Know My Name [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Know My Name by Chanel Miller Book Resume:

Universally acclaimed, rapturously reviewed, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for autobiography, and an instant New York Times bestseller, Chanel Miller's breathtaking memoir "gives readers the privilege of knowing her not just as Emily Doe, but as Chanel Miller the writer, the artist, the survivor, the fighter." (The Wrap). "I opened Know My Name with the intention to bear witness to the story of a survivor. Instead, I found myself falling into the hands of one of the great writers and thinkers of our time. Chanel Miller is a philosopher, a cultural critic, a deep observer, a writer's writer, a true artist. I could not put this phenomenal book down." --Glennon Doyle, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Love Warrior and Untamed "Know My Name is a gut-punch, and in the end, somehow, also blessedly hopeful." --Washington Post She was known to the world as Emily Doe when she stunned millions with a letter. Brock Turner had been sentenced to just six months in county jail after he was found sexually assaulting her on Stanford's campus. Her victim impact statement was posted on BuzzFeed, where it instantly went viral--viewed by eleven million people within four days, it was translated globally and read on the floor of Congress; it inspired changes in California law and the recall of the judge in the case. Thousands wrote to say that she had given them the courage to share their own experiences of assault for the first time. Now she reclaims her identity to tell her story of trauma, transcendence, and the power of words. It was the perfect case, in many ways--there were eyewitnesses, Turner ran away, physical evidence was immediately secured. But her struggles with isolation and shame during the aftermath and the trial reveal the oppression victims face in even the best-case scenarios. Her story illuminates a culture biased to protect perpetrators, indicts a criminal justice system designed to fail the most vulnerable, and, ultimately, shines with the courage required to move through suffering and live a full and beautiful life. Know My Name will forever transform the way we think about sexual assault, challenging our beliefs about what is acceptable and speaking truth to the tumultuous reality of healing. It also introduces readers to an extraordinary writer, one whose words have already changed our world. Entwining pain, resilience, and humor, this memoir will stand as a modern classic. Chosen as a BEST BOOK OF 2019 by The New York Times Book Review, The Washington Post, TIME, Elle, Glamour, Parade, Chicago Tribune, Baltimore Sun, BookRiot

You Will Know My Name by Carolynn G. A. Brooks Book Resume:

Looking at Carolynn Brooks, people always saw someone who had her act together: a lovely wife, a caring mother, and an ambitious talent rising in the ranks of corporate America. As it turned out, she would one day be vice president of a Fortune 500 company, even when that career path was almost unheard of for a black woman without a degree. What people didn't see was Carolynn scrambling to take off her glasses before her husband hit her. They didn't see the harassment at work or the racist notes left in her mailbox. They didn't see her standing in the doorway of her children's room, watching them sleep and wondering if she could go on like this for even one more day. She lived a fast-paced life, often just trying to make it through. Then, after her mother died, Carolynn was sifting through her mother's belongings and found three birth certificates with three different names for the same baby-her. She embarked on a journey to discover the truth of her complicated family history, make peace with the past, and inspire others to persevere, like her, in the face of daunting obstacles. In You Will Know My Name, Carolynn takes readers by the hand and shows them what it means to PUSH-persevere until something happens-believing there is purpose in it all. She shares how time and again, with bold determination and ever-present faith, she's done what people said she couldn't do.

Learn the painful yet inspiring true story of Chanel Miller, known as Emily Doe, who aims to reclaim her identity and voice after a years-long trial against Brock Turner. In the wake of a high-profile sexual assault case, Chanel Miller chose to stand up to the man who raped her but soon learned that she would lose herself in the process. With media surrounding the case, Chanel chose to remain anonymous and instead became referred to as “the victim,” “Emily Doe,” and even, “Brock Turner’s victim,” as if she was somehow connected to the stranger who raped her. Additionally, Turner’s defense team intended to silence her while twisting her words until they were no longer her own. They criticized her for drinking, took advantage of her memory loss, and created a narrative that benefited a rapist. In this book, Chanel has reclaimed the power of her voice and continues to fight for the rights of sexual assault survivors among a court system that has consistently let them down.

The Author in this work recounts her life tales, practise and understanding of purpose, demonstrating positive response to process that births it. The narrations were down to earth, encounters were unimaginably inhuman, sordid, and undignifying but courage and patience had the better valour. She was cheated, dejected and humiliated. Stoutly, she kept a calm disposition. Her teachable spirit and deference to counsel leveraged on divine strength and victory for her. She was rewarded. Everything fell into shape. Life now has a meaning; desires, pictures and dreams of life are established. I recommend this great book from my daughter in faith to all who acknowledge there is hope in their future, and future in their hope. What you are going through will not see your end; you will see their end. As she, uncompromisingly made it through righteous principles, on same track, you will make it.

