Hey Meghana, It's been so long since we made these that I can't remember the details. I think all I did was use Photoshop to add white stroke, then black stroke, over and over to each letter (can't remember the font I used) and save those to send to the fabric printer.

Álbumes ilustrados (clásicos que se recuperan o llegan a España por primera vez) Eric Carle Hay una primera edición española de tres extraordinarios álbumes de Eric Carle, clásicos en otros países desde hace mucho. Con sus característicos colages, el autor compone unas historias magníficas, las dos primeras centradas en pequeños animales y en enseñar distintas cosas a los más pequeños, también amabilidad, y la tercera, enriquecida espectacularmente por varias páginas desplegables en distintos sentidos según lo requiera la escena. “El camaleón camaleónico”. Un camaleón envidioso de las cualidades de los demás animales se va convirtiendo en un animal grande como un oso polar, hermoso como un flamenco, elegante como un zorro, fuerte como un elefante, divertido como una foca... Pero cuando pasa una mosca y tiene hambre estaba hecho un lío y no puede ca-zarla. Así que desea ser él mismo. (Kókinos. Formato pequeño. Cartoné. 10,50 €). “La mariquita gruñona”. Una mariquita irascible se pasa todo el álbum buscando contra quien pelear: una avispa, un escarabajo, una mantis, un gorrión, una langosta, una mofeta, una boa, una hiena, un gorila, un rinoceronte, un elefante, una ballena... ( Kókinos. 42 págs. Formato grande. 14 €). “Papá, por favor, consígueme la luna”. Mónica pide a su padre que le consiga la luna. Su padre va en busca de una escalera muy larga, la coloca en la cumbre de una montaña y sube por ella, coge la luna cuando se hace pe-queña y la baja para su hija. (Kókinos. 37 págs. Formato grande. 16 €). Sibylle von Olfers, “Los niños de las raíces”. Historia en verso de los niños-raíces que, cuando llega la primavera, salen y dan vida a todo y, cuando se acerca el invierno, vuelven bajo tierra. Las ilustraciones modernistas de la ilustradora alemana, una religiosa que fue profesora de arte, sorprenden por su gran naturalidad y por su capacidad tanto para presentar la belleza de la naturaleza como para comunicar un sentido afectuoso al relato. (Ivette Noguera García. 20 págs. Cartoné. 10,22 €). Elsa Beskow, “Los niños del bosque”. Primer libro en español de Elsa Beskow (1874-1953), considerada una especie de Beatrix Potter sueca. La autora publicó varias decenas de álbumes ilustrados entre los que son muy populares algunos sobre seres diminutos tales como Los niños del bosque, un relato semejante al citado de Sibille von Olfers. Y, como él, es interesante por la fecha de su edición, que hace de su autora una de las pioneras de los álbumes ilustrados tal como ahora los entendemos, y por la categoría de sus acuarelas tiernas y suaves, muy narrativas y que muestran niños naturales y encantadores en la línea de sus contemporáneos, el también sueco Carl Larsson o el suizo Ernst Kreidolf. (ING. 32 págs. 12,96 €). Margaret Wise Brown, “Buenas noches luna”. Primera edición en España del álbum más representativo de una de las mejores autoras norteamericanas de libros infantiles, todo un clásico que fue saludado ya cuando apareció como un libro perfecto para los más pequeños. En cada página figura un pareado con el que un conejito, acostado ya en su cama, va saludando y dando las buenas noches a todo lo que ve y también a lo que no ve, a modo de ritual tranquilizador de despedida. Y, según avanza el libro, las ilustraciones que muestran todo el cuarto del protagonista van oscureciéndose lentamente. La sensación de afecto y confianza que transmite la historia debe mucho también al trabajo del ilustrador, que alterna dibujos a tinta con panorámicas a color de acuerdo con una cuidada planificación que busca conseguir la máxima narratividad. (Corimbo. 32 págs. 10,39 €). Gabrielle Vincent, “Un día, un perro”. Recuperación de un álbum sin texto que había sido editado en España en 1985 firmado con el seudónimo de Monique Martin y titulado Había una vez un perro. Un perro es abandonado en una carretera, luego persigue al coche pero lo pierde, más adelante se cruza cuando pasa otro coche y provoca un accidente, luego llega a una ciudad y un hombre lo echa pero un niño lo acoge. Es un relato semejante a otro de Vincent titulado La pequeña marioneta, pero con dibujos a carboncillo más abocetados, definidos en algún lugar como “expresionismo minimalista”: abundan las escenas en las que el perro, dibujado muy pequeño, se ve a lo lejos en la llanura. Es extraordinaria la capacidad que tienen unos dibujos tan sobrios de sugerir soledad y tristeza, y compasión y ternura. (Zendrera Zariquiey. 80 págs. 14,50 €). Dr. Seuss, “El gato garabato” (Altea. 63 págs. 8,50 €), “¡La de cosas que puedes pensar!” (Altea. 46 págs. 8,50 €). Primeras ediciones en España de algunos libros del autor infantil norteamericano más vendido de la historia: “el escritor más genial de los que he conocido” según su editor (el mismo de William Faulkner, para los desconfiados). Sus libros, basados en un uso humorístico e inteligente del lenguaje no tienen la misma gracia en castellano pero, en cualquier caso, son excelentes. La historia del gato revoltoso que convierte una tarde aburrida en horas inolvidables es el contenido de “El gato garabato”. En “¡La de cosas que puedes pensar!” no hay argumento sino una invitación a dejar volar la imaginación y descubrir sus posibilidades. Álbumes ilustrados para pequeños Lauren Chile, “Soy demasiado pequeña para ir al colegio” (Serres. 32 págs. 14 €), “Nunca jamás comeré tomates” (Serres. 32 págs. 13,50 €). Nuevo álbum de unos protagonistas ya conocidos, Juan y su hermana pequeña Tolola. Esta vez Juan va explicando pacientemente a Tolola lo bien que se lo pasará en el colegio. Las eficaces ilustraciones humorísticas de aire pop propias de la ilustradora inglesa añaden esta vez un interesante y muy atractivo recurso para el lector niño: en muchas páginas aparece un amigo invisible, un personaje que aguarda en la puerta o bien ocupa un asiento, pero al que sólo se le ve como al trasluz. En el segundo álbum, Juan, cuenta cómo se las arregla cuando tiene que dar de cenar a su hermanita Tolola y enumera los alimentos que a Tolola no le gustan: zanahorias, guisantes, patatas, champiñones, espaguetis, huevos, salchichas, etc., y, sobre todo, los tomates. Con su estilo habitual -colages, dibujos desmañados, personajes siempre parecidos, tipografía cambiante-, la ilustradora inglesa presenta una historia ordenadamente compuesta, visualmente ingeniosa y con un texto simpático que hará las delicias de los vegetarianos y que puede animar a comer a los reticentes. Saxton Freymann y Joost Elffers, “Vegetal como sientes: Alimentos con sentimientos”. Álbum humorístico que, gráficamente, se puede calificar de genial. Breves textos rimados acompañan distintas fotografías, sobre fondos monocromos, de distintas frutas y verduras talladas con cuchillo y con incrustaciones como frijoles para los ojos y jugo de remolacha para la boca. Unas van aisladas, otras forman una composición de grupo; a veces ocupan una sola página, otras ocupan la doble página. Cada ilustración representa algún estado anímico: confusión, sorpresa, cobardía, malhumor, vergüenza, desconsuelo, cansancio, celos, timidez, etc. (Tuscania. 