This book is a compilation of five papers published in two journals, Family Systems Forum and Family Systems: A Journal of Natural Systems Thinking in Psychiatry, between 2008 and 2013. These journals are dedicated to exploring the theory of the family developed by Dr. Murray Bowen (1913-1990). Bowen was one of the leaders in the emergence of family systems theory and therapy beginning in the 1950s. Bowen came to understand that much of human behavior is a product of the family unit, and has a function for the family unit. The papers in this volume explore how beliefs - worldviews, philosophies, values, goals, principles, although emerging in an individual brain, can be regarded as a product of the family unit, and have a function for the family unit. Case studies include Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Henry David Thoreau, Walter Inglis Anderson, Robert Lowell and Jean Stafford.

In 1999 a group of white citizens reopened the case to push for a return to neighborhood schools. A federal judge sided with them, finding that the plans initiated in the 1971 ruling were both unnecessary and unconstitutional because they were race-based. Charlotte's journey had come full circle.

On August 28, 1963 hundreds of thousands of demonstrators flocked to the nation's capital for the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous "I Have a Dream" speech. It was Clayborne Carson's first demonstration. A nineteen year old black student from a working-class family in New Mexico, Carson hitched a ride to Washington. Unsure how he would return home, he was nonetheless certain that he wanted to connect with the youthful protesters and community organizers who spearheaded the freedom struggle. Decades later, Coretta Scott King selected Dr. Carson—then a history professor at Stanford University-- to edit the papers of her late husband. In this candid and engrossing memoir, he traces his evolution from political activist to activist scholar. He vividly recalls his involvement in the movement's heyday and in the subsequent turbulent period when King's visionary Dream became real for some and remained unfulfilled for others. He recounts his conversations with key African Americans of the past half century, including Black Power firebrand Stokely Carmichael and dedicated organizers such as Ella Baker and Bob Moses. His description of his long-term relationship with Coretta Scott King sheds new light on her crucial role in preserving and protecting her late husband's legacy. Written from the unique perspective of a renowned scholar, this highly readable account gives readers valuable new insights about the global significance of King's inspiring ideas and his still unfolding legacy

American Masterpieces: Three Centuries of Artistic Genius is a major initiative by the National Endowment for the Arts, chaired by poet Dana Gioia. The project is designed to acquaint Americans with the best of their cultural and artistic legacy. The exhibit, "American Masters of the Mississippi Gulf Coast," is part of that initiative. It is a special collaboration of the NEA, the Mississippi Arts Commission, and numerous art institutions within the state, some as lenders to the exhibition, some as venues for the exhibition. This book, which accompanies the exhibit, presents four artists from the Mississippi Gulf Coast whose work has garnered national attention and acclaim. The work of 19th century Biloxi art potter, George Ohr, has been called a forerunner of modern sculpture. Twentieth century Biloxi artist, Dusti Bonge, was the first modernist painter in Mississippi, and exhibited with the major figures of the Abstract Expressionist movement in America. Richmond Barthe of Bay St. Louis attained the summit of acclaim during the Harlem Renaissance with his classical and sensuous sculpture of the human form. Walter Anderson of Ocean Springs drew specifically on the flora and fauna of the Gulf Coast for his art. The culture of the Coast with its unrestrained spirit and vitality may be the only area in the state in which the four artists honored in this exhibition could have thrived. Each was highly individualistic, some called eccentric. Each was touched by the environment in specific and useful ways. Each seemed to move inexorably and freely toward his/her art under the wide skies of the Mississippi Gulf Coast and its tradition of uninhibited striving. Except for George Ohr, who worked in the 19th century, the other three artists were contemporaries in time and all four shared the history, culture, and natural world of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Its background of many ethnic groups, its proximity to New Orleans, the activities of the waterfront, its spirit as a playground all became influences on their lives and art. This book presents biographies of Ohr, Bonge, Anderson, and Barthe with family photographs and color illustrations of their work.
