Jim Haskins

Jim Haskins (born April 4, 1952) is the weekday afternoon announcer on WMUB public radio station out of Oxford, Ohio. He is an United States citizen with ancestors in France and Switzerland. His hobbies include bee keeping, honey-making, and fly fishing. He has near sighted eye vision, forcing him to wear thick, tinted glasses to see small print.

In 1998 his 192 page young adult book, African American Entrepreneurs, was published by Jossey-Bass in English and went on to win the approval of various people. The book followed the success of his first work, Voodoo and Hoodoo: The Craft as Revealed by Traditional Practitioners which was published some twenty years prior.

Having authored more than one hundred books, Jim Haskin's books are a staple in any children or young adult's library. His picture books, with many brightly colored pictures and few words, are especially approrpiate for young children just learning to read. He offers more sophisticated ghost stories such as The Headless Haunt.Haskin's children books tend to highlight the achievements of African Americans in society. The characters of his stories are engrossing and cover the gambit of role models for African American children;Rosa Parks to the black members of the Hannibal Guards, a military organization in Pittsburg during the Civil War.

The film "The Cotton Club" was written by William Kennedy, Mario Puzo, and Francis Ford Coppola. The 1977 picture book Haskins wrote with the same title was used as inspiration for their film featuring gangsters, jilted love, and pre-prohibition gangsters. The same year that 'The Cotton Club' was published, Haskins won the Coretta Scott King Medal for his book 'The Story of Stevie Wonder'.
