After achieving her goal of earning a PhD, she set out on her next goal: to work with the renowned author.
Impressed by My's drive and talent, Alex Haley gave her a major assignment; to assist him in writing the remaining two-thirds of a book that was long overdue to his publisher. Within a matter of months together they completed the work and that book, Roots: The Saga of An American Family, catapulted Alex Haley to international fame.

After Alex's death, My Haley immersed herself in writing pieces based upon her Generation. After Alex's death, My Haley immersed herself in writing pieces based upon her growing up with her grandmother, other novels, and many screenplays for feature film and TV.With this book, My has returned to her own roots as an author.

-Dr. My Haley: From award-winning Author Alex Haley's widow, his collaborator on the bestsellling ROOTS, comes a new American epic from from the Civil War. "The Treason of Mary Louvestre" is based on the true story of a seamstress slave from the Confederate town of Norfolk, Virginia. When her owner gets involved with modifications to the ironclad CSS Virginia, Mary copies the plans and sets out to commit treason against the South. Facing certain death as a spy if caught, she treks two hundred miles during the bitter winter of 1862 to reach the office of Union Secretary of the Navy, Gideon Welles, where she hands over the plans. Haley, using rich narrative and characters drawn from that pinnacle era of American history, ably tells Mary's act of bravery. First there was Roots, now there is "The Treason of Mary Louvestre"

"And Noone Cried For NeeNee"
In 2001, he got his gun, he drew it back and then the attack, and noone cried for NeeNee.
Went through her heart, it ended her start; she layed there dying, while they stood there lying,
Getting their stories straight, till it was too late, and noone cried for NeeNee.
She laid on the floor, they closed the door. She tried to breathe, she took her last heave. It was an accident, and that's how it went. And noone cried for NeeNee.
Each day l think, given my every blink, my baby girl, she was my world.
No hands in the air, no hoodie was worn, and noone is crying for NeeNee.
I know how it goes, black on black crime still flows. Noone marches for her still, as l am held hostage against my will. It ain't OK, there has got to be a better way.
And noone cried for NeeNee.
I am getting it out. I cry, I shout. But noone hears, they don't see my tears. She is still my baby girl, still my world. And noone cried for NeeNee.

October and November are very busy months in the political arena. Just think, in only six (6) days we will be able to take a deep breath and rest for a day or two. As we get nearer to Election Day 2014 several political candidates will be popping in to discuss their political desires and ask you for their votes. I encourage you to listen to these candidates and make an educated choice when you enter the poll booth.
A few days ago we had Glynn Willis "In the Pickle Barrel". Wednesday, October 29th his opponent local Attorney and Civic Leader George Jebaily will sharing the same mic. This is a good time to find out more about Mr. Jebaily and his vision for the City of Florence. All I can say about these two gentleman is I am glad I live in the County of Florence not the City of Florence. As far as local elections go, this will be a tough choice for the local citizens. We really need to find out what the differences are in these two men.
October is Domestic Abuse Month. We have addressed this issue from many different angles. On this day we will have Debbie Singletary of Pepper Spray, Stun Guns, Whistles and More! Anyone one to guess the topic? All joking aside. South Carolina, where I hang my shingle and lay my head is the leader in Domestic Abuse and Death of Women By Significant Other statistics. Isn't this something to make you proud? We have looked at the cause, results and decisions made (and not made) surrounding this topic. We are now going to look at personal protection and prevention.
These topics and more* will fill our morning visit "In the Pickle Barrel" at 8AM-10AM EST.
*Hint: We just might talk about the marriage of Governor candidates Tom Ervin and Vincent Sheheen. Just in case you have not heard, Ervin has "thrown in the towel" for a wedding dress. Yes, that is tacky. What a darling couple. Got to give equal time to Governor Nikki Haley.
