Author  Fernando “Fernan” Hernández.

The Cubans: Our Legacy in the United States chronicles the Cuban immigration to the United States from the 1800s to the present era. The author analyzes the impact the Cuban community has had on the cultural, economic, social, sports, and political scene in American society throughout multiple generations. Cuban immigrants have been one of the most successful communities in the United States. The book examines the contribution to baseball from Martín Dihigo to Tony Pérez and from Ernesto Lecuona to Gloria Estefan in music. In business circles the reader will discover that The Coca Cola Company, the Kellogg Company and McDonalds Corporation had Cuban-born Chief Executive Officers and that Movado watch company was owned by a refugee who fled communist Cuba. The book vividly depicts more than 250 extraordinary and intriguing men and women that make for engrossing and captivating reading. This informative and insightful work is highly recommended for Cuban-Americans, all Latinos and for those who enjoy reading about successful and trailblazing new Americans. Honoring his roots, the author goes on a journey traveling from years past to the present time. While reading the pages I found dedication, precise statistics, as well as stories that come alive of a great number of people that forced by destiny had to redirect their lives. These are the Cuban immigrants, some exiled by force, others born of these exiled people. Julie Pujol-Karel, Poet, Texas.

 

O.J. is Innocent and I Can Prove It

Author William C. Dear
The shocking truth about the murders of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman.
Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman were brutally murdered at Nicole’s home on Bundy Drive in Brentwood, California, on the night of June 12, 1994. The weeks and months that followed were full of spectacle, including a much-watched car chase and the eventual arrest of O. J. Simpson for the murders. The televised trial that followed was unlike any that the nation had ever seen. Long convinced of O. J.’s guilt, the world was shocked when the jury of the “trial of the century” read the verdict of not guilty. To this day, the LAPD, Los Angeles District Attorney’s office, mainstream media, and much of the world at large remain firmly convinced that O. J. Simpson literally got away with murder. According to private investigator William Dear, it is precisely this assuredness that has led both the police and public to overlook a far more likely suspect. Dear now compiles more than sixteen years of investigation by his team of forensic experts and presents evidence that O. J. was not the killer. In O. J. is Innocent and I Can Prove It, Dear makes the controversial but compelling case that it was, in fact, the “overlooked suspect,” O. J.’s eldest son Jason, who committed the grisly murders. Sure to stir the pot and raise some eyebrows, this book is a must-read. 50 color illustrations
