Book Review by Dennis Moore

Equal rights, fair play, justice are like the air; we all have it, or none of us has it. That is the truth of it.

August 21, 2016 (San Diego) - I feel honored and privileged to write this review of Lezley McSpadden’s book; Tell the Truth & Shame the Devil: The Life, Legacy, and Love of My Son Michael Brown. She and I actually have a lot in common, as we both were born in Missouri, me about 150 miles south of Ferguson in the bootheel, the small town of Charleston. Also, she bears a likeness to my sister Janet, also born in Charleston, mostly through their close set eyes and facial features.

THE AUDACIOUS WOMAN: THE 47TH NAACP IMAGE AWARD FOR LITERATURE NOMINEE

                                                                  

 

By Dennis Moore

November 17, 2015 (San Diego’s East County) - The Audacious Woman, an inspirational and empowering book by Pamela Toussaint, which this writer had the honor and privilege of reviewing for the East County Magazine in San Diego, has been nominated for the 47th NAACP Image Award in Literature. Toussaint is following in the footsteps of Gregory Reed’s Obama Talks Back and Michelle Alexander’s The New Jim Crow, who actually won the award, and this writer also had the distinct pleasure of writing the review of those books for the East County Magazine just prior to their winning. Hopefully, we will be able to say the same for Toussaint.
