Title A MIND TO STAY : WHITE PLANTATION, BLACK HOMELAND

Title A MIND TO STAY :
Author Nathans, Sydney, author.
Publication Date(s) 2017
Format: Books
Summary A Mind to Stay is a unique and extraordinary historical narrative of generations of a Black family with roots in slavery and in the South. This family won their freedom with emancipation but, instead of fleeing the poverty and oppression of the White plantation, decided to stay on the homeland of their White masters and then to purchase it for themselves within a decade. In a true counterpoint to the predominant tale of the Black exodus north in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, these African Americans chose to hold onto the land that they had rightfully inherited and to risk all to keep it in the ensuing decades. Sydney Nathans, in his deep research into family and plantation papers and archives, as well as in invaluable oral interviews, has uncovered a slice of history that would otherwise have remained unknown. It is the story of a White plantation, Cameron Place, its owners who kept their slaves in family units, and who then sold their plantation to the same families in the 1870s. Thoseland-owning Blacks chose to remain on their land in the South through the tumultuous years of Reconstruction and Jim Crow and to claim all the rights due to a landowner up to the present. It is an unusual and original story told with great sensitivity and poignancy by Nathans who has the perseverance of a detective in seeking out the hidden tale and the skills and empathy of the historian in relating it.-- Provided by publisher

Author Ballantyne, Craig, author.
Publication Date(s) 2017
Format: Books
Summary "For decades we've been told that cardio exercise is a silver bullet against weight gain and obesity and a panacea against heart disease. We've been told that the hours spent jogging, cycling, and in aerobics classes will repay us with years of healthy (and fit!) longevity. We believed it. Today, we are heavier and more out of shape than ever--and likely suffering from overuse injuries incurred from years of prolonged cardio exercise. New research is showing that long cardio and endurance workouts do not get us much slimmer or stronger. Nor are they necessarily the best way to promote longevity or protect against heart disease. In fact, they may do the opposite by putting excessive strain on our heart, joints, and muscles and slowing our metabolism. The Great Cardio Myth will show you how to get the same or better fitness results in one-fifth of the time of a typical cardio session--with workouts you'll actually enjoy"--Page 4 of cover.

Now, years after leaving to make her way on her own terms, Abby is coming home to see her ailing grandmother, with her teenage daughter and a wealth of memories in tow. Yet as family members gather at the old farmhouse, Abby realizes this visit offers more than a chance to say goodbye...After decades of feeling she was a disappointment as a daughter, Abby is beginning to see that her mother, too, has struggled to feel a sense of belonging within the Brodie family. Celeste, Abby's self-centered sister, is far from the successful actress she pretends to be, and needs help that only Abby and their half-brother, Joseph, can give. But most surprising of all is the secret that Grandmother Brodie has been carrying--one that will make each woman question her identity and the sacrifices she's willing to make to gain acceptance.
