Elizabeth Eckford Leverages Autobiography to Share Her Story as a Member of the Little Rock Nine Story 62 Years After Desegregating Central High

You can literally save the life of someone who is being bullied by being kind to them.”

— Elizabeth Eckford

LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS, UNITED STATES, August 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — African American history was brought to life for nearly 4,000 New Zealand students due to a visit from Little Rock Nine member Elizabeth Eckford and Dr. Eurydice Stanley, co-authors of The Worst First Day: Bullied While Desegregating Central High. Labor Day marks the anniversary of Eckford’s attempt to desegregate Central High in Little Rock, Arkansas, September 4, 1957. Sixty-two years later, Eckford continues to serve, telling her unique story in the hopes eradicating school bullying.

“You can literally save the life of someone who is being bullied by being kind to them,” said Eckford. “I speak from experience. Two students reached out to me in Speech class, my last class of the day. Their kindness gave me something to look forward to while enduring the hateful actions of other classmates.” Eckford remains friends with those students, Ken Reinhardt and Ann (Williams) Wedaman, to this day.

Stanley and Eckford were intrigued when they discovered African American history is taught extensively in many New Zealand high schools. It is a topic of great interest. From August 4 – 14, 2019, the authors presented civil rights history, current events impacting the African American community, Stanley’s personal experience with police brutality in Georgia and Eckford’s special anti-bullying message to students and teachers. The presentations, attended by 85 schools, were held at 10 locations throughout Auckland, Christchurch and Dunedin.

Eckford presented an overview of the civil rights movement and expounded upon insights from her autobiography, The Worst First Day, which leverages civil rights history to combat bullying. The book is written in verse and features captivating images that impact and inspire readers of all ages. Eckford was the first member of the Little Rock Nine to arrive at Little Rock Central High September 4, 1957 to desegregate the school. At age 15, she was blocked from entering Central High by enraged segregationists and Army Arkansas National Guard Soldiers deployed by Governor Orval Faubus. A photo captured of Eckford that day by photographer Will Counts became one of the most iconic images of the 20th century.

The Little Rock Nine were physically and mentally attacked by students who did not want them at Central. They were told by administrators they would be removed from the school if they retaliated. The Nine endured the attacks to help implement the 1954 Supreme Court Brown v. Board of Education decision which ended school desegregation. Their efforts and those of other “firsts” who were trailblazers resulted in the diversity seen in today’s schools.

Stanley shared her account of falling victim to police brutality in Sycamore, Georgia in 2000 in a presentation titled “The Opportunity Cost of the Call.” She discussed the rising number of African Americans being reported to law enforcement on false charges by Caucasian passersby and her own experience with being reported and attacked by local deputy sheriffs. “I will never forget someone hearing my story casually saying, ‘Sounds like walking while Black…happens every day.’ It shouldn’t happen to anyone. People are losing their lives due to false calls and the overzealous actions of some law enforcement officers.” said Stanley.

Fulbright Scholar and James Cook High School Teacher Roydon Agent invited Eckford and Stanley to New Zealand. Agent stated, “We teach this as an academic exercise, but they live it every day.” Agent authored Public Image, Private Shame, a textbook that studies Black Civil Rights in the United States. Additional talks included U.S. Embassy representatives who presented an overview of American Presidential elections and four members of the Polynesian Panthers, a social activist movement founded in the 70’s that fought against racism and discrimination for Pacific Islanders. Now, Polynesian Panthers Will Ilolohia, Melanie Anae, Alec Toleafoa and Tiglan Ness present in New Zealand schools to ensure students understand the efforts that took place to combat racism against Pacific Islanders in the past and the importance of continued efforts to end discrimination.

The last two tour presentations featured Katelyn Choe, U.S. Consul General, the senior ranking U.S. diplomat in New Zealand. Choe encouraged students to learn from Eckford’s experiences and show “compassionate empathy” toward one another. She noted the students in attendance were “…the future Kendall Reinhardt’s and Ann Williams’ who will stand up not just for your own rights, but more importantly for the rights of those who are hurting and being bullied.”

Eckford thoroughly enjoyed the trip. She stated, “This was my first time traveling to New Zealand. Reaching so many students interested in learning African American history was extremely gratifying, as was receiving video greetings from Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.” Ardern graciously send a video to Eckford welcoming the Civil Rights Icon to New Zealand.

A key message of The Worst First Day is resilience and tenacity. Readers are encouraged to learn from Eckford's example and #WalkPastHate.

The Worst First Day is available on Amazon at bit.ly/worst1st. The book was recently awarded the 2019 Children’s Book of the Year Indie Author Legacy Award (IALA). Learn more about The Worst First Day: Bullied While Desegregating Central High on www.worstfirstday.com.

