First published in 1962, 100 YEARS OF LYNCHINGS, is a relevant today as it was then. It presents the reader with vivid newspaper accounts of a "red record of racial atrocities." It is a simple and straight forward presentation. Lacking narration, the news articles speak for themselves. Through them, we witness a history of racial atrocities that we cannot afford to forget. Ginzburg skillfully selected articles from a wide range of papers, large and small, radical and conservative, white and Black. Through them, he has created a documentary of lynchings. The collection of articles which extend into the 1960s provides a sobering view of American history. Few who read the book will remain unaffected by this view.
Through Ralph Ginzburg's 100 YEARS OF LYNCHINGS, we gain insight and understanding of the magnitude of racial violence. The hidden past is illuminated to rekindle the defensive vigilance of this generation.

David Walker's Appeal is an uncompromising African-centered discourse that attacks white injustice and advocates Black self-reliance. Its publication in 1830 intensified the debate and struggle against slavery. More than a petition against slavery, the Appeal is a foundational document from which many contemporary themes in Black political philosophy have evolved. Walker asserted the right of Black people to defend themselves against a common enemy by any means necessary. Because of his Appeal, David Walker remains one of the most durable political figures in our history. His clear presentation of the problems confronting people of African descent is prophetic, and it assures the relevance of the Appeal to contemporary readers. Includes an Introduction by Dr. James Turner, a leading thought leader in Africana and African American Studies.101 pages. Also available as a Kindle e-book.

This is the first book I’ve written that decided not to dedicate to anyone. I guess this is my book. The poems are a collection of things I needed to say. Throughout the work, one will discover the themes of despair, depression and desire. This book documents many failed relationships and broken promises. In many ways, this poetry collection closes a personal door in my life. As I move towards becoming fifty, Whispers, Secrets and Promises represents an entrance into what I now call my own Gethsemane.
