    SWAG Radio Presents: The Flip Artist with Erella

    in Books

    Tonight on SWAG Radio, Yara Kaleemah will be talking with Erella about her upcoming release, "The Flip Artist." 


    Erella is an aspiring urban fiction author from Cleveland, Ohio. Born and raised in the predominantly African American suburb of East Cleveland with both parents and three siblings, she was raised in a deeply religious household, that is, until she left home to escape family violence, abandoned her religious upbringing and quickly became entangled in the excitement of street life and ended up getting married to the “dope man” in the early 1990’s. This resulted in her experiencing a series of unfortunate experiences including domestic violence, federal drug trafficking charges, divorce, homelessness and relocation to New York City where she began writing The Flip Artist. After 9/11 she returned to Ohio, re-enrolled in college and has earned two Bachelor’s degrees, in Africana Studies in 2005 and in Spanish in 2012.


    Her novels chronicle the experiences of women who have survived drug addiction, hardship, loss, legal problems, crime, same-sex relationships, intimate partner violence, homelessness and other issues. She describes her writing style as “Pan African faction,” - fiction fused with historical and cultural facts. Currently single, she has three offspring and resides in Cleveland with her fourteen year old daughter. In addition to writing, she is an entrepreneur, who started her own publishing company, Wrong 2 Write Publishing and is also an English Language Learner Instructor for refugees and new immigrants preparing for the U.S. Citizenship Exam.

    in Travel

    World Footprints is pleased share this GOLD Award winning show which was recognized by the North American Travel Journalist Association.   In celebration of Black History Month and the 150 Anniversary Commemoration of the American Civil War and Gettysburg Address, you will see a very compelling side of Gettysburg as told through our guests.  In 2013 the city of Gettysburg, the nation and the world reflected upon the Battle of Gettysburg, which took place from July 1 to July 3 1863, and President Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address on November 19, 1863.  We showcased what visitors can expect to see and experience following the Commemorations and beyond the battlefield with Stacey Fox, Vice President of Marketing and Sales of the Gettysburg Convention & Visitors Bureau. Then, Scott Hancock, PhD, Associate Professor of History and Africana Studies at Gettysburg College joins us to discuss the role of the Underground Railroad in the war, the African-American struggle for freedom--from President Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address to Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, and the seminal events that took place in Gettysburg in 1863 that forever changed America. Finally, Debra Sandoe McCauslin of For the Cause/Gettysburg Histories takes us along the Underground Railroad in Adams County, Pennsylvania where we visit Yellow Hill and the Quaker Valley to uncover the African-American families who settled in the area and the role of Quakers in the Abolitionist Movement there.
