P-IANLA-lg.jpg Poster: I Am No Longer Afraid
Photograph by Halla Hammid, words by Deena Metzger, poster design by Shiela Levrant de Bretteville. (Wingbow Press, 1989). 24"x17" The poster has text in the upper left part of it, which reads: "I am no longer afraid of mirrors where I see the sign of the Amazon, the one who shoots arrows. There was a fine line across my chest where a knife entered, but now a branch winds about the scar and travels from arm to heart. Green leaves cover the branch, grapes hang there and a bird appears. What grows in me now is vital and does not cause me harm. I think the bird is singing. I have relinquished some of the scars. I have designed my chest with care given to an illuminated manuscript. I am no longer ashamed to make love. Love is a battle I can win. I have a body of a warrior who does not kill or wound. On the book of my body, I have permanently inscribed a tree." Copyright 1988 by Deena Metzger

BK-SSWR.jpg Book: Sophie Scholl & The White Rose
Jud Newborn & Annette Dumbach 256 pages 2006 7 COPIES AVAILABLE This book is OUT-OF-PRINT.
"Nothing is so unworthy of a civilized nation as allowing itself to be governed, without opposition, by an irresponsible clique that has yielded to base instinct." So wrote the White Rose, a group of ardent young activists inside Nazi Germany who opposed the reign of fascism in their country during the early 1940's.
"The animated narrative reads like a suspense novel." N.Y. Times
"Inspiring - and could not be more timely." Studs Terkel
"Superbly written" Library Journal
"Heart-wrenching and inspiring...a story few readers will forget." San Francisco Chronicle
"Could change your life forever." Dayton (Ohio) Daily News
"A must for anyone especially young people to read." Evelyn Rubin, author of Ghetto Shanghai
"This is an impressive, highly readable and beautifully researched account of two brave German youths and their comrades who rejected Hitler's demonic vision and fought to open their countrymen's eyes to the horrors that lay ahead at the cost of their lives ...This book drives home the high cost of courage in a world gone mad, and the brilliant light these brave young people shone into the dark night of Nazi Germany." Susan Rubinowitz, political reporter, New York

P-SSWWDH.jpg Poster: Sophie Scholl The True Story of The Woman Who Defied Hitler
$10.00 $8.00 On Sale!
11" x 17" High Gloss poster stock
Photograph of German college student anti-Nazi activist and member of the White Rose, a secret student group at the University of Munich in Germany during the Nazi regime. The group mimeographed a series of six leaflets against the Nazis, which the Third Reich considered an act of treason against the German state. The students were arrested, interrogated, and within five days brought before a "kangaroo court" ("The People's Court"), charged, prosecuted, sentenced and taken from the courtroom directly to the guillotine to be beheaded. The Nazi's needed to make an example of the White Rioe students. The German government feared that there may have been other Germans clandestinely opposed to the Nazi dictatorship. Under a fascist dictatorship, people are executed by the state for merely leafletting. Sophie Scholl (1923-1944) and the White Rise students' courage in the face of such a regime stands out still today as an example to be honored, remembered and emulated if and when totalitarianism takes over another country.

WR.jpg Button: White Rose symbol
1" button design commemorates the White Rose group of five anti-Nazi German students at the Universiy of Munich, (1942-43) who wrote, mimeographed and clandestinely distributed a series of six leaflet urging their fellow Germans to oppose Hitler and Nazism. It was considered treasonous to say, print or distribute anything critical of the government, punishable by imprisonment or death. They were caught, turned over to the Gestapo and five days later beheaded as enemies of the state. Today they are recognized among the courageous heroes of the German resistance to Hitler and Nazism.

bk-i love myself.gif Book: I Love Myself When I Am Laughing and Then Again When I Am Looking Mean and Impressive: A Zora Neale Hurston Reader.
BK-ILM Edited by Alice Walker. I love the title of this book almost as much as the book. It sums up the work of Zora Neale Hurston quite well. In her introduction Alice Walker says, We love Zora Neale Hurston for her work, first, and then again we love her for herself. For the humor and courage with which she encountered a life she infrequently designed; for her absolute disinterest in becoming either white or bourgeois, and for her devoted appreciation of her own culture, which is an inspiration to us all. Softcover, 313 pages.
