OneWomanShow* @Cleve State Univ- My Hometown!

Perhaps Cleveland is not my hometown anymore because Cleveland blessed and honored me with their presence, gifts and awards! The City Council dubbed me “Docta E the Inspirational Professor.” I stand amazed. Thanks to the English Department, Black Studies, Women’s Studies, Councilwoman Phyllis Cleveland, and all my former professors, colleagues, the students, friends and community members that came out to support my visit!

Call & Post Juneteenth and Mt. Olivet Baptist Church #phdtophd

A journey of a million miles begins one step at a time! Great weekend! Thanks to the Cleveland Call & Post (Ohio’s oldest and largest African American newspaper) for my performance at their 1st Juneteenth Festival Celebration on June 22nd. Thanks to everyone that came out to support me and have your books signed and for the love! The following day was my first official public book signing in Columbus, Ohio at the Mt. Olivet Baptist Church. I am speechless. My friends showered me with many hugs, well wishes and words of encouragement. Special thanks to my choir director, Willie Barthel and my dear friend Diann Johnson for organizing the signing and for the chocolate cake!
