"This book was written, published and edited by me in its entirety, and I'd like to just note that I am not a professional writer. There are most likely some errors in different places that I missed, even though I worked very hard to correct as many I could. I just grew tired and ran out of patience after proof reading and rewriting this novel over and over for many months after I finished writing it. With that being said, I hope you will enjoy my efforts to produce a story about the pain and anguish that can consume someone's mind when they are having difficulty dealing with a specific trauma. My own personal experiences that inspired this novel will remain undisclosed to the general public for obvious reasons. I'd like to thank all the readers of this novel with all my heart for giving my first novel a chance to entertain your senses."
- Christopher J. McLean

Before the rise of the professional ballet company schools, New York City was the center for many private ballet studios founded by Russian émigrés that flourished for several decades between the 1920s and 1960s. Such figures as Elisabeth Anderson-lvantzova, Mikhail Fokine, Mikhail Mordkin, Ludmilla Schollar, who were formerly with the Imperial Theatres of St. Petersburg and Moscow, conducted recognized schools of Russian ballet style and technique. Their classes were filled with many of the principal dancers of resident or touring ballet companies, such as, the Mordkin Ballet Company, Ballet Theatre, Col. de Basil’s Ballets Russes de Monte Carlo, or with principal dancers from the Broadway Theatre. One important contributor was Elisabeth Anderson-lvantzova (1890-1973). This study traces her early training at the Bolshoi Theatre School in Moscow, her career in the Bolshoi Company, her departure from Russia after the Revolution, and her subsequent professional career in Paris. Berlin, Lisbon, and New York. Anderson-Ivantzova settled in New York City in 1924, and from 1926 to 1930 she taught body movement to student actors in Richard Boleslavsky’s American Laboratory Theatre School, the first of American acting schools to teach the Stanislavskyan Method. Anderson-lvantzova founded her ballet school in 1938, which was dubbed paradoxically the “Little Bolshoi on 56th Street,” where it flourished till 1973, the year of her death.

Greenwich Village Vignettes is a collection of short stories, or vignettes, chronicling a boy’s coming of age during the time period after the Second World War, to the close of the tumultuous and life-changing decade of the 1960’s. The area was always known for its artists, bohemians and intellectuals. My world consisted of an Italian-American ghetto, with all the hopes, pitfalls and myriad characters such an environment produced. Pictures emerge that are happy, sad, funny, poignant and tragic. Pictures of life that are an homage to the Greenwich Village I knew and grew up in, and to those who passed through there with me. These recollections are based upon factual events. To a limited degree, sequences have been rearranged or juxtaposed to fit the story line. Ultimately, it is a memoir and not a document of history. Any failure to be exact is due to the many years that separate me from their occurrence. It is what I remember, and relying upon that, in itself, exposes its fallibility.

Freedom, Authority,and Resistance is the second in the 10-volume series,Lynchburg College Symposium Readings, 3rd edition. Each volume presents primary texts organized around an interdisciplinary, liberal arts theme such as education, politics, social issues, science and technology, morals and ethics. The series has been developed by Lynchburg College faculty for use in the Senior Symposium and the Lynchburg College Symposium Readings Program (SS/LCSR). While these programs are distinctive to Lynchburg College, the texts are used on many college campuses across the nation, as well as by readers interested in significant original texts on important topics. Freedom, Authority, and Resistance offers primary source readings on a wide range of topics in political thought. It presents excerpts from works important to a broad, contemporary understanding of the concerns of political theory in the west. From Plato, Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, Lenin, and King to Diderot, Douglass, Chief Joseph, Thoreau, Holocaust survivors, and Vaclav Havel — the volume brings ideas together in carefully selected excerpts. Independent thinkers, interested in considering topics such as the use of public power,the fine line between authority and oppression, or the various forms of political resistance, will appreciate the depth these readings bring to the controversies of our day.

