Jambalaya

Jambalaya

A refreshed edition of Jambalaya: The Natural Woman’s Book of Personal Charms and Practical Rituals—updated with a note from the author sharing the changes that have occurred in the 30 years since its original publication. "A book of startling remembrances, revelations, directives, and imperatives, filled with the mysticism, wisdom, and common sense of the African religion of the Mother. It should be read with the same open-minded love with which it was written."—Alice Walker, author of The Color Purple Since its original publication in 1985, Jambalaya has become a classic among Women’s Spirituality Educators, practitioners of traditional Africana religions, environmental activists, and cultural creatives. A mix of memoir, spiritual teachings, and practices from Afro-American traditions such as Ifa/Orisha, and New Orleans Voudou, it offers a fascinating introduction to the world of nature-based spirituality, Goddess worship, and rituals from the African diaspora. More relevant today than it was 36 years ago, the wisdom of Jambalaya reconnects us to the natural and spiritual world, and the centuries-old traditions of African ancestors, whose voices echo through time, guiding us and blending with our own.

Boys In The Trees

Boys In The Trees

Carly Simon's New York Times bestselling memoir, Boys in the Trees, reveals her remarkable life, beginning with her storied childhood as the third daughter of Richard L. Simon, the co-founder of publishing giant Simon & Schuster, her musical debut as half of The Simon Sisters performing folk songs with her sister Lucy in Greenwich Village, to a meteoric solo career that would result in 13 top 40 hits, including the #1 song "You're So Vain." She was the first artist in history to win a Grammy Award, an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award, for her song "Let the River Run" from the movie Working Girl. The memoir recalls a childhood enriched by music and culture, but also one shrouded in secrets that would eventually tear her family apart. Simon brilliantly captures moments of creative inspiration, the sparks of songs, and the stories behind writing "Anticipation" and "We Have No Secrets" among many others. Romantic entanglements with some of the most famous men of the day fueled her confessional lyrics, as well as the unraveling of her storybook marriage to James Taylor.

The Lemonade Reader

The Lemonade Reader

The Lemonade Reader is an interdisciplinary collection that explores the nuances of Beyoncé’s 2016 visual album, Lemonade. The essays and editorials present fresh, cutting-edge scholarship fueled by contemporary thoughts on film, material culture, religion, and black feminism. Envisioned as an educational tool to support and guide discussions of the visual album at postgraduate and undergraduate levels, The Lemonade Reader critiques Lemonade’s multiple Afrodiasporic influences, visual aesthetics, narrative arc of grief and healing, and ethnomusicological reach. The essays, written by both scholars and popular bloggers, reflects a broad yet uniquely specific black feminist investigation into constructions of race, gender, spirituality, and southern identity. The Lemonade Reader gathers a newer generation of black feminist scholars to engage in intellectual discourse and confront the emotional labor around the Lemonade phenomena. It is the premiere source for examining Lemonade, a text that will continue to have a lasting impact on black women’s studies and popular culture.

Spiritual Man

Spiritual Man

Spiritual Man: Natural Woman is an empowerment and relationship-building Bible study written to reveal and remind young, middle-aged, and mature women of faith that we do not have to ask for liberation or equality because we already possess it. The key to experiencing the joy of womanhood lies in our individual and collective abilities to learn what acceptable and unacceptable relationships with each other and the men in our lives look like from the women of the Bible. Spiritual Man: Natural Woman brings attention to the fact that as women, we have the same responsibility as men to learn to worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth. Spiritual Man: Natural Woman also holds us accountable for learning and evolving into the specially designed help meet (daughter, sister, aunt, niece, cousin, mother, wife, and friend) our sons, brothers, uncles, nephews, cousins, fathers, husbands, and friends can share with, learn from, and be willing to protect, support, and grow with. As women of faith, we must be mindful of how we respect one another as we move forward in our efforts to be respected by men. Spiritual Man: Natural Woman is not an exhaustive listing of all the Scriptures that pertain to womanhood. Instead, Spiritual Man: Natural Woman was written to elaborate on how important we are to the Most High. Spiritual Man: Natural Woman was written to prove we are not an "after the fact" creation. Spiritual Man: Natural Woman was written to remind us that we were given authority over land, sea, and air, just like man, and that we have a responsibility to work harmoniously with one another and with man. Spiritual Man: Natural Woman was written to remind us that we will be held accountable for the way we have chosen to live our lives, for we too shall stand before the Judgment seat, and I am one woman who definitely wants to hear Him say, "Well done, my good and faithful servant!"
