  1. This is an interesting take on Tituba's story. This is fiction, right?
  2. Troy, I'd love to send you an advanced review copy of Dr. Sebi Speaks of Dembali. All right to send you a copy for your feedback? See the flyer below.
  3. I would like to reply to your post by sharing an excerpt from the upcoming book Dr. Sebi Speaks of Dembali (November 2020). On page 83, in Chapter Three, On Matters of Culture, it says: New Orleans in 1954 is a segregated port city, a white, Creole, and brown town plastered with signs that remind folks how to behave: Colored Entrance, White Entrance, Colored Waiting Room, Whites Only, Colored Water Fountain. When twenty-year-old Dr. Sebi settles down there in those days, he’s Alfredo Bowman, merchant seaman, transporter of cargo and travelers. He’s tall, jovial, and amazed at all the wel
  4. Thank you for sharing the winners. I see Malcolm is still relevant today as he was in the 20th century.
  5. Hi Troy. I'm new to AALBC. Happy to be in the community. Is your black-owned bookstore list still available? And I'll look into having Dr. Sebi Speaks of Dembali in the AALBC bookstore.

Part social commentary from a man who truly knows a thing or two about the black diaspora, having traveled around the world first as a merchant seaman, then a man in search of healing herbs. From rage to solemnity in a Honduran setting reminiscent of a fireside chat, Dr. Sebi Speaks of Dembali is an insightful read. "I went to the jungles of Africa, and I came back with an herb call cancansa that cured a man in L.A. of prostate cancer." --Dr. Sebi Thank you AALBC for the connection. I appreciate the opportunity to discuss this new book and others.
  7. Walkman93, I share your comments about Charlie's work. I call him that because we have a few things in common. We worked at Howard University's radio station WHUR, he in the late 70s as a reporter, me in the 1980s as a public affairs producer. I interviewed him about his book in 2014 and I was truly ecstatic about this stellar piece of journalism and bravery. One thing though, the cover on my hardback book is different from the paperback. No problem. Still a good book that should be required reading in all journalism classes.
