African Icons by Tracey Baptiste

Warrior: Audrey Hepburn by Robert Matzen and Luca Dotti
After her retirement from film and raising her two sons, actress Audrey Hepburn used her fame and influence to capture the media's attention as she charged into the most dangerous places on earth to save children and mothers in dangerous situations. Matzen describes how Hepburn walked away from Hollywood to raise her sons, and then joined UNICEF, the organization that had saved her as a Dutch girl at the end of World War II.
Don't Forget Us Here by Mansoor Adayfi
Lost and Found at Guantanamo // With unexpected warmth and empathy, Mansoor AdayfI unwinds a narrative of fighting for hope and survival in unimaginable circumstances, illuminating the limitlessness of the human spirit. And through his own story, he also tells Guantánamo's story, offering an unprecedented window into one of the most secretive places on earth and the people--detainees and guards alike--who lived there with him.
All in the Family by Norman Lear
The Show That Changed Television // In this book, Norman Lear shares his take on fifty essential episodes that exemplify why the show remains as funny and relevant as ever. Its boundary-pushing approach to hot-button topics is examined with commentary from co-stars O' Connor, Stapleton, Reiner, and Struthers, as well as writers, directors, and guest stars from the show. With previously unseen notes from Lear, script pages, production designs, and a foreword by super-fan Jimmy Kimmel, this book is the ultimate companion to the seminal series and a must for fans of Lear's shows and television comedy.
