Stegomyia: The Story of My Life
There’s No Shortcut to the American Dream
Growing up in a small village in Nigeria, William Adeniyi knew that his opportunities in life would be limited unless he was relentless in his pursuit of education. The death of his father left William, his sister, and their mother in financial straits. Despite that, William’s mother was dedicated to her children’s schooling…until she too died, leaving William an orphan at a crucial juncture of his life. Stegomyia is the story of how William overcame seemingly insurmountable personal and financial challenges to graduate from Titcombe College, the prestigious high school run by Canadians and Americans of the Sudan Interior Mission, and his subsequent academic career in America as a student and then as a professor at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. From the perils of Nigeria’s political bloodbath to the frustrations of immigration to America, from bullies in elementary school to racist colleagues in the US, from despair when everything was taken from him to dawning hope thanks to helping hands from people who believed in William’s future, this memoir is a compelling chronicle of a life lived in defiance of the odds. A clear-eyed, honest assessment of what it means to embrace the American Dream, Stegomyia is both inspirational and cautionary, an epic true story of determination and hard work.

When you combine the strength of diversity and inclusion in America, the best people with innovative ideas can truly shine in the most powerful country in the world!
Greg “Coach T” Thomas and David Smale’s “Race In America: A Call To Heal.” It’s not a black and white issue; it’s an issue of the heart. Racism is an issue that is older than the United States itself and it still exists today. It might be better than it was 50 years ago but it’s still very real. It’s not a skin-color issue. It’s not an economic issue. It’s not a geographic issue. Those things are not the root of the problem.
Jacob Singer’s “The Vase with the Many Coloured Marbles.” Emmy was born Emily Kleintjies into the Coloured community of South Africa, which was discriminated against by the racial apartheid laws that became stricter with the election of Hendrik Verwoerd as Prime Minister. Emily, as a young Coloured girl, looked more like a WHITE (European) than a Coloured. Growing up, she found that she could ignore the ‘WHITES ONLY’ signs on benches, restaurants and beaches around Cape Town, without anyone challenging her.
