Who owns the Harlem Renaissance?

Posted by Turtel Onli on June 22, 2018 at 8:26am 0 Comments

Who owns the rights to most of the material, books, and music, and  posters sold to school systems annually to expouse the values of the "Harlem Renaissance"?

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
