Extraordinary men and women-we see them in our communities every day. They impact countless lives, they uplift and they inspire. But where did their inspiration come from? How did they become extraordinary?
Through the personal stories of twenty men and women, Dare To Be Extraordinary: A Collection of Life Lessons From African American Fathers breathes life into one of today’s most compelling familial and social issues: fatherhood in the African American community. In-depth discourse allows business leaders, cultural icons, athletes, politicians, activists, doctors, newsmakers, and some of the best and brightest minds of our time, the chance to share-with honesty, wit and intellect-lessons learned from their fathers. Dare To Be Extraordinary recognizes and honors the wisdom and teachings of African American fathers passed down to both sons and daughters who took those lessons to heart and have led extraordinary lives.
