Therefore I Am is an uplifting, inspiring, eye-opening book. Through the lives and experiences of everyday African American men, you learn the source of their strength and persistence. You learn what words empower them and how these words have affected their lives. You learn from a gamete of experiences from black men of all statuses, backgrounds, and beliefs. You are able to identify with the speakers, and look through their eyes. In many cases, this shared view, may be similar to one of life's' experiences that you may be dealing with or will experience in the future.
In contrast to other books of quotes that only highlight "famous" African Americans, Therefore I Am takes the words from the everyday Black man. From one who has persevered through life and continues to remain ahead of the game.
Not all men worthy of listening to or learning from are deceased or are those few that are only mentioned during Black History Month.
Prepare to open your minds.
