Self-Taught by Heather Andrea Williams

In this previously untold story of African American self-education, Heather Andrea Williams moves across time to examine African Americans relationship to literacy during slavery, during the Civil War, and in the first decades of freedom. Self-Taught traces the historical antecedents to freedpeoples intense desire to become literate and demonstrates how the visions of enslaved African Americans emerged into plans and action once slavery ended.

Enslaved people, Williams contends, placed great value in the practical power of literacy, whether it was to enable them to read the Bible for themselves or to keep informed of the abolition movement and later the progress of the Civil War. Some slaves devised creative and subversive means to acquire literacy, and when slavery ended, they became the first teachers of other freedpeople. Soon overwhelmed by the demands for education, they called on northern missionaries to come to their aid. Williams argues that by teaching, building schools, supporting teachers, resisting violence, and claiming education as a civil right, African Americans transformed the face of education in the South to the great benefit of both black and white southerners.

Is it sinful to pray for an evil person’s death?

We think about grief a lot around here — we write about types of grief, grief theory, personal reflections, creative expression for coping with grief, practical ideas for managing grief, and on and on and on. But there are some days that all seems like a lot to take in. We think back to the basics. Not the theory stuff, not the ideas about how to cope — just the really basic things that people never tell you about grief. So, with your help, that is what we have today — a quick and dirty list of the things we wish we had known about grief before we knew anything about grief.

Our culture tells us that we should fight hard against age, illness, and death: "Do not go gentle into that good night," Dylan Thomas wrote. And holding on to life, to our loved ones, is indeed a basic human instinct. However, as an illness advances, "raging against the dying of the light" often begins to cause undue suffering, and "letting go" may instead feel like the next stage. This fact sheet discusses the normal shifting emotions and considerations involved in holding on and letting go. Exploring these issues ahead of time will allow a person with a chronic illness to have some choice or control over his or her care, help families with the process of making difficult decisions, and may make this profound transition a little easier for everyone concerned.

For my dad's 70th birthday I flew to Adelaide to see him. He was moved into a palliative care unit the same day. Normally sharp, witty and alert, he went into a dream-like state speaking of the past. His face went grey and gaunt. After some tests they finally gave him a saline drip which brought back his kidney function and he became instantly more coherent, wondering where he was and how he had arrived there. I didn't know this at the time, but the drip would give him another two months of life during which he was transferred to a hospice and suffered a slow process of deterioration in a place he never wished to die.
