Chicken Soup for the African American Soul: Celebrating and Sharing Our Culture One Story at a Time

by Jack Canfield Mark Victor Hansen Lisa Nichols Tom Joyner

This is the book everyone has been waiting for--an inspiring celebration of the joy, challenges, and triumphs of being African American. Combine Ilyana Vanzant and Terry McMillan, then include a dash of E. Lynn Harris, and you've got Chicken Soup for the African American Soul. This book captures the spirit of the community through inspiring storytelling that understands both the struggles and joys of being African American. From Jim Crow to the Civil Rights movement to today's business leaders and gangsta culture, this book is a primer on black history. And like all Chicken Soup books, it's a moving tribute to the small things--a moment of insight, a mentor, a lover, the loss of innocence--that make life worth living. This great volume is focused on representing all facets of African American life--man and woman; young and old; rural, suburban, and urban; rich and poor; race conscious and mostly color-blind.
