Dr. Neil Shulman, CCAS BA ’67, co-author of the novel, What? Dead…Again?, and a civil rights activist who works to minimize economic disparities in the American population, has released a new novel. The book, entitled The Corporate Kid, is currently being produced as a movie by Marlon Campbell.
Dr. Shulman is working to ensure that his novel and the yet-to-be-released move adaptation will help support his work in bridging the economic gap between the “haves” and the “have-nots”. He hopes the message of his work will coincide with the movement surrounding the recent fiftieth anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech.
Dr. Shulman has pledged to direct publicity surrounding both the novel and the film towards supporting the nonprofit organization, Circles USA, to which all profits from the film will be donated. Circles USA operates in 23 states and South Africa to help impoverished families by connecting them with mentors and resources in middle class environments.
Dr. Shulman has also launched a series of global health and humanitarian summits at Emory University, and his writings inspired the Warner Brothers film “Doc Hollywood”.
