Interview with Author Marianne Modica on the topic of Colorism in America today

I had the pleasure of meeting Marianne Modica, author of The R Word. She is an Assistant Professor in Early Childhood Education at Valley Forge Christian College. Her book focuses on exploring contemporary attitudes about race and stimulating discussions about present-day racial inequality on a structural level. As I was very interested in reading her book, The R Word, Marianne seemed to have shared a similar interest in reading my novel, Color Struck, which explores the concept of colorism from a young adult perspective. We became "instant" contacts and she was gracious enough to interview me for her blog: R is for Race. Honored by the invitation, I am pleased to share with you the link to read the interview, and also introduce you to Marianna's mission & purpose.

Pamela Tuck participates in Pine Forge "No Place for Hate" re-designation assembly

All school visits are special to me and I really enjoy connecting with my targeted audience. But being able to contribute to a school's mission and purpose to encourage students in the area of "teaching tolerance" was a unique and memorable moment for me. I was invited to attend Pine Forge Elementary School to help celebrate their "No Place for Hate" re-designation. This school was presented their 8th banner, which demonstrates their continual efforts in maintaining a "No Place for Hate" environment. It was a pleasure to witness and share The Adventure of Sheldon, the Mushroom & As Fast As Words Could Fly as reinforcing tools.
