A Shadow On the Household,
Author: Bryan Prince
In A Shadow on the Household, Bryan Prince, a descendant of slaves, brings to life the heart-wrenching story of the Weems family and their struggle to liberate themselves from slavery. John Weems, a man who purchased his own freedom, paid the owner of his enslaved wife and eight children an annual fee to keep them together at one plantation. Mining newspapers, private letters, diaries, estate records, marriage registries, and abolitionist papers for details of a story cloaked in secrecy, Bryan Prince has rescued the Weems family and their plight from historical oblivion.
In "Stealing Democracy", Professor Spencer Overton has brought a much needed and very incisive analysis of the deeply flawed American voting infrastructure. After two successive close presidential elections, the American public must hold government officials accountable for unjust manipulation of the electoral process. This book is a must for every American who cares about the integrity of our electoral system.
In early 2009, Overton was appointed Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Office of Legal Policy in the Department of Justice, by the Obama Administration.
