Beautiful in Black: Conversation with Suicide Narrative/Nonfiction It is finally completed and it is now released. Coming from the heart, an innocent story of honoring life in face of adversity. Growing up in Israel, challenging life hardships, coming to American to fulfill The desire to be accepted loved and free. Author Sara Shai says: True, I have been writing this on and off for the last 35 years. Many times I was not sure I wanted to have my life as an open book, but the thought that my story could make a difference in somebodys life made it possible for me to persevere.The also book focuses on the taboo issue of suicide and the effect of suicide on those who are left behind. My husband, Dan Tavor, a noted Israeli journalist, committed suicide in December of 1970 and left those who knew him in shock and disbelief. As for myself, I entered a world of uncertainty and confusion. A widow at the age of 24, I had to deal not only with my loss, but also the shame, blame and guilt of his suicide. Consequently, I was determined to start over, to prevail over lifes challenges and to triumph. But often I was overwhelmed by memories of my past. I realized that my secret kept me hostage, and the only way out was to confront the matter head on.Writing and rewriting the book was my way of coming to emotional completion. In the process of my healing, I learned that my story is not a rare one.The number of suicides in the USA is higher then the number of homicides.Every day in America alone, 80 people kill themselves and 1500 attempt to do so. It is a silent epidemic. No one wants talk about it. (In the past, I sometimes lied when I was asked how did my husband died.) I kept silent for 35 years. There are millions of people like me. They dont talk; they live in a world of guilt and shame.Suicide is a dreadful word. Those who think about it and wish to stop the pain, rather die than seek help. Those who left behind, rather lie than share their stories. Sara Shais journey to prevail over life challenges will touch and inspire the uncharted realms of your heart. The release of Beautiful In Black was her catalyst to create The Honoring Life Event. Its purpose to increase awareness, Remove all stigmas and empower people to transform tragedy into a life opportunity. The light at the end of the tunnel is always on!

Drawing upon his own powerful personal story, Zachary Wood shares his perspective on free speech, race, and dissenting opinions--in a world that sorely needs to learn to listen. As the former president of the student group Uncomfortable Learning at his alma mater, Williams College, Zachary Wood knows from experience about intellectual controversy. At school and beyond, there's no one Zach refuses to engage with simply because he disagrees with their beliefs--sometimes vehemently so--and this view has given him a unique platform in the media. But Zach has never shared the details of his own personal story. In Uncensored, he reveals for the first time how he grew up poor and black in Washington, DC, where the only way to survive was resisting the urge to write people off because of their backgrounds and perspectives. By sharing his troubled upbringing--from a difficult early childhood to the struggles of code-switching between his home and his elite private school--Zach makes a compelling argument for a new way of interacting with others and presents a new outlook on society's most difficult conversations.

A sequel to the award-winning The Black Composer Speaks (Scarecrow Press, 1978), this exploration of the creative world of African American composers traces the lives and careers of 40 talented individuals and, in their own words, provides perspectives on a world that has been slow to recognize their remarkable contributions to classical music. The discussion places the music of these composers within the greater context of Western art music, but analyzes it through the lenses of sociology, Western concepts of art and taste, and vernacular musical forms, including spirituals, blues, jazz, and contemporary popular music. Each chapter is devoted to an individual composer, who discusses his or her musical training, compositional techniques and style, and the composer's personal philosophy as reflected in his or her music. A selected list of compositions for each composer is included, as well as a photo and sample of the composer's "hand." Banfield offers unprecedented insight into the history and influence of the African American composer with this documentary, which will appeal to everyone from the music scholar to the general reader.
