What will you invent, discover, explore, or become? Dream big, think big, and aim for bigger and better things in life. Your socioeconomic background, family, or race does not define the person that you will become. It’s how you see yourself that determines how far you will go.
Poverty never stopped anyone from fulfilling their dreams; only a closed mind and a negative attitude can hinder you.
Below, we have blacks that have changed our country forever and poverty did not stop them from being great men and women of our day. We read about blacks in our history books that have left legacies behind, but there are people that are living today that are setting examples for us today.

2. Colin Powell/Condelisa Rice—first black male/female secretary of state
3. Cedric Glover—first black mayor of Shreveport, LA.
4. Henry Whitehorn—first black police chief of Shreveport, LA.
5. Calvin Cochran— first black fire chief of Shreveport, LA.
6. Oprah Winfrey— One of the riches black women in American
It has been said, “The graveyard is one of the riches places on earth.” It is rich, because those that died, dreams died with them. What legacies will you leave behind or will you allow your dreams to die as well? Who will your life influence?