42 págs. 13,70 €). Michael Foreman, “Hola, Mundo”. Cuando amanece, un osito despierta a un niño para que salga con él a ver el mundo. Van incorporando a su expedición a distintos animales y, después de recorrer lugares varios, suben a una colina para contemplar el panorama. Ilustraciones alegres, compuestas con acuarelas y pastel sobre dibujos a lápiz, con acentos serenos y una cambiante luminosidad, del azul de la mañana al amarillo del mediodía y a las sombras de la tarde, acompañan un texto sencillo. Álbum para compartir que puede ayudar a transmitir a los pequeños el gozo de que haya tantas cosas por descubrir y disfrutar. (Kókinos. 35 págs. 12,52 €). Álbumes ilustrados para más mayores Peter Reynold, “El punto”. Una niña llamada Vashti piensa que no puede dibujar y una profesora consigue que supere su complejo. Dentro de los álbumes que intentan despertar y desplegar la creatividad artística del niño, El punto tiene un lugar destacado por la simpatía y convicción con que su argumento habla, de modo sencillo pero inteligente, del valor que puede acabar teniendo un pequeño impulso de ánimo. Las ilustraciones de línea y acuarela, bien secuenciadas, son dibujos expresivos coloreados. Las expresiones de las figuras reproducen bien los sentimientos de los personajes. (Serres. 30 págs. 12 €). Gabi Swiatkowska, “Me llamo Yoon”. Álbum sobre las dificultades de adaptación a un nuevo país y a un nuevo colegio de una niña coreana llamada Yoon. Ilustraciones con perspectivas sorprendentes y un cierto carácter surrealista, bien compuestas y bien secuenciadas. En ellas se revelan los mundos desconectados en los que vive Yoon al principio y el momento en el que sus barreras internas caen. Álbum de los que logran atrapar los sentimientos de los niños, que se reflejan en las caras de los personajes y que se transmiten a través de la composición y el color de las ilustraciones. El texto, en primera persona, da con el tono justo, sereno y sobrio, como en voz baja, y acierta tanto en lo que dice como en lo que calla. (Juventud. 30 págs. 14,60 €). Peter Sís, “El perro de Madlenka”. Segundo álbum con la misma protagonista. Madlenka quiere que sus padres le regalen un perro y, en su recorrido alrededor de la manzana paseando un perro imaginario, sus vecinos le cuentan la clase de perro que tuvieron cuando eran niños: el panadero señor Gastón, el bombero señor McGregor, el verdulero señor Eduardo, el músico señor Mingus…, cada uno de un diferente lugar del mundo. Como en el álbum anterior, el lector encontrará ilustraciones ricas que contienen sugerencias artísticas y referencias a las culturas evocadas por los distintos personajes. De nuevo, Sís homenajea la riqueza multiétnica de Nueva York y nos hace mirar con agradecimiento la variedad cultural. En una página final aparecen los dibujos y nombres de muchas clases de perros y se indica cuáles pertenecían a cada uno de los personajes del álbum. (Lumen. 38 págs. 14,90 €). Janet Wilson, “El faro: historia de un recuerdo”. Viaje que hacen al faro, a medianoche, Sarah y su padre. Las ilustraciones son óleos clásicos y realistas, normalmente de una página completa o de página y media, pero también con escenas más pequeñas para mostrar algo que se afirma en el texto. La canadiense Janet Wilson no ha intentado “fabricar un álbum” sino “ilustrar una historia” y, aunque su calidad como álbum ilustrado podría ser mayor, la historia en sí misma tiene gancho y encanto: el argumento conecta con sentimientos tanto de los adultos como de los niños y las ilustraciones contribuyen a transmitirlos bien. En particular, es destacable cómo la ilustradora recoge los rasgos faciales de la pequeña Sarah. (Everest. 30 págs. 7,93 €). David Wiesner, “Los tres cerditos”. Interesante versión posmoderna de un cuento clásico, que revela cómo algunos autores de álbumes ilustrados reflexionan sobre las posibilidades de su propio medio y lo “desmontan y vuelven a montar” y juegan a su gusto con las convenciones narrativas y gráficas habituales. La historia comienza como siempre pero los tres cerditos van saliéndose de las páginas y fabrican otra historia pues entran en otros cuentos, y acaban volviendo pero no sin introducir en su relato a un dragón y un gato violinista. Las ilustraciones mezclan dibujo y pintura para revelar en qué plano se desarrolla lo que se cuenta. Con todo, a pesar de la calidad de las ilustraciones y del mérito que tiene como intento, a mi juicio la historia no es especialmente graciosa, salvo algunas escenas como cuando se montan los tres cerditos en un avión de papel que hacen con las páginas del cuento, pero en estos casos lo que resultan simpáticas son más las imágenes que la misma historia. (Juventud. 38 págs. 12,98 €). Armin Greder, “La isla: una historia cotidiana”. Con dibujos a lápiz que copian obras como las pinturas negras de Goya y El grito de Munch, el autor cuenta la historia de un náufrago que alcanza una isla, un pescador que intercede ante los demás para que se le aloje, y su transformación en chivo expiatorio de los males que afligen a la isla. El autor, un suizo afincado muchos años en Australia, acentúa los trazos y los puntos de vista: los hombres malvados son gordos y oscuros y amenazantes, y son vistos desde la perspectiva del náufrago, al que vemos delgado y blanco y desvalido. Como los expresionistas, el autor ha buscado interpelar al lector y hablarle de cómo puede crecer en un grupo humano el rechazo hacia el extraño, de cómo pueden propagarse los rumores y acabar imponiéndose la brutalidad de unos sobre la pasividad de otros. Frente a tanto angelismo pacifista, no viene mal recordar que lo malo no es la violencia sino la injusticia y que a la violencia injusta es necesario hacerle frente. (Lóguez. 