Review: Call Me Abou
The most refreshing part of reading stories by non–American writers is that they often break western formulas.

Under History, The CBS News segment "The opera 'Omar,' on a Muslim slave in America," is worth seeing. That and another segment under Politics, "Angela Davis on Continuing to Fight for Change," were brought to our attention by readers like you. Also, under Politics join us for "The Ronald H. Brown African Series Panel: Online Participation" Sat, Sep 10, 3:30p-5:30p and our own "Recipe for Change" and Discussion – Sat, Sep 10, 8p-8:30p.
Our new regular contributor EJ Brock, author of more than 40 spiritual paranormal sagas, has one article that was the favorite amongst our subscribers and another amongst those landing on our website. Our Herschel Walker based–on–facts–parody was tops on our Facebook page and an African proverb we found in "Call Me Abou" was the hit on our Instagram page.
