Come out for a book signing (Meet & Greet) with Author Janell Pearson, “For the Strength of Harlem- Plĕas Tusant Pearson.”

For the Strength of Harlem is a Biography Memoir about Mr. Plĕas Tusant Pearson (pronounced Plĕz), he was a Community Activist and Serial Entrepreneur. Two United States Presidents’ sons contacted him for his support; he also owned a private limousine service for the Apollo Theatre. This is a new memoir, you will learn about another hidden figure, an unsung hero in history.

For those who are asking, “Who is that man in the middle of Muhammad Ali and Malcolm X in the historic photograph taken by Howard Bingham in 1963?”

Make no mistake, he was an “unsung hero” not because he was seen in a photograph with these two great men but because of his enduring actions to stand up for Black people during the most challenging times in America.
