"April R. Silver and her ... team are first-in-class. They bring the skill, sharp insight, and integrity to the projects they take on and are masters in the use of new and traditional media. Silver is a spirited and visionary leader. She's an uncommon professional and a joy to work with. AKILA WORKSONGS is the wise choice for any effective reach into the hearts and minds of Urban America--they over-deliver. Surely, they are my choice!"

Monthly Spotlight (January 2021)

Black Power, Black Lawyer by Nkechi Taifa.

Black Power, Black Lawyer, a newly released memoir by Nkechi Taifa, stitches suspense, calamity, humor, and wit into a tapestry of history, politics, law, culture, and romance. Whether serious or scandalous, Taifa’s audacious quest for justice is a gripping commentary on life; the perennial nature of human resistance against oppression; and her earnest embrace of what is fair and correct. Her memoir tells the story of a girl who becomes a revolutionary, a revolutionary who becomes a lawyer, and a lawyer who fights for justice!
