Houma, Louisiana May 23, 2012 Entertainment News(PRLEAP.COM) "My Life in Louisiana", a new book by Hazel M. Boykin, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.
"My Life in Louisiana" chronicles Hazel Boykin's own efforts throughout the Civil Rights Movement to create a better world for future generations of African Americans.

Her inspirational story serves as a testament to what we, as individuals, can accomplish with a passionate heart and a strong will to change the world.
