Call in number: (646) 381-4198

Our December radio show guest is Zondra Hughes author of “Living the Ebony Life: E-Mails from the Plantation” This candid book was difficult to put down. I purchased and completed it in two days.

Zondra will discuss her book “Living the Ebony Life: E-Mails from the Plantation.”

The book delivers a hilarious narrative, backed by authentic e-mails, memos, and grainy ‘surveillance’ photos, of the outrageous office politics that turned a dream job at the No. 1 magazine in Black America into a living nightmare.

I purchased the book and once I started reading, I couldn’t put it down. It was a hoot!

I finished reading the book in two days and admit to highlighting many passages.
