WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT LEGACIES...
The artwork and the poetry add another dimension to the book. The artwork brings a wonderful visual component that reflects the text. The classic poems of Mari Evans, “I am a Black Woman;” Carolyn Rodgers, “How I Got Ovah,” and Nikki Giovanni’s, “Ego Tripping,” among many others, will speak to the hearts and souls of many readers.
There is a lot here to encourage young black women to grasp their future with both hands and soar above the adversities that life can bring.

Africa's Royal Women and Home is with Our Family
Legacies should be required reading in every middle and high school in the United States not only for the incredible history lessons contained within its pages but also for the contemporary stories where girls can see role models.

To my young Black Sisters: Read this book and be inspired with the Black Women who have blazed trails for all of us in familiar and unfamiliar territories. Use their experiences and this book to plan your life’s journey and make it a great journey. I extend my heartfelt appreciation and congratulations to the authors, Connie Gipson and Dr. Hazel Mahone, for researching and writing this invaluable book for young Black Women and other young women who read and use it in planning their future.

What a motivational, educational and inspirational work! Legacies is a great resource to learn about our ancestry and about some of our amazing African American women and their accomplishments today. After reading this work, young women will be inspired to dream big—because anything really is possible!
