Book Signing at Macon-Middle Georgia Greek Expo

From Left to Right, Alex Habersham, Publisher of the Macon-Middle Georgia Black Pages receives a copy of Freaknik Lawyer from the author Harold Michael Harvey.

Harold Michael Harvey addresses the prestigious Business/Consumer Expo on August 29, 2019, at the Le Piada Event Center, 4295 Interstate Drive, Macon, Georgia. The program begins at 6:00 pm and ends at 9:00 pm.

Following Harvey’s presentation, he will autograph his third book, Freaknik Lawyer: A Memoir on the Craft of Resistance.

Habersham and Harvey go back a long way. In his memoir, Harvey recounts the day Habersham offered him a job as managing editor of The Macon Courier.

“Alex was my first professional publisher. I remember the day he offered me a job editing his newspaper. I’ve been writing ever since then,” Harvey said.

In Fifty-four thousand words, Harvey masterfully weaves his life and our collective lives around the world of legal segregation and the aftermath of the apparent demise of “separate but equal.” He does this by introducing the reader to two new concepts: The Curse of Plessy and The Promise of Brown.
