Let a New Woman Rise author is being heralded as this Millennium's 'Nikki Giovanni'


Springfield, MO (BlackNews.com) - 4465 PReSS, a new online publisher of multicultural fiction and non-fiction book titles, has just released Let a New Woman Rise - a poetry primer by the acclaimed poetess, Barbara Haskins.

Haskins, credited for bringing the Kwanzaa holiday celebration to Queens, New York over 25 years ago, has been heralded by legions of cult fans as the 'Nikki Giovanni' of the New Millennium.

The significance of Haskins' presence at the recent American Booksellers' convention in New York City was evidenced by the overwhelming demand for signed copies of her current book by distributors and competing authors, alike.

Let A New Woman Rise is featured in the concurrent edition of the New York Amsterdam News. Writer L. Nzinga Strickland has devoted upwards of an entire page of the prestigious African-American newspaper to discuss and revere this unique body of literary work; as well as expound upon the newsworthy achievements of Ms. Haskins.

In addition to being a poetess, Barbara Haskins (also known as Barbara Scott) is a public speaker and educator. Her commitment to preserve African-American self esteem is apparent through her countless array of cumulative, civic and political citations.

Let a New Woman Rise is Ms. Haskins' first published poetry collection.

Born in Hot Springs, Virginia, Haskins now lives in New York City. Her legacy includes two married children and two grandchildren.





4465 PReSS is a wholly owned subsidiary of barrendau LLC and 4465 Media. www.4465press.com
