Burro Genio

Descriere: De pie frente al publico, Victor Villasenor miro al grupo de maestros sentados frente a el, y su mente se lleno de recuerdos de infancia llenos de humillacion y abuso por parte de sus profesores. Se sintio enfurecer. Con el corazon en la mano, comenzo a hablar de esos abusos. Y cuando termino, para su gran sorpresa, encontro a todos los profesores de pie aplau-diendolo enfaticamente. Muchas de las personas en el publico no lograban contener sus lagrimas. Asi comienzan las conmovedoras y apasionadas memorias de Victor Villasenor. A pesar de ser muy talentoso e imaginativo desde muy nino, tuvo que vivir con una dificultad de aprendizaje (no fue sino hasta los 44 anos de edad que fue diagnosticado con un caso grave de dislexia), y la frustracion de ser latino en una escuela americana en la que solo se hablaba ingles. A pesar de los profesores que lo maltrataban porque no podia hablar ingles, Villasenor se aferro a su sueno de un dia convertirse en escritor. Hoy en dia, es considerado uno de los autores mas importantes de nuestra era.

Papa Jack: Jack Johnson and the Era of White Hopes

When Jack Johnson defeated white heavyweight champion Jim Jeffries in 1910, it was America's notions of racial superiority that staggered under his blows. Amid riots and lynchings, the search began for the Great White Hope who could put the "uppity" new champion in his place. Here is the startling true story of the most famous--and most hated--black American of his day. "Papa Jack" takes us into a violent and sordid world. It is an astonishing tale of black defiance--and white retribution--set against the dramatic canvas of sports and spectacle in Jim Crow America.
