Quote of the Day

True leadership cannot be awarded, appointed, or assigned. It comes only from influence, and that can’t be mandated. It must be earned. The only thing a title can buy is a little time-either to increase your level of influence with others or to erase it.

Quote of the Day

..Africans who were neither Muslims nor Christians were classed as “pagans” and therefore required to disavow their culture and to regard practically all African institutions as “backward” or savage. The Blacks in their own right became non-persons, members of a race of nobodies, so hopeless that self-realization as personalities, even as subordinate status, could only be achieved by becoming Muslims or Christians.

Chancellor Williams, The Destruction of Black Civilization

Honestly, it still feels like a dream. I’ve accomplished a life long goal.

The plot of my first book is basically people trying to find true love despite the unique obstacles that come with that in the “hood” such as prison, drugs, baby mama etc. Its definitely a series part 2 is almost done.
