Carter G. Woodson

Great leaders communicate a vision that captures the imagination and fires the hearts and minds of those around them.

I may be what my enemies desire me to be, yet never an accusation are they able to hurl against me which makes me blush or lower my forehead; and I hope that God will be merciful enough with me, to prevent me from committing one of those faults which would involve my family.
People look at you, and they've got just the perfect little box for you, the perfect category. Call you a redneck. Call you a hillbilly. Like those were insults.
I was eleven, then I was sixteen. Though no honors came my way, those were the lovely years.
