A compelling story of agency, survival, struggle and triumph over adversity More than any other text, The African-American Odyssey illuminates the central place of African-Americans in U.S. history by telling the story of what it has meant to be black in America and how African-American history is inseparably woven into the greater context of American history.

Liverpool The 5th Beatle is a perspective on the rise of the Liverpool Mersey Sound by someone who drank in the same pubs, and played in the same clubs as the Beatles.

Not only is his book inspiring to minority groups throughout America but this novel insight into the Beatles and the ghetto conditions in which the Mersey Sound began has stirred avid interest in all age groups who are quite mesmerized by the truth behind the Beatles' legend.