36 págs. 13,08 €). Wolf Erlbruch, “El águila que no quería volar”. Un aguilucho que se cría con gallinas, patos y pavos, consigue volar como un águila cuando un sabio, después de varios intentos, lo lleva a un monte alto y lo pone frente a frente al sol. Ilustraciones narrativas, sintéticas y en colores planos, que suelen ocupar las dos terceras partes de la doble página. Cabe discutir si serían mejores unas ilustraciones sin toques humorísticos pero, en cualquier caso, Erlbruch logra condensar con acierto el espíritu de la historia. Aunque puede leerse de modo personal, el ghanés James Aggrey compuso su relato como una llamada de atención a los pueblos africanos pues, se nos dice al final del álbum, en su versión original la narración termina diciendo: “Pueblos de África: Hemos sido creados a imagen y semejanza de Dios, pero hay hombres que nos han llevado a pensar como gallinas y todavía pensamos que somos verdaderas gallinas, pero somos águilas. ¡Abran las alas y emprendan el vuelo!”. (Lóguez. 32 págs. 13,80 €). Narrativa para niños Pedro Antonio Urbina, “Cuentos de mar, osos, tigres y panteras”. Nueve cuentos cortitos. Varios tienen sabor de cuento popular con alguna variante, como Aventura en el mar, El marino y la llave o Perro chino rojo. Otros son, más o menos, episodios de vida ordinaria, como El cargador del muelle; o simples escenas cotidianas un tanto transfiguradas y protagonizadas por hombres o por animales, como Compra y vende, Jardín desierto, Preguntas, Los osos. Algunos van subtitulados con “cuentos para escuchar”, como Compra y vende, Preguntas y El tigre de Kundarí; los dos primeros, quizá los mejores, se apoyan en diálogos vivos, y el tercero es una historia disparatada contada de modo poético y divertido. Las erratas de la edición no hacen justicia ni a la calidad y riqueza de la prosa ni a la categoría de las ilustraciones, de aire modernista. (Palabra. 93 págs. 5,50 €). Miguel Angel Mendo, “¡Cierra la boca!”. Marta es una niña que, por un extraño procedimiento, consigue que todo lo que dice se haga realidad, y que dure algo más cuanto más especifica los detalles de lo que nombra. Después de algunos episodios graciosos volverá la normalidad con ayuda de una amiga. Relato con chispa que intenta mostrar la importancia del diccionario y que, cuando se habla de algo, se adquiere un cierto poder de transformación del entorno. (Alfaguara. 130 págs. 6 €). Julian Press, “Operación Dragón Amarillo y Operación Cetro de oro”. Especie de libros-acertijo protagonizados por la Banda del Regaliz. El autor usa casi al pie de la letra la eficaz fórmula que popularizara su padre, Hans Jürgen Press, en Las aventuras de la Mano Negra, tanto en la estructura de sencillos casos policiacos como en la clase de dibujos tintinescos que usa. Cada capítulo va en la página izquierda y, entre la multitud de detalles que se contienen en la ilustración de la página derecha, hay alguna pista reveladora que los hábiles protagonistas han visto ya: ¿logrará descubrirla el lector antes de seguir leyendo? Los mini-relatos atrapan a los lectores pues lo desafían, le hacen leer con atención, y le impulsan en la lectura hacia delante. (Espasa Calpe. 10,50 €). Michael Morpurgo, “El reino de Kensuke”. En una travesía en yate que hace con sus padres alrededor del mundo, Michael, once años, cae al agua una noche y sus padres no se dan cuenta. Termina en una pequeña isla donde vive Kensuke, un antiguo soldado japonés, desde hace ya cuarenta años, que al principio le ayuda pero a distancia, y luego entabla con él una relación más estrecha en la que Kensuke aprende inglés y Michael supervivencia y más cosas. Relato contado en primera persona por Michael, diez años después de que ocurriera todo, y que se centra especialmente en la evolución de su relación con Kensuke, además de intrigar al lector sobre cómo llegará el rescate. Tal vez, como suele ocurrir en los relatos del género construidos hoy (y ayer), al autor se le nota mucho su deseo de convertir su historia en una lección de amistad, de respeto a la naturaleza, de rechazo a la guerra. (RBA Libros. 155 págs. 12 €). Avi, “Crispín: la cruz de plomo”. 1377, Inglaterra. Crispín, un chico de trece años es perseguido y, en el camino, tropieza con un juglar a cuyo servicio entra. Aprende habilidades y cambia su visión de la vida pero las cosas se complican cuando la persecución se reanuda y aviva. Novela cincuenta del autor norteamericano, representativa de sus cualidades como narrador, y buena muestra de tendencias y rasgos de mucha novela juvenil actual. Comienzo que atrapa, estructura en escenas cortas, diálogos vivos, personajes principales bien definidos. Los misterios del origen de Crispín y de su persecución están bien planteados. Es tópica la personalidad del juglar aunque funcione bien; está mejor conseguido cómo Crispín tiene dudas interiores a lo Huck Finn, pero es dudoso su asimilación tan rápida de tantas cosas. Están bien integradas en la trama la información histórica y las descripciones de ambientes. Los defectos de la novela son característicos: se simplifica la presentación de la Edad Media, se incluyen frases habituales en películas y ficciones de hoy, se dan mensajes a favor de la libertad que parecen sacados de la guerra de Secesión norteamericana. (SM. 252 págs. 6 €). Paloma Bordons, “Sombra”. Sombra es el nombre de un pueblo subyugado por un misterioso Señor a quien nadie ve pero que manda con regularidad a sus Soldados para que lo controlen todo. A través de lo que les ocurre a Nulo y Miaja, dos niños, el pueblo se sacude la opresión. Entre los argumentos de fantasía en ambientes paramedievales que se dirigen a públicos infantiles abundan los que recurren a los acentos humorísticos pues si se intenta dar solidez a un relato así normalmente acaba siendo necesario cambiar de público. Sin embargo, Paloma Bordons consigue dar consistencia y atractivo a su relato gracias al acierto en la elección de nombres y apelativos que a la vez hacen gracia y comunican extrañeza, y debido a que la narración está bien llevada e interesa por sí misma y por los significados que se adivinan detrás. En particular, se remite al lector inmediatamente a situaciones que ve a su alrededor cuando se habla del “extravío”, una planta que todos toman para sentirse mejor. Sin embargo, debe decirse que la intriga no se resuelve de modo lucido pues los perfiles del malvado Señor se desvanecen en nada. (SM. 188 págs. 6,20 €).

