From a powerful new voice on racial justice, an eye-opening account of growing up Black, Christian, and female in middle-class white America. Austin Channing Brown's first encounter with a racialized America came at age 7, when she discovered her parents named her Austin to deceive future employers into thinking she was a white man. Growing up in majority-white schools, organizations, and churches, Austin writes, "I had to learn what it means to love blackness," a journey that led to a lifetime spent navigating America's racial divide as a writer, speaker and expert who helps organizations practice genuine inclusion. In a time when nearly all institutions (schools, churches, universities, businesses) claim to value "diversity" in their mission statements, I'm Still Here is a powerful account of how and why our actions so often fall short of our words. Austin writes in breathtaking detail about her journey to self-worth and the pitfalls that kill our attempts at racial justice, in stories that bear witness to the complexity of America's social fabric--from Black Cleveland neighborhoods to private schools in the middle-class suburbs, from prison walls to the boardrooms at majority-white organizations. For readers who have engaged with America's legacy on race through the writing of Ta-Nehisi Coates and Michael Eric Dyson, I'm Still Here is an illuminating look at how white, middle-class, Evangelicalism has participated in an era of rising racial hostility, inviting the reader to confront apathy, recognize God's ongoing work in the world, and discover how blackness--if we let it--can save us all.

The unfortunate popular perception is that when someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer's or dementia, they are immediately lost to themselves, to those who love them and to those they love. In I'M STILL HERE, John Zeisel shows how you can connect with someone through the fog of dementia and build a relationship with the person within. This groundbreaking book focuses on connecting with Alzheimer's sufferers through the abilities that don't diminish over the course of the disease, such as understanding music, art, facial expressions and touch. By harnessing these capacities, and by using other approaches to treatment, this book demonstrates how it is possible to offer sufferers a quality of life with a connection to others and to the world around them.

Life is an adventure. Make the most of it and remember; The best is yet to come. I am now in my eighties, and for many years I have wanted to share some of my travel adventures with friends and family. Some adventures have been hilarious, some have been dangerous, all have been exciting. Many of the places I have been to no longer exist, and some of my adventures would not be possible today. My world is disappearing before my eyes and I want to record some of it before it is completely gone. To my children and grandchildren; I want them to know Grandma was not always elderly. There was a time when she climbed Mount Vesuvius, rode camels in the desert and para-sailed over the ocean. I began traveling when I was very young and the world was a much friendlier place. Each trip was a lovely adventure, there were no fast food places, hotels always had a room and you never stood in line. So here are my stories for you to read and enjoy, and hopefully to remember me, and yes, Im still here.
