-- Kharis Publishing is proud to announce the release of My people, My People, My God!
as a paean, an object of worship to the Most High God. Through poetry, short stories, and essays, Rev. Donald L. Marbury addresses a myriad of subjects and issues – many of them ugly, disputatious, controversial and daunting. Nonetheless, they speak to our common, human life experiences. While much of his writing is rooted in the African American experience, his soul-stirring offerings transcend race, culture and class. As Rev. Grainger, Senior Pastor of Ebenezer AME Church, Fort Washington, Maryland, noted recently in his review of the work, "This book is a profoundly introspective and unconventional poetic account of the pilgrimage of a poor, little asthmatic black boy from the Hill District of Pittsburgh to the corridors of America's most hallowed, powerful and elite institutions, and of the people met along the way, the challenges faced and over-come. Moreover, it is about the love, grace and mercy of the God who was always with him and who waited patiently on him to answer his call to ministry. My People, My People, My God is a spiritual, historical, sociological and racial American jazz exhortation from which the reader/hearer will be transported to empathic, immutable, soaring flight."My People, My people, My God!
