Using My Word Power: Advocating for a More Civilized Society

Cover of Using My Word Power: Advocating for a More Civilized Society Being a journalist has not been my formal training nor my profession. Becoming an advocate journalist has been my calling.

In carrying out my calling, I have addressed some of the enduring issues of our times as well as pressing issues of the hour. Most of my writings during the last four decades have maintained their relevancy, fulfilling a needed voice.

As a collection, the selected commentaries are snapshots of history and are included because of their timeliness and timelessness. They have been written for a large radio station, a major metropolitan daily newspaper, community newspapers, and currently online.

This is Book I, Ethics and Values, of three books in the Real Advocacy Journalism® series. It has received great editorial reviews from Kirkus Reviews, Midwest Book Reviews, and Chanticleer International Book Reviews and more.

The wise use of words is one of the most effective and powerful tools we have as individuals to bring about meaningful change in our lives, our communities, state and nation—indeed in many areas of society.

My hope is that in sharing my attempts to improve understanding about issues that impact us all that you will be informed, enlightened, inspired and have reaffirmation that in addition to our beliefs, our words and actions are what advances a more civilized and better society.

This title is also available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Apple Books and other major online booksellers.

Shaping Public Opinion: How Real Advocacy Journalism Should Be Practiced

Purchase BooksShaping Public Opinion: How Real Advocacy Journalism Should Be Practiced revisits the writings of one of the foremost and influential journalists and political columnists of the last one-hundred years. Walter Lippmann’s writings contain much wisdom and instruction that can be applied by practitioners and observers of public and political discourse. It is hoped that this book will introduce, re-introduce, or serve as a reminder of just how great and meaningful Lippmann’s sketches were, how much they shed light, back then, and how they can illumine a path for us to rise above the political messaging morass in which we find ourselves today.

From Liberty to Magnolia: In Search of the American Dream

Purchase BooksFrom Liberty to Magnolia: In Search of the American Dream is the real-life story of the remarkable journey of a black woman who has lived, and continues to live, the “chicken-egg” dilemma in navigating American society. Which comes first? Is she black and happens to be a woman? Is she a woman who happens to black? It covers her early life as a farm girl born and bred in the bowels and bastion of Southern racism, who found words and books her friends, her constant companions, her ticket out of a life that could have confined and limited what or whom she could be. It paints the portrait of the person she has become, the indelible birthmarks of being a black and a woman notwithstanding, because she truly believed that achieving her dreams were possible, irrespective of her race or sex.
