"In this pathbreaking collection of articles, Dr. Beverly Guy-Sheftall has taken us from the early 1830s to contemporary times. Only since the seventies have black women used the term "feminism." And yet, it is that concept that she uses to bring into the same frame the ideas and analyses of Maria Stewart, Sojourner Truth, and Frances W.E. Harper of the early nineteenth century, and the work of women such as the late Audre Lorde, Barbara Smith, and bell hooks who stand on the threshold of the twenty-first century... She has refused to cut off contemporary African American women from the long line of sisters who have righteously struggled for the liberation of African American women from the dual oppressions of racism and sexism." —From the epilogue by Johnnetta B. Cole, President, Spelman College "The indefatigable Beverly Guy-Sheftall has put together a breathtaking sweep of African American feminist thought in one indispensable volume." —Elizabeth Spelman, Professor of Philosophy, Smith College

As educators, how do we challenge and interrupt the social construction of whiteness in ourselves, in the classroom, in schools, and in the wider society? Coming from diverse backgrounds, the contributors in this volume draw on their own well-examined experiences of race, racism, and whiteness in developing effective antiracist pedagogies and classroom activities that interrupt and contest whiteness. They have explored their own lives from the selective position of their own memories and have traced the ways in which their assumptions - which they use to mediate and interpret the world around them - have been constituted by public ideological forces. They have collaborated with others in building alternative pedagogies and support systems, enabling them to teach, and at the same time, reflect on the assumptions behind and the effects of their teaching. The result is the work collected here.

Seit dem 19. Jahrhundert finden Afroamerikaner im Islam eine attraktive Alternative zum Christentum. Prominente Konvertiten wie Malcolm X und Muhammad Ali sind Ikonen eines Islam, der auf Selbstdisziplinierung und Aufstiegswillen setzt. Anhand ethnographischer Quellen und deren Einordnung in sozialwissenschaftliche Diskurse zu US-Geschichte und Gesellschaft zeigt Katrin Simon auf eindrückliche Weise, dass der »Black Islam« ein eigenständiges Phänomen ist, der sich vom Islam der Einwanderer unterscheidet. So entsteht ein einmaliger Blick in ein Amerika, in dem Ghetto-Imame und verschleierte Feministinnen gegen Rassismus auch in den eigenen Reihen kämpfen.

Ein Kalb wird bei lebendigem Leib verbrannt, und sechs brennende Schwäne fliegen über den Marebo-See. Frauen verschwinden, eine Amerikanerin wird in der Kirche erdrosselt, und ein Lastwagen voller Dynamit lässt den Dom von Lund in Flammen aufgehen. In seinem neuen Kriminalroman spannt Henning Mankell den Bogen von dem furchtbaren Massaker in Jonestown, Guyana 1978, wo ein religiöser Fanatiker seinen Anhängern befahl, Selbstmord zu begehen, bis zum 11. September 2001. Mankell ist ein atemberaubender Roman gelungen: diesmal mit Linda Wallander in der Hauptrolle.

Im Jahr, als Sri Lanka unabhängig wird, kommt der elfjährige Triton als Boy in das Haus von Mister Salgado, einem Meeresbiologen, der nur einen Lebensinhalt hat: das gefährdete Universum des Ozeans. Für den Jungen wird das Haus des Junggesellen zu einem abgeschlossenen Mikrokosmos. Er lernt, das Silber so zu polieren, dass es schimmert wie geschmolzenes Sonnenlicht, den Liebeskuchen mit zehn Eiern zu backen und für die Freundin seines Herrn den Papageienfisch zu dünsten. Und er lernt, mit wachen Augen die politischen, sozialen und amourösen Ränkespiele zu beobachten. Hintergründig erzählt Triton seine Geschichte. Naiv und wissend zugleich, tapfer und ängstlich - die eindrückliche Stimme eines Jungen, der in einer zerbrechenden Welt erwachsen geworden ist.
