« Nobody wanted to help me. I had to do it myself, walking days after days with a heavy backpack as only luggage. I had to do it. My sisters had risked their lives during the Tsar Nicholas time. I had to do what I had to do. It was my turn. In four years, I have been in every shtetls of East Europe and I have taken sixteen thousand pictures between Romania, Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Poland, basically in all countries that were not behind "the Iron Curtain"... with the constant obsession to build a monument for the Jew people´s torment... The major requirement to become a human being is to do what others do not want to do. »
In this intriguing true story about abuses inside American television, Nita Wiggins details what happens off camera.
Nita began life with a belief in equal opportunity. She hoped to report on the Dallas Cowboys in a way no journalist had done before. Along the way, Nita interviewed social activist Rosa Parks, U.S. President Jimmy Carter, and sports figures Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, and Jackie Joyn-er-Kersee.
In Civil Rights Baby, Wiggins lays bare the misdeeds of the people who run TV newsrooms. As the firings of broadcasting executives in 2017 and 2018 illustrate, American newsrooms have been private chambers of hell for many female broadcast-ers-including Nita-and, like Nita, the women are fighting back. She also explores how the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which passed 56 days after her birth, succeeds and fails in her American life.

The name which predominates in the development of art throughout the twentieth century, and to which many of the revolutionary changes are ascribed, is that of Pablo Picasso (1881-1973). Not only was he one of the most influential artists, he was also one of the most versatile. This beautifully produced book surveys the whole range of his paintings, from the haunting works of the Blue Period, to the brute power of Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, the lyrical sweetness of his family portraits, the revolutionary developments of Cubism and the later manifold experimentations with form and colour.
Roland Penrose's introductory essay on Picasso was first published in 1971, when the great master was still alive. Penrose was acclaimed in his own right as a painter, and his long friendship with Picasso gave him unique insight into his life and work. David Lomas has written a preface introducing us to the friendship between these two artists. He has also written notes to each full-page colour plate, discussing the picture in detail, making this a perfect introduction to the twentieth century's most famous artist.
