For her forthcoming highly-anticipated book "TAKE US FORWARD: The Laws of the New Game,” San Francisco Bay Area practicing attorney-turned-social entrepreneur Dr. Raye Mitchell—as co-author and editor—assembled an impressive group of innovators and experts to share what it takes to be a game changer, and make breakthrough impacts. Crystal Lucas-Perry, creator of the Obama song and video-gone-viral "Take Us Forward," and veteran ad woman and icon Carol H. Williams, President, CEO and Chief Creative Officer of Carol H. Williams Advertising Agency are among the eminent contributors to the book project, which benefits educational programs for youth of color. The authors, who draw from diverse racial and cultural backgrounds nationwide, united to make a difference.
"TAKE US FORWARD: The Laws of the New Game Changers - How to make breakthrough impacts strong enough for men, but made by women" is a non-fiction, ‘how-to, can do, and will-do’ literary offering that helps its readers create transformations. The book is based on real life experiences on what it takes to be a game changer and is meant to encourage innovation and develop leadership skills for the reader. “The book delivers a collective message for everyone, but helps women and girls discover new possibilities in achieving success," commented co-author, Kathy Murphy, Ph.D.
"I was unable to contribute financially to support President Obama’s presidential campaign, so instead I created a song to help make an impact and it has since gone viral on the Internet," said Crystal Lucas Perry. "Crystal has not yet received the call from President Obama, inviting her to perform her song "Take Us Forward" at the White House, and we've not received any calls from movie producers (yet), but, you never know!" Dr. Mitchell stated.
