The purpose of this new book by Joseph E. Holloway is to provide a comprehensive examination of slave resistances, including enslaved African resistance on board slave ships, and in the United States. This new book makes an important and valuable educational contribution to our understanding of how slave actions contributed to changes in the laws governing African Americans. This book makes available new information for teachers, scholars and the general public on the role that enslaved Africans played in the making of America through their struggles and sacrifices for freedom. Enslaved Africans resisted throughout the transatlantic slave trade; they resisted slavery from its inception in the New World, particularly the United States in the early 1600s to the end of the middle 1800s.

Paul Von Blum's Creative Souls: African American Artists in Greater Los Angeles extends the opportunity for scholarship on African American art in greater Los Angeles. This volume focuses on 21 contemporary Los Angeles-area visual artists who have made the region a premier center for African American art. Following the format of my earlier volume, each artist has an entire chapter devoted to his or her life and work. The chapters consist of approximately 3000-4000 words and have 6 representative artistic illustrations covering the major themes and styles of each artist's career. Each chapter combines biographical content and artist analysis, focusing on the larger tradition of African American visual art from the early 20th century to the present.

These artists work in every medium: painting, murals, sculpture, assemblage, installations, photography, video, mask making, and several related forms. Together, their efforts have made powerful and enduring contributions to the cultural life of Southern California and to the nation as a whole. This volume documents their work and adds to the growing literature on African American art history and criticism.

Special two books for the price of one offer: when you order Creative Souls by Paul Von Blum, you will receive his latest book, A Life at the Margins: Keeping the Political Vision for as long as they last absolutely free.
