Michael D. Terry (13 June 19722 May 2001) was killed in a traffic accident in 2001. Only 28 when he passed, Michael was talented and fun loving. He loved music and writing. In 2002, Yvonne (his mother), family (two sisters, Toni and Kiwana), and friends discussed the idea of sponsoring a scholarship in Michael’s name. The Michael D. Terry Scholarship Fund (MDTSF) was created in 2002. The amount of the scholarship ranges from $250 to $500. The first scholarships given in 2003 went to students from the School of the Arts in Baltimore.  Beginning in 2005, the MDTSF included other Baltimore City Schools in the application process. Although the primary focus is awarding scholarships to African American males, scholarships have been awarded to three female students and one Caucasian student. In addition, cash awards were given each year to the most improved fifth and 8th grade students at Waverly Elementary Middle School.

African-American Odyssey, The Combined Volume

By Darlene Clark Hine

The African-American Odyssey is a compelling story of agency, survival, struggle and triumph over adversity. The authors highlight what it has meant to be black in America and how African-American history is inseparably woven into the greater context of American history. The text provides accounts of the lives of ordinary men and women alongside those of key African-Americans and the impact they have had on the struggle for equality to illuminate the central place of African-Americans in U.S. history more than any other text. This compendium of resources includes up to 100 most commonly assigned history works like Thomas Paine’s Common Sense, Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle, and Machiavelli’s The Prince. Students can monitor their progress and instructors can monitor the progress of their entire class. Automated grading of quizzes and assignments helps both instructors and students save time and monitor their results throughout the course.

Allah, Liberty, and Love

The Courage to Reconcile Faith and Freedom

By Irshad Manji

In Allah, Liberty and Love, Irshad Manji paves a path for Muslims and non-Muslims to transcend the fears that stop so many of us from living with honest-to-God integrity: the fear of offending others in a multicultural world as well as the fear of questioning our own communities. Since publishing her international bestseller, The Trouble with Islam Today, Manji has moved from anger to aspiration. She shows how any of us can reconcile faith with freedom and thus discover the Allah of liberty and love—the universal God that loves us enough to give us choices and the capacity to make them. Among the most visible Muslim reformers of our era, Manji draws on her experience in the trenches to share stories that are deeply poignant, frequently funny and always revealing about these morally confused times. What prevents young Muslims, even in the West, from expressing their need for religious reinterpretation?
