Featured Book: A Cry in The Night by Mary S Brown-Durr

About the book:

Canton, Mississippi, Madison County, the New City of Lights Was Once a City Saturated with Murder, Hatred, Violence, and Darkness During the Early Years. A Cry in the Night is based on the life and murder of an 18-year-old civil rights worker in the small, sleepy town of Canton, Mississippi, during the early ’60s.

About the author:

I was born in Belzoni, Mississippi in 1953. The family moved to Madison County ten miles west of Canton, Mississippi in 1956. However, school years were spent at Cameron Street Elementary, Rogers Junior-Senior Colored, and Canton Public High Schools. I received an extensive education from Mississippi College, Jackson State University, and Walden University. I currently hold degrees in Business Administration and Instructional Design and Technology with a specialist in Training Development and Performance Improvement, an Ed.D. concentration in Educational Technology. My lifetime achievement includes, but is not limited to, the Civil Rights Crusade, business development, curriculum design and development, corporate training, research, program evaluation, instructional design and development, technical writing, competency-based instruction, supervisory/management in customer care instructions, leadership and diversity training, and creative problem solving skills in an Andragogy learning environment.