In this charming romantic comedy perfect for fans of Meg Cabot and Sophie Kinsella, critically acclaimed author Teri Wilson shows us that sometimes being pushed out of your comfort zone leads you to the ultimate prize. 

          Charlotte Gorman loves her job as an elementary school librarian, and is content to experience life through the pages of her books. Which couldn’t be more opposite from her identical twin sister. Ginny, an Instagram-famous beauty pageant contestant, has been chasing a crown since she was old enough to enunciate the words world peace, and she’s not giving up until she gets the title of Miss American Treasure. And Ginny’s refusing to do it alone this time.    
She drags Charlotte to the pageant as a good luck charm, but the winning plan quickly goes awry when Ginny has a terrible, face-altering allergic reaction the night before the pageant, and Charlotte suddenly finds herself in a switcheroo the twins haven’t successfully pulled off in decades.       
Woefully unprepared for the glittery world of hair extensions, false eyelashes, and push-up bras, Charlotte is mortified at every unstable step in her sky-high stilettos. But as she discovers there’s more to her fellow contestants than just wanting a sparkly crown, Charlotte realizes she has a whole new motivation for winning.

THE ACCIDENTAL BEAUTY QUEEN is available HERE.

Now the excerpt for your reading pleasure.

My sister has always been the pretty one. The Jane Bennet to my Elizabeth, the Meg March to my Jo.
It’s been this way for so long that I’ve never questioned it. It’s never even bothered me much. It just is.

Ginny is my sister, and I love her, no matter how different our lives are. And trust me, they’re about as opposite as you can imagine. But the chasm between our worlds has never been quite so glaringly obvious as it is now, because instead of restocking books on their respective shelves, I’m standing in an elevator at the posh Huntington Spa Resort in Orlando, Florida, on the first Monday afternoon of summer.
For starters, at five feet seven, I’m by far the shortest person of the half dozen or so on board. This is a rarity for me. As an elementary school librarian, I’m accustomed to towering over people for the majority of my waking hours. I’m also used to sitting in tiny chairs and using tiny, blunt-edged scissors, but that’s beside the point. Five feet seven isn’t short. . . .

                Unless you’re riding an elevator packed with beauty queens.

                I don’t know what I expected when I signed on to spend a week cheering for my sister at the Miss American Treasure pageant, but it wasn’t this. The preliminary competition doesn’t start for another two days, so why are they all wearing crowns and sashes already? And what is going on with their shoes?

                Beauty pageant contestants wear heels. I know this, obviously. I mean, I’ve seen Miss Congeniality at least twenty times over the years, thanks to Ginny. But these are beyond high heels. Gracie Lou Freebush wouldn’t have lasted a minute in them.

                No offense to Sandra Bullock. I’m just saying.

I tighten my grip on the handle of my suitcase, suddenly extremely conscious of the state of my hair. Orlando is one of the most humid places on earth, and the half hour ride on the airport shuttle was not kind. For once, I actually feel sorry for Ginny. It’s one thing to be expected to look perfect onstage, but hotel elevators should be a safe space. I, for one, plan to be roaming the halls in a spa bathrobe and complimentary slippers en route to the vending machine for the majority of my stay.

But to each her own.

                Besides, Ginny chose this life, just as surely as I chose mine. She also gets paid more for one sponsored Instagram post than I make in a week, and when I remember this, I keep my sympathy in check.
The elevator comes to a stop on the fifth floor, which has clearly been reserved for the pageant, because we all disembark in a glamorous, glittering herd.

Myself being the exception.

No one seems to notice my presence, though. The Hogwarts T-shirt I’m wearing might as well be an invisibility cloak. Fine. I’m not here to make friends. I’m here for the chance to stay in Ginny’s luxury hotel room for a week, for free, and completely nerd out at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

I’m also here for moral support, of course. I plan on being at every single pageant event, cheering like a maniac while inwardly cringing in horror at the very thought of prancing around in only a tiny swimsuit and a crown. But since the competition doesn’t start until 5:00 p.m., that leaves my mornings and afternoons free to hit up the theme park. I’ve emptied my paltry savings account and invested in a five-day unlimited pass. Bring on the butter beer.

But first, I must locate our room amid a sea of glitz and sparkle. According to the text Ginny sent when I landed, we’re in 511. All of my elevator pals are in rooms along the same stretch of corridor. Half the doors on the floor have hangtags on the knobs that read, Do not disturb! This Miss American Treasure contestant needs her beauty sleep!

I roll my eyes mightily.

Dangling from the knob of room 511 is one such tag, but I highly doubt Ginny is actually sleeping because I can hear the television booming through the door. I knock extra hard so she can hear me above the din of whatever reality show she’s probably watching.

Just please God don’t let it be the Kardashians.

An explosion of barks answers my knock. I take a deep breath. I’ve somehow forgotten all about my sister’s French bulldog mix, Buttercup. Ginny adopted her a month ago as part of her “platform.” I’m not sure exactly what that means. She’s a pageant queen, not a politician. But according to approximately five million posts on Ginny’s Instagram, she volunteers regularly at her local shelter in support of her animal rescue policy.

If memory serves, last year her platform was anti-bullying. But so many other contestants on the pageant circuit had already thrown themselves into the anti-bullying movement that she felt pressured to switch to something else. In other words, she got bullied into giving up her anti-bullying platform. Oh, the irony.

The door to the hotel room swings open, and Ginny is standing there in a white spa bathrobe with her hair piled on top of her head in a messy-yet-artful twist. She’s got one of those serum-soaked sheet masks stuck to her face—the kind that make regular people look like something straight out of a bad horror movie.

                Except Ginny isn’t a regular person. So instead she looks like Gwyneth Paltrow enjoying a quiet day of self-care.

“Charlotte, you’re here!”

“Yep. My flight was right on time.” Thank God. I’m ready to make the most out of day one on my unlimited pass.

“Come on in.” She holds the door open wider.

