Jeremiah Camara is the author of the best-selling book Holy Lockdown: Does the Church Limit Black Progress? and the creator of several DVDs, including Blind Belief: How Religion Divides the Black Community.Camara has appeared on countless radio shows, including The Tom Pope Show, LIBRadio, and has been a frequent guest on the Michael Baisden Show. He has lectured all over the country, and Holy Lockdown has been endorsed by a host of prominent clergy. Camara is honored to have collaborations with two of his closest colleagues, Dr. Ray Hagins, chief elder and pastor of the Afrikan Village in St. Louis, MO., and Professor Walter Williams, author of The Historical Origins of Christianity and The Historical Origins of Islam. Camara, a musician and the former owner of Word Up Bookstore, in his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio, created a videocassette documentary in 1989, titled Psychological Wars, which examined subliminal messages in sitcoms, cartoons and commercials that negatively impacted the psyche of African Americans. The documentary received national attention and endorsements by noted Black educators Na’im Akbar and Jawanza Kunjufu. Camara was once a member of one of the largest Black churches in Cincinnati, Ohio. Baptized at an early age, he moved to Cleveland, Ohio, shortly after high school, where he began his quest toward a deeper understanding of spirituality. While in Cleveland, he began to diligently study the Bible and gave serious thought to becoming a minister, or at least living an active life in the church. During that time, he attended a Baptist church, at least two or three times a week. Despite his heavily Jazz-infused upbringing, the only music he listened to at that time was gospel.
