GTM Named One of Top Ten Black Books of 2009

We'd taken a hiatus for a few weeks, but we're back with great news -- first the latest from "Inside Black Hollywood Magazine" - a story that cites "Go, Tell Michelle: African American Women Write the New First Lady" as number six on the list of the top ten Black Books for 2009. This list was compiled by critic Kam Williams. Williams was the first critic to write a review of "Go, Tell Michelle" in January 2009. He is a member of the New York Film Critics Online, Rotten Tomatoes, the African-American Film Critics Association, and the NAACP Image Awards Nominating Committee.

To quote the author of the list, Williams says "This opus is a collection of letters of support for Michelle Obama designed as a way “to send her a special message, grounded in our common ancestry and in the belief that our daughters have not only been inspired by her accomplishments but empowered by her example.” The assorted missives amount to a quite evocative collage of heartfelt correspondence in poetry and prose ranging from the intimate to the light and lyrical."

You can check out the list of the Top Ten yourself by going to the website. Please pass this news on to friends and family!
