The author's first volume of hisPan-African Chronologycovers the period from 1400 through the end of the American Civil War. The second volume chronicles the most significant events in the African diaspora from the end of the Civil War through the pre–World War I years. This book is the third volume in the series. The period it covers is from 1914 through 1929, a time when people of African descent experienced two seminal events: World War I and the Black Awakening. In World War I, people of African descent fought for both sides, earning distinction on the battlefields of France as well as in the jungles and deserts of Africa. The "Black Awakening," a period from 1919 through 1929, marked the dawning of global awareness, not only for persons of African descent but also for non–African peoples, of the contributions of African people to the culture of the world. The book is arranged by year; events of each year are grouped by region-the Americas, Europe, Australia, Asia, and Africa. It also has two special biographical divisions for W.E.B. DuBois and Marcus Garvey.

Conjuring Culture

This book provides a sophisticated new interdisciplinary interpretation of the formulation and evolution of African American religion and culture. Theophus Smith argues for the central importance of "conjure"--a magical means of transforming reality--in black spirituality and culture. Smith shows that the Bible, the sacred text of Western civilization, has in fact functioned as a magical formulary for African Americans. Going back to slave religion, and continuing in black folk practice and literature to the present day, the Bible has provided African Americans with ritual prescriptions for prophetically re-envisioning, and thereby transforming, their history and culture. In effect the Bible is a "conjure book" for prescribing cures and curses, and for invoking extraordinary and Divine powers to effect changes in the conditions of human existence--and to bring about justice and freedom. Biblical themes, symbols, and figures like Moses, the Exodus, the Promised Land, and the Suffering Servant, as deployed by African Americans, have crucially formed and reformed not only black culture, but American society as a whole. Smith examines not only the religious and political uses of conjure, but its influence on black aesthetics, in music, drama, folklore, and literature. The concept of conjure, he shows, is at the heart of an indigenous and still vital spirituality, with exciting implications for reformulating the next generation of black studies and black theology. Even more broadly, Smith proposes, "conjuring culture" can function as a new paradigm for understanding Western religious and cultural phenomena generally.

This book presents, with commentary, a portion of the art collection of Jerry Evenrud. It is the largest known collection of images of the parable of the Prodigal Son and encompasses works from 1540 to 1948. The historical span of the collection affirms the continuing resonance of the parable. The media range from etchings, paintings, ceramics, sculpture, and fabric. The collection reveals the desire of the artists to delve into the meaning of the parable and to convey that meaning to others. Some artists depict the entire narrative in a series of works, usually four to six segments. Others focus on one aspect, such as the pig pen or the return of the prodigal. The segment most frequently portrayed by a single print is the homecoming embrace by the fatherthe scene that represents the focus of the parable and thus of faithgrace and forgiveness.