The room is a double, with side-by-side queen beds and a balcony overlooking a pool flanked by umbrella-covered lounge chairs, a tiki bar, and two perfectly symmetrical rows of palm trees swaying in the balmy Florida breeze. Any spare moments I have this week that don’t include Harry Potter will be spent right there, with my feet up and a piña colada in hand. It’s been so long since I’ve taken an actual vacation that the mental picture I’ve just conjured nearly makes me weep.

“This is gorgeous. Ginny, thanks again for inviting me.”

“Are you kidding? I’m so glad you’re here. Dad and Susan aren’t coming until the finals.” Her smile falters. Behind the face mask, I can see her full lips tip into a frown.

I know exactly what she’s thinking. “You’ll make the finals. I know you will. You’re a shoo-in for the top twenty.”

Ginny always makes the finals. She’s up onstage every year alongside the winner and the runners-up. She’s just never managed to crack the top five.

“This year will be different,” I assure her.

She nods. “It has to be.”

As much as I hate to see my sister devoting her life to chasing a silly crown, and even though I positively loathe the pageant scene, my heart gives a little tug. Sometimes I forget why she got started in all of this. But every once in a while, when Ginny’s composure slips, I remember that this is her way of feeling connected to the mother we barely knew. The crushing sense of loss that inevitably follows always seems to catch me off guard. It’s in those moments— moments like this one—that I understand her dream.
I paste a smile on my face. “It will. I promise.”

I have no right to make that kind of promise. After all, I’m not judging this thing.

Truly, why would anyone want that job?

But it’s so rare to see my sister like this that I can’t stop myself. She’s always been the poster child for confidence.

Which just goes to show how much this particular pageant means to her. More than all the others combined.

“You’re right.” She nods with renewed vigor. “Of course I’ll make the finals. This is my year.”

“Definitely.” Pep talk over for now, I head toward the bed on the far side of the room—the one that’s still neatly made and not covered in anything bedazzled.

                Every item on Ginny’s bed shines like a disco ball, including her official Miss American Treasure tote bag. I’m beginning to understand why she uses one of those sleepmask things like Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I might need to invest in one myself.

As I cross the room, Buttercup launches herself at my wheeled suitcase, growling and nipping at it as it drags behind me. By the time I’m within a foot of my bed, she’s fully attached herself to it and I’m hauling both luggage and bulldog.

“Is this normal behavior?” I ask. It can’t be, can it?

Ginny waves a dismissive hand.

I give Buttercup a little nudge with the toe of my Adidas sneaker. She backs away, peering up at me with her bulgy little eyes. They almost seem to point in two different directions. Like plastic googly eyes.

We stare each other down for a second, and then she resumes her attack on my luggage.

“Is she always so”—I pause, struggling for an appropriate adjective—“headstrong?”

Buttercup and I have never been properly introduced. I only know her via Ginny’s Instagram, where she’s usually doing something less destructive and far more adorable.

“Buttercup is shy,” Ginny says by way of explanation.

I look down at the snarling dog. “Sorry, I’m not getting shy here.”

                “You’re stressing her out. She’s not used to strangers and new experiences. She’s a rescue dog, remember? The poor thing sat in the shelter for four months before I adopted her.”

Ginny checks the position of her sheet mask in the large mirror over the bathroom counter. It’s a double vanity, theoretically big enough for both of us. But Ginny’s massive amount of toiletries take up the entire space. “Did you know that seven million dogs and cats enter shelters every year, and half of them end up being euthanized?”

I did not know that, and it’s a horrible, horrible statistic. But her canned delivery prevents me from absorbing the news with the proper level of emotion.

She’s slipped into pageant mode. She’s rattling off more devastating facts and figures about homeless pets, all the while posing with her hand pressed to her heart and her head tilted just so.

I glance at Buttercup. Something tells me she’s heard the speech before.

“Maybe less euthanasia talk in front of the rescue dog?” I suggest. No wonder the poor thing is stressed.

“Oh my God.” Ginny blinks. “Do you think she understands?”

“I have no idea, but why take the chance?” Besides, I can’t handle Ginny’s platform-level intensity right now. I’ve been up since 4:00 a.m.

                “I suppose you’re right.” Ginny scoops Buttercup into her arms.

I take advantage of the cease-fire, lift my suitcase onto the bed, and remove my things, paltry in comparison to the vast wardrobe Ginny has stuffed into the closet and all but one of the dresser drawers. Fortunately, I travel light.

Clotheswise, anyway. Beneath the layers of jeans and T-shirts, four hardback novels line the bottom of my bag. I remove all four and arrange them in a nice, neat stack atop the nightstand closest to my bed.

When I look up, Ginny’s shaking her head. “Are you sure you brought enough reading material?”

“Don’t judge. I’m on vacation, remember?”

“Exactly. You’re a librarian. Your vacation should be book-free.” Ginny makes a zero sign with one of her perfectly manicured hands.

“How are we even related?” It’s not the first time I’ve asked that question, and I know with every fiber of my being that Ginny wonders the same thing sometimes.

How could she not?

“Before you dive into one of those, can you take Buttercup for a quick walk?” She grabs a Barbie-pink leash from her nightstand. And—surprise!—it’s heavily bedazzled. “Pretty please.”

“What? Why me?” My gaze flits toward Buttercup, who’s now positioned on Ginny’s pillow with her plump rear facing me. “She doesn’t even like me. Stranger danger and all that.”

Ginny rolls her eyes. “Stranger danger? You spend too much time with little kids.”

True. She dragged me to yoga once, and I kept referring to easy pose as crisscross applesauce.

Still, Buttercup doesn’t seem any more thrilled by the idea than I am. Also, I’ve already begun typing the address of the theme park into the Uber app on my phone. I’m supposed to be dodging a fire-breathing dragon in Diagon Alley right now, not walking a petulant French bulldog.

“I was kind of hoping to head over to Harry Potter World so I could be back in time for us to have an early dinner. Don’t you have pageant stuff today?” I’m pretty sure she has a date with some spray tanner this afternoon. Her skin tone matches mine right now, and I know from experience that Ginny is usually at least four shades closer to orange when there’s a pageant on the horizon.

“Yes, and of course you can head right over there just as soon as you walk Buttercup. She hasn’t been out since early this morning. I can’t do it—I’m not allowed to leave the room without my sash on.”

I blink. “What?”

“Contestants can’t leave their hotel rooms unless they’re pageant-ready. Outside of this room, I have to wear my sash at all times.”

