December 26, 2017 – PETERSBURG, VA (WWBT)
A Virginia State University professor has written a book about Michael Jackson that takes a look at how the mid-1970s impacted the pop music star.
“Artists of all disciplines use their craft to express themselves,” said L. Roi Boyd III, who is also VSU’s theater director. “Shortly after Michael’s unexpected death in 2009, I remember thinking ‘Would anyone take the time to learn and study the true man through his creativity?’ In the 1970s, what appeared as a prosperous and mirthful lifestyle for Michael was a tense and unfulfilling existence.”
The book, “Bless His Soul: The Agony, The Ecstasy, & The Destiny of Michael Jackson,” examines Jackson’s “coming of age” between 1975 and 1978, just before the release of his “Destiny” album in 1979.
According to a press release about the book, “‘Bless His Soul’ is a raw in-depth look into the shaping of what would be Michael Jackson’s finest, most earth-shattering moment as the world’s greatest entertainer and artist.”
The book includes musical key notations printed of the songs analyzed, as well as photos of Jackson’s hometown of Gary, Indiana. It also has several pieces of Boyd’s personal Jackson memorabilia.

KWE PUBLISHING LLC PROUDLY PARTICIPATED IN “20 PERCENT COUNTS” FOR LATINA EQUAL PAY DAY ON THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2017
The wage disparity in the U.S. persists not only between men and women but also varies considerably by race and this pattern has persisted over many decades. Although women (of all races) are paid $.80 for every dollar men (all races, across all occupations) are paid, the wage gaps for nearly all other major racial groups are dramatically wider. Only the Asian-American women’s wage gap is smaller – but many smaller sub-groups of Asian-American women have a much larger wage gap. The wage gaps and Equal Pay Days noted below are based on calculations using 2015 median year ‘round, full- time earnings.
March 7 – Asian-American Women’s Equal Pay Day (85%)
April 4 – Traditional Equal Pay Day (80%)
July 31 – African American Women’s Equal Pay Day (63%)
- September 25 – Native American Women’s Equal Pay Day (59%)
- November 2 – Latina Women’s Equal Pay Day (54%)
For Latina Equal Pay Day, I offered to women 46% off my editing and formatting services.
