7/5/15: Forgotten Harvest 25th Anniversary / Child Author Eden Comer / Nick Cave Exhibit

Posted by American Black Journal Editor on

Kirk Mayes, CEO of Forgotten Harvest, joins us to discuss the organization’s innovative approach to fighting hunger and poverty in metro-Detroit. 

Watch Kirk's segment here: 



Ken Coleman looks back this date in Detroit’s black history. Significant events include the birth of award-winning actress Della Reese, a feature in Jet magazine on Civil Rights attorneys Claudia Morcom and Anna Diggs, and the election of Gregory Ingram to serve as bishop at Oak Grove A.M.E. church. 

Watch Ken's segment here: 



Joining Stephen Henderson is 11-year-old author Eden Comer and her father Carlton Comer, who doubles as her editor. The story focuses on two cats, Smoke and Coal, who have to overcome bullying from another cat. Although Eden has not herself been a victim of bullying, she cares deeply about the issue and hopes her book will help shed light on the subject.
