Janice became friends of Martin Luther King, Jr. and his wife Coretta Scott King and chaired landmark the Atlanta dinner honoring Nobel Peace Prize recipient Martin Luther King, Jr.,1965.

In addition to authoring four books and contributing to numerous additional books, she has written articles for the Encyclopedia Judaica, Southern Jewish History, The Atlanta Journal and Constitution Sunday Magazine, and many other publications.