BACK COVER COPY Since the days when fire alarms were signaled by church bells, people have been chasing fire engines. Some people just had to know where the fire was, and others actually went to the scene. Some of these �buffs� from the past include George Washington, Ben Franklin, Lillian Hitchcock Coit, Oliver Wendell Holmes, a Prince of Wales, Arthur Fiedler, and Fiorello LaGuardia. Today, when a fire engine or police car speeds by with its lights flashing and sirens wailing, we might wonder where it is going and what adventure awaits it. The church bell alarm of yesteryear has been replaced by radio, enabling ordinary citizens to be part of the excitement. The drama can range from a major conflagration to a high-speed pursuit, or merely a politician speeding to his own fund-raiser. Some buffs will go to events to watch the spectacle unfold, to record the event as journalists, or possibly to witness the scene of a crime as if they were part of the incident itself. Many thrill-seekers have become obsessed with chasing this kind of excitement. Complete with a buff�s compendium of jargon and radio codes and frequencies, The Buff Chronicles tells the story of these infatuated people, their foibles, and the events they follow.

ABOUT THE BOOK AND AUTHOR:
=================
25 plus years after graduating high school, I have enjoyed much success working for fortune 500, fortune 100, and fortune 50 companies as a Programmer, Fiber Optic Engineer, Financial Securities Broker, Operations Executive and successful entrepreneur. Today, I am a top tier technology executive, author and radio show host. My journey over the years has taken me far beyond where I was as a kid and into areas of business and personal achievement I could never have imagined.
As a kid, like many other poor black kids, I watched TV to find images of “success” that looked different from neighborhood success where were people doing well (surviving) but working four jobs, dealing drugs, reselling stolen goods and living on welfare. The only problem with watching TV is, the shows only provide you the end result of someone being a business executive, lawyer or doctor with very little information on how to make it happen. As a result, many young black kids identify with sports figures that make it rich because the sports plan seems simple and clear “play good ball, go pro, and get rich”.
Unfortunately, I never played a sport well enough to make millions so I had to figure out how to make it through life as a regular guy coming from a poor neighborhood. To help others, I documented the details of my journey and provide the “raw scoop” on many of the highs and lows of my experience as they relate to financial planning, education, family, relationships, racism, and much more. I outline what happens behind the scenes of becoming a black executive.
Release 2.0 provides some additional insights and outlines how “regular people” (most of the population) can find success with the right information and attitude. In addition to the intimate personal documentation, The Glass In My Throat has “Personal Cookbooks” which are designed to help our kids and parents focus on the basics that truly drive success. The cookbooks also provide information on making it through college, operating as an executive, and becoming an entrepreneur.
Thank you for checking out my book.

We are rising, - all are rising. The black and white together!
--The Little Black Boy of Atlanta

Advocating for restorative justice; racial harmony and reconciliation constitute Howard University�s vision for a better society. Since 1867, Howard�s leaders have come from diverse backgrounds--theologians, army generals, educators, philosophers and lawyers. However, what is common to all of them is their transformational leadership skill. Under their leadership, Howard has produced leaders for the Black World and the Developing Nations more than any other institution of Higher Learning worldwide.

In this anthology, Ewa Unoke, a Bison, assembles great inspirational quotations from Howard�s leaders in honor of Alma Mater�s educational philosophy - Leadership for America and the Global Community. The choice of short quotable quotes is consistent with the African philosophical use of aphorisms and proverbs instead of exposition. As the Africans say, the words of our ancestors are words of wisdom, the wise man or woman listens and gets wiser.

Black liberation education and transitional justice will likely serve as millennial prescriptions for world peace and security because tomorrow is uncertain but today is soon enough, according to an Igbo metaphor, Onyema-echi.

Dr.Ewa Unoke shares with us his favorite mantras for freedom from his Alma Mater, Howard University. Let all who read them be leaders like Gandhi who �gently shake the world� until the �table of brotherhood� that Dr. Martin Luther King talked about becomes a reality. Peace is within our grasp if we only reach out and grab the hand of the person who needs a hand up. If we all did that, all around the world, justice for all would be more than just a dream. It is a goal worth striving for. Truly, it is a dream worth dying for.
--Karen Hernandez, Human Rights Activist

Ewa, your admiration for the Howard spirit comes through loud and clear. All of America should know more and learn more from Howard.
--Dr. Charles Reitz, Professor of Philosophy, Ethics and Logic
