What We Blacks Need To Do Part 2
by James Jerome Hankins

This book was written for all readers from eight to 128 years young, located in all fifty states, D.C and beyond. I took microscopic looks at many of the problems we face every day and/or seasons. Those in education, religion, family, jobs, discrimination, and politics. Many of us, good people, know our strong and weak habits and are trying hard to change our negatives to positives. Please consider a few suggestions in this book that my parents taught me and I believe will help you. This truncated Black encyclopedia will help them start or become a big part of their home library that will last for years!!!

My name is James Jerome Hankins. My mother, Faldenia, an AMEZ teacher gave me my first name James after St. James who said” if you have faith but don’t do any work to help others, you are “nothing”. My father, Edward, a Catholic barber gave me my middle name Jerome after St. Jerome who translated the bible from Greek to Latin and is the patron saint of writers. My last name, Hankins, came from my brave slave ancestor, “American Hero” Abraham Galloway. My cousin Abraham Galloway lived only 33 years (1837-1870) but he accomplished so much for our people. His country treated him as a 3rd class piece of property, but he like Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, Medgar, Martin and Malcom refused to bow and worship a man -made golden idol. My education started at St. Thomas Catholic private elementary school in Wilmington, NC to Shawtown High school in Lillington, NC to Williston Senior High in Wilmington, NC to North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, NC. I have written guest commentary in three great black newspapers, Wilmington Journal, Greater Diversity and The County News. I also post on Facebook at least three times a month. This is my second book. I have served as an Estate Administrator, power of attorney for a family friend, caregiver and court appointed guardian. Last but not least I have been a 98% voter, volunteer register and precinct official in my Democratic party.
