. The Holy Spirit will lead you to understand the goodness of the Lord. The Weeds, the Flowers, and the Roses is a story of life’s experiences, endurances, and trials, which are necessary to transform us into the people God wants us to be. He wants us to let our light shine in the midst of it all. I pray that The Weeds, the Flowers, and the Roses will help to encourage somebody, anybody that you can make it and you are important. God will always be right there to protect you. You have to have a plan if you want to accomplish your goals. Just keep on keeping on because no one has arrived yet! My book was written out of strong love, strong hurt and pain, strong will, and shows how God gave me strength to endure it all. For with God nothing shall be impossible. – Luke 1:7 I hope you enjoy reading this book. I pray that it is uplifting to you as it has been to me. God bless you! Amen. He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good: and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love Mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? – Micah 6:8 Thank you, Lord. Love, Tandra

The literary contents of Something to Live For’s 122 pages consist of a variety of works by a single author that includes poems, short stories, and a small bio. Positioned towards the middle of the book are the meaningful twenty-one poems with several of them having the ability to touch any reader’s heart. Starting off is the poem, Remember Me?, a simple dedication to LaTasha Harlins, a young African-American teen killed during the post-L.A. riots of the early 90’s; another memorable poem would be, The Rent is Too Damn High, the humorous poetic play on the phrase by Jimmy McMillan III, the political activist and Vietnam War veteran in Brooklyn, New York. The short stories have the same purpose as the poems, and that is to entertain, enlighten, and provoke thought but they are longer! Beginning after the bio and completing the end of the book are the ‘meat and potatoes’, the eighteen imagination capturing short stories that are quite moving at times and are sure to stay in one’s mind. Each story has its own character overcoming circumstances and situations to prevail and inspire. LaTasha’s Song is another dedication to the slain Ms. Harlins of Los Angeles, it shows the family struggle of a teen girl with the ability to sing and trying to keep herself together along with school and family life through music; in Baby Girl, another inspiring story of a teen girl dealing with having a baby and getting married at an early age; and with Lawson’s Rule, there is the tale of an African-American governor taking matters into her own hands after her city explodes into violence during her election term. Overall, Something to Live For is an exceptional work of fiction that has the capability to become a classic over time and there is the possibility of several short stories having the potential to be transformed into novels by themselves or into short films if scripted properly.

Christmas they just cried with me while I held them in my arms feeling lonely, empty, and confused. I was just sitting there that Christmas morning in front of the burial site tears streaming down my face, and my baby girls in tow. I could not believe that at age 35 I became a single, widowed mom by default. It seemed to me that my whole life was coming to a standstill; no one could ever imagine the pain I was feeling. The love hollowness that I was feeling, the love that was taken away from my family when they killed him, they killed me. So, I had to remain strong for my girls, and they held me up the best way they could. Not knowing that throughout it all her girls made a pact to find their fathers killer and live on in his legacy until they do.

You Don’t Know My Journey I’ve had choices in my life that I had to make, some that didn’t work in my favor, but I never considered them as bad ones, I just took them as a loss and moved on. While going through my journey, it moved slowly and I had to learn patience. I’ve always wanted to do something important, but I knew there were challenges and big steps for acceptance, I started to notice the mouths that would speak around me and had to read the lips that sour the taste of judging words. So I've learned how to block out the negativity. In order to make it work I made some adjustments. My journey started when I first went through something, continuing on was the beginning of my phase. I realized that we make life hard by worrying so much instead of focusing on how to sort a situation. I write my thoughts down when they are strong, not that I would forget, but because they will be useful later. Going through a journey is never an ending because a journey is a lifetime.

Ms. T blows away the whole “don’t hate the player, hate the game” smokescreen to reveal what makes a player a player, what makes his game work, and why women get beaten up in the game. This down-and-dirty guide will leave you empowered with the knowledge to outwit, outlast, and outplay even the player’s player.

Sista Talk: The Personal and the Pedagogical is an inquiry into the questions of how Black women define their existence in a society which devalues, dehumanizes, and silences their beliefs. Placing herself inside of the research, Rochelle Brock invites the reader on a journey of self-exploration, as she and seven of her Black female students investigate their collective journey toward self-awareness in the attempt to liberate their minds and souls from ideological domination. Throughout, Sista Talk attempts to understand the ways in which this self-exploration informs her pedagogy. Combining Black feminist and Afrocentric Theory with critical pedagogy, this book frames the parameters for an Afrowomanist pedagogy of wholeness for teaching Black students.

The demand of white, affluent society that all Americans should speak, read, and write "proper" English causes many people who are not white and/or middle class to attempt to "talk in a way that feel peculiar to [their] mind," as a character in Alice Walker's The Color Purple puts it. In this book, Sonja Lanehart explores how this valorization of "proper" English has affected the language, literacy, educational achievements, and self-image of five African American women—her grandmother, mother, aunt, sister, and herself. Through interviews and written statements by each woman, Lanehart draws out the life stories of these women and their attitudes toward and use of language. Making comparisons and contrasts among them, she shows how, even within a single family, differences in age, educational opportunities, and social circumstances can lead to widely different abilities and comfort in using language to navigate daily life. Her research also adds a new dimension to our understanding of African American English, which has been little studied in relation to women.
