Product Description

This groundbreaking play starred Sidney Poitier, Claudia McNeill, Ruby Dee and Diana Sands in the Broadway production which opened in 1959. Set on Chicago's South Side, the plot revolves around the divergent dreams and conflicts within three generations of the Younger family: son Walter Lee, his wife Ruth, his sister Beneatha, his son Travis and matriarch Lena, called Mama. When her deceased husband's insurance money comes through, Mama dreams of moving to a new home and a better neighborhood in Chicago. Walter Lee, a chauffeur, has other plans, however: buying a liquor store and being his own man. Beneatha dreams of medical school.

The tensions and prejudice they face form this seminal American drama. Sacrifice, trust and love among the Younger family and their heroic struggle to retain dignity in a harsh and changing world is a searing and timeless document of hope and inspiration. Winner of the NY Drama Critic's Award as Best Play of the Year, it has been hailed as a "pivotal play in the history of the American Black theatre." by Newsweek and"a milestone in the American Theatre." by Ebony.

Hacktivism and Cyberwars: Rebels with a Motivate? by Buy.com (dba Rakuten.com Shopping)

As broad society becomes more and more dependent, politically and economically, on the flow of information, the power of those who can disrupt and manipulate that flow also increases. In Hacktivism and Cyberwars Tim Jordan and Paul Taylor offer a detailed history of hacktivisms evolution from early hacking culture to its present day status as the radical face of online statecraft. They describe the ways in which hacktivism has re-appropriated hacking techniques to create an innovative new form of political protest. A full simplification is given of the different strands of hacktivism and the cyberwars it has created, ranging from such avant garde groups as the Electronic Disturbance Theatre to more virtually focused groups labelled The Digitally Put right. The full social and historical context of hacktivism is portrayed to take into account its position in terms of new social movements, direct action and its contribution to the globalization dispute. This book provides an important corrective flip-side to mainstream accounts of E-commerce and broadens the conceptualization of the internet to memo into full account the other side of the digital divide. *Author: Jordan, Tim/ Taylor, Paul/ Taylor, Paul A. *Binding Kidney: Hardcover *Number of Pages: 192 *Publication Date: 2004/08/06 *Language: English *Dimensions: 8.14 x 5.02 x 0.75 inches

Picton's memories of the clubs and theatres everyday in New York City between roughly 1835-50 form the basis of these highly entertaining and historically informative reflections. Complete with illustrations, notes, and complete index. Professor Emeritus William L. Slout is the premier circus historian of his time, having edited or written several dozen books on theatre and circus existence, in addition to such noteworthy plays as The Trial of Dr. Jekyll.

Hands
Hands
I tried to frame their whole bodies but I was too slow and clumsy so this is what I got (after a bit of cropping). I think it's a happy accident. This brings to mind three things: 1. "One day...little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers. I have a dream today." (M.L. King, and don't think I'm not aware of the banality of quoting something so significant in this context; I'm just reporting my thoughts here.) 2. "Hand in hand. No don't ask me to apologize, I won't ask you to forgive me. If I'm gonna go down, you're gonna come with me." (Elvis Costello) 3. This article by Stephanie Rosenbloom called "A Show of Hands" from the NYT of 10/5/06, which you can no longer read online without subscribing: ON a brisk autumn afternoon, in the shadow of the marble arch in Washington Square Park, a couple visiting from Ohio walked along holding hands like two teenagers going...

Native Sons Building (And Daughters, Too)
What was the City of San Francisco thinking when they allowed that awful marquee to be pasted onto the front of this elegant and historic building? The program that was published when this building was dedicated in 1912 included the following: History of the NSGW Building by Lewis F. Byington, Past Grand President The new Native Sons’ Building, just completed and situated on the east side of Mason Street, between Geary and Post Streets, is unquestionably the best appointed and arranged fraternal building in California, and for the lodge and social purposes the most centrally located of any in San Francisco. It stands on the same block as the St. Francis Hotel and within a radius of two blocks are Union Square at the heart of the city, the Hotel Bellevue, the Stewart Hotel, the Olympic Club, the Bohemian Club, the Union League Club, and the Elks’ Club, the Columbia, Alcazar and Orpheum Theatres, and most of the leading hotels, clubs, restaurants, and places of amusement in San...
