For thirty-three years, the football rivalry between the US Military Academy and Notre Dame provided countless thrills to fans across the country. Yet both schools decided to end the series at the peak of its popularity, after the 1946 game that many consider to be the “Game of the Century.”
Black Knights and Fighting Irish traces the history of one of the most storied rivalries in college football. However, it’s also a story of a nation emerging from years of carnage and sacrifice, learning again to enjoy the simple pleasures of sports and other leisure activities.
In 1948, Notre Dame coach Frank Leahy described the rivalry: “They were . . . rivals on the football field, who died as comrades-in-arms on the field of battle.” Seventy-five years later, Black Knights and Fighting Irish renews the tribute to these young men, their rivalry, and the institutions they represented.
For nine months in Auschwitz, eighteen-year-old Eva Fleiss clung to sanity by playing piano on imaginary keyboards. After liberation, Eva and the five remaining Jews of Laszlo, Hungary, journey home, seeking to restart their lives. Yet the town that deported them is not ready to embrace their return. Their former neighbors and friends resist relinquishing their newfound status and property, and they struggle with their roles as perpetrators, enablers, and bystanders during the Holocaust.
Longing for connection to her old life, Eva agrees to clean her former home, now the mayor’s home, in return for practice time on her piano. As her profound experiences allow her to access music at a depth she didn’t know existed, Eva’s performances begin to affect those around her-with unexpected consequences.

James Cooley unpacks his thoughts on the challenges that many Black men face due to their ancestors being taken away from their homeland over 400 years ago and forced into slavery and colonization.
Based on history, his experiences, and trying to adjust to being treated like a second-class citizen because of the color of his skin, Cooley highlights how that affects his vision, understanding, and focus in life. This impacts many areas of a Black man’s life, including self-worth and the ability to love, trust, and forgive.
He also discusses the stereotypes that many Black men face today based on the labels society has given them and how many Black men move forward despite this. Most importantly, he conveys that all men, regardless of race, creed, or color, are capable of love, respect, and dignity.
With ten contributing authors, Black men discuss their perspectives, how they feel and adjust to the past and present norms, and how they have overcome adversities and continue to do so.

What do Niccolo Machiavelli, Abraham Lincoln, Martha Stewart, Vladimir Putin, and Mel Gibson have in common? In their own ways, they each resemble the stormy God of the Hebrew Bible, Yahweh-known as the Father in the New Testament and Allah in the Qur’an. Whether or not we believe in his existence, we are all susceptible to the Yahweh complex, a distinct god complex modeled upon his attitudes, emotional style, and behaviors.
Like the deity itself, the complex can be positive or dark, influencing our relationships, our social environment and culture, our public affairs and international relations, our treatment of the earth, and, of course, our religions. Legacy of Darkness and Light explores both sides of this complex. Drawing upon the experiences of famous individuals as well as the larger factors that shape history, Legacy aims to help us recognize and understand our own Yahweh complex in order to deal with it in a healthy, conscious, and self-empowered way.
Great leaders are needed now more than ever. The trouble is that most leaders are not taught how to inspire their teams. Want to learn how to get the people you manage passionate about what they do each day?
