The problem of drug use by pregnant women has been widely discussed and both social policy and legislation have been created in an attempt to deal with it.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pages: 24. Chapters: Afeni Shakur, Assata Shakur, Mopreme Shakur, Mutulu Shakur, Tupac Shakur. Excerpt: Assata Olugbala Shakur (born July 16, 1947, as JoAnne Deborah Byron, married name Chesimard) is an African-American activist and escaped convict who was a member of the Black Panther Party (BPP) and Black Liberation Army (BLA). Between 1971 and 1973, Shakur was accused of several crimes and made the subject of a multi-state manhunt. In May 1973 Shakur was involved in a shootout on the New Jersey Turnpike, during which New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster and BLA member Zayd Malik Shakur were killed and Shakur and Trooper James Harper were wounded. Between 1973 and 1977, Shakur was indicted in relation to six other alleged criminal incidents-charged with murder, attempted murder, armed robbery, bank robbery, and kidnapping-resulting in three acquittals and three dismissals. In 1977, she was convicted of the first-degree murder of Foerster and of seven other felonies related to the shootout. Shakur was then incarcerated in several prisons, where her treatment drew criticism from some human rights groups. She escaped from prison in 1979 and has been living in Cuba in political asylum since 1984. Since May 2, 2005, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has classified her as a "domestic terrorist" and offered a $1 million reward for assistance in her capture. Attempts to extradite her have resulted in letters to the Pope and a Congressional resolution. Shakur is the step-aunt of the deceased hip-hop icon Tupac Shakur, the stepson of her brother Mutulu Shakur. Her life has been portrayed in literature, film and song. Shakur was born in Jamaica, Queens, New York City, on July 16, 1947, where she lived for three years with her parents and grandparents, Lula and Frank Hill. After her parents divorced in 1950, she spent most of her...

Hypermasculinity State Violence and Family Well being in Zimbabwe Book Description :

In Hypermasculinity And State Violence In Zimbabwe, Assata Zerai explores the demography of maternal and child health in Southern Africa from an Africana feminist sociological perspective. She presents a framework that considers the ways that nation, race, class, gender, sexuality, globalisation and other dimensions of oppression intersect to impact upon the experiences and agency of individuals and groups with health care and social support in Zimbabwe. Zerai argues that maternal and child health cannot be understood unless political/culutral contexts are considered.

From Collards to Callaloo Book Description :

What would you do if being in love and happily married prevented you from meeting and knowing your only grandchild? From Collards to Callaloo: Poems & Letters to Assata is one woman's answer. From Collards to Callaloo is a passionate and inspiring collection of poems and letters written by a grandmother with southern roots whose lesbian identity has kept her from meeting and knowing her Jamaican-American granddaughter. Inspired by 11 years of absence, a painfully kept secret and the fear of never meeting, From Collards to Callaloo takes readers on a cross cultural journey to healing that's paved with letters to a granddaughter during each stage of her life as a young child, an adolescent and an adult. With each letter and each poem, stellar poet L'Monique King takes on the role of modern day griot as she writes from the heart, sharing provocative and insightful thoughts on life, love and womanhood. Written for the one person who may never read it and the many who need to, From Collards to Callaloo is the light of hope in a world where darkness is the void of not being able to share love, life and history.
