The African American Authors Pavilion is a stop on the EDC Creations Virtual Book Tours

AALP was founded to promote awareness through African American Literature. It is my hope that authors, aspiring authors, poets of African American culture can be a positive force through learning and helping all who try to inspire others and themselves through the art of writing.

BOOK REVIEW

As I sat reading THE JOURNEY LESS TRAVELED, the true-life account of author, Loretta "Faith" Harris, I was moved to tears. The character and "faith" that is displayed in her story is truly amazing. She takes us on a rollercoaster journey that moves us from her near death experience, into her recovery and finally to her total victory! However, that's not all; she shares with us how to take our tragedies, turn them into triumphs and inspire others along the way.

I must also note that if her story alone wasn't more than noteworthy in itself, her continued dedication to her commitment as a teacher and educator were awe inspiring. Make sure to check out her seven steps to developing a conquerors mentality as well.

All I can say is Bravo AND Praise God for this inspiring author AND educator! ---5/5 stars. Reviewed by Jacqueline Moore for the RAWSISTAZ Reviewers

In the Land of Cotton by Martha A. Taylor

SLAVERY IS MORE THAN CHAINS AND SHACKLES
SLAVERY IS A STATE OF MIND

Immerse yourself in this highly anticipated political docu-drama set in the Deep South amidst the backdrop of the Civil Rights Movement.

Martha was a young white girl living in the Deep South, inundated with the racist sentiments of the times. But Martha's natural curiosity and generous heart led her to question this racial divide. When she discovered a primitive Negro family living deep in the woods near her house, everyone's life changed forever.

Take the journey of a lifetime alongside Martha as she forges relationships that lead to self discovery and a clearer understanding of the world around her. In the Land of Cotton provides an outstanding snapshot of life in the South during those troubled times - a snapshot everyone should take a close look at, regardless of era or color. The year was 1956.

BOOK REVIEW

"To be part of history is a wonderful experience but, to stand perfectly still holding your breath those precious few seconds when you know history is imminent but before it is written; before it actually becomes history, that is overwhelming." ~ Silas Boyd

In The Land of Cotton is a poignant and emotional chronicle of a young, unpretentious white girl coming to age in the color divided world of the fifties and sixties. Martha's story places the reader smack in the middle of the civil rights war; a beautiful and heart wrenching journey through history that weaves a tale of forbidden friendships, misconceptions and human nature, at both its best and worst.

Martha's passionate desire to break through the prejudice and learn for herself the truth, submerses the readers into the tumultuous, discriminatory world of soul mates kept apart by skin color and social stigma.

In The Land of Cotton is a prodigious must read for any generation. For those who experienced the world divided by flesh tone, Martha's take will bring them back to an all too familiar, and perhaps even uncomfortable, territory. For others, it will be a heart and eye opening rendition of history, and the long, hard fought battle of equal opportunity and universal acceptance, not just between colors, but people.

Martha's weaving of history and personal experience give readers a start to finish, can't put down narrative, offering a singular panorama of an ever changing, ever adapting world and the people caught in the maelstrom of it all. It is a seamlessly written tale of love, moral dilemma, honor, political uprising, conviction and self evolvement.

In light of this year's Presidential Election, In The Land of Cotton can't help but assume the form of a beacon of hope for any individual who has ever felt different and longed for more.

Well written, beautifully depicted and stirring, In The Land of Cotton is sure to present old and new reader alike with a unique perspective in to a part of history that shaped and molded past generations and formed the future as well as to serve as a reminder that true love is, and always has been, colorblind. -- 5/5 stars.
