The 41st NAACP Image Awards nominees were announced during a press conference at The SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills last January 6 of this year. Xlibris self-published author garned a spot under the Outstanding Literary - Debut author category. Her self-published book that highlights the practices that were once used to set the American standards on raising children to be kind, respectful and responsible adults is now part of the nation’s oldest and largest civil rights organization, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).
Shedding light on the timely topic of how to instill great values into today’s children, this book focuses on GETTING BACK TO THE BASICS OF PARENTING utilizing the lessons that were used for at least three generations but for many reasons are no longer being taught. Subtle and informative, this book infuses humor and wit as readers reflect upon their own experiences and are tuned into the experiences of others. It also spotlights how much was once taught through the simplest lessons. With chapters like, “Hold My Hand”, “The Patience of a Pomegranate”, “The Makings of a Man” and Family Ties” readers are in for a memorable illuminating experience. As Ward states, it is never too late to mold America’s children into kind, respectful and responsible adults.
Winners will announced live at the 41st NAACP Image Awards Night on Friday, February 26 (8:00 – 10:00 PM ET/PT Tape-Delayed) on FOX.
