Wanda Madison’s son, Henry, was a twenty-year-old college student when he was wrongfully accused of murdering a fellow student during a brawl on the campus of a prominent HBCU. Henry proclaimed his innocence from day one and she stood by his side. She watched in disbelief as they threatened potential witnesses, coerced witness statements and, committed perjury for the sake of a conviction. Wanda was appalled at the level of corruption she witnessed that began at the top!


Melinda Robertson is an author and activist, born and raised in Washington, D.C. Her experience as a teen mother compelled her to write her first novel, “Motherhood… What You Don’t Know!” (2005). In 2016, Robertson’s then twenty-year-old son, in his THIRD year of college, was falsely accused and wrongfully incarcerated for stabbing a student to death during a brawl on the campus of a prominent HBCU. Robertson vowed to never stop fighting for his Freedom. She wrote about it in her fourth book, “The AboveGround Railroad,” (2018) written to expose America’s “unfair and unjust” criminal justice system.

Food Addiction: The Struggle Has Been Real

by Noreen Henry

I was ashamed of the relationship I had developed with food. I had used food for comfort. God nudged me and let me know that it is safe to come out of hiding. My prayer is that as you read my story, you will be empowered to overcome your struggles.

Food Addiction: The Struggle Has Been Real is more than a book about addiction to food, it is a record of the struggle that has taken me from the place of slavery, led me through the desert, and the account of me triumphing towards the promised land. I was a slave to food, my feelings, and my weight. I wrote this book to start a conversation about a silent epidemic that is plaguing our nation (and the world really).