                I don’t even know what to say, but suddenly the army of beauty queens from the elevator makes more sense. “That’s crazypants. It’s like you’re some kind of pageant hostage. Put your sash on, and take her out yourself.”

Ginny sighs. “Dramatic much? This isn’t some tiny regional pageant. Miss American Treasure is the big time. She’s a role model. You know that.”

I do. I probably know more about that than any of those chattering elevator girls.

“I can’t go out there like this,” she says.

“Fine.” I take the leash from her hands. She’s clearly in no condition to leave the room, although I would pay money to see an Instagram post of Ginny wearing the sash and her sheet mask at the same time.

“Thank you.” Her slender shoulders sag with relief. “I owe you one. We’ll have a great dinner tonight, I promise. It’ll be just like old times.”

Old times?

I don’t believe her for a minute. When we were kids, our favorite dinners included sloppy joes and macaroni and cheese. I can’t remember the last time I saw a carb cross Ginny’s lips.

“Come on, Buttercup,” I mutter.

The portly little dog growls the entire time I’m attaching her leash to her sparkly pink collar. This should be lovely.

“We’ll be right back.” I cast a glance over my shoulder as I lead Buttercup out the door, and Ginny catches my gaze in the mirror.

She gives me a little wave. I wave back, and for a moment, I go still. Rooted to the spot. Ginny’s sheet mask is gone, and her face is bare. Clean. It’s been a while since I’ve seen her makeup-free. Without the airbrushed foundation, the contouring and highlighting, the carefully lined lips and the double layers of false eyelashes, she looks a lot like me.

She looks exactly like me, actually. Same nose. Same eyes. Same heart-shaped face.

Same DNA.

Because even though my sister has always been the pretty one, the beauty queen—the Jane Bennet to my Elizabeth, the Meg March to my Jo—she’s also my twin.

Giornata mondiale contro la schiavitù, 10 libri da leggere

MILANO - Capire la schiavitù attraverso i libri. Il 2 dicembre in tutto il mondo si celebra la giornata mondiale contro la schiavitù. È stata scelta questa data per ricordare il giorno del 1949 nel quale l'Assemblea generale Onu approvò la Convenzione sulla soppressione del traffico di persone e lo sfruttamento della prostituzione altrui. Molti possono pensare che la schiavitù sia un fenomeno superato, ma le cose stanno in tutt'altro modo, e non solo nei paesi in via di sviluppo o nei regimi dittatoriali. In questo giorno particolare, vogliamo proporvi alcuni consigli di lettura, romanzi di autori molto diversi fra loro, che raccontano periodi, storie, forme di schiavitù anche molto differenti l'una dall'altra. Dai Caraibi di Isabel Allende al libro che ha inaugurato il genere, “La capanna dello Zio Tom” di Harriet Beecher Stowe. Dieci romanzi, dieci momenti di riflessione e di crescita.

.

LA CAPANNA DELLO ZIO TOM di Harriet Beecher Stowe

Arthur Shelby, possidente gentile di una grande piantagione in America, decide di vendere il vecchio zio Tom, generoso schiavo nero a cui è molto affezionato, a Haley, feroce mercante di schiavi. Tom non può che accettare, ma il futuro potrebbe avere in serbo un destino diverso per lui. Il libro, che sosteneva le tesi abolizioniste, divenne in breve tempo un best-seller del XIX secolo (secondo per numero di vendite solo alla Bibbia). Per molti critici ha avuto anche un ruolo importante nell'alimentare la causa antischiavista, tanto che quando Abraham Lincoln incontrò l'autrice all'inizio della guerra civile americana dichiarò: “Allora questa è la piccola signora che ha scatenato questa grande guerra”.

.

L'ISOLA SOTTO IL MARE di Isabel Allende

La storia della schiava nera Zarité Sedella, soprannominata Teté, si svolge tra i Caraibi e la Lousiana dal 1770 al 1810. Dopo vicissitudini, soprusi e violenze, che portano il lettore a vivere in prima persona tutti i tormenti della vita in schiavitù, alla fine la coraggiosa donna arriverà a conquistare la propria libertà. Il romanzo non solo mostra senza filtri o abbellimenti la vita degli schiavi, ma porta anche a contatto con la mentalità dei padroni, dei bianchi. Sono proprio le idee di questi personaggi quelle che lasciano chi legge più sbigottito. E pensare che questo fenomeno non è passato, ma sono ancora tantissime le persone che vivono una condizione del genere.

.

LA SCHIAVA BAMBINA di Diaryatou Bah

Il matrimonio per lei non è altro che una prigione dove la sua infanzia si è spezzata, una gabbia in cui l'hanno costretta e dove la sua volontà è annientata, stritolata dalle violenze quotidiane che suo marito le infligge. Ma Diaryatou ha trovato il coraggio di ribellarsi. Un nuovo doloroso sguardo sulla condizione femminile. Perché la schiavitù non è solo quella del passato. È anche una condizione che vivono donne, uomini e bambini in tutto il mondo.

.

AMATISSIMA di Toni Morrison

Il tragico percorso di Sethe, indomabile donna nera all'epoca della guerra civile americana, per la conquista della libertà. Attraverso la schiavitù, l'amore materno e il peso di un indicibile segreto.

.

RADICI di Alex Haley

Premio Bancarella 1978. Nella seconda metà del Settecento il giovane Kunta Kinte viene strappato dal suo villaggio africano e portato in America come schiavo. La sua vita cambierà, come quella dei suoi discendenti: Bell, Kizzy, Chicken George e tutti gli altri, fino a giungere ad Alex Haley, l'autore di queste pagine.

.

SCHIAVA di Mende Nazer

Sudan. All'età di dodici anni Mende Nazer viene catturata dalla milizia araba durante un brutale assalto. Deportata nella capitale Khartoum, la ragazzina vive come schiava, sfruttata, umiliata e picchiata. Nel 2000 la ricca famiglia araba di cui è la "yenit", la "ragazza", la serva, decide di venderla a dei parenti che vivono a Londra. Schiava nella casa di un diplomatico dell'ambasciata sudanese a Londra, la donna riesce finalmente a scappare e, con l'aiuto di un giornalista, a raccontare la sua storia.

.

