“First Lady of the Black Press” Is Subject of Book Discussion

Ethel Payne Was Important Figure in Civil Rights Era

July 2015

Many people do not recognize the name Ethel Payne among the most important people in the civil rights movement. In his new biography, James McGrath Morris aims to change that.

Morris will discuss and sign “Eye on the Struggle: Ethel Payne, the First Lady of the Black Press” (HarperCollins, 2015) at noon on Tuesday, July 21, in the Mumford Room, located on the sixth floor of the James Madison Memorial Building, 101 Independence Ave. S.E., Washington, D.C. This Books & Beyond event is co-sponsored by the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress and the Library’s Manuscript Division. It is free and open to the public; no tickets are required. 

Payne was a journalist as a reporter for the Chicago Defender. In those pages, she continually urged President Dwight D. Eisenhower to support desegregation. She continued throughout her career to report on the struggles of the civil rights era, and her work is credited with persuading many African Americans to take up the cause. 

President Lyndon B. Johnson acknowledged her contributions by presenting her with one of the pens he used to sign the Civil Rights Act. When she went to work for CBS in 1972, she became the first African American woman to be a commentator for a national network.    

James McGrath Morris is an author, columnist and radio show host. He writes primarily biographies and works of narrative nonfiction. He is working on a new book, “The Ambulance Drivers: Hemingway and Dos Passos – Literary Lives in War and Peace,” that will be published by Da Capo Press in 2017. His other books include “Pulitzer: A Life in Politics, Print and Power,” “Jailhouse Journalism: The Fourth Estate Behind Bars” and (with Kevin Stillwell) “Revolution by Murder: Emma Goldman, Alexander Berkman and the Plot to Kill Henry Clay Frick.” 

Founded in 1800, the Library of Congress is the nation’s oldest federal cultural institution and the largest library in the world. The Library seeks to spark imagination and creativity and to further human understanding and wisdom by providing access to knowledge through its magnificent collections, programs, publications and exhibitions. Many of the Library’s rich resources can be accessed through its website at www.loc.gov

The Library’s Center for the Book, established by Congress in 1977 to “stimulate public interest in books and reading,” is a national force for reading and literacy promotion. A public-private partnership, it sponsors educational programs that reach readers of all ages through its affiliated state centers, collaborations with nonprofit reading promotion partners and through the Young Readers Center and the Poetry and Literature Center at the Library of Congress.

A Way To Afford Books You Want From Book Reviews

By Lawrence T. Scott

July 2015

You have read the book reviews and discovered books you want to buy. You love books and buying them is part of your budget. Being able to afford the books you want is not only good for you but it supports the authors and rewards them for their efforts. You should not be forced to sacrifice one thing for another because you currently cannot afford both.

So how do you manage to finance your book habit and everything else you need?

Well I'm reaching out to people to let them know that after years of study and research I have unlocked the key to having enough money so you can afford what you need or want. Having a good income is the basis and as a research analyst I am pleased to offer a new approach to personal finance and income generation.

Why I Sought A Financial Solution

From childhood I had concerns about people not having enough money. I watched my parents struggle to provide for the family. After college graduation I had my own experiences with tight budgets and not enough money. All of this led to a quest to understand why people can't get ahead and how they can.

To make a long story short, when I considered the idea rich people don't run short of money I began to investigate why. I reasoned if I could figure out how they managed to do it then I would be able to help myself and others do the same.

My Research Revealed The Cause Of Not Getting Ahead

It should come as no surprise it is a matter of income but what is not apparent is it is not about having a high salary. We find there are people in the middle class who struggle. The combination of living expenses, attempts to fund college for their children and retirement is too much. It goes beyond what they can earn through their jobs.

That understanding caused me to examine jobs in more detail in terms of income generation. What I uncovered is that jobs by design limit earning potential. But again when you consider wealthy people don't run short of money, it made sense to determine how they do that.

The secret is that wealthy people do not use employment as the primary means to generate income. They don't use investments initially as the primary means.

That difference is what explains why the top 1% is able to get ahead and the bottom 99% cannot.

From there I was able to determine what is needed to get ahead financially.

Make Plans To Increase Your Income

Take the time to learn more about my research findings and how they can help you. They have allowed me to increase my personal income and I'm helping others do the same.

So after you have checked the New York Times book reviews, fiction book reviews or book reviews online, on Amazon, from NPR and so on, you can ensure you will be able to afford the books you want because you have addressed your income needs.

The financial professionals don't have a clue. I had to figure it out on my own. While researching why people can't get ahead I discovered there is a HUGE difference between making money and earning it. That not only answers the why question but explains wealth inequality and what individuals can do to solve it. The real key to financial success is to gain the power to make money as opposed to earning it. Find out how in my FREE Making Money Explained course right now. => http://lawrencetscott.com
