Hush Money

Presented in partnership with Madison College, Jacquie Abram discusses her new book, HUSH MONEY, and the real life experiences that helped her create the story. All Ebony ever wanted was a chance to live the American Dream. But for someone who was living in poverty, struggling financially, and finding it hard to make ends meet, the dream was more like a fantasy with no hope of becoming a reality. That is, until the day Ebony got a job with an organization, after years of working dead end jobs, that put her one step closer to living the American Dream. But her dream quickly turned into a nightmare when she became a victim of systemic racism in employment, was stripped of all dignity, confidence, and strength, and was left with three impossible choices: suffering in silence to keep her job, resigning to keep her sanity, or waiting to be unjustly fired. Or is there a fourth path? And does Ebony have the strength to follow it?

Before Jacquie began her journey as an Author and DEI and Antiracism Consultant, she had a career in higher education that she was very good at and that she enjoyed. A career that paid her a lucrative income which, as a single mother of two girls, was the only income that allowed her to not only provide for her family, but also to pay her bills. A career that spanned nearly two decades and by any measure should’ve been a successful career. But it wasn’t.
