Landers – Richard SelcerHistory of Fort Worth in Black & White –  

RICHARD F. SELCER is a native Fort Worther who has taught in his hometown for more than forty years. He holds a Ph.D. from TCU, and has authored ten books, plus dozens of articles on Western, military, and cultural history. He has taught for years at Tarrant County College, Dallas County College, and Weatherford College. A History of Fort Worth in Black & White fills a long-empty niche on the Fort Worth bookshelf: a scholarly history of the city’s black community that starts at the beginning with Ripley Arnold and the early settlers, and comes down to today with our current battles over education, housing, and representation in city affairs. The book’s sidebars on some noted and some not-so-noted African Americans make it appealing as a school text as well as a book for the general reader. Using a wealth of primary sources, Richard Selcer dispels several enduring myths, for instance the mistaken belief that Camp Bowie trained only white soldiers, and the spurious claim that Fort Worth managed to avoid the racial violence that plagued other American cities in the twentieth century. Selcer arrives at some surprisingly frank conclusions that will challenge current politically correct notions.

S&R Danny Garrett – Weird Yet Strange –  Danny Garrett Weird Yet Strange

A Texas native, DANNY GARRETT was drafted into the army for the Vietnam War in 1968. Following his service, he moved to Austin, where he began to practice his poster art for Armadillo World Headquarters, Antone’s, and many other clients. Garrett’s posters promoted the appearances of such legends as Muddy Waters, B. B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Willie Nelson, and Eric Clapton. Garrett has also produced a substantial body of film and computer game work, in addition to teaching art and design at Austin Community College and Auckland University of Technology in New Zealand. He lives with his wife, Kelley, in the Texas Hill Country, where he continues to draw, paint, and write. Weird But Strange – Danny Garrett began creating music poster art at the same time that such art began to chronicle the establishment of the Austin music scene in the early 1970s. Over the course of the next two decades, Texas’s capital city became a world-renowned music mecca, and Austin music artists played a vital role in capturing and sharing the vibrant culture swelling within what would become the “Live Music Capital of the World.” Describing the evolution of the Austin music poster, Garrett richly and poignantly details the history of the music, musicians, and venues that brought the surprising harmony of “the Austin Sound” to a country otherwise polarized by antagonistic cultural, social, and political perspectives. Garrett’s collection includes posters for Willie Nelson and his Fourth of July Picnics, blues greats like B. B. King, Muddy Waters, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, and a host of great rock musicians—along with narratives that detail the rise of such iconic Austin venues as Armadillo World Headquarters and Antone’s.

Drew Sanders recounts engaging tales of family life against the backdrop of Fort Worth and Tarrant County history—among them stories about the famous family Sunday dinners (recipes included). Though some family members, including writer Bob Ray Sanders and transplant specialist Dollie Gentry, no longer live in this special place, life in the Garden of Eden still shapes the family’s character and binds them to the homeplace.
