BLOG TOUR: Shake What Your Momma Gave U!

The Frederick Douglass High Dancing Divas are the most popular girls at school. Every girl wants to dance like them and be them. The school year is going as planned until the new principal sees their dance routines and calls it vulgar. Believing the way they dance is who there are, so the girls fight back when the principal try to change them. The Divas soon find out the principal is not the only thing standing in their way of making the dreams of come.

Nia, Cammy, Latisha, and Perri are members of the hottest dance squad in Atlanta, Georgia, The Frederick Douglass High Dancing Divas. The girls are on top of the world until the new principal disapproves of their sexy dance routines. Drama at school and at home is threatening to destroy their year. Can the girls overcome their personal problems and take on their city rivals? The girls must fight to keep and find their own self-image on and off the dance floor. It seems the school, their parents, and the whole world are against them, but all they want to do is dance and follow their dreams: Nia wants to go to college and dance, Cammy wants everyone to see her for the talented dancer she really is and not the token white girl on the team, Perri just wants to sing the type of music she wants, and Latisha wants to get over the pain of a horrific incident.

Book Of The Day - From Sagging to Success: The Story of Emery Franklin

Some people, especially young people, sag physically in the way they wear their pants. Others, old and young, sag mentally in the way they think about themselves. Raised in public housing, Emery Franklin sagged not in his clothing but in his thinking. He dreamed of making a living as a fine artist but saw no way out. He searched for the key to success and found it in reading the right books and connecting with positive influences. When he changed the way he thought, his life changed. Now a successful and prolific artist, Emery turns his thoughts, hopes, dreams and visions into paintings. His paintings tell stories. In his 2011 “Crossroads: From Sagging to Success” art series of 15 paintings, he highlights sagging pants and changing mindsets as he takes his viewers on a short journey through African American history and into the life of his main character in the paintings. The main character in many of the paintings (Derrick) is a young man who sags physically for the sake of fashion and mentally because of low self-esteem. Like Emery, he searches for the key to success and finds it in reading. Written by Florence M. Howard, “From Sagging to Success: The Story of Emery Franklin” is a mixture of biography, history and storytelling based on the paintings in his Crossroads series. The book contains 15, 8”x10” full-color prints of paintings by the artist. Readers will be inspired to examine their attitudes and to follow the steps used by Emery in becoming successful. Highlights in the book include an original portrait of President Barack Obama by Emery Franklin and bonus section on black inventors.
