  • #Photocredit @bn_alpharetta When Darnell Moore was fourteen, three boys from his neighborhood tried to set him on fire. They cornered him while he was walking home from school, harassed him because they thought he was gay, and poured a jug of gasoline on him. He escaped, but just barely. It wasn't the last time he would face death. Three decades later, Moore is an award-winning writer, a leading Black Lives Matter activist, and an advocate for justice and liberation. In No Ashes in the Fire, he shares the journey taken by that scared, bullied teenager who not only survived, but found his calling. Moore's transcendence over the myriad forces of repression that faced him is a testament to the grace and care of the people who loved him, and to his hometown, Camden, NJ, scarred and ignored but brimming with life. Moore reminds us that liberation is possible if we commit ourselves to fighting for it, and if we dream and create futures where those who survive on society's edges can thrive. No Ashes in the Fire is a story of beauty and hope-and an honest reckoning with family, with place, and with what it means to be free.

  • **A REVOLUTIONARY BOOK** Stokely Speaks: From Black Power to Pan-Africanism and foreword by: Mumia Abu-Jamal ( #MumiaAbuJamal) #FreeMumia ✊🏿 In the speeches and articles collected in this #book, the #blackactivist, organizer, and freedom fighter Stokely Carmichael traces the dramatic changes in his own consciousness and that of black Americans that took place during the evolving movements of Civil Rights, #BlackPower, and #PanAfricanism. Unique in his belief that the destiny of African Americans could not be separated from that of oppressed people the world over, Carmichael's Black Power principles insisted that blacks resist white brainwashing and redefine themselves. He was concerned not only with racism and exploitation, but with cultural integrity and the colonization of #Afrikans in America. In these essays on #racism, Black Power, the pitfalls of conventional liberalism, and #solidarity with the oppressed masses and freedom fighters of all races and creeds, Carmichael addresses questions that still confront the black world and points to a need for an ideology of black and African #liberation, unification, and transformation. ⚫ We have free shipping for purchases over $100 and other bundle deals and will also put in an extra book or two for FREE !!!!!! #DTR360Books 📚💯💪🏿🖤🌌 -------------------------------------------------------------------- ➡ CHECK OUT MY WEBSITE FOR MOOR BOOKS AND HATS www.DTR360BOOKS.com LINK IS IN THEIR BIO ⬅ -- #BlackBusinesses #BlackIsBeautiful #Melanin #HueyPNewton #BobbySeale #FredHampton #AssataShakur #SupportBlackBusiness #BuyBlack #KwameTure #StokelyCarMichael #AfeniShakur #MalcolmX #BlackBooks #BlackAuthors

  • #LinkInBio To get on the other side of certain circumstances, situations, and seasons tears will be required. The soil that your seed is buried in will require your tears to water it. To get free from what has you in turmoil and chaos, will require tears. For that dream to come to life it’s going to require tears. That breakthrough you need from God will require tears. This Sinful Woman had no words for Jesus all she had were her tears. What needs to be released through your tears? You have been fighting them because you have been told they reveal weakness. You hold back your tears because if you let them fall it means you are giving the victory to what you are up against. After she released her pain and sins through her tears she made room to accept the love and forgiveness Jesus spoke into her. She came to Jesus with a heavy heart and a tarnished reputation but left with forgiveness.

  • #rp It started with one paragraph... before there a one full page. When I'd gotten to 15 pages I was in awe of my accomplishment. Now I have 2 whole books, which still stuns me when I say it out loud. Still, I grapple with fear. What if my words or intentions are misunderstood. What if it's there's too much sex involved. What if no one can relate to the characters. What if... my work isn't good enough. What if I'm not good enough. I write anyway. I dream anyway. I push anyway. Past the fear, over the insecurities, beyond the scope of self doubt. I give voice to my authentic self... anyway. It's the only way to LIVE. #Authentic #GoodIntentions #BlindAmbition #Motivation #author #blackauthors #shewrites #shecreates

  • My birthday is Friday. For most of my life I've always felt misunderstood. I've always had the big heart, this big vision. My big heart has gotten me into some pretty fckd up situations, and still I've learned to maintain that genuine part of me. I'm guilty of sometimes focusing more energy on those who are against me, than those who are truly with and for me - in deed + thought. Please forgive me 🙏🏾. These words from one of my artists are most powerful and defining, as I take on this next year of life. All I can say is, stay focused on YOUR vision. People really do tell me that I shouldn't do this!! Frfr!! Like I'm not cut out for this or something. [shrugs] Here's more proof. You're wrong. Mad wrong. I love you anyway with your old non-believing self 🤣 #ThankYou 🙌🏾

A one night stand leads to an unexpected pregnancy and turns into a heated affair. Though the guilt threatens to tear her apart, she can’t stop the affair and she can’t risk telling her fiancé because it would only break his heart, so the secrets began, but what happens when the wrong person learn of these secrets and use them as a perfect anecdote to destroy Chenile?
