...Melody Ellison's story details her as a 9-year-old growing up in Detroit during the 1960s civil rights era. She loves to sing and uses her voice to help make a difference, the report notes.

Melody's price tag starts at about $115, but if you want her recording studio and all her other accessories, the price will be almost $900.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
