February 2019 Activities Update to Mitchellworksweb Blog


Well it’s been a few weeks since I added information to this blog.

Want you to know that I received my Kirkus Review for my indie published diversity children’s book “A Birthday Story.” The review will be helpful, as I continue to sell the book. (Hope purchasing my book is on your list of books to buy.) I’ve also purchased an ad to help with the books promotion.

As you are probably aware, this is Black History Month.

I should say before I continue, that I celebrate black history 24/7 as I believe that to live is to create history (individual, family, community).

I receive and post “goodblacknews.org” notes almost daily. They report on individuals who are the “First” African-American in their industry or the First to accomplish a feat or achieve a position, etc. Black history 24/7.

For Black History Month I got a request to daily note the personalities, incidents, and struggles that are typically a part of black history, on a daily basis. So, I’ve added that daily activity to my things to do list and have, so far, written notes on George Washington Carver, Elijah McCoy, Sojourner Truth, Richard Harvey Cain, William F. Lee, Joseph Hayne Rainey, Rosa Parks and the Negro Baseball Leagues. Have you heard of the Negro Baseball Leagues?

With my reading, and inbox email answering I’m busy. So, I’m out.
