The foregoing was an audition for a talk show forum for Black women and books - The final choice was to have been made in December - however, not having heard from anyone by now, I guess I didn't make the cut.
So, I have decided, rather than allowing a perfectly good self produced, self taped video to go to waste, that I would re-release it on Facebook. For most of you who only know me with my zillions of hats, this is probably your first time seeing me without one. I used to say that only my friends and relatives who really knew me would recognize me regardless of what I was wearing.
Anyway, the video link is above in blue. And that's me in my room with a picture of a book on Michelle Obama over my right shoulder, and Joel Osteen over my left. Books you cannot see included Rev. Al Sharpton's "The Rejected Stone," and The Radical and the Republican (about Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln).
Stay Blessed &
