Taking into consideration multiple facets including a social impact bond program, reparations, peace building instead of or in conjunction with policing, desegregation, working alongside corporations and more, he creates a thoughtful budget and plan to right these wrongs. It is hard to believe that this is the author’s debut novel and I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

As the assault deepens and everything they love is laid to waste, black ashes floating over the rooftops, Zora and her friends are forced to rebuild themselves, over and over. Reluctant to believe that hostilities will last more than a handful of weeks, she stays behind while the city falls under siege. He also provides a glossary of terms used throughout the book which includes spatial racism, segrenomics and the White L (the predominantly White area of Baltimore that runs along the Charles Street corridor to the Inner Harbor then east to Fells Point. Brown reveals that ongoing historical trauma caused by a combination of policies, practices, systems, and budgets is at the root of uprisings and crises in hypersegregated cities around the country. All I can say is, if you are looking for a book that unveils the hidden costs of war on the citizens forced into it, and that juxtaposes many opposite feelings - vulnerability and resilience, hope and hopelessness, devastation and creation, this is the book for you.He identifies forces that have resulted in "constant battering" of Black neighborhoods, weathering them over time and causing destruction. At Black Butterfly Books, we welcome opportunities to collaborate on projects that serve the youth and their communities. This compilation is dedicated to the foster child, the youth-in-crisis, and individuals striving to achieve positive change. Beautifully written and hauntingly evocative, Black Butterflies distils into a single consciousness a nation’s violent trauma and an artist’s sense of hope.

The Bosnian war of 1992–1995 was something I knew little about, and this book helped me get some context.

He tracks the perpetrators to Istanbul, is assisted by Turkish- Geordie double agent Whitley Bey and meets Afro-Japanese gay agent Kingdom Kum, and also that the aforementioned figures were poisoned by a malignant chemical derived from the eponymous insect. Brown referencing Noliwe Rooks term "segrenomics," that she used to describe how resources can be hoarded in white schools to the detriment of Black schools. She has to spend Christmas break alone at the Black Butterfly, an old inn at the coldest, bleakest edge of America--the coast of Maine.

Explains how ongoing efforts for urban development and racial justice have been squandered and hijacked, often inflicting more pain on already traumatized communities. Set in 1992, Zora Kočović is an art professor who lives in Sarajevo with her husband, Franjo (a former journalist), and her 83 years old mother.Black Butterflies vividly details the costs of war, the extent of destruction, and survival strategies for people who are caught in it. And a timeless entry in Drake’s book from 2015 that I will cherish forever as Robin Williams was one of my absolute favorites and was lost all too soon.
