Unreliable sources[edit]

I took out 2 sources on this article, which seemed to make up the some of the article's content. I only did this because both sources seemed to be in question of their reliability, and I think there are more reliable sources out there at the moment.

This organization seems to be a motivational speaker, business/diversity consultant. The source itself doesn't seem to have editorial oversight and seems very promotional, which makes it questionable at best.
  • "A Friend to All Mankind": Mrs. Annie Turnbo Malone and Poro College by John H. Whitfield
This book is self-published by someone who does not seem to be an established expert in this field (although I can't seem to find any information on the author), so it doesn't meet WP:SELFPUBLISH standards.

I've previewed some of the book on Amazon, and while I don't have issues with the content I was able to view, I wasn't able to see the bibliography. The author is doing interviews in wake of the release of Self Made, so perhaps we will learn more about who he is and any credentials or experience he may have. I was able to verify almost all of what it said from modern and contemporary secondary sources. I added his book to a "Further reading" section as that is less controversial than sourcing it.

Page move suggestion[edit]

I believe the page should be moved to Annie Turnbo Malone and Annie Malone changed as a redirect to that. Annie Turnbo didn't marry Malone until some time after she had become a successful businessman. Users have mentioned this in the past and adjusted the text of the article (I'm not sure these edits have been maintained and that is moot here). See these edits:

Changing the title to Annie Turnbo Malone seems like a fine suggestion to me. From a cursory Google search, it seems like both "Annie Malone" and "Annie Turnbo Malone" are pretty equally used for article titles, but in the actual text in sources, "Annie Turnbo Malone" seems to be used more frequently. - Whisperjanes (talk) 19:55, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
