I edited the book, Black Students. New York: Free Press. 1970. LCCN 79116809, by Harry Edwards, Ph. D. He also wrote The Revolt of the Black Athlete. Dr. Edwards, according to Wikipedia, now is: ” Professor Emeritus of Sociology at the University of California, Berkeley. He has served as a staff consultant to the San Francisco 49ers football team and to the Golden State Warriors basketball team. He has also been involved in recruiting black talent for front-office positions in major league baseball.” Here is the link for more information from that source. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Edwards_(sociologist) . Here is the link where you may buy his book, The Revolt of the Black Athlete:
- Numerous articles, speeches, and book manuscripts for Dr. Gloria I. Joseph, while we were at Cornell University, where she was the Director of the Committee on Special Educational Projects (COSEP) program.
- The Book for Math Empowerment, by Sandra Manigault. Here is the link to The Manigault institute, founded by Sandra and Donald Manigault, an organization for which I also am a private college prep tutor for the critical reading and writing portions of the SAT Exam.

Scripts for Educational and Performing Arts
Nancy was President/Writer/Producer Director of Variety Pack, a non-profit, serving people in Washington, D.C. These folks were homeless, drug addicted, HIV+, sexually abused, and/or suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Nancy scripted their stories.
She and the homeless people, themselves, performed them as monologues to educate people about the reasons for and complexity of their circumstances.
They performed for educational, religious, civic and governmental organizations, before members of Congress and for the Virginia Governor’s Conference on Housing and Homelessness. The National Archives taped a performance; a script was entered into the Congressional Record, and her troupe performed on cable television. These efforts, along with assisting people in finding jobs, going back to school, having enough food, clothing, medical care, and drug rehabilitation, resulted in several awards.
Guided Meditation with Music by world-famous Reiki Master, Llewellyn.
Available in MP3 and wave downloads Plus CD’s
or go to iTunes, Amazon Digital Services, and other world-wide outlets.
This very same Nancy is certified in a number of wellness modalities, commonly referred to as being within the Complementary and Alternative Medicine realm. Nancy writes and teaches about meditation and CAM, so you will see more information about products and services on her website: www.getwell.guru. We hope you will follow her there, too.
In other words, Nancy is a multi-faceted person with a vast background of experiences in many walks of life. This enables her to understand and to empathize with your situation, which will help her put your thoughts into words, which meet your needs.
