Filled with a diverse array of quotes from Jacqueline RhinehartPlato to Malcolm X to Common, with scripture mixed in for good measure, MY ORGANIC SOUL draws from the moral fruits of the past and blends them brilliantly with the street philosophies of today to reach a 21st-century audience who is wandering, seeking, and in need of discovering the answer to one of life's ultimate questions, "Who am I?"

Rhinehart is the president and founder of Organic Soul Multicultural Marketing, Inc., a firm that integrates entertainment concepts into creative marketing and branding opportunities. She is a masterful omni-media strategist, creating, developing, and implementing memorable campaigns in the music, entertainment, and lifestyle industries having worked in the music industry for nearly twenty-five years at major record labels including Arista, Mercury, and Universal. Rhinehart has recognized the importance of journaling since age eleven. "It has always been my suspicion that people who say that they don't talk to themselves cannot fully be trusted-trusted to know the motivation, the why of their actions." She continues by explaining, "Our knowledge is developed through listening. But not only listening to what others say, but by listening to what we say to ourselves." The former marketing executive has always felt the power of music. "I believe that music is the language that gives man insight to a higher consciousness. It is through these words and other unforgettable quotations that we can express ourselves, and fully understand who we are."
Rhinehart joins an impressive list of authors from diverse backgrounds whose book signings have been held at CAAM, including then-Senator Barack Obama, sports hero Kareem Abdul Jabar, the late novelist Bebe Moore Campbell and civil rights leader Dorothy Height.
CAAM"The mission of the California African American Museum is to research, collect, preserve and interpret for public enrichment, the history, art and culture of African Americans," explains Charmaine Jefferson, executive director of CAAM.