Families Get the F.A.C.T.S.™ About Drug Addiction

Jennifer Maneely has released her new book called “Dear Parents: Strategies to Help Your Loved One Through Addiction.” Get the F.A.C.T.S.™

LAKE LURE, NC, UNITED STATES, August 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — North Carolina’s own Jennifer Maneely has released her new book called “Dear Parents: Strategies to Help Your Loved One Through Addiction.” With the drug overdose rates continuing to rise and the medical community struggling to keep up with the needs of drug-addicted patients, Jennifer focuses on strategies for the parents to support them in understanding what they can do to help.

Quickly, her new book “Dear Parents” reached the #1 Bestseller on Amazon. More and more family members are starting to seek help for themselves as the need for support for the families is growing exponentially.

Jennifer Maneely, a recovering addict herself with over a decade clean, had an epiphany while working for a leadership development company. A large percentage of their clients were desperately struggling with how to handle adult kids in addiction.

Because of her hard-won experience in addiction, she helped them by providing education, developing strategies, and providing the empowering messages they needed. Jen recognized that her insights into addiction world coupled with her experience as a coach, called her to dedicate her life to bringing her message of hope, experience, and wisdom to the front lines of the drug crisis in America.

In her book, she has laid out the framework for family members to follow through their journey supporting a loved one in addiction. Addiction can play by its own set of rules, it has its own language, and no one teaches you how to deal with these murky, confusing waters, until now.

Melissa McNair, MCC, MSC states, “This is the book a parent of an addict turns to when it’s clear that more of the same will never be enough, and the desire to do whatever it takes to break free from the pain has never been stronger. It illuminates this choice is taking on an assignment of a lifetime, and the deep-seeded commitment it requires to successfully repair and close the wide rift in this important relationship. Or walk away grounded in the knowledge that the decision to do so is made from an informed place and an act of love.”

The F.A.C.T.S.™ System is taking the addiction world by storm as it helps parents to start taking back control.
This proven system helps parents understand how they can support their loved one with a substance abuse issue. It supports them in answering that tough question "What do I do?" For many people, confidentiality is essential. This system is meeting parents where they are at in regard to their needs for privacy. Parents need real solutions, and the F.A.C.T.S.™ System provides that.

Lynn Carnes (Jennifer’s mom) wrote: “The most important lesson I got in her recovery was this: addicts lie, cheat and manipulate in order to fuel their addiction. As parents, we are overmatched from the start. We cannot imagine the things our little babies will do to get their high. If we stick to the parenting strategies that worked for our children when they were young, we are doomed from the start. It’s a whole new game and no one prepares us for it. You have to create a whole new relationship with yourself first and then with your child.”

The Way to Happiness Tackles Most Common Childhood Disease

A child who learns to take care of her teeth avoids being a statistic and aims toward a happy and healthy life.

That is why we provide free workshops to tackle this hidden but very prevalent issue in children.”

— Ivan Batalla, manager TWTH Center

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, August 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Sunday, September 1st, The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay will be holding a Toiletry Giveaway and workshop, “Take Care of Yourself”, to tackle childhood’s most common disease. The event will be held at The Way to Happiness center in downtown Clearwater. It will be provided in Spanish for the Hispanic community.

“According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry[1], tooth decay is the single most common chronic childhood disease, five times more common than asthma, four times more common than early-childhood obesity, and twenty times more common than diabetes” says Ivan Batalla, The Way to Happiness Center Manager, “That is why we provide free workshops to tackle this hidden but very prevalent issue in children.”

The workshop is based on The Way to Happiness book, authored by L. Ron Hubbard, in which he states “Preserve your teeth. If one brushed one’s teeth after every meal, it has been said that one would not suffer tooth decay. This, or chewing gum after each meal, goes far toward defending others from oral diseases and bad breath. Suggest to others that they preserve their teeth.”

Doors to The Way to Happiness Workshop will open at 4pm and everyone from the Hispanic community is invited to attend.

For more information about The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay or to participate in the workshop, please contact The Way to Happiness Community Center on 33 N. Fort Harrison Ave, Clearwater FL 33755 or call: (727) 467 6961.

Interest in "Gringo: My Life on the Edge as an International Fugitive" development rights grow

Dan Tito Davis and Rumaan Kidwai

SACRAMENTO, CA, UNITED STATES, August 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dan “Tito” Davis is the award-winning bestselling author of the book "Gringo: My Life on the Edge as an International Fugitive" has had interest in the movie rights to his book and life by Rumann Kidwai, an experienced filmmaker and producer based in Mumbai, India. Davis and Kidwai have had multiple meetings both in India and the US, discussing Davis’s life on the run, and his eventual capture.

When asked about his interest in Davis and his years on the run, Kidwai provided the following statement:

“Dan “Tito” Davis is the ultimate survivor. Having been an international fugitive for over 13 years, and across more than 54 countries, Tito had evaded the tough, three lettered trio of the F.B.I., C.I.A., and the D.E.A., and then, for good measure, the U.S. Marshals, Homeland Security, U.S. Customs, Interpol, local law enforcement agencies, immigration agents, mercenaries, guerilla organizations, professional kidnappers, career hitmen, vigilantes, human traffickers, and most other entities worth being wanted by.”

