Linda had the pleasure of attending the party given for Ponchitta Pierce at the beautiful home of Patsy Kahn to celebrate the launch of Keep Going No Matter What The Reginald F. Lewis Legacy: 20 Years Later, by Loida Nicolas Lewis, with Ponchitta Pierce, communications expert and author, who interviewed the distinguished and successful people featured in the book. Book Marketing International produced Keep Going No Matter What as a self-published book and an eBook, marking the 25th anniversary of the first African-American to purchase and run a billion dollar company, Beatrice International Foods. Appropriate, as this month is Black History Month.
