Dr Creigs Beverly and Dr Olivia Beverly share, “This anthology represents a selective literary collection of research and scholarship over fifty years of the author’s professional career. At the time this manuscript was submitted to the publisher, America was experiencing an endemic in violent crime and mass shootings; death, destruction, and heartache over COVID-19; an increase in suicides among young people; a rise and proliferation of hate groups rooted in the philosophy of white supremacy; an increase in homelessness; and a loss of hope for far too many people!
“The reader of this manuscript will find a generalized discussion across various titles rooted in the results of human oppression in its various forms on the choices human beings make. But if readers draw anything of importance or significance from the manuscript, let it be to keep hope alive in a world gone mad!”
