  • Wanda's Picks Radio Show

    in Art

    This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!

    in Books

    Author Marcus Hammonds 'chats' with me about his new book, God, Technology & Us: How Our Digital Life Affects Our Faith
    About the book:
    God, Technology, & Us is an eye-opening and intriguing analysis of how we all use personal technology and the implications that behavior has for our relationship with God. This timely, thought-provoking book sheds light for Christians struggling to deal with the feelings of distraction and disconnection that can be brought about by digital living. Fortune 100 Innovation Strategist and Christian Educator Marcus Hammonds looks at how we use digital tools, such as social media, smartphones, and the Internet, and contrasts that with the behavior of individuals in the biblical narrative. With the Bible as his guide, Hammonds diagnoses the heart of our issues with technology. He then offers suggestions for how we can change our relationship with technology for the sake of our worship of God.
    About the author:

For more than a decade, he has helped consumer product companies figure out both where the world is headed, and what new products will we need when we get there.

    Just about every author knows that there are specific guidelines for submitting a manuscript or proposal to an agent or publisher. The question arises, how do you follow the current best writing practices and still appeal to the reader? What goes into deciding if your story line is one that will sell? You might conceive something that you feel is brilliant, but will others?
    Between Conrad and hosts Dennis N. Griffin and Eric James Miller they have more than 30 books in publication. They have been around the block and are happy to share what they learned along the way. Even if you are a seasoned author, this show is for you.

  • On Why Yet's Watch with Cedric the Author

    in Books

    Cedric Lewis is a native of Greenville, South Carolina, who turned his life around after being incarcerated and became an author. In 1999, Cedric read his first novel, True 2 Da Game by Terri Woods. But it was Wahida Clark's novel, Thugs and the Women Who Love Them, that inspired Cedric to write his own novel. Those two novels encouraged Cedric to reflect on his life, living in the projects among bank robbers, drug dealers and users, gang bangers, murderers and ghetto superstars. Being a product of the streets and living a lifestyle with only two possible outcomes, prison or death, Cedric's life was snatched away by the State agency at fourteen. While incarcerated, he worked hard to turn his life around and give others hope. Cedric's journey is a testament that when one door closes, another door will open up and no matter how many times you stumble, dust yourself off and try again.
    Join me, Why Yet, as I sit down and chat with Cedric the author and discover his inspiration for turning his life around. Call # 773-897-629
