(TriceEdneyWire.com) - For the past 22 years, Jim Clingman has published his cutting edge "Blackonomics" column in Black-owned weekly newspapers around the country. The column mainly pushes for economic justice, which he views as a core necessity for Black progress in America.

It is a battle for his own life - and quality of life.

Eighteen months ago, doctors diagnosed Jim Clingman with ALS, the gradually debilitating disease that leads to partial or total paralysis of the body and a most often two to five year lifespan after diagnosis.
