Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Smiley has compiled a second volume of his two-minute commentaries featured on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, from 2002 to 2003, which can be heard in more than 100 radio markets. The book's five chapters are titled "Reflection"; "Advocacy"; "Public Policy"; "Race, Racism, and Black Folk"; and "Another Thing." His thought-provoking discussions about issues that affect and reflect on the black community are humorous, wise, and contentious. As with all of Smiley's essays, including tributes to Althea Gibson, Ben Carson, and Maynard Jackson, listeners are touched and inspired by his compassion and honesty. He challenges all African Americans to critically review the political, educational, and social climate in which we live. Also, some of his more controversial commentaries--including the boycott of MCI--that implore listeners to unify and call the phone numbers or send e-mail messages are in each chapter. Probably headed to the best-seller lists. Lillian Lewis
