Why our children need this book
Our children need material that speaks directly to their unique experiences within a society that has historically proven not to have the mind of an African American child in their best interest. Our children need to be warmly lifted and promoted as intellectually sound and behavioral competent individuals. Our children need a fair chance to compete in a very competitive market place. Our children need to expand and harness a vocabulary that let others know they are aware of the times and are ready to engage a society that specializes in manipulative communication.
