FROM THE PUBLISHER
Former Clinton diarist, Janis F. Kearney, pens a biography that is part historical narrative and part oral history. In 2001, Kearney began a journey, seeking black American's stories about the south that shaped a man and a leader such as William Jefferson Clinton; and memories about the Man, from those who knew him. Over a two year span she collected conversations, memories, stories with men and women from across the country. These conversations, and a carefully painted abstract of the pre-civil rights Arkansas that Bill Clinton called home; are the centerpieces of this biography.

Conversations, includes rare and unheard voices of black Americans speaking candidly about America's 42nd President. Their memories, stories and thoughts on William J. Clinton, the man, the president and the enigma offer unique and rare pictures of Bill Clinton and his role in American history. Interviews include: former President William J. Clinton; former Transportation Secretary Rodney Slater, U.S. Congressman John Lewis; NFPW Founder and President Dorothy Height; Baseball Great Hank Aaron; former city mayors Marc Morial, of New Orleans; Wellington Webb, of Denver; Bill Campbell, of Atlanta; Pulitzer Prize winning author David Levering, of Rutgers University; Harvard Sociologist and professor, William Julius Wilson, and many more.
 
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Arkansas native Janis F. Kearney, a writer, lecturer and oral historian proudly describes herself as an Arkansas sharecropper's daughter. She grew up in the southeast Arkansas delta in a family of 17 children. In love with writing since childhood, she met and worked with newspaper publisher and civil rights legend Daisy Gatson Bates; becoming publisher of the award-winning Arkansas State Press Newspaper, in 1987. Kearney made history in 1995 when she became President William Jefferson Clinton's personal diarist, serving in that role for more than five years.
