DR. MAMIE SMITH AUTHOR
DR. MAMIE SMITH AUTHOR
Dr. Mamie Smith Author is also a businesswoman, musician and talk show host. She has spent over two years tracing her roots–reaching back to the 1830s to discover her ancestry. This proved to be challenging, because her ancestry is rooted at the bottom of American slave ships. The degradation of manhood and the manipulation of mind and spirit did not deter her from anxiously trying to discover her lineage. Writing books aided in this discovery.
AN AMERICAN STORY: MY FAMILY AND YOURS
This discovery led her to write a third book, An American Story: My Family & Yours. This book delved not only into her ancestry, but the history of African Americans and white Americans. A preview of the book can be found on her Youtube channel. As an author Smith uses the printed word to define her heritage, but when another medium is needed, she is capable of using her voice.

DR. MAMIE SMITH AUTHOR TURNS SPEAKER
As an inspirational speaker, Dr. Smith expounds on spirituality demonstrated in the human experience. Listen . . . as she talks on the topic:
“If Jesus Were Here Today . . . What Would He Say?”
The audio answers that question. . .
Dr. Mamie Smith Author, was a speaker at the early age of four years old. As a child, committing words to memory was an easy task, so her mom “placed her on the stage” in front of church members. These members viewed her as a child prodigy. For many years she spoke in front of large audiences.
RADIO TALK SHOW HOST IS DR. MAMIE SMITH AUTHOR
Smith’s audiences became worldwide when she was introduced to radio as host of “Talk to the Author” with Dr. Mamie Smith. Radio simply became an expansion of who she was. This gave her an opportunity to interview the only female horn player of the “Unsung Musicians of the Motown Empire” Dayna Hardwick, a flutist. Dayna played with Motown greats like Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye. Talk talk talk is what Dr. Mamie has done most of her life. It is easy to see why she chose teaching as a profession.
Teaching students is a “way of life” for Smith. She no longer teaches in the public school system, but touches students in a private setting with voice and piano.
