“You Can’t Get There From Here”
The explosive book by Vernice Watson with Milton B. Allen is a historical and entertaining account of a dynamic, colorful, Black female promotional executive’s 25 years in a world of glitz, glamour, dirt—and soul. From Baltimore to Nashville to Hollywood and back again, Vernice Watson’s story enlightens the reader about music radio and deejays from brazen days of payola to Kweisi Mfume’s rise from local radio to international leadership, to the Winans’ and gospel music’s “crossover” into mainstream markets.
Additionally, Watson provides fodder for gospel groupies and fans of everyone from Shirley Caesar to Whitney Houston’s “True Voice,” as the author chronicles the rise and near fall of her own career at the hands of corporate “giant,” AT&T.
