The only woman ever invited to compete in ABC's Men's Superstars, today Ann is the only female VP on the only operation side of the NBA and an award-wining broadcaster who has worked for over thirty years with nearly every major television network But her meteoric rise wasn't without controversy. The press skewered her '79 NBA Pacers bid, while the first Professional Women's Basketball League accused her of "shamming herself" and slighting her sisters. Ann simply wanted to play basketball. And she wanted to play with the best. The first girl to play in an all-boy after school sports program, Ann later tried out for the boy's high school basketball team while parents screamed, "You're letting some girl beat you?" and classmates questioned her sexuality; but Ann refused to be held down. From becoming the first female to get a full athletic scholarship to a Division I school, to her historic NBA bid, Ann's memoris never let up, yet her athletic career is only half the story. She would endure the loss of a brother and a sister, and the untimely death of the only man she ever loved, Dodger great, Don Drysdale, leaving her with three young children to raise. Still, through it all, she continued to break ground. Book jacket.

New York and its folklore scholars hold an important place in the history of the discipline. In New York dialogue between folklore researchers in the academy and those working in the public arena has been highly productive. In this volume, the works of New York's academic and public folklorists are presented together. Unlike some folklore anthologies, New York State Folklife Reader does not follow an organizational plan based on regions or genres. Because the New York Folklore Society has always tried to "give folklore back to the people," the editors decided to divide the edited volume into sections about life processes that all New York state residents share. The book begins with five essays on various aspects of folk cultural memory: personal, family, community, and historical processes of remembrance expressed through narrative, ritual, and other forms of folklore. Following these essays, subsequent sections explore aspects of life in New York through the lens of Play, Work, Resistance, and Food. Both the New York Folklore Society and its journal were, as society cofounder Louis Jones explained, "intended to reach not just the professional folklorists but those of the general public who were interested in the oral traditions of the State." Written in an accessible and readable style, this volume offers a glimpse into New York State's rich cultural diversity.

Musaicum Books presents to you this meticulously collection of hundreds of life stories, recorded interviews and incredible vivid testimonies of former slaves from the American southern states, including photos of the people being interviewed and their extraordinary narratives. After the end of Civil War in 1865, more than four million slaves were set free. There were several efforts to record the remembrances of the former slaves. The Federal Writers' Project was one such project by the United States federal government to support writers during the Great Depression by asking them to interview and record the myriad stories and experiences of slavery of former slaves. The resulting collection preserved hundreds of life stories from 17 U.S. states that would otherwise have been lost in din of modernity and America's eagerness to deliberately forget the blot on its recent past.
