C&B Books Presents Baba Evans Moore

Baba Evans Moore attended the Chicago Theological Seminary on a John Haynes Holmes Fellowship. After graduating, he served three years as a Unitarian minister and an active member of The Chicago Center for Black Religious Studies. He eventually left All Souls Unitarian Church after deciding his ministry was on the streets of Chicago and not limited to the walls of his Church.

Baba’s social conscious guided him through the Civil Rights Movement of the turbulent Sixties and Seventies, where he worked with members of the three major youth gangs in Chicago in a program called, “LSD: Lords, Stones and Disciples”.
His work in Chicago completed, Baba relocated to Atlanta, to pursue the entrepreneurial life. He partnered with a famous entertainer and formed B&E Petroleum, a successful oil company. On the heels of his business success, Baba found himself advising local Black business owners how to become minority suppliers to get their piece of the American Pie.
When economic opportunities favored a move from Atlanta, Baba chose Washington, D.C. as his new home. He became Chief of Staff to the senior member on the D.C. Board of Education and later D.C. Public School’s Parent Involvement Coordinator. Always the community activist, Baba felt a deep need to respond to D.C.’s street violence and growing problems in the district’s schools. That response inspired his writing career, compelling him to write about the many social issues facing poor peoples in the nation’s capital. Eventually, he applied lessons from his experiences in Chicago and chose to contribute to the community as an educator, literacy advocate and community activist.
Baba Evans Moore lives in Maryland and is Parent Educator for the Toyota Family Literacy Program in a D.C. elementary school.

An Extra Ordinary Affair

An Extra Ordinary Affair
Retail Price:$15.00
C&B Price: $14.00


Book Description
Award-winning author Baba Evans Moore, of An Extra Ordinary Affair has done it again -- created a thought-provoking, entertaining and memorable book. This novel is centered on its protagonist Siobhan persevering through pain, hopelessness and bitterness as a result of bad relationship experiences to eventually rise above these issues and embrace a more rewarding and fulfilled life. Although this novel is not considered Christian fiction, it sure brought to my remembrance the scripture Psalm 30:5 (KJV)…weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning and that blessings come when we least expect them. As usual, Moore’s character development is great and the storyline was one that I thoroughly enjoyed from the beginning until the end. An Extra Ordinary Affair is a worthwhile read and I look forward in the future to reading many more books by this gifted author.
