Lincoln's Final Hours

()

Price: $24.96

When John Wilkes Booth fired his derringer point-blank into President Abraham Lincoln's head, he set in motion a series of dramatic consequences that would upend the lives of ordinary Washingtonians and Americans alike. In a split second, the story of a nation was changed. During the hours that followed, America's future would hinge on what happened in a cramped back bedroom at Petersen's Boardinghouse, directly across the street from Ford's Theatre. There, a twenty-three-year-old surgeon - fresh out of medical school - struggled to keep the president alive while Mary Todd Lincoln moaned at her husband's bedside. In Lincoln's Final Hours, author Kathryn Canavan takes a magnifying glass to the last moments of the president's life and to the impact his assassination had on a country still reeling from a bloody civil war. With vivid, thoroughly researched prose and a reporter's eye for detail, this fast-paced account not only furnishes a glimpse into John Wilkes Booth's personal and political motivations but also illuminates the stories of ordinary people whose lives were changed forever by the assassination. While countless works on the Lincoln assassination exist, Lincoln's Final Hours moves beyond the well-known traditional accounts, offering readers a front-row seat to the drama and horror of Lincoln's death by putting them in the shoes of the audience in Ford's Theatre that dreadful evening. Through her careful narration of the twists of fate that placed the president in harm's way, of the plotting conversations Booth had with his accomplices, and of the immediate aftermath of the assassination, Canavan illustrates how the experiences of a single night changed the course of history.

Hidden Gems Volume Two
Hidden Gems Volume Two
Published by Oberon Books 2012
ISBN 9781849436984,1849436983
432 pages

‘A terrific collection of work by writers I admire hugely. Each of them prove that there is no such thing as the black experience, but only black experiences.’ Roy Williams This second and sister volume to Hidden Gems showcases a further range of plays by Black British writers whose work reaches beyond themes too-often perceived by mainstream theatre commissioning as defining Black people’s experiences. The plays, monodrama and libretto represent subject-matter from woman-centred history, revolutionary politics, trans-racial adoption and African-diasporic familial heritage, as contoured by the writers’ boundary-crossing profiles as poets, playwrights, performers and directors. The accompanying critical introductions are provided by people committed to recognising the aesthetic and...



Contemporary Black British Playwrights
Contemporary Black British Playwrights
Published by Palgrave Macmillan 2015
ISBN 9781137493101,1137493100
268 pages

The first decade of the twenty-first century has been described as witnessing a 'cultural renaissance' of black British playwriting, demonstrated by an increased visibility at London's main theatres, including the National Theatre, the Royal Court, the Soho Theatre, the Tricycle, and even in the West End. At the forefront of this increased visibility are four key playwrights, Kwame Kwei-Armah, debbie tucker green, Roy Williams, and Bola Agbaje, whose plays arguably exemplify twenty-first century black British playwrights' engagement with topical social issues, which have warranted their increased recognition by the mainstream. Through an exploration of these four playwrights' portrayal of a range of topical themes, such as urban crime and violence, domestic and sexual abuse, immigration...

Carrie Nation in Ann Arbor, May 3, 1902 --- the mob cheers for a State Street hatchet job: but hey, who "axed" that woman to come here, anyway?
Carrie Nation in Ann Arbor, May 3, 1902 --- the mob cheers for a State Street hatchet job: but hey, who "axed" that woman to come here, anyway?

DO BY ALL MEANS CLICK "ALL SIZES" TO VIEW THIS SCENE "IN THE LARGE." Carrie A. Nation (1846-1911), the "Vessel of Wrath," was 56 and at the peak of her fame on May 3, 1902, when, standing on the back of a horse-drawn cab at the corner of State Street and North University Avenue, she engaged in rollicking repartee with a boisterous crowd of Michigan students. Emerging as a Prohibition crusader in Kansas in 1900, Mrs. Nation had rapidly obtained national renown by vandalizing the stock and furnishings of numerous saloons -- at first hurling rocks, then switching her M.O. to smashing with a hatchet -- a tool that she carried beneath her waterproof cape. She was arrested again and again, and paid the fines for her "hatchetations" by lecturing and selling souvenir hatchets and photographs. In this area, she spoke in nearby Milan and in Ann Arbor (at the Athens Theater, the former Opera House, at the SW corner of Main and Ann). Although she entered...

Cheka Kidogo exhibition, London
Cheka Kidogo exhibition, London

This is just one of some 30 of Rankin's great portraits, set in exhibition panels I created for the Cheka Kidogo exhibition. Photos of exhibition: Kathy Slack BBC report: news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/7680597.stm Cheka kidogo means ‘laugh a little’ in Swahili. And surprisingly, people still are – even though they are living in the midst of one of the world’s deadliest civil wars, which has already killed five million people, and made more than one million homeless. World-renowned portrait photographer Rankin travelled with Oxfam to a refugee camp near Goma, in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo, the heart of this generally unreported conflict. The result is a stunning series of pictures. They capture the resilience of the people who live there, despite the daily threat of violence and rape they face. These portraits show people’s true personalities, and highlight their humanity, their strength, and their hope for the future. Don’t miss this chance to view these...

Royal Opera House
Royal Opera House

9.4.09 The flight arrived on time; and the twelve hours while on board passed quickly and without incident. To be sure, the quality of the Cathay Pacific service was exemplary once again. Heathrow reminds me of Newark International. The décor comes straight out of the sterile 80's and is less an eyesore than an insipid background to the rhythm of human activity, such hustle and bustle, at the fore. There certainly are faces from all races present, creating a rich mosaic of humanity which is refreshing if not completely revitalizing after swimming for so long in a sea of Chinese faces in Hong Kong. Internet access is sealed in England, it seems. Nothing is free; everything is egregiously monetized from the wireless hotspots down to the desktop terminals. I guess Hong Kong has spoiled me with its abundant, free access to the information superhighway. 11.4.09 Despite staying in a room with five other backpackers, I have been sleeping well. The mattress and pillow are firm; my...
