With a long, successful career in politics, Atiba Madyun steps up to the plate for his next challenge, becoming an author. Inspired by the likes of Richard Wright and Toni Morrison, his book, “Saving Grace”, is the culmination of 20 years of work filled with fun facts about Washington D.C, and aims to have readers understand that things are never as they seem in the world of politics. Taking from the styles of the authors that inspire him, Atiba likes to take technical things and seeks to make the reader not only enjoy his work, but have them stop and think about the words, actions, and how both have an impact on their lives.
Today, Atiba is President and CEO of The Madyun Group (TMG), a government relations firm based in Washington, D.C, as well as Party Politics, a data collection firm that not only gathers data from American voters but also engages with young people to educate them on public policy. Throughout his career as a political analyst and public affairs consultant, he has been a part of historic delegations including the first African American delegation of the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) to Israel in 2007. In 2014, he traveled with a delegation of Muslim business leaders led by former South African Ambassador to the US, Ebrahim Rasoul to South Africa to meet with South African business leaders and to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the first free elections that led to the election of President Nelson Mandela.
On top of his political achievements, and work in the world of multicultural affairs, Atiba is Associate Producer on the upcoming film Nicole and OJ, starring Boris Kodjoe and Ving Rhames, is a TV commentator for China Global Television Network (CGTN) with reach to more than 100 countries and 140 million homes and contributes articles for the Huffington Post and The Guardian.
The political thriller serves as the first book of the series, following one Anthony Grace, and has been met with nothing but praise from those who have read it, mimicking the feel of a television series one could easily get lost in and binge, and is available for purchase on his website https://atibamadyun.com, as well as Amazon in paperback and Kindle.
