Product Description

Celebrating the vast breadth and scope of Black excellence, Make Your Own History spotlights the principles of success exemplified by the lives of 120 Black role models who have blazed trails throughout American history.

Make Your Own History gathers together motivational quotes, historical contexts, and enlightening precepts from Black trailblazers spanning the eighteenth century to the present. These insights encompass twelve central themes: courage, self-discipline, compassion, perseverance, teamwork, integrity, industriousness, self-reliance, optimism, purposefulness, civility, and faith. These vigorous virtues will:

● Deepen your courage through journalist Ida B. Wells's activism in the face of professional and personal peril

● Fuel your perseverance through tennis superstar Serena Williams's journey to 23 Grand Slam singles titles

● Spark optimism through poet Langston Hughes's work as an artistic and intellectual catalyst for the Harlem Renaissance

Through these perspectives and so many more, Make Your Own History serves not only as an uplifting historical resource, but also as a spiritual road map for the lifelong journey of purposefully setting and meeting personal goals.
