Hi, Everyone,

I'm back again with our new trailer for the anthology, Equality Equality What Do You Think About When You Think of Equality? by Paul Alan Fahey. Hope you like it. Following the trailer is an excerpt of the book's introduction.

And the good news is the e book for Equality is only $2.99 at B and N and Amazon. What a deal, huh? Just saying.

INTRODUCTION

"In the United States and around the globe, we continually observe how easily a click of a mouse or a few strokes on a keypad can send a torrent of hate into the universe.

As recent examples, witness the racial unrest in the U.S., specifically in Ferguson, Missouri, and Baltimore, Maryland; in the determined, frustrated efforts of women and minorities to gain equal pay and opportunity; in immigrants’ fight for due process and human rights; and in the outright bigotry and hatred espoused by one of the candidates embroiled in the recent 2016 U.S. presidential race.

We see this seemingly never-ending struggle to be treated fairly and equally whenever we pick up a newspaper or watch the evening news. The multi-faceted issue of equality is ubiquitous and incredibly relevant.

But what does equality really mean? More important, what does it mean to you?

Webster’s defines equality as “the state of being equal, especially in status, rights, and opportunities.” Extend that and you have issues of equality across a spectrum: racial, social, political, religious, marital, and gender.

Equality in the home, equality in the workplace, and equality in all things legal.

In Equality twenty-five of our best writers, teachers, and activists including Dennis Palumbo, Felice Picano, David Congalton, Michael Nava, Catherine Ryan Hyde, Anne R. Allen, Barbara Abercrombie, and Victoria Zackheim, examine their views on equality in all its definitions, permutations, and possibilities, yet always in deeply personal and intimate ways. Each essay in this book is a unique exploration of what equality means to them."

I hope this little snippet and trailer have intrigued you.

What do you think about when you think of equality?

I'd love to know. Feel free to comment and let's get a dialogue going.

The best is yet to come!

Paul
