Morehouse College Grads Get A Huge Blessing!

Morehouse College Grads Get A Huge Blessing!

I love this. Everyone has heard about Billionaire Robert F. Smith’s promise to pay off the student loan debt of the 2019 Graduating Class at Moorehouse.

Mother’s Day this year was wonderful. I spent part of the day with my soon to be daughter in law and we enjoyed lunch and just talking.   But as I thought about how I raised my son, I was reminded of the importance of the power that we have as Mother’s to influence the kind of literature our children are reading.  We can’t just depend on the schools to send our kids home with good books to read.  We have to teach our children to love reading and to seek out literature they will enjoy as well as literature...

Black History Month Celebration Everyday!

Black History Month Celebration Everyday!

As you know, February is Black History Month but for me it's 24/7.  In these times of blatant racial hatred and social injustice, more then ever we need to teach our youth and others about our great historical legacy and the importance of the accomplishments and achievements of our Ancestors via Black History Month Celebrations and beyond.   You too can make a difference and take this opportunity to "teach" by purchasing books for your family, children and school.  Schedule your book fair today (any time of year) and let's educate!  For more information click here.
