Living on the peripheral of life is not acceptable, your heritage dictates better for you and your family. Wake-up Its Time to RECLAIM THE LEGACY is about taking control of your life and your familys destiny. This book incorporates, research, prose, poetry and art to motivate a change in our thinking. For too long minorities in the United States have placed their fate in the hands of politicians, educators, doctors, and even celebrities, hoping that through their actions, our lives would improve. No one can help you but you, these individuals don not have your interest at heart, they care about themselves. Parents have a direct responsibility to raise their children and to be their champion, when they cannot do it for themselves. However, to improve our circumstances we must wake-up from ae state of ambivalence and put forth effort to Reclaim Our Legacies.
