Most African Americans, in tracing their family’s past, encounter a series of daunting obstacles. Slavery was a brutally efficient nullifier of identity, willfully denying black men and women even their names. Here, scholar Henry Louis Gates, Jr., backed by an elite team of geneticists and researchers, takes 19 extraordinary African Americans on a once unimaginable journey, tracing family sagas through US history and back to Africa.Those whose recovered pasts collectively form an African American "people’s history" of the United States include celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey, Whoopi Goldberg, Chris Rock, Don Cheadle, Chris Tucker, Morgan Freeman, Tina Turner, and Quincy Jones; writers such as Maya Angelou and Bliss Broyard; leading thinkers such as Harvard divinity professor Peter Gomes, the Reverend T. D. Jakes, neurosurgeon Ben Carson, sociologist Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot; and famous achievers such as Mae Jemison, Tom Joyner, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, and Linda Johnson Rice.More than a work of history, In Search of Our Roots is a book of revelatory importance that, for the first time, brings to light the lives of ordinary men and women who, by courageous example, blazed a path for their famous descendants. 1.

Few events have become as iconic as Gery Keszler's annual Life Ball-for all not to forget that AIDS is still present. From Bill Clinton to Whoopi Goldberg, from Naomi Campbell to Elton John, the worlds of politics and fashion unite at amfAR's (the American Foundation for AIDS Research) gala in Vienna, designed each year by a different artist and now one of the most coveted events in Europe. The spectacle invariably turns into an all-night party with several thousand donors dressed in the most stunning and outrageous costumes. This book is Michel Comte's portrait of the glamour and grit of the Life Ball. Comte remembers: "My first journey started in New York. We all boarded a large chartered Airbus. Wherever I looked, there was somebody I knew, had read about or was interested in meeting. The experience onboard reminded me of a sixties rock-'n'-roll charter. People were frolicking through the aisles with glasses of champagne. In Vienna my assistants and I started working early afternoon before the legendary event began. Everyone was creating something special; chaos later turned into the most surreal experience. From the dazzling black-tie dinner to the fashion show, the performances and the late-night party, it all seemed like a crazy mid-summer night's dream. Here is our story."

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
7,66 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Teenage Mutant Ninja TurtlesDie humanoiden Kult-Schildkröten Donatello, Leonardo, Raphael und Michelangelo nehmen, unterstützt von ihrem Mentor Splinter (DANNY WOODBURN), der furchtlosen Journalistin April O’Neil (MEGAN FOX) und dem ehrgeizigen Kameramann Vern Fenwick (WILL ArnettT), den Kampf gegen ihren ultimativen Endgegner auf: Ninja-Meister Shredder (WILLIAM FICHTNER) und seine Fußsoldaten. Ihre wichtigsten Waffen dabei sind nicht nur ihre Ninja-Ausbildung, Nunchucks, Bo Stab und Co., sondern vor allem ihr Witz, ihr stets heldenhafter Einsatz für das Wohl der Menschheit und, nicht zu vergessen, eine tiefe brüderliche Verbundenheit, die die vier zu einem unschlagbaren Team macht. Ob mit Leonardos (PETE PLOSZEK) Führungstalent, Donatellos (JEREMY HOWARD) technisch versiertem Verstand, Michelangelos (NOEL FISHER) energetischem Wesen oder Raphaels (ALAN RITCHSON) stürmischer Emotionalität: Solange die vier Ninjas zusammenhalten, hat kein Gegner eine Chance, gegen sie anzukommen. Doch der martialische Bösewicht Shredder hat einen Plan, der alles ändern könnte … Kaum eine Comicfigur hat es bislang geschafft, sich so tief in den Herzen ganzer Generationen zu verankern, wie die pizzafanatischen Brüder. Regisseur Jonathan Liebesman („Zorn der Titanen“) bringt die vier grünen Helden nun als spektakuläres Live-Action-Abenteuer auf die große Kinoleinwand. Ein mit Spannung erwartetes 3D-Popcorn-Spektakel, das mit neuester CGI-Technologie und der Unterstützung von Mastermind Michael Bay („Transformers“) den Charme und Mut der Turtles in ein hochexplosives Action-Paket verwandelt. Abgerundet wird die Turtles-Power mit der richtigen Prise Humor sowie einem hochkarätigen und bunt gemischten Cast: Heiß, heißer, Megan Fox („Transformers“) spielt die toughe TV-Journalistin April O’Neil, die erfahrenen Comedy-Mimen Whoopi Goldberg („Sister Act“) und Will Arnettt („Jonah Hex“) garantieren kurzweilige Unterhaltung, während William Fichtner („The Dark Knight“) den Fiesling Shredder verkörpert. Unter den Schildkrötenpanzern verstecken sich vier attraktive und aufregende Nachwuchstalente: Alan Ritchson („Die Tribute von Panem“) als Hitzkopf Raphael, Jeremy Howard („Men in Black II“) als Technik-Fan Donatello, Noel Fisher („Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2“) als Witzbold Michelangelo und Pete Ploszek („Parks and Recreation“) als Anführer Leonardo.

Laughing Mad None/e
177,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

She examines the comic televisual and cinematic personae of Dick Gregory, Bill Cosby, Flip Wilson, and Richard Pryor and considers how these figures set the stage for black comedy in the next four decades. She reads Eddie Murphy and Chris Rock as emblematic of the first and second waves of post - civil rights era African American comedy, and she looks at the socio-cultural politics of Whoopi Goldberg's comic persona through the lens of gender and crossover. 'Laughing Mad' also explores how the comedy of Dave Chappelle speaks to and for the post-soul generation. A rigorous analytic analysis, this book interrogates notions of identity, within both the African American community and mainstream popular culture. Written in engaging and accessible prose, it is also a book that will travel from the seminar room, to the barbershop, to the kitchen table, allowing readers to experience the sketches, stand-up, and film comedies with all the laughter they deserve.
