REVISION IN PROGRESS

 

Famous Black Quotations

for the

Twenty-first Century
 
 

Of all the books I've published, FAMOUS BLACK QUOTATIONS has been my bestseller! It has been out of print for several years with only a few collector's copies available from me, as well as occasional used copies online. A new version of Famous Black Quotations was last published in 1995. A LOT HAS HAPPENED SINCE THEN, so I am updating it for publication in 2021.

Famous Black Quotations

FROM ANCIENT EGYPT TO AMERICA TODAY THE PORTABLE WIT AND WISDOM OF A GREAT PEOPLE.



These are powerful words. Provocative words. Words that move your heart and words that move you to action. Over 300 quotations--the best known, plus many that have become better known--all by people of African descent. Now, these words can be with you always, in a single, easy-to-use volume. From Aesop to Angelou, from Marcus Garvey to Martin Luther King, from Nat Turner to Nelson Mandela; here are the words you want for effective speaking and inspired thinking and writing.
