NEW: Marquis Who’s Who Legacy Biography Press Release – 2016

I like to call this my Legacy Biography. It will be on the web forever, and it’s pretty comprehensive. Even my friends may find out some things about me they didn’t know, though much is still left on the sidelines and in books. But for an overview, this is pretty extensive. Thanks to Marquis Who’s Who for coming out with this new system of Press Releases of its biographees.

It begins:

RALEIGH, NC, August 18, 2016, Margaret A. Harrell has been included in Marquis Who’s Who in the World, in America, in American Art, and in American Women. As in all Marquis Who’s Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Passionate for literature, talented in writing and skilled in photography, Ms. Harrell has been making the world a lot more creative and artistic since beginning her career in 1965. Along the way, she has been the onsite moderator for a Ford Foundation-funded course in Greek classics in four African American high schools and universities in Mississippi and Louisiana, taught, using Telstar 2 and other long-range technology, by well-known Columbia University classics professor, Moses Hadas, in 1963, at the height of resistance to desegregation; an instructor of dance; an assistant to UVA dream expert and parapsychologist, Dr. Robert Van de Castle; a guest lecturer at the Lucian Blaga University (Sibiu, Romania); a private meditation and energywork teacher for LuminEssence (light body studies founded by Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer), including an instructor for Light Body Consciousness. She has also served as an Assistant Editor at United Feature Syndicate (home to Snoopy and Superman comics), a copy editor/assistant editor for Random House, where she worked on books of famous or to-be famous people, such as NBC anchor Chet Huntley (“The Huntley-Brinkley Report”), and best sellers including Hell’s Angels by Gonzo journalist, Hunter S. Thompson. Living in Belgium she organized United States and Indian workshops and was for five years the international editing coordinator of the Het Toreke Museum exhibit on the Life and Works of Flemish poet Jan Mensaert. And she is a cofounder of the Kayumari spiritual community in California. (Continue reading here about my life, my philosophy, to what I attribute my luck or success, etc.)