“Through the various chapters of his life, Tito dealt with the Bandidos Motorcycle Club, invented the “Red Bull” of the day, lived, laughed and loved with the Medellin cartel, negotiated the deadly Darien Gap, weathered three weddings, had plastic surgery to alter his appearance, owned a resort in Venezuela, attended school with third graders, looked down a few gun barrels, piloted jet airliners, won a national kite surfing championship, racked up a few million dollars, made some enemies and a heck of a lot of friends.”

“A casual observer would note that these feats are a touch beyond the ordinary.”

“I met Tito during slightly less tumultuous times – right after he met with the Dalai Lama (!) in the serene foothills of the Himalayas in India. A common friend, and pizza making pioneer, called Morgan Murugan had put us in touch, and after a brief conversation on the phone, Tito was on an aircraft and on his way to Mumbai, India, where we spent a few days at my apartment chatting and getting to know each other. It is then that I expressed my intention to do what I could in enabling his epic adventure to be translated to screen.”

“I had read up a bit about Tito, and caught some press regarding his exploits, and the recently released memoir of his days on the run titled, “Gringo – My life on the edge as an international fugitive”, which had already topped a few bestseller lists. Suffice it to say, that I found his story captivating – if you pardon the pun. What I found especially charming, was the elegant candour of the narrative. That such an epic could be stated in such a matter-of-fact manner – where the story truly spoke for itself.”

“We stayed in touch and met again in the hippie haven of Goa, India, where Tito pit-stopped during his record creating book signing tour to all seven continents. By now his book had sold tens of thousands of copies and Tito’s press coverage had snowballed into an avalanche. The fact that his story was screaming out loud to be told on screen was a foregone conclusion. “

“From its clutter-breaking novelty, to its plot elements and situations, to the fabric of its protagonist, to its cast of characters, its landscapes and locations, the myriad twists and turns, the human element at its core and the unconventional unfolding of its narrative, Tito’s account has all the makings of the quintessential blockbuster, and checks all the boxes. The fact that it is also spilling over with sex, drugs, hitmen, gangsters and beautiful women does its prospects no harm. And herein lies my confidence in its cinematic destiny.”

About Dan “Tito” Davis

Dan “Tito” Davis comes from a town in South Dakota so small that everyone knows their neighbor’s cat’s name. But once he got out, he made some noise. While at UNLV, he started manufacturing White Crosses, aka speed, and soon had the Bandidos motorcycle club distributing ten million pills a week. After serving a five year prison sentence, he got into the weed game, but soon after was set up on a phony charge by his childhood friend. Facing thirty years, Davis slipped into Mexico, not knowing a word of Spanish. He became Tito and began a thirteen-year odyssey that led him to an underground hideout for the Medellín Cartel in Colombia; through the jungles of the Darien Gap, the world’s most dangerous passageway; being interrogated in Cuba, and much more. Davis is discussing the rights to his story with multiple studios, agents, and actors while he finds the best outlet for it. He can be reached at dantitodavis@gmail.com and gringobook.com.

Retired Educator and Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist Ruth Beatrice to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

PORT SAINT LUCIE, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 28, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning.

Ruth Beatrice spent 38 years in elementary education, primarily as a first-grade teacher.

“I graduated high school in January of 1949,” recalls Beatrice. “My guidance counselors turned me in that direction because I had so many different experiences that would pertain to elementary education. At the time there was a shortage of teachers, not just in elementary, but high school, too.”

As a teacher, Beatrice earned a reputation for her willingness to go the extra mile. She would have her students produce shows and complete projects that would really build their confidence. A great motivator, Beatrice loved seeing the progress these kids made; everything she did was for them and to make learning more fun.

“I used to do a lot of activities with the kids,” says Beatrice. “When I would teach in Social Studies, it was a great opportunity to do some hands-on stuff. And I would have them make all kinds of crafts related to what we were studying. When you're working with young kids and you're having them do a lot of different activities, you're building up a lot of self-confidence.”

To instill a love of reading, Beatrice would have her students contribute something to a story. Their parents would type it up into a little book: on one side their story and then the other side would be a little picture to help them recall the story.

“They learned to read that way so much faster, because the story has more meaning to them. When they look at the pictures they had drawn, it helps them recall about what they have to read. And from their story we did all kinds of phonics things and we had them making out the beginning sounds and consonant sounds. It was a tremendous amount of fun.”

Beatrice later used her experiences to co-author books on tutoring for the Partners at Learning Series from 1978 to 1979 and in 1983.

Also in 1980, Beatrice discovered hypnosis. Today she is a a certified clinical hypnotherapist.

“My sister-in-law introduced me to one of the programs for adults at the high school where she lived. It was called ‘Self-Hypnosis’,” recalls Beatrice. “In the summertime would do hypnosis full time because they were off from school. The more I got into it, the more intriguing it was. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Ruth Beatrice in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on August 29th at 4pm EDT.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.
