Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Zion Hill is the collective reflections of two African -American men, Marvin Kingston Williams and Henry-Ray “Jack” Jackson, who grew up in the traditional African -American church. They are childhood friends who grow up in Mississippi during the 1960’s and 1970’s. After leaving Mississippi, each man comes into his own sense of self worth on his own journey. College for one, a stint in the army for the other, bi-sexuality, AIDS, abortions and a failed marriage all converge to shape the lives of these two men. Jack, and eventually Marvin, finally find that his redemption, hopes, and dreams, respectively, are actualized through the faith first nurtured by the institution of the church that they originally shunned. Although these prodigal sons make their way through very different, often often-tortured routes, they discover that they can attain satisfaction and peace in their lives and loves.

Secret of Research 2022In life things are not always as they appear.The research community views the vast majority of the researchers as honest, giving, devoted scientist, most of whom are.This is a story of two that have no clue as to the meaning of any of these qualities:Honest: If they can get away with it, so what if it takes a little lie?Giving: Sure, as long as they are the recipients. Devoted: By all means to the all mighty dollar. It is hard to comprehend anyone with such wonderful families could be so using, abusing and deceptive as these two Doctors. For years the two have used their positions in the research community to offer help to those with money and wish to start a family and for some reason are unable to conceive. For the right price they will help them, if things go wrong, so what. That's how it is with black market procedures preformed in a research lab, no matter how elegant they have made it. The customer has no-one to turn to if things go wrong. They are so intent upon doing others in, that they have forgotten one very important fact in business: `Be careful who you trust.' With the government moving in on them they have no clue as to who the true informant is.We can only hope they get what they deserve in the end!