THE HELP di Kathryn Stockett

È l'estate del 1962 quando Eugenia "Skeeter" Phelan torna a vivere in famiglia a Jackson, in Mississippi, dopo aver frequentato l'università lontano da casa. Skeeter è molto diversa dalle sue amiche di un tempo, già sposate e perfettamente inserite in un modello di vita borghese, e sogna in segreto di diventare scrittrice. Aibileen è una domestica di colore. Saggia e materna, ha allevato amorevolmente uno dopo l'altro diciassette bambini bianchi, facendo le veci delle loro madri spesso assenti. Ma il destino è stato crudele con lei, portandole via il suo unico figlio. Minny è la sua migliore amica. Il profondo Sud degli Stati Uniti fa da cornice a questa opera prima che ruota intorno ai sentimenti, all'amicizia e alla forza che può scaturire dal sostegno reciproco.

.

 

MEMORIE DI UNO SCHIAVO FUGGIASCO di Frederick Douglass

L'autobiografia di Frederick Douglass, scritta nel 1845, costituisce la prima e fondamentale descrizione della schiavitù e degli schiavisti narrata da un nero, ed è stata uno dei punti di partenza del movimento abolizionista. Asciutte e vibranti, queste memorie di un grande intellettuale nero si leggono oggi come un testo di freschezza sorprendente. Il protagonista ci appare un 'picaro' deciso a non farsi mettere sotto i piedi da nessuno, buoni o cattivi che siano i suoi padroni del momento. La sua abilità di sopravvivenza, che ridicolizza il mondo bianco a cui Douglass rivolge uno sguardo irriverente, genera un moto irresistibile di simpatia che fa di questo prezioso, piccolo libro un classico della letteratura americana. Il volume è introdotto da Alessandro Portelli, uno dei più noti americanisti e studiosi della cultura afroamericana. In appendice il più celebre discorso del leader nero, pronunciato a Rochester (N. Y.) il 5 luglio 1852.

.

LA COSTA DEGLI SCHIAVI di Thorkild Hansen

La Danimarca fu il primo paese ad abolire il traffico degli schiavi. Ma quel traffico continuerà per decenni dopo l'abolizione ufficiale, e nessuno schiavo ha mai raccontato la sua storia: per dar voce a quelle migliaia di esseri umani privati della libertà e trascinati dall'altra parte dell'oceano. L'autore va a cercare le tracce dei loro passi nella Guinea danese, l'attuale Ghana, lungo le rive del Volta, tra le rovine dei forti che dominavano con le loro mura bianche quella costa bordata di palme e battuta dalla risacca. E come guida si serve di diari, lettere, documenti lasciati da sette "testimoni oculari" che si sono succeduti nel corso di due secoli tra quelle mura: un tenente, due sacerdoti, un mercante, un medico, un contabile e un governatore.

 

LO SCHIAVO DI ROMA di Steven Saylor

Nel 72 a.C. Roma è alle corde, ripetutamente sconfitta da un esercito che non proviene dalle barbare lande del Nord né dalle terre nemiche dell'Asia, bensì dalla stessa penisola. È l'esercito di Spartaco, che, coi suoi schiavi ribelli, sta mettendo a ferro e fuoco la Campania e il sud dell'Italia. E proprio a due schiavi in fuga da una villa nei pressi di Pozzuoli viene attribuito l'omicidio di Lucio Licinio, cugino del potente Marco Licinio Crasso. Il cadavere, sfigurato, è stato rinvenuto nell'atrium; accanto al corpo c'è soltanto un lembo di mantello intriso di sangue e sei lettere incise nel pavimento di marmo: SPARTA.

What Makes Best Black And White Tattoo Artist In Toronto So Addictive That You Never Want To Miss One? | best black and white tattoo artist in toronto

I have six tattoos. Each one represents a allotment of who I am, or was.

Dave – Tattoo Artist at The Ace and Sword Tattoo Parlour – best black and white tattoo artist in toronto | best black and white tattoo artist in toronto

My first, a accord assurance on my hip I got aback I was 17, memorializes a time aback I articular acutely with the flower-power movement of the backward 1960s. It was additionally my bashful protest, a claimed admonishment of the brutalities of war and imperialism. And I anticipation it was cute.

My best contempo piece, a bisected sleeve on my appropriate acquaint I got in 2015, pays admiration to my family. With Jamaica’s civic bird and annual on the central of my arm and the atramentous brilliant of the Ghanaian banderole forth with a 17th-century apprehension fabricated by the association of my benevolent birth on the back, I feel acutely affiliated to my roots and to ancestors of ancestors afar by oceans or death.

As an introvert, I’m not generally accessible about my claimed history and interests, so my tattoos acquiesce me to allotment $.25 and pieces of myself. For bigger or worse, tattoos are the accent with which abounding of us acquaint the adventure of our lives. But for abounding bodies of colour, abnormally those of us who acquire darker skin, these beheld belief abide untold, back accessing this accent of self-expression, compassionate and affiliation is not calmly done.

“Some tattooists don’t appetite to [work on bistered skin],” says Cuban-born boom artisan Lorena Lorenzo (@indigoartattoos). “I’ve asked artists in the accomplished and they’ll say, ‘You can’t absolutely see it’ or ‘I can’t do nice work.’”

Despite the cool of boom shops in Toronto and a growing absorption in accepting inked, boom artists who are abreast about or alike accommodating to assignment on darker pigments are attenuate due to a accepted delusion that acceptable pieces can’t be done on darker skin.

“It’s an advancing average that anybody abides by,” says artisan Thomarya “Tee” Fergus (@iamnattee). “The darker your skin, there ability be some things you won’t be able to get congenital in a piece, but it doesn’t beggarly you acquire to get a bad tattoo. It’s aloof about alive with the skin.”

Fergus’s career in tattooing began 10 years ago. She has back acquired a acceptability for her beheld ability and boom work, and her name is amid the best broadcast by associates of this city’s Atramentous association in chase of accomplished boom artists.

“First and foremost, I’m actuality for bodies of colour. I’d adulation added bodies of colour to apperceive that [Black tattooists] abide and that I’m actuality for us, aloof to appearance we can do a lot of the things that we’ve been told we couldn’t, like style-wise and the blazon of tattoos we get,” she says. “Some [artists] are abashed to acquire us and acquire that we too can airing about with these admirable adornments on our skin. We can get some absolutely alarming work. We don’t acquire to achieve for shit.”

When Brittany Randell (@HumbleBeeTattoo) grew annoyed of designing tattoos for added artists, she absitively to aces up a apparatus herself. But clashing Fergus’s experience, Randell says accepting an apprenticeship didn’t appear accessible – an affair she attributes, in part, to actuality a Atramentous woman in a white, male-dominated industry. She credits the abutment of added women of colour for her growing success. Women like herself, she says, who are generally overlooked.

