Race Relations In America - New Book By Y Abrahaim Features Forbidden Interracial Relationship During The Montgomery Bus Boycott

Abrahaim creates inspirational literature that gives readers a new sense of awareness about the world around them

The struggle for racial equality dominates the headlines today, perhaps as much as it did in the days of the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Sixty years later the struggle for equality continues; which unfortunately appears to be as distant as it was in the days of old. The lack of equality has compelled many to bring attention  to this plague and the effects it has had on this great country. 

Whoopi Goldberg, Karlyn Bowman, and Barack Obama have come forward  edifying the need for change with race relations in America; illustrating  how the lack of equality breads lack of  appreciation of life which caused the massacre in North Carolina and the death of Emmitt Till  - two separate instances occurring 60 years apart.

Whoppi Goldberg has stepped out to develop a movie about Emmitt Louis Till. In 1955 Till was found in the Tallahatchie River, barbed wire tied around his neck. Till had been beaten to death and shot for flirting with a white woman. Whoopi Goldberg believes this story needs to be engraved in the minds of all Americans.

Karlyn Bowman graphically illustrated on the Forbes website the differences held by blacks and whites in the United States in today’s society. Bowman’s extensive study does show improvement however also displays areas where considerable work on race relations in America prove to be necessary.

On the USA Today website, in a piece about Obama's eulogy at Rev. Clementa Pinckney's funeral in Charleston SC, President Obama's message, in which he stated "We don't need more talk," Obama was praised for his exceptionally moving words about the issue of race in America.

Y. Abrahaim's recently released inspirational novel, 'Travesty - A Love Story' weaves a tale around race relations in America during the Montgomery Bus Boycott, which took place over the course of one year ending on December, 1956. 'Travesty' relates to the tale of a forbidden interracial relationship during the boycott which lead to lies, treachery and murder.  The story is told by a young Klansman who, 40 years later, has to explain his involvement in this murder that occurred 40 years earlier in his life. The case laid cold for 40 years until evidence from an unknown witness surfaces, forcing those involved to bring closure to the family of this young woman who was brutally murdered. Through the discoveries surrounding this case reveals the truth behind a murder that rocked the lives of all involved.

"I wrote this book," Abrahaim stated, "to show how life can be depreciated through a travesty. How a life can no longer matter because of the hate caused by a travesty. Consider the definition of the word “travesty” which is “a false representation; distorted or debased version of something.” When you consider this fact you realize the cause behind race relations in America today being the result of a 'travesty'.”

This book depicts a “travesty” through the eyes of a young Klansman who discovers the travesty surrounding his life, and through this discovery, he realizes the love and meaning behind his life is just that . . . a travesty. This realization derives through the most unexpected individual; a young African American woman. Through the realization of this “travesty” a life is taken, and through that other lives are destroyed. 40 years later he now has to confront the reason behind this life lost, and bring clarity to his role in the murder that rocked the lives of all involved.

A prolific writer, Abrahaim has also recently released 'Real Women Pray', a combination of prayers and poems that uplift, motivate and inspire women of all ages. Other works currently in production include:

'Memoirs of Capitol Hill: Capitol Hill, The President And Me'. The first in a four volume series, the storyline details an exclusive interview with a retired Secret Service agent who reveals an unprecedented friendship, and thus, creates  an unlikely one. Through this interview the two discover the “what” that was lacking in their lives, while creating a memoir expounding on the life of the most controversial President to have ever been inaugurated into the White House.

'The King And I: Emmanuel: A musical that talks about the life of a King through the eyes of those who knew Him as Emmanuel, and were touched by Him as Jesus Christ.

'The Sacrifice', In which The Law of Free-Will creates a battle zone within the Universe between good and evil over what we know as Earth.

"Race relations in America will only improve when the perception about race relations in America improve through the eyes of the American people," Abrahaim concluded. "It saddens me to see unjustifiable murders of African Americans which clearly exhibit; African Americans hold the same status and are perceived in the same way as they were before and during the Civil Rights Movement. This illustrates the power behind a 'travesty; how it can very well outshine even visual evidence of accomplishments by the different races in this country; especially accomplishments between blacks and whites in this country."
