Twentieth-century America has witnessed the most widespread and sustained movement of African-Americans from the South to urban centers in the North. Who Set You Flowin'? examines the impact of this dislocation and urbanization, identifying the resulting Migration Narratives as a major genre in African-American cultural production. Griffin takes an interdisciplinary approach with readings of several literary texts, migrant correspondence, painting, photography, rap music, blues, and rhythm and blues. From these various sources Griffin isolates the tropes of Ancestor, Stranger, and Safe Space, which, though common to all Migration Narratives, vary in their portrayal. She argues that the emergence of a dominant portrayal of these tropes is the product of the historical and political moment, often challenged by alternative portrayals in other texts or artistic forms, as well as intra-textually. Richard Wright's bleak, yet cosmopolitan portraits were countered by Dorothy West's longing for Black Southern communities. Ralph Ellison, while continuing Wright's vision, reexamined the significance of Black Southern culture. Griffin concludes with Toni Morrison embracing the South "as a site of African-American history and culture," "a place to be redeemed."

Marvin Peterson, known as Peabody to his friends and foes, lives in one of the most dangerous housing projects the government ever constructed. Although living in Pruitt-Igoe was painstakingly deadly for young men, his game of basketball was considered even more lethal. Considered as one of the city's best in 1966 and one of the most popular guys at Visitation High- known as the "Big V'," Peabody sets his sites on winning the elusive city championship and earning a scholarship to Dubois University.What is even more challenging is maintaining a relationship with his sweetheart, Thelma Holt, which is threatened by his popularity and ability to survive the mean streets of Pruitt-Igoe that are mined with violent stumbling blocks and beguiling pitfalls. Being caught by the enemy on the wrong side of the projects is one thing, but when you're six-five and wearing a school letterman's jacket with "All-City Basketball" across the back, the target gets even bigger.It is said, Hell is never full because man's eyes are never satisfied. Can Peabody withstand the pressures of popularity and remain loyal to his true love? Can he survive the violent social scene of the projects without getting buried by the Turbans, the Jolly Stompers, or the guys from the low-end? When it comes to relationships, is he the hunter or the hunted? Escaping the dangers of Pruitt-Igoe and getting to Dubois University unscathed may be too tall an order for this young man because all of the predators in his community are true man eaters!

Within ten years, nine out of ten people will claim “no religious affiliation.” Many of these people will live in urban areas. Church leaders must learn how to effectively engage in ministry with this urban core, a group that includes both the poor and marginalized as well as the wealthy and influential. This book will guide you in developing a philosophy of ministry that can lead to restoration and renewal in your city. Matt Carter and Darrin Patrick explain the biblical, theological, and historical foundations of ministry within the urban core, and how to plant churches where the gospel is not only faithfully preached and shared but also brings substantial benefits to those living in the community. For the City relates the wisdom gleaned from years of serving their cities for the sake of God’s kingdom. Carter and Patrick practically equip church leaders and Christians to look at their city as a mission field where individuals and churches can faithfully proclaim the gospel and live out the reality of a community changed and transformed by its message.

I held my breath, and I heard it too: the gentle sound of a door opening slowly and the crunch of something under a shoe. We froze, and my heart pounded. Prolific political author, Maggie Allder, returns with her latest novel Living with the Leopard. Following on from Courting Rendition (Matador, 2015), Maggie combines political awareness, adventure and a profound but non-dogmatic spirituality as we follow the story of a newly married couple. Life looks promising for Carrie and Tom even though they belong to a religious organisation deemed ‘extremist’ by the right-wing government of their day. They belong in a stable community and are, to some extent, sheltered from the poverty and discrimination which surrounds them. However, all that changes when the couple are invited to take part in activities to help the hungry-activities considered subversive by those in authority. Soon, they find themselves out of their depth, subject to a raid from the dreaded ATTF (Anti-Terrorist Task Force). They find themselves involved in the ‘overground’, the escape route organised to help dissidents to get away and go on to shelter a wanted person in their own home. The situation worsens when Carrie becomes ill and is threatened with total benefit cuts because her behaviour is considered feckless, and the couple can no longer tell whom within their community they can trust. Their faith is challenged and their marriage is threatened by the stress. Eventually, escape seems to be the only option, but they need to get away and take a gamble on who they can trust...

Straight Edge has persisted as a drug-free, hardcore punk subculture for 25 years. Its political legacy remains ambiguous and is often misrepresented as a Puritan conservatism. However, as this study shows, its history is more complex. Since its origins in 1980s, the scene has been linked to radical thought and music. Tracing this history, the book includes contributions from famed Straight-Edge rockers like Ian MacKaye (Fugazi), Mark Anderson (Dance of Days) and Andy Hurley (Fall Out Boy) and numerous other activists dedicated to a sober, liberated world.
