ALSO NEW IN BOOKS:
>> In addition to PNPYO president, youth activist and expectant mom, Krystal Tomlinson has added first-time author to her impressive résumé, recently launching the motivational offering, Kill Fear: The Art of Courageous Living. “The book looks at the root causes of fear,” she explains, “the science behind how the fear works, identifying the fear you have and tools to beat that fear in a corner.”
>> Historians will thank Debbie Jacob for Making Waves: How the West Indies Shaped the United States. Published by Ian Randle Press, the book gives an account, via 30 stories, of some famous and lesser-known Caribbean sons and daughters who significantly helped shape American society from the 1700s to the present. You’ll encounter “exciting and vivacious” tales centred on Alexander Hamilton, Sidney Poitier and Marcus Garvey, but you’ll also be enlightened about how a West Indian woman started the witch hysteria in Salem and the crucial yet unsung role Barbados played in the American Revolutionary War.
