By Nathaniel Northington

Seven days after Nate Northington was born, in October 1947, the NAACP made an appeal to the world on racism before the United Nations.

As Nate grew up within an ever-changing and often volatile world plagued by bigotry and hatred, even he could not have predicted what would happen twenty years later.

Destined to play football from an early age, Nate matured into a talented player whose good grades and competitive spirit quickly caught the eye of college recruiters. As he chronicles his journey from high school to his experience as the first black to sign an athletic scholarship at the University of Kentucky, Nate shares a glimpse into how he and other African American football players fought on the gridiron throughout the civil rights movement to achieve success both on and off the field. Every moment would lead up to the crucial period in American sports history when, after the sudden death of Greg Page—Nate’s close friend and teammate—he would break through the barriers of racism and become the first black to play football in the SEC.

Still Running is a story not only about the game of football and integration but also about one man who was inspired to keep running, find grace through God’s love, and ultimately become a sports pioneer.

By Christopher T. Rand
At the outset, the members of author Christopher T. Rand’s family lived in a world of great wealth. They were among the richest people in the United States. But they then faced a dilemma: compelled to choose between staying on in their ancestral world or keeping up with the times in the nation around them and integrating themselves into the American mainstream. With each generation, the pressure on these individuals to choose between escape or immersion into the society became more and more intense.

In Silver Diaspora, Rand examines his family’s roots in the northeastern United States and chronicles his journey through these times, against the backdrop of the family history. Embarking on a search of a better new world, Rand’s parents leave the East Coast and land in California. From here, this memoir follows Rand through college at Berkeley, travels abroad, work in the petroleum industry and his experiences as a writer.

Describing the people, places and experiences that impacted Rand’s life, Silver Diaspora provides one man’s insight into the world in the latter two-thirds of the last century.

By JB WinSi

JB WinSi’s life has been filled with love and loss, joy and sorrow, vitality and sickness, and triumph and challenge. In fact, she has so many stories to tell, she couldn’t choose just one.

That’s why she wrote two.

Healthcare Hell invites readers within the nightmare she faced as a patient and caregiver, and her Revelations of a Compelled Black Woman brings you inside her dreams of a better life.

The American healthcare system is broken. Too many are trapped without affordable, accessible, or even acceptable care. Healthcare Hell explores the tragedies and triumphs of those placed under the healthcare scalpel. JB’s love for humanity drew her to work at hospice, where she had a front-row seat to the end-of-life journey and the ways the system failed its patients when they most needed it. And it was her love of justice that inspired her to share her thoughts on a system that needs its own miracle cure.

At the many intersections of her life, she’s embarked on more than her share of emotional odysseys. In her more reflective Revelations of a Compelled Black Woman, she shares some of her life’s most engaging, disturbing, amusing, and thought-provoking experiences. An award-winning community advocate, she served her fellow man as a volunteer, public speaker, and ordained minister.

Despite it all, JB clings to a rock-solid faith that there are still miracles waiting for those who believe. Take heart. Your dreams are calling you forward!

By Rudolph Halouk Daus

When Rudolph Halouk Daus was born in 1933 in Paris, France, to an Ottomon princess and an American Beaux Arts educated entrepreneur with Jewish Rabbinical and French Catholic roots, no one had any idea that in just seven years, the German Army would invade France and uproot his family, sending all of them to fulfill new destinies.

Daus shares a fascinating story of his diverse background, his ancestors, and his personal odyssey as he progressed from extraordinary beginnings to a miraculous escape from Nazi-occupied France and finally to an incredible naval career capped with command of two warships. As he details his singular progress across continents, Daus provides an unforgettable glimpse into a circuitous and star-crossed life as he experienced adventures, challenges, and heartbreaking trials as an American Naval Officer and was eventually led into a second career as a law firm manager and a third career as an entrepreneur whose ventures steered him from America to Turkey, Japan, and the Wild East of Central Asia.

The Crescent Odyssey shares the fascinating story of a man for all seasons and his unique journey from his Turkey Ottoman soldier’s roots to his escapades as an American warship captain and entrepreneur.

“The Crescent Odyssey is a superb read and tells the story of the life and diverse background of an American Naval Officer, his shipmates, his family, his ancestors and his life at sea during the Cold War … easy to understand for either the experienced sailor or one accustomed to life ashore ...”

— Admiral Frank Kelso, United States Navy (Retired), 44th Chief of Naval Operations

By S. P. Perone

No decade before or since witnessed cultural, technical, and social changes as dramatic as the 1960s. Pop culture reflected a transition from the rigid 1950s to the permissive 1970s. The Vietnam War spawned student protests, draft card burning, and a hippie counter-culture.

Caught up in these turbulent times was author Sam Perone, a naïve young professor beginning his career at the tender age of twenty-three—young enough to run in student circles. Perone’s unlikely arrival in 1962 at a prestigious university—lacking credentials and experience—launched an erratic journey laced with angst, liberating diversions, exciting research, bitter conflicts, dismal failures, and exhilarating successes. In Turned On!, he shares his own life story against the backdrop of the times.

A collection of personal experiences that characterize that turbulent decade, this memoir tells about the time Perone got tipsy during his university job interview; the weeks he slept in chemistry labs; the explosions, floods, flashes, pranks, and jolts that marked his early research; the wild parties fueled by lab alcohol; his unexpected “love affair” in 1967 San Francisco; the sometimes serious, sometimes disturbing, and always laughable instances of faculty clashes; and finally his pivotal involvement in the minicomputer revolution.

Turned On! describes a personal journey toward self-realization in a world that was rapidly changing in fascinating ways. It captures the impact on campus life of historical events that defined the 1960s, but also provides insights to the inner workings of the academic world in that era and beyond.

By Elaine H Claypool

Everybody’s Baby, No One’s Child is a candid and insightful story of a challenging life and triumph over odds. Elaine Claypool’s memoir covers nearly eighty years of personal experience, and includes the vast societal changes during that span of time.

This is a story that begins with an unconventional childhood in which Elaine was swept away from the life she had known. In her teenage years she lived in Washington, DC, Japan, New York, Belgium and returned to DC, all within six years time. During that period she had a close encounter with a war, took care of her family during a crisis, and was self supporting at age eighteen.

A life changing journey full of hurdles continued that included grief and rebirth in her midlife, but she was determined to overcome difficult occurrence and have a meaningful and successful life. This open and poignant story of her life, told with forthrightness and in good grace, has much to tell about the power to overcome, the importance of forgiveness, and spiritual triumph.

Elaine hid parts of her history for decades. It took a very long time to know that all of our experience is meaningful and for a reason. Now aware of the importance of her hard earned learning, and being at peace with her past, she shares her life lessons in this memoir.
