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: Alice Walker

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 [...]

African American Quotes: Martin Luther King Jr. It's Martin Luther King Jr. Day. MLK had so many great quotes. Choosing just one was tough, but I have one for you.

African American Quotes: Nikki Giovanni The other day I was listening to a podcast and Christianity was mentioned. It talked about how many Christians rely on prayer to get things done. I guess the term would be called lip service. Please, don't misunderstand me. I'm not against prayer. However, imagine a world where everyone prayed, [...]

African American Quotes: Toni Morrison

By | 2018-06-02T20:25:25+00:00 January 2nd, 2017|Inspirational|

African American Quotes: Toni Morrison I struggle with the term African-American and even Black American. I use it in my business as a way to identify my target market. It's a way of saying, I'm over here. I'm here to help you specifically. As long as there's inequality in the United States toward Black Women, [...]

African American Quotes: Oprah Winfrey One of the things my husband is fond of saying is, "You can't afford my free time."  My husband used to say this when people asked him how much it'd cost them for him to fix their stuff during his off time. It reminds me of a quote by Oprah [...]

African American Quotes: Arthur Ashe

African American Quotes: Arthur Ashe Discrimination is live and well. It's been around well before we were born. It'll likely be around decades from now. The bottom line is it's nothing new. Then again, neither is success. Arthur Ashe said it well: Racism is not an excuse to not do the best you can. ~Arthur [...]

African American Quotes: Octavia E. Butler I've yet to meet a person who's had a perfect life. Each and everyone of us has challenges, and they start from the moment of birth, when we're expelled from the warm womb into a cold room and we breath in that first startling breath. We're here today because [...]

African American Quotes: Faye Wattleton I'm not sure if sharing African American Quotes is going to be a regular thing for me. However, I'm finding them so uplifting, I'm going with it for now. One particular quote that struck me was one from Faye Wattleton, who is the first African American and the youngest president elected [...]
