Booker T. Washington spent his entire adult life empowering and uplifting his race. Now, ninety years after his death, two of his great-granddaughters, Gloria Yvonne Jackson and Sarah O’Neal Rush, have come together to pay special tribute to the life that he led, and to celebrate the 150th anniversary of his birth. This book is a compilation of some of their great-grandfather’s most inspiring quotations, corresponding to and confirming scriptures from their favorite book, the Holy Bible, along with their own personal testimonies and writings. It is their tribute to this extraordinary man.
Page after page delivers wisdom in the form of quotations and scriptures addressing every facet and all walks of life, including character building, race relations, rising above circumstances, the value of education, and business ownership. Be blessed, inspired, and informed as you read on topics addressing the whole person, be it spirit, soul, or body.
It is the strong belief of these two first cousins that the publication of this book was a divine call on their lives for such a time as this, and that each reader will discover the timeliness of the wisdom contained in this volume. By revisiting and highlighting the achievements and the legacy of their great-grandfather, it is their prayer that they are contributing in a positive way toward making a difference in today’s challenging times.
