The name Disney is celebrated throughout the world because of its association with blockbuster animated films and most especially iconic cartoon characters. Just about everyone on the planet, regardless of time, place, or culture, has at one time or another become acquainted with Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and everybody’s favorite anthropomorphic dog, Goofy. These are the characters that we know and love.

Inside you will read about…

â?? Humble Beginnings
â?? Serving in World War I
â?? Disney, Iwerks, and Innovation
â?? The Lucky Rabbit and Mickey Mouse
â?? The Road to Success
â?? Disney During World War II
And much more!

In recent years Disney has become set to become even larger by adopting a new host of characters from George Lucas’ Star Wars franchise. It seems that the name Disney, even 50 some years after Walt Disney’s death, is destined to get even bigger. But as much as we can associate the name Disney with these incredible films, it is amazing how little most people know about Walt Disney himself. Few know of Disney’s humble upbringing in rural America, learning to draw farm animals and flowers. Very few know the origin of Mickey Mouse, and even fewer know of the role that Donald Duck played during the war effort of World War II. Come along as we present to you a tale just as fascinating as any plot sequence to have ever graced Walt Disney’s storyboard.

To the average American, there was nothing out of the ordinary about Edmund Kemper before 1973. Standing at six-foot-nine, the young man was a giant, but he was gentle, soft spoken, and shy. He lived with his mother into his mid-twenties and frequented local bars, cozying up to police officersâ??a job he had once hoped to hold himself but couldn’t since he was too tall. This was one reality of Kemper’s lifeâ??the reality he wanted those around him to see. There was another side to the man though, a much darker side. Kemper’s actions in his life shocked America, who dubbed him the Co-Ed Killer for his urge to murder and violate co-ed girls in Northern California.

Inside you will read about…

â?? Hatred is Born
â?? Kemper’s First Murders
â?? Institutionalized with an IQ of 145
â?? The Co-Ed Killer
â?? Kemper’s Grand Finale: The Death of His Mother
â?? Arrest, Imprisonment, and Parole
And much more!



Susan Smith : Child Killer: An anthology of True Crime

by Carla Thompson

An anthology of True Crime.
The idea of a mother who kills her children will always capture the attention of the nation, and in some cases the entire world will tune in as they did in Smith’s situation, at first with sympathy and then with outrage. Why would someone commit the most unspeakable of acts? How could a mother kill her child? In 1994, these questions were asked of Susan Smith, a young woman living in Union of South Carolina during an unusual case.



Almost a Statistic: The Remarkable Story of Drs. Vickie and Maurice McBride

by Jessica Wallace McBride

This is the amazing story of who Ebony Magazine dubbed “A Dynamic Duo” and who Black Entertainment Television (BET) named one of the Most Inspirational Stories of 2013â??the mother and son who exceeded everyone’s expectations and carved their own path to success as the first mother and child to earn their doctorates together, from the same school on the same day.
Born to an imprisoned teenager, Vickie lived a good life with her adoptive mother who loved her unconditionally, but whose staunch traditional beliefs about not talking to children about certain realities of life left Vickie vulnerable to boys who knew what to do with a child in a woman’s body. Years before she could drive, drink, or vote, Vickie was raising a son and trying to figure out how to break the curse of incarceration and secure a future for her family. Instead of limiting herself to low expectations and becoming a statistic, she became Dr. Vickie McBride.
As a small child, Maurice knew that Vickie was his mother, technically. Grandma was really mama, and Vickie was his best friend. Some of his fondest memories are of his childhood before Vickie left home, but some of his worst are of his life with Vickie, miles away from his mama. In Vickie’s home, punishment for infractions, both real and imagined, was swift. Eventually, Maurice dropped out of high school, spent time in jail, and had a successful music career. However, the need for a good education grew as his career as a rapper faded. Despite the negative labels, he fought against his past mistakes and became more than anyone had imagined. He became Dr. Maurice McBride.
Drs. Vickie and Maurice McBride came from “nowhere” and are “now here,” sharing their story of an unbreakable bond and incredible forgiveness that will motivate and inspire people of all ages for years to come.
