Marcus Garvey meets Gil Scott Heron
Gil Scott-Heron was born in Chicago, Illinois.His mother, Bobbie Scott-Heron, was an opera singer who performed with the New York Oratorio Society. Scott-Heron's father, Gil Heron, nicknamed "The Black Arrow," was a Jamaican soccer player in the 1950s who became the first black athlete to play for the Glasgow Celtic Football Club. Gil's parents separated in his early childhood and he was sent to live with his maternal grandmother, Lillie Scott, in Jackson, Tennessee.When Scott-Heron was 12 years old, his grandmother died and he returned to live with his mother in the Bronx, New York City. He enrolled at DeWitt Clinton High School,but later transferred to The Fieldston School after impressing the head of the English department with one of his writings and earning a full scholarship.As one of five black students at the prestigious school, Scott-Heron was faced with alienation and a significant socioeconomic gap.
Marcus Mosiah Garvey, Jr. was born in St. Ann's Bay, Jamaica to Marcus Mosiah Garvey, Sr., a mason, and Sarah Jane Richards, a domestic worker. Of eleven siblings, only Marcus, the youngest, and his sister Indiana survived until maturity.His family was financially stable given the circumstances of this time period.Therefore, Garvey's father could afford to maintain a large library, and it was from his father that Marcus gained his love for reading. He also attended the elementary schools in St. Ann's Bay during his youth.While attending these schools, Garvey first began to experience racism. When he was younger, he used to be friends and play with his white neighbors. However, when they reached their teenage years, they began to shun him.Sometime in 1900, Garvey entered into an apprenticeship with his uncle, Alfred Burrowes, who also had an extensive library, of which young Marcus made good use

JOIN ME FOR POP SCOTT TALKZ SHOW, WE ARE BUILDING STRONGER RELATIONSHIPS IN FAMILIES. GREAT INTERVIEWS HOSTED BY ME ALFRED SCOTT..
Scott Cluthe shares the mic with L A Kight 2 Nite-Comedian and author of the book-Dog Training the American male. Scott will discuss what L A might be reaching for with the book and LA will roll over so he can be scratched on his .......tummie ! Call in: 347-308-8478. ( L A Knight is NOT his real name...L.A. Knight is the pseudonym/alter ego of NY.Times and international best-selling author Steve Alten(MEG, The OMEGA PROJECT, The LOCH, DOMAIN, THE SHELL GAME, GOLIATH & GRIM REAPER).
.A. Knight was the only male born from a litter of four. He managed to escape from several disobedient schools and a failed mating in Philadelphia before trekking to South Florida where he crossbred with a divorced Doberman and sired two pups of his own. He embarked on a writing career at age five. DOG TRAINING THE AMERICAN MALE is his first book.
Actually. . .
L.A. Knight is the pseudonym/alter ego of NY.Times and international best-selling author Steve Alten(MEG, The OMEGA PROJECT, The LOCH, DOMAIN, THE SHELL GAME, GOLIATH & GRIM REAPER).
From the REAL author…DOG TRAINING THE AMERICAN MALE is the first of a series of novels in which I hope to launch a comedic trek. If you were expecting a romance novel, then you’re humping the wrong leg. Dog Training the American Male (loosely based on actual events and experiences) is more Wedding Crashers than Chick-lit and if you find yourself relating to any of these bizarre characters then I’m guessing you’re either married, own a dog, live in Boca Raton, or use Shades of Gray as a coffee table book. If it generates a laugh then you possess a superior intellect and I’ve done my job.
