How Afghans Have Adapted to Life After Losing a Limb

We know war causes death and destruction on levels that are difficult to comprehend. But "what is most difficult for us to imagine is not tragedy but the prospect of living in its aftermath."

"It's important to have places to go where we can discover books, because in books we discover new worlds, new ways of being. We especially need that right now." Listen to author Darnell L. Moore talk about his new book NO ASHES IN THE FIRE, a #BNDiscover summer pick: http://spr.ly/6182DiKRA #BNSummerReading Nation Books

No Ashes In The Fire by Darnell L. Moore. From a leading journalist and activist comes a brave, beautifully wrought memoir.

Moore is an award-winning writer, a leading Black Lives Matter activist, and an advocate for justice and liberation. In No Ashes in the Fire, he shares the journey taken by that scared, bullied teenager who not only survived, but found his calling. Moore's transcendence over the myriad forces of repression that faced him is a testament to the grace and care of the people who loved him, and to his hometown, Camden, NJ, scarred and ignored but brimming with life. Moore reminds us that liberation is possible if we commit ourselves to fighting for it, and if we dream and create futures where those who survive on society's edges can thrive.
No Ashes in the Fire is a story of beauty and hope-and an honest reckoning with family, with place, and with what it means to be free.

In this excerpt from his new book, No Ashes in the Fire, Darnell Moore writes on growing up Black and queer in America.

Some call this contraceptive a breakthrough for women. Others say it's dangerous.

Adverse events reported include accounts of devices that broke apart, migrated out of the fallopian tubes or punctured other organs—and reports of pregnancies, miscarriages and stillbirths.

In 2002, the FDA approved a much-heralded permanent contraceptive device called Essure. Why are so many women speaking out against it?