Blood Done Sign My Name

Know My Name [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Blood Done Sign My Name by Timothy B. Tyson Book Resume:

"Daddy and Roger and 'em shot 'em a nigger." Those words, whispered to ten-year-old Tim Tyson by one of his playmates in the late spring of 1970, heralded a firestorm that would forever transform the small tobacco market town of Oxford, North Carolina. On May 11, 1970, Henry Marrow, a 23-year-old black veteran, walked into a crossroads store owned by Robert Teel, a rough man with a criminal record and ties to the Ku Klux Klan, and came out running. Teel and two of his sons chased Marrow, beat him unmercifully, and killed him in public as he pleaded for his life. In the words of a local prosecutor: "They shot him like you or I would kill a snake." Like many small Southern towns, Oxford had barely been touched by the civil rights movement. But in the wake of the killing, young African Americans took to the streets, led by 22-year-old Ben Chavis, a future president of the NAACP. As mass protests crowded the town square, a cluster of returning Vietnam veterans organized what one termed "a military operation." While lawyers battled in the courthouse that summer in a drama that one termed "a Perry Mason kind of thing," the Ku Klux Klan raged in the shadows and black veterans torched the town's tobacco warehouses. With large sections of the town in flames, Tyson's father, the pastor of Oxford's all-white Methodist church, pressed his congregation to widen their vision of humanity and pushed the town to come to terms with its bloody racial history. In the end, however, the Tyson family was forced to move away. Years later, historian Tim Tyson returned to Oxford to ask Robert Teel why he and his sons had killed Henry Marrow. "That nigger committed suicide, coming in here wanting to four-letter-word my daughter-in-law," Teel explained. The black radicals who burned much of Oxford also told Tim their stories. "It was like we had a cash register up there at the pool hall, just ringing up how much money we done cost these white people," one of them explained. "We knew if we cost 'em enough goddamn money they was gonna start changing some things." In the tradition of To Kill a Mockingbird, Blood Done Sign My Name is a classic work of conscience, a defining portrait of a time and place that we will never forget. Tim Tyson's riveting narrative of that fiery summer and one family's struggle to build bridges in a time of destruction brings gritty blues truth, soaring gospel vision, and down-home humor to our complex history, where violence and faith, courage and evil, despair and hope all mingle to illuminate America's enduring chasm of race. From the Hardcover edition.

From the author of A Place at the Table and A Soft Place to Land, an “intense, complex, and wholly immersive” (Joshilyn Jackson, New York Times bestselling author) multigenerational novel that explores the complex relationship between two very different women and the secrets they bequeath to their daughters. Eve Whalen, privileged child of an old-money Atlanta family, meets Daniella Gold in the fall of 1962, on their first day at Belmont College. Paired as roommates, the two become fast friends. Daniella, raised in Georgetown by a Jewish father and a Methodist mother, has always felt caught between two worlds. But at Belmont, her bond with Eve allows her to finally experience a sense of belonging. That is, until the girls’ expanding awareness of the South’s systematic injustice forces them to question everything they thought they knew about the world and their places in it. Eve veers toward radicalism—a choice pragmatic Daniella cannot fathom. After a tragedy, Eve returns to Daniella for help in beginning anew, hoping to shed her past. But the past isn’t so easily buried, as Daniella and Eve discover when their daughters are endangered by secrets meant to stay hidden. Spanning more than thirty years of American history, from the twilight of Kennedy’s Camelot to the beginning of Bill Clinton’s presidency, We Are All Good People Here is “a captivating…meaningful, resonant story” (Emily Giffin, author of All We Ever Wanted) about two flawed but well-meaning women clinging to a lifelong friendship that is tested by the rushing waters of history and their own good intentions.

Reckoning

Know My Name [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Reckoning by Linda Hirshman Book Resume:

The first history--incisive, witty, fascinating--of the fight against sexual harassment, from the author of the New York Times bestseller Sisters in Law Linda Hirshman, acclaimed historian of social movements, delivers the sweeping story of the struggle leading up to #MeToo and beyond: from the first tales of workplace harassment percolating to the surface in the 1970s, to the Clinton/Lewinsky scandal--when liberal women largely forgave Clinton, giving men a free pass for two decades. Many liberals even resisted the movement to end rape on campus. And yet, legal, political, and cultural efforts, often spearheaded by women of color, were quietly paving the way for the takedown of abusers and harassers. Reckoning delivers the stirring tale of a movement catching fire as pioneering women in the media exposed the Harvey Weinsteins of the world, women flooded the political landscape, and the walls of male privilege finally began to crack. This is revelatory, essential social history.

My Name is Selma

Know My Name [Pdf/ePub] eBook

My Name is Selma by Selma van de Perre Book Resume:

An international bestseller, this powerful, heart-wrenching memoir by a ninety-eight-year-old Jewish Resistance fighter and Ravensbrück concentration camp survivor “shows us how to find hope in hopelessness and light in the darkness” (Edith Eger, author of The Choice and The Gift). Selma van de Perre was seventeen when World War II began. She lived with her parents, two older brothers, and a younger sister. Until then, being Jewish in the Netherlands had been of no consequence. But by 1941 it had become a matter of life or death. On several occasions, Selma avoided being rounded up by the Nazis. Then, in an act of defiance, she joined the Resistance movement, using the pseudonym Margareta van der Kuit. For two years “Marga” risked it all. Using a fake ID, and passing as non-Jewish, she traveled around the country delivering newsletters, sharing information, keeping up morale—doing, as she later explained, what “had to be done.” But in July 1944 her luck ran out. She was transported to Ravensbrück women’s concentration camp as a political prisoner. Unlike her parents and sister—who, she would later discover, died in other camps—she survived by using her alias, pretending to be someone else. It was only after the war ended that she was allowed to reclaim her identity and dared to say once again: My name is Selma. Full of hope and courage, this is her story in her own words. As Selma herself says, this book was written as a testimony to our fight against inhumanity, and her page-turning, eloquent story offers a valuable new witness account of Jewish experience within the resistance movement.
