TO PROTECT THE INNOCENT, BLACK-OWNED TECH STARTUP IS DEVELOPING AN APP THAT WILL MONITOR POLICE MISCONDUCT

Birmingham, AL -- In 2017, Maria Watkins, an African American entrepreneur, founded the RightThere Corporation (RTC). The organization was incorporated in 2018 with an exemplary board of directors, including a retired police captain as board chairman. The RightThere Corporation is now among the first to offer a formidable, technological solution for civilians who fear the threat of police misconduct and other potentially dangerous situations.

RightThere Corporation is using technology to accomplish their mission of preventing police misconduct and reducing civil rights violations and to make justice work for all. The African American community has been severely impacted by police misconduct. In the United States, according to an analysis of data from The Guardian on police killings, Black Americans in comparison to their white counterparts, are more likely to be killed by police when unarmed.

RightThere Corporation and its dedicated team of professionals have developed an app that will assist in reducing police misconduct. RTC is awaiting full patent approval. The RTC Protech(TM) app will soon be on Apple and Android devices as well as a wearable device.

AFRICAN AMERICAN BEST-SELLING AUTHOR TO REVEAL HER SECRETS DURING UPCOMING WRITER'S RETREAT

Campton, KY -- 97% percent of writers have an unfinished manuscript or unwritten idea. Fortunately, Dayton-based best-selling author and award-winning publisher, Valerie J. Lewis Coleman, is working to change this statistic by hosting an intimate 3-day retreat for writers and established authors. The "Free Your Mind and the Words Will Follow" Writers Retreat will take place on November 4-6, 2019 at the Cliffview Resort Lodge in Campton, KY.

Valerie comments, "Thousands of extraordinary book concepts never make it past the idea stage because of fear. Prior to working with me, my clients had difficulty finding time to write, or they were bombarded with book ideas and had no clue what to do with them. However, by implementing my strategies, they broke through virtual restrainers to write bestsellers. This retreat allows writers to get away from day-to-day distractions to give full attention to their projects while eliminating fears that hold them hostage."


During the retreat, writers will interact with industry professionals to gain clarity, confidence and focus. Guest facilitator, Tenita C. Johnson, is a best-selling author who transitions writers into experts while positioning them to develop multiple streams of income.

CHICAGO NATIVE VIRAL BLOGGER ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF BLACK WOMEN'S SELF-HELP BOOK, "I LOST ME WHEN I FOUND YOU"

New York, NY --  In her new book, I Lost Me When I Found You: Stop Chasing False Idols and Awaken Your Inner Goddess, Harlem-based author Miss T.N. King uses her own experience with bouts of lackluster personal relationships, workplace drama, and social issues to encourage women to reconnect to their divine identity. But in an age of police brutality, misogyny, #MeToo, and cultural appropriation, how exactly can Black women and women of color nurture their relationship with their Higher Self while also fending off attacks at every angle politically, professionally, and internally?

Have you ever lost yourself? were five simple words that set King on her quest of writing I Lost Me. Feeling alone in her journey as a black woman in New York City's corporate America, King interviewed 50 women across the United States, Africa, and abroad who helped her find solace in sisterhood and support through their stories which also appear in the book. "I was already awakened to my purpose, but in early 2018 I committed to it," shared King in a recent Virtual Book Launch Q&A.

"We all have something in common. Even the woman you hate or shade has something to share, something to teach you because we are all connected." Names of the interviewees have been changed to respect the participants.
