Turning Pages: April 2022 Book Suggestions

Updated: May 25, 2022

"The knowledge of prior accomplishments establishes a link with the past which lays a foundation for the future. Everything is rooted in the past. Knowledge is the common pathway between the two. Knowledge can be obtained at any time...If I were to suggest a daily regiment for African Americans it would be that we rededicate ourselves to fulfilling the need to know. It's our birthright and our obligation to our children."
