How Three Black Women Combined Spiritual and Sensual Love, by Cherie Ann Turpin, Ph.D
Edwin Mellen Press, the publisher of my book How Three Black Women Writers Combined Spiritual and Sensual Love: Rhetorically Transcending the Boundaries of Love is now offering my book in soft-cover for half the price: $43.29 USD. It’s a heck of bargain considering the fact that the hardcover is $119 USD. So how do you get it? Well, until Mellen Press starts offering it online at Amazon or on their site, you have to call and ask, though I’m betting if enough people ask, they’ll relent and get on board with market demand much faster. Meanwhile, here’s the contact name and phone number:
Ms. Irene Miller
Be sure to let her know you found out the good news about getting my book soft-cover from me, Dr. Cherie Ann Turpin.
This essay does more than eulogize Dr. White–it provides readers with a clear understanding and context with regard to the significance of her work. It also serves as a sad reminder to all of us of the reality of our existence as being temporary, despite the importance of the work we produce for the collective, however compelling. May she rest in peace and join the Ancestors in Paradise as they watch over us the living.
Dr. Cherie Ann Turpin interviews Madrina Angelique, who “is initiated in the Palo tradition as Madre Nganga of Munanso Centella Ndoki Nyuyo Malongo Corta Lima Cordosa, initiated by Chief Ololele Afolabi, godson of Tata Antonio Ali. She is also initiated in Santeria as Iyalorisha of Ile Ori Yemaya, initiated by Baba Ogun Solu, godson of Chief Bolu Fantunmise of the Ifa Orisha Cultural Cener in Nigeria and Atlanta. Born and raised in rural Georgia, she has immersed herself in the study and practice of traditional southern hoodoo since childhood.” From RootMamaConjure.com
