Down With the King of the South Summary:

Meet Jashae Johnson. She’s well known throughout Miami, but most know her as Giovonni “Trip's” girlfriend and baby mama. They have a ghetto love story. The two of them had been together for almost twenty years. They have a love that most people would ask Jashae just how the hell does she do it? Not because love is hard, but because Trip is in prison serving a life long sentence, for a murder that he committed years ago. Then, you have Toddrick King, known in the streets as “Miami.” Women will pretty much sell their souls to be with a man like Miami. Not only is he a well-known retired boxer, but he’s handsome, rich, and he knows how to treat a woman. Two things are stopping Miami and Jashae from being together, and that’s Jashae’s love for Trip and because Miami and Trip were once friends. Then, we have Mahogany, Jashae's best friend. Such a beautiful woman, with such an ugly soul. Mahogany can literally have any man in the world that she wants, but she’s not too fond of falling in love. Well, that’s until she meets Miami’s cousin, Jabari. Will Jabari be able to change Mahogany’s outlook on love? Does Jabari even want love himself to change Mahogany’s mind on such a thing? Although this is a love story, it’s deep; it’s sad; it’s dark, it’ll make you question why certain things happen in life. For Jashae, one would think that losing her boyfriend to the system was the worst thing that could happen to her, but who would have ever thought that something else would happen in her life that would make that situation seem minor?

Crush Summary:

Jazmin always had the biggest crush on her childhood friend Sean since she could remember. Being that she was the "cute for a fat girl" and "like a little sister" type of girl, Sean never really gave Jazmin much attention. Now that they're older, things have changed. Sean has started seeing her in a different light and now they're caught up in a love affair that Jazmin has been waiting her whole life for. There's just one problem: Sean is married to Jazmin's sister's friend Rayven. To make matters worse, Jazmin has just given birth to Sean's love child. As Jazmin deals with the pain, hurt, and heartbreak of being the secret side chick to Sean, another person has entered the picture. Jah, also another childhood friend, is handsome but can be a little rude, straightforward and temperamental. He's the "bad boy" with a potty mouth that has always been everyone's least favorite; however he's attempting to be a stand-up guy despite his abrasiveness. And he's there for Jazmin in ways that she would have never expected. But Sean isn't happy about it at all. Will Sean sit back and lose his side-piece and love child to Jah, or will he be ready to let the cat out the bag to hold on to Jazmin?

A South Side Love Story Summary:

Tricey, Vic, and Lyric are three friends from the Southside of Chicago fighting in the tumultuous war between finding the one amongst the chaotic sea of Mr. Wrongs. After breaking up with her baby's father, Memphis, Vic is in the arms of one new beau after the next; turning her heartbreak into a life filled with bald-headed h*e shenanigans. Vic's new approach to love terribly clashes with Asa's uncontrollable need for being more than her next sneaky link. However, Vic's refusal to commit doesn't keep Asa's alpha male, street swag from trying desperately to blow up the wall that she has built around her terribly damaged heart. As Vic runs from Asa's attempts to woo her, Tricey has done the unthinkable: fallen in love with her friend-with-benefits. After the heart-rendering endings of her past relationships, Akbar was the ideal replacement. Everything was perfect about him... except for his pregnant wife. After fighting against it, she falls in love and realizes that she needs to walk away from the man that she can't imagine living without. Then enters "Blood" the dope boy ready to sweep her off of her feet. But can she find the courage to walk away from the explosive chemistry between she and Akbar in order to enjoy the life that Blood wants to give her? While Tricey is stuck between a dope boy and her married love, Lyric and Salem are approaching their wedding date. As they prepare to spend the rest of their lives together, Salem is under the impression that he has chosen the perfect wife-to-be. Lyric struggles with this cloak of perfection as she figures out a way to quietly end the affair she's had on the side since the day she met her soon-to-be-husband. This is only the beginning of this Urban Romance, which is filled with love that hurts, betrayals, and feels tragically unsustainable. Packed with a sea of characters that add their own two cents of drama and contribute to the shocking and heartrending end, this love story is of three homegirls, not only falling

Footsteps in the Dark Summary:

Most pop songs are short-lived. They appear suddenly and, if they catch on, seem to be everywhere at once before disappearing again into obscurity. Yet some songs resonate more deeply—often in ways that reflect broader historical and cultural changes. In Footsteps in the Dark, George Lipsitz illuminates these secret meanings, offering imaginative interpretations of a wide range of popular music genres from jazz to salsa to rock. Sweeping changes that only remotely register in official narratives, Lipsitz argues, can appear in vivid relief within popular music, especially when these changes occur outside mainstream white culture. Using a wealth of revealing examples, he discusses such topics as the emergence of an African American techno music subculture in Detroit as a contradictory case of digital capitalism and the prominence of banda, merengue, and salsa music in the 1990s as an expression of changing Mexican, Dominican, and Puerto Rican nationalisms. Approaching race and popular music from another direction, he analyzes the Ken Burns PBS series Jazz as a largely uncritical celebration of American nationalism that obscures the civil rights era’s challenge to racial inequality, and he takes on the infamous campaigns to censor hip-hop and the radical black voice in the early 1990s. Teeming with astute observations and brilliant insights about race and racism, deindustrialization, and urban renewal and their connections to music, Footsteps in the Dark puts forth an alternate history of post–cold war America and shows why in an era given to easy answers and clichd versions of history, pop songs matter more than ever. George Lipsitz is professor of black studies and sociology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Among his many books are Life in the Struggle, Dangerous Crossroads, and American Studies in a Moment of Danger (Minnesota, 2001).

Deception is a dangerous game but Grayson Armstrong didn't agree with the rules. Having endured trauma in his own childhood, honesty went a long way with him.
