ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood: A Salute to Trailblazers at the Oscars

by The Editors of Essence

The bold and the beautifulFrom the moment that Hattie McDaniel won Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of Mammy in Gone With the Wind (1939), a new course for African American women in Hollywood was set. Though, for this great achievement, it would be 63 years before another African American woman-Halle Berry-would claim the trophy for Best Actress. Black Women in Hollywood: A Salute to Trailblazers at the Oscars, the new Collector's Edition from ESSENCE, is a visual chronicle of the strides that African American actresses have made in Hollywood. From the early pioneers like Ethel Waters and Juanita Moore to the leading lights of the 70s and 80s, such as Cicely Tyson, Diahann Carroll and Diana Ross, and to the stars that rock the red carpet today, including Taraji P. Henson, Lupita Nyong'o and Viola Davis. We feature the nominees and the winners on-set, on the red carpet and in their own words-including the inspiring acceptance speeches of each of the winners. And of course, the photographs: dozens of pictures showcasing these trailblazers on the red carpet, in the roles that won them nominations, and even relaxing at home. Black Women in Hollywood is both a walk down memory lane and an inspirational reminder: to dream bigger than you could have ever imagined.

TIME Martin Luther King Jr.: His Life and Legacy

by The Editors of TIME

Fifty years after his death, the principles and vision of Martin Luther King Jr. continue to be a guiding light for many leaders and many Americans. In a life cut far too short-he was assassinated at age 39-King left a legacy through his remarkable dedication to nonviolent protest, his clear righteousness and his powerful words. King's "Letter from a Birmingham Jail" that criticized the pace of civil rights justice, his stirring "I Have a Dream" speech at the March on Washington, the march he led from Selma to Montgomery: these were just some of the moments and events that defined his extraordinary life. On the 50th anniversary of that fateful day in Memphis, this new TIME special edition recalls what King accomplished in his time. He lived long enough to win the Nobel Peace Prize-and to shift the course of history.

The Practical Builder: The Classic 18th-Century Handbook (Dover Architecture Ser.)

by William Pain

This 1774 guidebook for English carpenters was one of the earliest "do-it-yourself" manuals ever published. The builders' manuals and pattern books of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries offered carpenters and other construction workers important resources for designs and techniques. Those unable to afford an architect's services could feel confident in the good taste of their residence by selecting designs from a pattern book. Employing elementary arithmetic and geometry, the guide's annotated and meticulously rendered engravings depict cross-sections of chimney-pieces, ceilings, cornices, and other architectural details.William Pain's manual was one of the earliest such works published in the United States. Printed in Philadelphia in 1797, it helped standardize key aspects of Federal architecture and served as a model for construction at George Washington's Mount Vernon home. Reprinted from an original 1774 edition, this is the only available version of a splendid reference for architectural historians and those with an interest in classical architecture.

TIME Coffee: The Culture. The Business. Your Health.

by The Editors of TIME

The Culture. The Business. Your Health.Coffee isn't just a beverage: it's now a part of our culture and has become as ingrained in our lives as food and water. It's been known as "the best part of waking up" and "good to the last drop," and of course there's "but first, coffee!" From that steaming cup in the morning to the afternoon break that helps push us to the end of our days, it is never far from hand. And now the varieties are endless, whether you're purchasing in a store, boutique coffee shop, or making in the office pantry: Whether topped by foam, mixed with a splash of milk, blended with ice and caramel syrup, or knocked back as a shot of espresso, how we take our coffee is as personal as the music we listen to, the books we read, or how we dress.Coffee: The Culture. The Business. Your Health., the new Special Edition from the editors of TIME, brews up a rich blend of everything you'd want to know about where your beans are sourced, how they're roasted to suit a wide variety of palates, and what to buy if you're willing to spend $600 a pound. Coffee is no longer just a dollar drink that you buy in a diner or from a street cart (though those that favor them are very loyal), it can also be a gourmet experience crafted by the hands of baristas who are more artists than bartenders, with consumers willing to pay up to $10 for a single cup. TIME Coffee explores the rise of industry giant Starbucks, the resurgence of café culture, and how essential the coffee shop has become in its form as an office away from the office. We also look at the health benefits of the daily grind: what are the perks of coffee consumption and how much is too much? Let Coffee help unlock the culture and business behind the most American of beverages.

Finding Magic: A Spiritual Memoir

by Sally Quinn

The author, journalist, television commentator, and longtime Washington insider reflects on the spiritual quest that has brought deeper meaning to her life—and kept her grounded within the high-powered political world of Washington, D.C.’s elite—her renowned writing career, her celebrity marriage, and her legendary role as doyenne of the capital’s social scene.In this emotionally involving, illuminating memoir, the legendary Washington Post journalist, and author talks candidly about her life at the white-hot center of power and the surprising spiritual quest that has driven her for more than half a century.While working as a reporter, caring for a learning-disabled son with her husband, longtime Washington Post executive editor Benjamin Bradlee, reigning over the capital’s social scene, and remaining intimately connected with national politics, Sally Quinn yearned to understand what truly made the world—and her life—tick. After years of searching, most of which occurring in the secular capital of the world, she came to realize that the time she spent with friends and family—the evenings of shared hospitality and intimate fellowship—provided spiritual nourishment and that this theme has been woven into all the most important moments of her life. In this spiritual memoir, Quinn speaks frankly about her varied, provocative spiritual experiences—from her Southern family of Presbyterians and psychics, to voodoo lessons from her Baptist nanny, her trials as a hospitalized military kid in Japan as the Korean War begins, to her adventures as a Post reporter and columnist and her experience as one of the first female news anchors on national television; her battles with the Nixon administration, Watergate, and other scandals that have rocked the nation; her courtship and long marriage to one of the most authoritative figures in the media; her role as the capital’s most influential hostess; and her growing fascination with religious issues. This fascination led to her pioneering work in creating the most visited religious site on the web, OnFaith.co, where she reports on the unseen driving force of American life. Throughout this radiant, thoughtful, and surprisingly intimate memoir, Quinn reveals how "it’s all magic"—the many forms of what draws us together and provides meaning to all we do. Her roller coaster and irreverent but surprisingly spiritual story allows us to see how the infinite wonder of God and the values of meaningful conversation, experience, and community are available to us all.Finding Magic includes 16 pages of exclusive photographs.
