AUDIO BOOK READING chp 4 BREAKING THE CHAINS, WM.L.KATZ
Jenny Smith Fletcher was the daughter of W. H. Smith, founder of Nicodemus. She was the first postmistress and schoolteacher in Nicodemus, Kansas. She was also one of the original charter members of the A.M.E. Church.
Formerly enslaved African Americans left Kentucky in organized colonies to experience freedom in the "promised land" of Kansas. Nicodemus represents the involvement of African Americans in the westward expansion and settlement of the Great Plains. It is the oldest and only remaining Black settlement west of the Mississippi River.

AUDIO BOOK READING - BREAKING THE CHAINS, Week 4 Chapter 4 Resistance
Although slave revolts constituted the most dramatic form of slave resistance, they were by no means the only method of reprisal. Arson proved to be an exceptionally effective and consequently frequent form of retaliation. In 1795, slave-set fires in Charleston, South Carolina, prompted the governor to declare a day of fasting. More arson there in 1804 resulted in the destruction of six ships and hundreds of homes. The problem of arson was so widespread that, in 1820, the American Fire Insurance Company of Philadelphia stopped issuing policies in the South.
Assaults and attempts at assassination were also common. In 1740, accusations that slaves were attempting to poison New York City's water supply resulted in widespread arrests and executions. Poison attempts were so frequent they were even referred to in the lyrics of at least one slave song. Vandalism and destruction of crops were also regular occurrences.

"In the North tax money built libraries and public schools
in the South it built jails to hold slaves and paid the salaries of slave patrols.
New York state published more newspapers than the fourteen slave states combined."

“In his Breaking The Chains, which earned the Carter G. Woodson award, Katz chronicles how resistance by Africans marked the era of slavery. It shows how slaves battled for dignity and liberty in fields, cities, through education and religion, by joining maroon colonies, by staging revolts or fleeing on the Underground Railroad. Katz shows how slaves transformed the Civil War into a battle for freedom and brought about the Union victory. “This book will force many readers to reexamine their assumptions about American history… Young readers will be fascinated and better informed for having experienced this book,” wrote School Library Journal. Striking photographs highlight this unknown heritage.”

What would you do if you were imbued with superpowers?
This is the question posed to a group of high school students who are struck with the powers of telekinesis. This narrative interweaves the destiny of multiple teenagers and unravels the mystery of the object that granted them immortality. Clark, and his girlfriend, Sarah, naturally take to fighting crime when they form a group of superheroes. Other characters are more ambiguously motivated as they use their powers, not for the good of others, but solely to benefit themselves. They live comfortable lives until a mysterious stranger comes a’knocking. He knows their secret and will tell the world unless they pay up. And then there is the tragic fall of John, a young man with a heartbreaking back story whose lust for power and vengeance leads him on a downward spiral into madness.
“Ascension” is part one in an exciting and compelling new YA series that takes the superhero genre to new heights by asking how people truly respond to gaining unimaginable power. "Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely."
Dominick Domasky, author of Don’t Double Bread the Fish, discusses his work, and how he’s overcoming past failures and making a fulfilling life. The book is an anecdotal journey in which Dominic pulls from a long list of life experiences as a backdrop for their deeper message. We talk about the big questions like, what epiphanies might come to someone so badly covered in horse manure that the stuff had gotten between his teeth? We also discuss how his day job, selling business insurance, might relate to his motivational speaking and writing. Dominick lives in Pennsylvania with his wife and two children, where he is currently working on his second book. Don’t Double Bread the Fish is published by Motivational Press Inc. and can be purchased at any of the major online book retailers.
