CLARKSDALE – Mark your calendars for a forthcoming book signing hosted at Coahoma Community College Wednesday, Nov. 18.

C:\fakepath\Sullivan2.jpgCCC’s Division of Enrollment and Student Services Career Services has organized a book signing with Dr. Otha Sullivan at 10 a.m. in the Career Services Center, located on the second floor of the Zee A. Barron Student Union.

Sullivan, a retired educator, is the author of six books. His latest work, “African American Achievement Stamped Through History”, co-authored with Chuckie Patrick, highlights the significant contributions that African-Americans featured on U.S. postage stamps have made towards the development of the nation.

“We are honored to have Dr. Sullivan on our campus, and we invite everyone, especially our students, to join us as he shares his wisdom and knowledge,” said Trina Cox, CCC coordinator of career services and placement.

A Mississippi native, Byram taught in the Detroit Public School System, where he also served as an administrator and guidance counselor. He also taught at Howard University and Alcorn State University.

Patrick was a former student of Sullivan’s at Alcorn who shared a loved for stamp collecting.

Those who purchase a book will be entered into a drawing to win a rare Booker T. Washington and George Washington Carver silver half-dollar from the 1940’s, valued at $35.

To purchase an advanced copy of Sullivan’s book for $29.95, see Karen Done or Carolyn Hunter on the second floor of the Zee A. Barron Student Union.
