“Whirlwind Or The Storm, LA Riots Perspectives” (endorsed by radio/television personality and author Tavis Smiley) chronicles the truth about rioting in America where Blacks are concerned and “The Elevator Is Broken” (endorsed by renowned psychologist, author and educator Dr. Na’im Akbar) is a tool for students, as well as parents and teachers to enhance a Black child’s leadership and study skills

Los Angeles, CA (BlackNews.com) — In time for Black History Month, Tenacious Books re-releases two of its strongest books; one that reveals Black History, and one that creates Black History. Whirlwind Or The Storm, LA Riots Perspectives (endorsed by radio/television personality and author Tavis Smiley) chronicles the truth about rioting in America where Blacks are concerned and The Elevator Is Broken (endorsed by renowned psychologist, author and educator Dr. Na’im Akbar) is a tool for students, as well as parents and teachers to enhance a Black child’s leadership and study skills.

One of the key ways in which we can keep our youth focused on greatness is to give them the tools they need to develop themselves.

The purpose of The Elevator is Broken is to make students more productive in and outside of the classroom. This powerful manual assists students with identifying and developing their leadership and decision-making skills. Written by educators Dr. John Hamilton and Larry Brown, M.A., The Elevator Is Broken is a “crucial tool to reach Black youth before they go astray, rather than trying to reform them after they have been misled,” according to Dr. Na’im Akbar. Another key to greatness is to have a realistic view of history and our part in it.

With Whirlwind Or The Storm, award-winning author, lecturer and filmmaker Darryl James assembled an in-depth study of rioting in America (studying riots from the 1800’s through 1992) and a collection of personal statements written on the twentieth anniversary of the infamous 1992 riots in LA, from the likes of LA Mayor James K. Hahn, Public Enemy’s Chuck D, Comedian Paul Mooney, cops, gang members and a host of activists, politicians and average citizens, delivering their own perspectives on rioting in America.

Dr. Na’im Akbar describes The Elevator Is Broken as a “readable and doable manual to help young people learn leadership. Using a language and examples that fit their experience, young people can learn to lead themselves to success. This book should be a requirement for all young people (especially those most socially vulnerable), from third grade to the college years.”

“I’ve known Darryl James since the early 1990’s,” said Tavis Smiley. “Over the years, he has never shied away from taking an unpopular position if he believes it is the right thing to do or say. James’ writing helps to spark much-needed dialogue and has such an edge that even if you don’t agree, it compels you to take a moment and think about it.”

Both books are available in paperback on www.TenaciousBooks.com or www.BrokenElevator.org and as Kindle eBooks on Amazon.com.

For Black History Month, Tenacious is offering a special for new authors seeking to self-publish: $1300 for editing, design, formatting and printing, making the new books available for sale on Amazon.com.