The careers of celebrity tattooists Miryam Lumpini and Richard “Made Rich” Parker whose portfolios affection beauteous pieces abounding with intricate capacity and affluence of colour on audience with darker bark acquire garnered a ample online afterward and becoming them acclaimed audience and appearances on absoluteness shows, attesting to the ample beginning bazaar of Atramentous bodies of colour who are absorbed in accepting tattooed by artists who accept their needs. Despite their success, bounded markets are apathetic to respond.

“I anticipate a lot of artists aren’t necessarily accommodating to go added and apprentice how to boom darker pigments,” Randell says.

Lorenzo, a boom artisan at Atramentous Line Studios who has formed in the industry for eight years, agrees. She says the abhorrence of boom artists to assignment on darker bark tones boils bottomward to a abridgement of training.

“A acceptable boom artisan should be able to do all kinds of [skin tones]. Aback aback I was accomplishing my apprenticeship, I was absolutely advantageous to assignment with artists who gave me that training,” she explains. “You aloof acquire to amusement the bark in a altered way. Acquisition the appropriate pigment, acquisition a nice architecture that will clothing the applicant and acquisition the appropriate concepts.”

          Evil Spirits, Fire and Lions Haunt me – Yahoo Boy Cries out      Cache   Translate Page      
A Yahoo boy in Ghana has cried out for help as he claimed that evil spirits, fire and lions haunt him after his attempt to get rich quick through the fetish means.
According to him, his love to get rich at all cost took him to a spiritualist who claimed to have powers to double his money and make him rich quickly.

Though he adhered to the terms as spelt out by the spiritualist, the money never came and he has been left to battle with evil spirits who have been tormenting his life ever since.
Narrating his story on GHOne TV News, the 27-year-old (name withheld) disclosed that he had traveled abroad to seek greener pastures but it failed.
Upon his return, there was so much pressure on him to make money and he thus decided to turn to a spiritualist for help.
“The spiritualist requested for GHC 1,500 and placed it in a box and [he] was reciting some incantations whiles pushing the box. He also gave me some powder and asked me to sprinkle it whiles he was saying the incantations.
After all this, I realized lots of money in the box and he told me I had to offer a sacrifice before I could use the money. He later said the sacrifice was worth GHC 2,500 and I have to provide it within two days. I complained to him that the initial money I gave to him was lent to me by a friend and that I couldn’t afford such money but he insisted,” he revealed.
Curiously, the troubled young man did not get the money the money he was promised but has had to live in fear because he feels like he is being haunted.

“The spiritualist also asked me to buy a pot, egg, bag and padlock and he will put the money in the pot for me and that the money will be okay for me to use after some few months.


“Since the day I brought the pot home, I do not feel free. I am being haunted and I can’t sleep till the next morning. It is always like I am being haunted by human beings, lions and fire. They appear physically and I don’t know what to do,” he stated.

Nkrumah’s All Africa People’s Conference: The Zimbabwean Factor
Brooks Marmon

This December marks the 60th anniversary of the All African People’s Conference (AAPC) in Accra, Ghana. The nearly weeklong event in 1958 convened some 200 people representing 60 organisations from 27 countries, including prominent pan-African personalities like Patrice Lumumba and Tom Mboya. It marked a decisive shift in the organisation of pan-Africanist conferences from Europe to Africa and on the eve of the independence of many of the still colonised territories on the continent. It constitutes a key marker in the consolidation of Kwame Nkrumah’s image as a pan -African icon.

The initial impact of the AAPC was, however, much more than symbolic. An examination of the surge of political action in colonial Zimbabwe (then known as Southern Rhodesia) following the conference reveals the extent to which the AAPC contributed to deepening the liberation struggle in one of the African colonies with the strongest presence of white settlers.

Two Zimbabweans attended the AAPC conference – Joshua Nkomo, a major figure in the nationalist struggle who subsequently came to be known as “father Zimbabwe” and Paul Mushonga, who articulated a commitment to pan-African socialism but passed away early in the struggle in 1962.

Nkomo was named to the steering committee of the AAPC – attendance at its subsequent meetings across the continent enabled him to develop a range of important international contacts, which contributed to breaking the isolation the Rhodesian authorities sought to impose on the movement he led.

However, the impact of the AAPC on Zimbabwe was felt much more directly in the British colony as well.

On the side-lines of the conference, the delegates from Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Malawi (then known as Northern Rhodesia and Nyasaland, respectively) which were all linked at the time in the Central African Federation, held a number of meetings and resolved that as neighbours linked under a white dominated political structure, they would increase their cooperation to push for self-determination.

Returning from Accra, H. Kamuzu Banda, leader of the liberation struggle in Malawi, transited overnight in Zimbabwe. He lodged with Mushonga and gave a blistering speech at a public meeting convened by the Zimbabwean nationalists. The speech was viewed by the settler authorities as being so incendiary, that Banda was subsequently banned from entering the colony.

In the weeks following the conclusion of the AAPC, the Southern Rhodesian government would ban several additional individuals from Malawi and Zambia from entering the colony in a bid to undermine transnational links between the liberation movements in the adjacent territories.

The meeting in Accra so unsettled the Rhodesian authorities, that on several occasions in parliament in 1959, it was discussed if legislation should be passed that would specifically ban the AAPC itself, or any political movement emanating from Ghana, from operating in Southern Rhodesia. A May 1959 government memorandum identified Ghana as the number one external threat to the security of the Central African Federation.

It was not only top government officials who were threatened by the new militancy stirred by the AAPC. Weeks after the Accra conference, a private Rhodesian citizen announced the formation of a “European National Congress” in a bid to halt the objectives of the AAPC in Southern Rhodesia.

The hysteria from the public and the increasing attention that Ghana as an agent of African liberation was receiving across the Federation spurred the government to take action. Dual states of emergency were declared in Zimbabwe and Malawi in late February and early March of 1959 and hundreds of nationalists were detained and the two main political parties in each territory were outlawed.

The fallout from this act ushered in a new stage of the liberation struggle and greatly increased support from the masses.

The impact of the AAPC was significant and extended far beyond the borders of Ghana. In convening such a diverse array of Africans, on African soil, Nkrumah struck a blow against the prevailing colonial status quo. As the anxious actions of the Rhodesian officials showed, the times were changing.
