Your book can make a difference to the lives of the people reading it. Your book can be a catalyst for change.
Most people I talked to want to write a book for credibility
But everyone I talked to wants to write a book to inspire
people and create an impact.
Every author has their own reasons to write a book.
Because books are catalysts for social change.
Whether your book creates a mass movement, or it saves
just one person’s life, your book can make a difference.
A few weeks ago, I asked some of our African American
authors how books related to protests and social change. I shared with you some
of the responses from our male authors. Now I’d like to
share with you what some of our women authors said.
I think you will be inspired.
Regardless of race, our authors exemplify the universal
values of leadership, tolerance and continuous growth.
Here are some excerpts from our conversations:
Marquesa Pettway, Speaker, Author, Business Reinvention Expert, Chair of Black National Speakers Association, Author Bridge Media Author Quote:
“What I love about leveraging books is, it's permanent. Social media
disappears, speeches come and go. A book, I can pick up, I can read it. We need
to hear people's voices during the time that we're living in.”
Author, Speaker, Founder of World Footprints, Author Bridge Media Client Quote:
“People reading books don't necessarily care what ethnicity you are. They
will care about the stories. The message is universal.”
