Where Do You Stand at a Time of Challenge and Controversy?



Today we pay our respects and honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., one of the most influential civil rights leaders in our country’s history.


The 2020 global COVID-19 pandemic presented us with unparalleled uncertainty. However, as a result of George Floyd’s death, it also became a significant turning point in the #BLM movement, inspiring a worldwide reckoning over racial injustice. The death of Floyd, and many other African Americans, also sparked a sea of change necessary in our society. My recent novel, Betrayal in Black, pays homage to these unfortunate black citizens, reminding us that behind every victim is a tragic family who mourns his or her loss.


While we have come a long way since the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, we still have a long road ahead.


As we move forward into a new year and new administration, I urge you to commit to inspiring and motivating others as we navigate our changing landscape. We must continue Dr. King’s fight for racial and financial justice.
