He continued. “Events like this build camaraderie, and can often encourage Black writers to continue even in the face of hostility or indifference.”

During the early '90's, I began volunteering with Dr. Gossie H. Hudson, Professor of History at Morgan and host of WEAA's 'Just You & Me' two-way-talk show. Later, I went on to host the Tuesday Edition of 'Late Night Music' and host my own 'Public Education Plus' talk show on 88.9 FM. During this time, I appeared on Kweisi Mfume's 'Bottom Line Show', Richard Sher's 'Square Off', and The Ron Shapiro Show to discuss community matters.
In 2001 during a self-imposed exile, I relocated to Des Moines, Iowa. While there, I worked as a community outreach worker for Iowa State Rep. Wayne Ford's Urban Dreams Community Center. Consequently, I went to work as secretary to State Senator Jack Hatch. Further, after having opportunities to travel the world like Paris, London, West Africa, Monte Carlos and parts of Iceland, I returned to Bmore where I'm receiving a rebirth and opportunity to do my greatest good in assisting Doni Glover and Bmorenews.
