“30 Days A Black Man” reflects on the dangerous trailblazing work of a White reporter posing as a Black man in the segregated South

Published

on

PITTSBURGH /PRNewswire/ — As we celebrate Black History Month, we take an important look back at what life was like during the Jim Crow period. Bill Steigerwald’s startling book, 30 Days A Black Man, takes us back to 1948 in the Deep South. While the year is now 2023, we are not far removed from the extreme racism of that time. Let’s look back, lest we forget…

“I quit being white, and free, and an American citizen when I climbed aboard that Jim Crow coach…I was Black, and in bondage – not quite slavery but not quite freedom, either.” – Ray Sprigle, 1948

30 Days A Black Man recounts the story of Ray Sprigle, a star reporter for the Post-Gazette – and he was White. Sprigle made the audacious choice to disguise himself as a Black man for 30 days and traveled alongside John Wesley Dobbs, a Black civil rights pioneer from Atlanta. His purpose: to experience what it was really like to be Black living in the South, and to bring greater awareness to the injustices Black people lived through daily.

Bill Steigerwald provides a vivid account of Sprigle’s journey. Sprigle witnessed the injustices faced by Black leaders, sharecroppers and family members of lynching victims; saw the inequities in education; and encountered a separate set of rules Black people had to follow under Jim Crow, such as: sitting in the back seat of vehicles; never calling a white man by his name, but calling him “mister”; or being prohibited from trying on clothes in a clothing store. He opened the eyes of White people in the North who were unaware of the unfair practices against Black people in the South.

30 Days A Black Mana retelling of Sprigle’s encounters with racism, reminds us all to be vigilant in our efforts to seek justice for all people. Released in 2017, the book is relevant today as America continues to experience racial tension.

“Ray Sprigle and Bill Steigerwald were both reporters for the Post-Gazette. 30 Days A Black Man is an important resource as we dialogue about race in America and continue to work toward justice,” says John Block, publisher of the Toledo Blade and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Sprigle’s descriptions and undisguised outrage at “the iniquitous Jim Crow system” shocked the North, enraged the South, and ignited the first national debate in the media about ending America’s system of apartheid. Six years before Brown v. Board of Education, seven years before the murder of Emmett Till, and thirteen years before John Howard Griffin’s similar experiment became the bestseller Black Like Me, Sprigle’s intrepid journalism blasted into the American consciousness the grim reality of black lives in the South.

30 Days A Black Man by Bill Steigerwald is available on Amazon.

Introducing the New Children’s Book You Can Buy with Kindness

Published

on

LOS ANGELES /PRNewswire/ — To celebrate “Random Acts of Kindness Week” from February 12th – 19th, author H.D. Ronay is accepting random acts of kindness as payment for his new book “Magoo and His Magic Poo.”

During the week that inspires good deeds and selfless acts, the first 100 people to share their random act of kindness on Instagram and tag @MagooAndHisMagic while using the hashtag #MagooKindnessPayment will receive a free copy of the book about a superhero cat who uses his unique “gift” to rescue puppies from a puppy mill.

Magoo and His Magic Poo

Written by Cannes Lions-winning Creative Director H.D. Ronay and illustrated by Clio award-winner Michael Harring, the creative team says the week aligns perfectly with Magoo’s mission. In the story, Magoo performs an act of kindness to help set free a group of puppies in need, and the hope is to inspire more actions in that same spirit.

According to Ronay, “This is a story about celebrating the gifts we’ve all been given, no matter how unusual they might be, and using them for good.”

About the book, Ronay says, “We wanted to create something with a timely message delivered in a package that would be hard to ignore, and even harder not to laugh along with. It’s definitely outrageous but also meaningful. And let’s face it: Poo is funny and kindness is cool.”

Harring adds, “Magoo is a rare character with an unlikely superpower. It’s why we chose black & white which is unusual to see today in a world saturated with color. And, we want this book to make you laugh but also to make you think about your own talents and ways to possibly put them to good use.”

An early review from Midwest Book Review calls the story “freshly unique from beginning to end … offering valuable discussion points on kindness and acceptance.”

Recent release “Dancing Nude in a Periwinkle Garden (Life through the Eyes of a Teenage Nudist)” by Newman Springs Publishing author Lisa “Angel” Lite is a stunning tale centered around Angel and her sisters, who split their time between their aunt’s nudist community and their dysfunctional family at home.

Dancing Nude in a Periwinkle Garden

NEW YORK, October 17, 2022 (Newswire.com) – Lisa “Angel” Lite has completed her new book, “Dancing Nude in a Periwinkle Garden (Life through the Eyes of a Teenage Nudist)”: a gripping and powerful tale of Angel, a young woman who struggles to understand her life and her mother’s issues that affect Angel and her sisters.

“Being nudists since they were toddlers, Angel and her sisters experience two vastly different lifestyles—summers with their aunt in a nudist resort and winters with their mother in a highly dysfunctional family,” writes Lite.

“In their quest to find out if there really is such a thing as ‘normal,’ we engage a host of colorful characters where we experience everything from pheromone parties and skinny-dipping to finally getting a peek into the mysterious actions of the Secret Nudist Club.

“Also, although Angel’s sisters fear their mother is possessed by an evil spirit, Angel is convinced that she, as well as her mother, are actually the victims of a malfunctioning gene passed down to them from her grandfather—a man seriously considered insane.

“In this highly humorous adventure that is amazingly revealing and constantly surprising, Angel, her sisters, and even the reader may begin to wonder if there really is such a thing as normal. Maybe we’re all just a little insane.”

Published by Newman Springs Publishing, Lisa “Angel” Lite’s captivating tale explores the sometimes difficult lives Angel and her sisters live, and how they manage to find humor and hope to keep going. Expertly paced and beautifully written, this character-driven narrative will leave readers spellbound until its conclusion and stay with them long after the final page.
