He was an adjunct professor of government at Concordia University. He is also the author of the book Global Warming…Really? — a “book of the week” selection by the Conservative Monitor website.

Project 21, a leading voice of black conservatives for over 25 years, is sponsored by the National Center for Public Policy Research. Its members have been quoted, interviewed or published over 40,000 times since the program was created in 1992. Contributions to the National Center are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated, and may be earmarked exclusively for the use of Project 21.
