In this revealing and beautifully written memoir, Mark Obama Ndesandjo recounts his complex relationship with his older half brother, President Barack Obama, including their first meeting in Kenya over 20 years ago. The book also offers the author's inspiring personal story about identity and multiculturalism. Rare family photos add to the book's personal nature, as does the intense recounting of domestic violence in the home of Barack Obama, Sr. and his third wife, Ruth Baker, Mark's Jewish-American mother. The book also attempts to set the record straight on several points of the president's best-selling memoir Dreams from My Father. In its connection to President Obama, Mark's story takes on an even greater significance because it becomes all the more directly a story of American identity and a window into the complex figure of the father they share, Barack Obama, Sr.; their roots in Kenya; their multicultural identities; and their relationships with America. 1.

Agnes Baker Pilgrim, known to most as Grandma Aggie, is in her 90s and is the oldest living member of the Takelma Tribe, one of the Confederated Tribes of Siletz. A descendant of both spiritual and political tribal leaders, Grandma Aggie travels tirelessly around the world to keep traditions alive, to help those in need, and to be a voice for the voiceless, helping everyone to remember to preserve our Earth for animals and each other in a spiritual environment. Considered an excellent speaker, she has mesmerized her audience wherever she appears, and now her wit, wisdom, memories, advice, stories, and spirituality have been captured for all to hear. Honored as a "Living Cultural Legend" by the Oregon Council of the Arts, Grandma Aggie here speaks about her childhood memories, about her tribe and her life as a child growing up in an area that often didn't allow Indians and dogs into many public places, as well as about such contemporary issues as bullying, teen suicide, drugs and alcohol, Pope Francis, President Obama, water conservation, climate change, and much more. This is an amazing recording of one of the oldest and most important voices of the First Nation and of the world. Her stories and advice will mesmerize and captivate you as well as provide a blueprint for how all the inhabitants of the Earth can live together in harmony, spirituality, and peace. 1.

In this hour, the style of type used by the Obama campaign is called Gotham and was designed by the team of Jonathan Hoefler and Tobias Frere-Jones. They tell Anne Strainchamps how they feel about having designed the font of Hope and Change and where the design originally came from. Next, novelist Nicholson Baker reviewed the Kindle, Amazon's electronic reading device, in The New Yorker in an article called "A New Page: Can the Kindle Really Improve the Book?" Baker tells Anne Strainchamps that e-readers have some advantages over the printed book, but the Kindle isn't his favorite.Then, Matthew Carter designed Verdana, the internet font, and co-founded Bitstream, the first digital foundry. He co-designed Helvetica - the most ubiquitous font family in the world. He even designed Bell Centennial, the phone book font. Carter tells Steve Paulson his career in fonts began very traditionally, at a printing factory.After that, Tracy Honn, director of the Silver Buckle Press in Madison, WI, takes TTBOOK's Charles Monroe-Kane and Caryl Owen on a tour of this working museum of letterpress printing, and its star, The Trolley: a Golding Official #6 from the late 1800s. And finally, Kitty Burns Florey is the author of Script and Scribble: The Rise and Fall of Handwriting. She says handwriting is the original font and talks with Jim Fleming about practicing Palmer method. [Broadcast Date: August 18, 2010] 1. Language: English.

Black Prophetic Fire

An unflinching look at nineteenth- and twentieth-century African American leaders and their visionary legacies. In an accessible, conversational format, Cornel West, with distinguished scholar Christa Buschendorf, provides a fresh perspective on six revolutionary African American leaders: Frederick Douglass, W. E. B. Du Bois, Martin Luther King Jr., Ella Baker, Malcolm X, and Ida B. Wells. In dialogue with Buschendorf, West examines the impact of these men and women on their own eras and across the decades. He not only rediscovers the integrity and commitment within these passionate advocates but also their fault lines. West, in these illuminating conversations with the German scholar and thinker Christa Buschendorf, describes Douglass as a complex man who is both "the towering Black freedom fighter of the nineteenth century" and a product of his time who lost sight of the fight for civil rights after the emancipation. He calls Du Bois "undeniably the most important Black intellectual of the twentieth century" and explores the more radical aspects of his thinking in order to understand his uncompromising critique of the United States, which has been omitted from the American collective memory. West argues that our selective memory has sanitized and even "Santaclausified" Martin Luther King Jr., rendering him less radical, and has marginalized Ella Baker, who embodies the grassroots organizing of the civil rights movement. The controversial Malcolm X, who is often seen as a proponent of reverse racism, hatred, and violence, has been demonized in a false opposition with King, while the appeal of his rhetoric and sincerity to students has been sidelined. Ida B. Wells, West argues, shares Malcolm X's radical spirit and fearless speech, but has "often become the victim of public amnesia." By providing new insights that humanize all of these well-known figures, in the engrossing dialogue with Buschendorf, and in his insightful introduction and powerful closing essay, Cornel West takes an important step in rekindling the Black prophetic fire so essential in the age of Obama.
