Jacqueline Rhinehart

CAAM will Present Author in Book Signing and Q&A with
Ruth Adkins Robinson, Music Historian and TV Writer/Producer
for the Debut Publication of MY ORGANIC SOUL

(New York, NY - March 3, 2009) -- The California African American Museum (CAAM) will present author Jacqueline Rhinehart in discussion Jacqueline Rhinehartwith Ruth Adkins Robinson, music historian, TV writer/producer and associate curator of the CAAM as part of the National Women's History Month Celebration on Sunday, March 15, 2009 at 3:00 P.M. Rhinehart will discuss her debut book, MY ORGANIC SOUL: From Plato to Creflo, Emerson to MLK, Jesus to Jay-Z-A Journal to Help You Discover Yourself Through Words of Wisdom from Visionaries Past and Present (Broadway Books), a collection of inspirational quotes from today and yesterday.

MY ORGANIC SOUL is a journal, gift book, and guide to self-discovery for the hip-hop generation and beyond. 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?" MY ORGANIC SOUL has received rave reviews and has been featured in such media outlets as ESSENCE, EBONY, UPTOWN, Upscale, Sister 2 Sister, Heart & Soul, Precious Times, AOL Black Voices and numerous others.

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. "Ms. Rhinehart's multicultural examination of the spiritual links among us all is a platform for a stimulating discussion and enhances our efforts to deliver new insights to everyone who comes to CAAM."

Rhinehart will also participate as a panelist at a seminar focusing on "Women Who Rule" at The Urban Network Entertainment and Marketing Summit on Thursday, March 12. The four-day event will be held at the Pacific Palms Resort in Industry Hills, California from March 11 through 14. In addition to the informative and topical seminar sessions that are offered providing attendees with information on a diverse array of entertainment industry-related topics, The Urban Network Summit weekend will include an awards gala honoring Berry Gordy's career achievements in tribute to Motown's year-long 50th Anniversary Celebration, a special dinner hosted by acclaimed actor Danny Glover in association with the Black Filmmakers Hall of Fame, a celebrity golf tournament, as well as numerous live music performances.
