5.0 out of 5 stars This Little Light of Mine, September 26, 2004
This review is from: Chicken Soup for the African American Soul: Celebrating and Sharing Our Culture, One Story at a Time (Chicken Soup for the Soul) (Paperback)
The light shines in this compilation of uplifting stories of the strength, power and resilience of African Americans. From its opening story until the final chapter, the reader is standing in triumph of how wonderful we are as African Americans. CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE AFRICAN AMERICAN SOUL engages the readers with stories that inspire, empower and strengthen African-Americans.

The stories are placed into categories that best suit the feelings that are trying to be invoked. The chapters include: From Strong Roots, Celebrating Family, Triumph and Resilience, Accepting Me Loving You, Praise, Worship and Prayer, Lessons Learned and Making A Difference. There are stories written by unknown authors and authors such as Maya Angelou, Leslie Banks, Tracy Price-Thompson, Dr. Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela. All the stories were wonderfully written and felt so timely in that they convey feelings of strength that one would garner from stories that relish in our beauty and strength as African Americans. Although I enjoyed all the stories presented, there were a few that really embraced me with their warmth they include: Fried Chicken and Collard Greens, More Alike Than Different, Cold Hands, Warm Heart, A Magical Moment With Ali and Life After Death.

CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN SOUL builds upon the foundation of strong, resilient and purposeful people. It illustrates that our strong groundwork has helped to make us the people that we are today. Through slavery, discrimination, poverty and statistics that have killed many of our dreams, we still persevere and this book reinforces the realness of the culture. Readers will be proud of this collection and no matter what race, everyone will gain a little light of understanding from a group of strong people whose souls have been enriched from the past, present and future.
