Veteran, award winning journalist, author and biographer, Betty DeRamus, explains the following about her writing: “Usually somebody tells me a story. That’s where some of my best ideas have come from, I’ve heard something and it caught my attention.” The life of Professor Mursalata Muhammad’s inventor grandfather, Claude Harvard, is the subject of Deramus’ latest biography. DeRamus visits campus this week for their first in-person meeting since DeRamus secured a publisher for the biography tentatively titled: The African American Inventor Who “Educated” Henry Ford.
