9781420893601: American Caldron: A Collection of Short Stories and Articles

This collection of short stories and essays goes back to 1952 when the story, "Occupational Hazard" was published by Decade of Short Stories, a little magazine at Canoga Park, California. "Majority At Sea," a short story was published by The Crisis Magazine of the NAACP in 1968. The latest story, "The Marine" was published in 2004 by AIM AIM-America's Intercultural Magazine at Maywood, Illinois. Included are some stories which are published here for the first time. The story "The $4.50 Brief Case," was published by The Labor Paper at Racine, Wisconsin in 2003. The essay, "The Folklore of Preferential Treatment," was mentioned by Coretta Scott King in her syndicated newspaper column in 1985. Smallwood read this in the Detroit Free Press, a copy of which students at Wayne State University in Detroit, put on the bulletin board. Ms. King''s column was titled, "It's a bit late to protest preferential treatment." My essay "The Folklore of Preferential Treatment," was presented to plant managers and other executives at the Ford Motor Company's World Headquarters at Dearborn, Michigan at a luncheon meeting. This same essay was published with other essays by the Michigan Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights under the title: "Michigan Consultation: Focus on Affirmative Action in 1998." It was presented in 1996 at the Westin Hotel, Renaissance Center, Detroit, Michigan to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, Regional Office, Chicago, Illinois. Two other essays were responses to reports from the Bureau Of Urban Affairs in New York and the Comptroller General's, General Accounting Office Report. At the time Smallwood was the Civil Rights & Urban Affairs Director at the regional office in New York of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. In 2001 1st Books Library, now AuthorHouse, published Smallwood's novel, The Right and The Left, a burlesque of the National Labor Relations Board.
