Front Cover
AuthorHouse, Oct 12, 2011 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 108 pages
This epic piece of literature was written by a man who has loved and endured women of color for his entire existence. I have witnessed a change between the queens of the past and the queens of today. The morals, beliefs, and standards of young women today would have the sisters of the past feeling as is their legacy was achieved for no gain. As human beings we are placed on this earth to help, understand, and embrace one another. "Queens The evolution of the Black woman" gives a historical account of some resilient African American women who are the prototype of what a strong queen should immulate today. It also touches on subjects and issues that women face in America but may not share their feelings on. The manuscript is informative, and motivational for any woman having difficulties with their inner self. Corretta Scott King, Winnie Mandela, and Michelle Obama are just a few of the historians in this book whose biographies may evolutionize your current state of thinking.

About the author (2011)

This book is a testament of the love and understanding that I have for women of color, and my present concerns about young women of the next generation who face societies impediments. I am an African American man who has evolved from a lost soul to a conscious individual. As for my achievements I am the Business Editor for Essex County College's newspaper "The Observer" also I am in persuit of a Bachalors Degree in Communications. Another achievement that I have is as of last year I acquired a (Certified Nursing Assistant License). These achievements took tons of resilience, integrity, patience and persistence. In my youthful days I was on my way to becoming a statistic on the orbituary page of the cities local newspaper. I had a very unstable life from a broken home to thoughts of suicide. I was born in Tampa, Fla to a Sandra Marrow. My Father was obselete in my upbringing which traumatized me as a child pyschologically. This basically left me to be raised by women, which sculptured my thoughts and ideas of how a woman should be. As a young man I would take advantage of women, until I came into knowledge of self, knowledge of my history and awareness of the actrocities that African American women dealt with in America. The present state of young women ways of thinking are projected on television through the media and on the radio. Women are the key to a righteous civilization if the mother is intelligent, nurturing and God fearing most likely the children will share the same attributes as her. But if the Mother is promiscious, deceitful and dependant than the children will follow suit. If you look at the current state of America and it's affairs and then you look at how the women are carrying themselves they coincide with one another. Change is good and change is inevitable. Now I'm going to end this with a quote By the Hon. Elijah Muhammad"If you teach a man you teach one you teach a woman you teach a generation".
