  Come Look With Me:
  Discovering African American Art for Children

   by James Haywood Rolling, Jr., Ed.D.

 
Children are invited to wake up with Romare Bearden’s
   Morning, and to explore and join in important ceremonies from
   Clementine Hunter's Baptism to Ellis Wilson's The Funeral  
   Procession. They can explore the ideas and the unique
   struggles of African American artists and their contribution to
   the culture of the United States through the works of Henry O.
   Tanner (The Banjo Player) and Elizabeth Catlett (Harriet). They
   can share the vigor of the Harlem Renaissance in the work of
   Jacob Lawrence (Brownstones), and William H. Johnson
   (Children Playing London Bridge).


    
 



Living Sacrifices:
For Those Dying To Rise To A Life Worth Giving
   by James Haywood Rolling, Jr.

   New life can flower from even the driest stump of a tree. Based
on the 12th chapter of Romans in the New Testament of
the Bible, Living Sacrifices weaves together common sense
prose, solid scriptural exposition, and candid personal  
testimony. Unique parables and anecdotes join to tell the good
news of God’s love, freely offered to both the loved and the
unloved, and to all who are dying to rise to a life that bears the
kind of fruit that is worth giving away. An original poem sets the
tone for each unfolding chapter.

Cinderella Story: A Scholarly Sketchbook About
Race, Identity, Barack Obama, the Human Spirit,  
and Other Stuff That Matters

by James Haywood Rolling, Jr., Ed.D.

Cinderella Story argues that unexpected identity can be created from
the charred embers of self-imagery strewn about an ash heap of
stereotypes
reinterpreted atop a pyre of modern identity constructs,
authoritative stories, and assigned names. Cinderella Story renders its
argument as a work of art, an extended self-portrait
a blending of the
lyrical and the analytical, of the prosaic and the poetic, of rigor and
revelation.






A surprising look at the origins of creativity, and why future innovators are best forged through group collaboration and
adaptive social networking

 

Companies and organizations everywhere cite creativity as the most desirable – and elusive – leadership quality of the future. Yet scores measuring creativity among American children have been on the wane for decades. A specialist in creative leadership, professor James Haywood Rolling, Jr. knows firsthand that the classroom is a key to either unlocking or blocking the critical imagination. He argues that today’s schools, with their focus on rote learning and test-taking, work to stymie creativity, leaving children cut off from their natural impulses and boxed in by low expectations. Drawing on cutting-edge research in the realms of biological swarm theory, systems theory, and complexity theory, Rolling shows why group collaboration and adaptive social networking make us both smarter and more creative, and how we can design education and workplace practices around these natural principles, instead of pushing a limited focus on individual achievement that serves neither children nor their future colleagues, managers and mentors. The surprising truth is that the future will be pioneered by the collective problem-solvers, making this a must-read for business leaders, educators, and anyone else concerned with nurturing creative intelligence and innovative habits in today’s youth.
