“331 Innings is a powerful tale narrated by elderly, Nebraska native Jack Schram, a lifelong witness to the folly of war and hypocrisy. Jack tells of the bullying encountered by his nephew\'s teenage son, John, born with physical disabilities. It hasn\'t been any easier for John\'s close friend, Sarah Jenkinson, harassed at school since moving to the area a few years ago...
Peter Brav is not much of a baseball player but he\'s written three novels where the diamond provides a setting for triumph over adversity in one way or another. Sneaking In (set during the 1999 Yankees championship season), The Other Side Of Losing (set during a Chicago Cubs championship season) and now 331 Innings (set in a small Nebraska town). Add in Zappy I\'m Not, a memoir of a cranky middle-aged man reincarnated as a small dog, and you have a literary celebration of all manner of admirable underdogs.

“The first African-American political leaders began to serve following the Civil War...Known as Reconstruction, this period represented a window of opportunity for African-Americans...

Understanding God Takes Tolerance: Enter Shari Sharifi Brown’s When Shari Sharifi Brown enters a room one immediately senses a unique presence, an intuitive sense that the joy within her is the infallible sign of the presence of God. Why 7 Commandments when we all have been taught there were 10 Commandments. Because […]
“Pretty powerful is the understanding that, as women, we have the duality of both 'pretty' and 'substance' that can (and should) be maximized to achieve any success we set our minds to... While there are significant challenges along the way... we have incredible choice around how we utilize our appearance, coupled with our substance...
“For the past three decades, we've earnestly tried to address white-body supremacy in America with reason, principle and ideas--using dialogue, forums, discussions, education and mental training. But the widespread destruction of Black bodies continues.
“For so much of American history, the fact of black people is a problem... The demonstrable truth has been evaded in favor of a more comforting story...
“It has always been a struggle for the relatively few African-Americans in corporate America who do exist, and it is made all the more difficult because we tend to operate in isolation.
