African American Quotes: Madame C.J. Walker I hear a lot of excuses from people for why they don't start the business of their dreams. I don't have time because I'm working so many hours at my job. OR I don't have enough money to start a business. OR I don't know enough to get started. I imagine some of you [...]

African American Quotes: Mariam Wright Edelman Sometimes we give a lot of power to other people. We allow them to influence our thoughts in a way that makes us stop being in ourselves. It brings to mind a quote by Mariam Wright Edelman. No person has the right to rain on your dreams. ~Mariam Wright [...]

African American Quotes: Angelique Kidjo

I like to do African American Quotes, especially those by women. However, this quote is so simply and lovely, I can't help but share it. I don't believe Angelique Kidjo is actually American, even though she lives in New York. She's actually from a country in Africa, called Benin. We, as business owners, know running [...]

African American Quotes: Alice Walker

By | 2018-06-02T20:25:24+00:00 January 30th, 2017|Inspirational|

African America Quotes: Alice Walker I love this Alice Walker quote for two reasons. For me, it has a double meaning. First, it talks to me specifically as an African American Woman, thinking back on the trials my ancestors faced. Though we still have a long way to go as an African American community, I [...]
