1. Embrace Yoga's Roots: Courageous Ways to Deepen Your Yoga Practice
Author: by Susanna Barkataki
Published at: Ignite Yoga & Wellness Institute (October 27, 2020)
Do you want to be on the cutting edge of the future of yoga? If you desire an authentic yoga practice embracing ancient yogic philosophy and traditions but don’t know how to embody that knowledge with integrity in today’s modern yoga culture, Embrace Yoga’s Roots is your guide to honor and not appropriate yoga.”When we mistake yoga for a workout routine, reduce it to physical fitness or even do some of the deeper aspects of yoga without an eye to the whole system of liberation it offers, we rob ourselves and each other of the potential of this practice,” says Susanna Barkataki.
Embrace Yoga’s Roots explores the past’s yogic traditions, brings them alive today, and preserves them for the future by examining what separates us, reflecting on our part, taking action for equity and moving toward liberation together. If you practice, teach or want to learn yoga integrating your ethics and values while respecting ancient yoga philosophy, you have found the essential guide to making that goal a reality.”I can’t think of anyone more suited to lead the way to embrace yoga’s roots than Susanna.

Author: by Cyrus McQueen
Published at: Cyrus McQueen LLC (December 11, 2020)
A global pandemic and a national uprising over racial injustice evince a nation thrust into unceasing turmoil. With a country consumed by regressive forces, virtual platforms would telegraph the growing gulf between a divided citizenry. With a mercurial president using the Twitter megaphone to divide, progressive voices soon discovered that social media and social responsibility needed to be braided.
For one Black American, bearing witness to the dual contagion of COVID and racism, he soon discovered the sickness long plaguing America could at least be combatted one tweet at a time. Tweeting Truth to Power is his dynamic chronicle of living day to day through a defining era.
A Top 20 Finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, comedian Cyrus McQueen embodies the spirit of The Resistance, an emboldened community that takes to the Twitter platform to unite rather than to divide. McQueen shares the personal and political journey he began in 2016, when he put aside the microphone to get serious about inequality.

Jon does not live by the code dictated to African Americans in the South and is therefore repeatedly the target of racist attacks…
Until he starts fighting back. Despite constant assaults, Jon refuses to be intimidated by the school’s racist students who do not want “his kind” at their esteemed university. His journey to empowerment has begun. He rises to a position of leadership and respect among his peers and begins working to improve conditions for other Blacks on campus.
His “take-no-prisoners” efforts focus on eliminating the racial terrorism which is so prevalent at his university.

But an incident occurs that puts him and the other Blacks on campus in the crosshairs and threatens all they’ve worked to accomplish.

11. Black Rednecks and White Liberals
Author: by Thomas Sowell
Published at: Encounter Books (June 1, 2005)
This book presents the kind of eye-opening insights into the history and culture of race for which Sowell has become famous. As late as the 1940s and 1950s, he argues, poor Southern rednecks were regarded by Northern employers and law enforcement officials as lazy, lawless, and sexually immoral.
This pattern was repeated by blacks with whom they shared a subculture in the South. Over the last half century poor whites and most blacks have moved up in class and affluence, but the ghetto remains filled with black rednecks.
Their attempt to escape, Sowell shows, is hampered by their white liberal friends who turn dysfunctional black redneck culture into a sacrosanct symbol of racial identity. In addition to Black Rednecks and White Liberals, the book takes on subjects ranging from Are Jews Generic?
To The Real History of Slavery.

14. The Education of an Idealist (English and Old English Edition)
Author: by Samantha Power
Published at: William Collins (September 12, 2019)
Pulitzer-Prize winner Samantha Power is widely known as the moral voice of her generation. A relentless advocate for promoting human rights, she has been heralded by President Barack Obama as one of America’s foremost thinkers on foreign policy. The Education of an Idealist traces Power’s extraordinary journey, from Irish immigrant to human rights activist to United States Ambassador to the United Nations.
Power began her career as a war correspondent and as a vocal critic of US foreign policy, and then put her ideals into practice while working with Obama in the Senate, on the campaign trail, and throughout his presidency. Power’s perspective on government is unique, as she takes us from the streets of war-torn Bosnia to the Situation Room and out into the world of high-stakes diplomacy.
In her characteristically gripping prose, Power illuminates the messy and complex worlds of politics and geopolitics while laying bare the searing battles and defining moments of her life. She also reveals what it’s like to juggle the demands of a 24/7 national security job with raising two young children.
