Questions Every Black Person Should Ask at Least Once
A POETIC TRIBUTE TO THE LEGENDS WHO LUNCHED WITH OPRAH is a cultural tour. It is a rhythmic exploration of some of the most enriching women of our time. To know them is to know inward and outer beauty. To know them is to know endurance, determination, survival, longevity, courage, resistance and tolerance. Through poetic verse you will glide along the once rugged paths that now represent their history.
The concept of this book was inspired by Oprah's Legends Luncheon which was held in 2005. Oprah designated 25 of her invited guests as "Legends" because of their contributions to family, community, education, civil rights, religion, literature, and politics. According to Oprah these women have been "a Bridge to Now" for her. The list included women such as Cicely Tyson, Coretta Scott King, Alice Walker, Tina Turner, Maya Angelou, Ruby Dee, and Leontyne Price. We have honored each of the 25 women with a poem that reflects their history the who, the what, the when, the where and the why. Prepare to be enlightened. Prepare to be reminded. Prepare to be thankful. For, we are where we are because of them.
