A pirate crew led by the dashing Geoffrey Pistol launches a daring mutiny, stealing away in the night. Captain Lynch awakes to find his first mate gone along with his precious treasure map and vows to chase the mutineers to the gates of Hades. As Pistol navigates a stolen vessel through a treacherous storm, a strange “Time Machine” mechanism below deck is activated and the ship disappears in a flash of swirling, blue energy. The bewildered crew awakes on the shore of the modern-day seaside town Pirate’s Cove, where they are mistaken for drunken actors. A group of four kids Josh, Brigitte, Chip and Hedge find the pirate’s treasure map and use high-tech gadgetry to decipher the clues on the ancient map while eluding their parents and some unsavory characters lurking in town. When the town’s wacky Mayor announces a plan to ditch the town’s pirate theme in lieu of a new “Dino-World” moniker the kids really need to find the lost treasure and save their town from the Mayor’s devious plans.

It was late on Christmas night, 1951, but Harry and Harriette Moore had yet to open any gifts. Instead they had delayed the festivities in anticipation of the arrival of their younger daughter, Evangeline, who was taking a train home from Washington, D.C. to celebrate along with her sister and grandmother. The Moores had another cause for celebration: the day marked their 25th wedding anniversary, a testament to their unshakeable partnership. But that night in their quiet home on a citrus grove in rural Mims, Florida, the African American couple were fatal victims of a horrific terrorist attack at the hands of those who wanted to silence the Moores.
At 10:20 p.m., a blast ripped apart their bedroom, splintering the floorboards, ceiling and front porch. The explosion was so powerful that witness reported hearing it several miles away. Pamphlets pushing for voters’ rights floated out of the house and onto the street, remnants of a long fight for justice. Harry Moore had spent much of the last two decades earning the enmity of Florida’s white supremacists as he organized for equal pay, voter registration, and justice for murdered African Americans. And yet despite his immense sacrifice and the nation’s initial shock at his assassination, Moore’s name soon faded from the pantheon of Civil Rights martyrs.
Twelve Years a Slave by Solomon Northup: A compelling novel of not just the trials and tribulations of a kidnapped Northrup, but the systemic psychological terror slaves he encountered during his ordeal.
Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl by Harriet Jacobs: The plight many American Female Slaves faced being the property of white men who forced themselves on these women whenever, where ever. The subject of the book had to hide in a small attic for years to avoid her pursuer.
Inhuman Bondage: The Rise and Fall of Slavery in the New World by David Brion Davis: The best book on the political mechanisms of chattel slavery I’ve read to date. Davis goes from slavery in the ancient world and explains in detail how African slavery that began with Portugal in the 15th Century was radically different from any form of the institution in the past. I finally understood the pervasive anti-Black racism that not just permeates American culture, but global culture in general.
The Internal Enemy: Slavery and War in Virginia, 1772-1832 by Alan Taylor: I finally understand why American history books often glaze over the War of 1812. It was an utter hot mess on the East Coast. I found myself laughing uncontrollably at the antics! Between American slaves and the British off the coast, American military persons were played thoroughly. Woo, Jefferson made a big mistake defunding the military during his presidency!
The Fire Next Time by James Baldwin: P-O-W-E-R-F-U-L! Baldwin had SAYS IT PLAIN, and READS the American white power structure down to it’s lowest common denominator SUCCINCTLY.
