Using multiple talents, he became an executive producer, publicist, graphic designer, promoter, author, blogger, philanthropist and music producer rolled in one. To secure his legacy, find a balance between the creative and business side of the industry while adjusting to his new city he promoted his music on social networking sites and published a blog website. This journal started as a news page on his website when he noticed that the page had become a reference point for a Hip Hop antagonist who, from behind the scenes used subtle methods to sabotage his connections or publicized events. Realizing this, Freddy Will transformed his news page to his blog site. These entries were published on that site. This is why there are dates under each title; to indicate when they were originally published. The entries were reedited for this Journal.
8 years later, the blog produced an audience of over 30, 000. As a Hip Hop artist who gives his views on various subjects Freddy Will could not allow political correctness to stand in the way of his narrative. Giving fans a look into the development and the release of his albums and books and these journal entries served as a platform to dispel negative facts, misleading rumors or misconceptions of Hip Hop Kulture in general. The purpose is to demonstrate that, in addition to talent, and social influence, Hip Hop artists can also be intellectually inclined. This journal covers Freddy Will's strong views on religious, cultural and traditional beliefs, issues related to romantic relationships, human and civil rights. To promote his books and albums these entries express what he is about.
A provocative meditation on race, Claudia Rankine's long-awaited follow up to her groundbreaking book Don't Let Me Be Lonely: An American Lyric.
Claudia Rankine's bold new book recounts mounting racial aggressions in ongoing encounters in twenty-first-century daily life and in the media. Some of these encounters are slights, seeming slips of the tongue, and some are intentional offensives in the classroom, at the supermarket, at home, on the tennis court with Serena Williams and the soccer field with Zinedine Zidane, online, on TV-everywhere, all the time. The accumulative stresses come to bear on a person's ability to speak, perform, and stay alive. Our addressability is tied to the state of our belonging, Rankine argues, as are our assumptions and expectations of citizenship. In essay, image, and poetry, Citizen is a powerful testament to the individual and collective effects of racism in our contemporary, often named "post-race" society.
Plato's account of Socrates' trial and death (399 BC) is a significant moment in Classical literature and the life of Classical Athens. In these four dialogues, Plato develops the Socratic belief in responsibility for one's self and shows Socrates living and dying under his philosophy. In Euthyphro, Socrates debates goodness outside the courthouse; Apology sees him in court, rebutting all charges of impiety; in Crito, he refuses an entreaty to escape from prison; and in Phaedo, Socrates faces his impending death with calmness and skilful discussion of immortality.
Christopher Rowe's introduction to his powerful new translation examines the book's themes of identity and confrontation, and explores how its content is less historical fact than a promotion of Plato's Socratic philosophy.
