Quality of education is a universal concern, but what happens when students start to fall between the cracks in the system? As part of her research for The rose that grew from concrete, Diane Wishart interviewed many at-risk students in an urban high school, including a number of Aboriginal students. What Wishart discovered weren't statistics, but teens and their experiences, needs, and personalities. The qualitative analysis that comes from these interviews doesn't supply a blueprint to fix the educational system. However, it does give a fresh, objective viewpoint for policy makers, scholars, teachers, and the general public to consider.

Rose from the Concrete is a unique book of poetry filled with passion, with a delightful spin on my roller-coaster life. One of my dreams was to become a writer. What a journey! It appeared impossible. The struggles in my mind were so enormous, especially the audacity of thinking I could go beyond my capabilities. Beautiful expressions of loveliness, these masterfully crafted poems did not start out that way. I had to believe in myself and my creations. I had to say it, eliminating the seeds of weeds in my thinking, and speaking, planting seeds of possibilities knowing that they would grow. Now armed with fruits of confidence, I release these beauties. They will whisk you away into the arms of hope. They will inspire you.From dirt to diamond, becoming a savage, eating cabbage, the truth is, I learn to trust that, it is not by might, nor by power but by the Spirit of the Lord Almighty. I rise.

The True Story of City of Lies, the Murders of Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. and the Implication of the Los Angeles Police Department

Acclaimed journalist Randall Sullivan follows Russell Poole, a highly decorated LAPD detective who in 1997 was called to investigate a controversial cop-on-cop shooting, eventually to discover that the officer killed was tied to Marion “Suge” Knight’s notorious gangsta rap label, Death Row Records. During his investigation, Poole came to realize that a growing cadre of black officers were allied not only with Death Row, but with the murderous Bloods street gang. And incredibly, Poole began to uncover evidence that at least some of these “gangsta cops” may have been involved in the murders of rap superstars Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur. Igniting a firestorm of controversy in the music industry and the Los Angeles media, the hardcover publication of LAbyrinth helped to prompt two lawsuits against the LAPD (one brought by the widow and mother of Notorious B.I.G., the other brought by Poole himself) that may finally bring this story completely out of the shadows.

It's been almost 20 years since poet, revolutionary, convict, and movie star, Tupac Amaru Shakur (a.k.a 2Pac, Makaveli, or simply 'pac), was gunned down at age 25 while he sat in traffic with Suge Knight near the Las Vegas Strip following a Mike Tyson fight at MGM Grand. In the new updated and expanded third edition of this acclaimed biography, Las Vegas crime writer Cathy Scott has finally been able to include the previously unpublished chapter featuring the account of that last fateful night from "Big Frank," the rapper's now-deceased personal bodyguard. The raw no-holds-barred narrative, which includes exclusive photo evidence (including of Tupac's autopsy), is the definitive account of the unsolved murder of Tupac Shakur: the many possible motives, the failed investigation, the rap wars, the killing of Biggie Smalls, the Bloods-Crips connection, the Suge Knight and Death Row Records association, and the subsequent fate of numerous principals involved in the aftermath. It is also a sensitive, candid, and insightful account of the contradictory icon who remains not only one of the most influential rappers ever but, with more than 75 million records sold worldwide, he's also one of the best-selling music artists of all time. The music of Tupac Shakur is the legacy of his life. The Killing of Tupac Shakur is the legacy of his death.
