As an American I have experienced the changes in this country that frankly have citizens of all ages disenfranchised about the direction this country is taking politically. The slow agonizing erosion of morals, values and Christian religious freedom should be a priority and a form of disaster control for all Americans. But to do so first the people need to completely understand the years of conservative silence that attributed to this spiritual decay. Years after I served my country with the Army Corp of Engineers, I found myself compelled to write a book pointing out to the reader where and why America went wrong which started most of the deep rooted problems. America should face the Dragon of Liberalism and truly understand what actually politically transpired in the 1960s. These ideas used in this book are spoken from a war veterans point of view as it pertains to the political hoax portrayed on the people that has not been faced, once understood it will light a new way of the future.
In December 1953, a little more than a year after he was paroled from prison, Malcolm was named the minister at the NOI's Boston mosque, Temple No. 11. The following year he also became the minister at Temple No. 12 (Philadelphia) and Temple No. 7 (New York).
Muhammad Speaks, the NOI newspaper, was founded by Malcolm in 1957.
Beginning in the 1960s, Malcolm was invited to participate in numerous debates, including forums on radio stations (Los Angeles, New York, Washington), television programs ("Open Mind," "The Mike Wallace News Program") and universities (Harvard Law School, Howard University, Columbia University).

In March 1964, after his split with the NOI, Malcolm forms the Muslim Mosque, Inc. Several months later, he also organizes the Organizations of Afro-American Unity (OAAU).
Malcolm's autobiography, which he worked on for two years with writer Alex Haley, was published in November 1965.
Slaves in the Family with Edward Ball
If you knew that you were a descendant of a slave- owner, would you tell anyone?
If you had an opportunity to apologize to descendants of those enslaved by your family, would you?
Edward Ball is a writer of narrative nonfiction and the author of five books, including The Inventor and the Tycoon (Doubleday, 2013), about the birth of moving pictures. The book tells the story of Edward Muybridge, the pioneering 19-century photographer (and admitted murderer), and Leland Stanford, the Western railroad baron, whose partnership, in California during the 1870s, gave rise to the visual media.
Edward Ball’s first book, Slaves in the Family (1998), told the story of his family’s history as slave-owners in South Carolina, and of the families they once enslaved. Slaves in the Family won the National Book Award for nonfiction, was a New York Times bestseller, was translated into five languages, and was featured on Oprah.
Edward Ball was born in Savannah, raised in Louisiana and South Carolina, and graduated from Brown University in 1982. He worked for ten years as freelance journalist in New York, writing about art and film, and becoming a columnist for The Village Voice.
His other books, all nonfiction, include The Sweet Hell Inside (2001), the story of an African-American family that rose from the ashes of the Civil War to build lives in music and in art during the Jazz Age; Peninsula of Lies (2004), the story of English writer Gordon Hall, who underwent one of the first sex reassignments—in the South during the 1960s—creating an outrage; and The Genetic Strand, about the process of using DNA to investigate family history.
Edward Ball lives in Connecticut and teaches at Yale University.
What is Ascension and is it taking place now? Are we about to embark on a new world? Yes, says Kristen Ann, author of Exploring Sacred Space: A Vast Quest. She reveals the cycles earth has gone through every 25,920 years as well as what ancient civilizations prophesized for our future. How are extraterrestrials involved in our reality? During the 1970s she investigated the baffling ET case of Dan Fry in Tonapah, Arizona. Dan was given extraordinary facts about our history and earth's future.
Kristen has spent a lifetime studying spirituality and metaphysics. Her life has been one of unusual experiences, encounters and constant "coincidences" and synchronicities. A near-death experience as a child later sent her on a quest to learn spiritual truths in the 1960s. She learned TM (Transcendental Meditation) from TM instructors in 1970 at age 15. In the mid '70s she studied Anthroposophy, which is the science and findings of Rudolf Steiner from 1974-76.
