About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

"Ebony you are and ebony God made you
Opposing the norm in all that you do
Loyal, trustworthy, faithful and true
Ebony you are, ebony, through and through"
- Ebony
The cock crowing nosily at the break of dawn
The carefree whistles of the cropfield farmers
The flags perched proudly on the bonnets of cars
The babies wrapped tightly on the backs of mothers
Africa... Africa... How liberated you are!
- Africa... Africa... How unique you are!
I am a living representation of the African rhetoric
My exploits the weapons of persuasion
Concrete evidence opposing bias perceptions
A catalyst to inspire from ideals to action
- The African Rhetoric
Perception. Stereotype. Empowerment.

These are powerful words that resonate strongly with Blacks and Africans around the world.
