Book Review: Chicken Soup For the African American Soul

with one comment

For those of you not familiar with the Chicken Soup for The Soul series, it is a book series designed to inspire and encourage people with true stories. These stories have been submitted from everyday people as well as famous people. Each book targets different people from women to cancer survivors to teens.

One of the most amazing things about this book is the past meeting the present. There are stories about ordinary and famous people involved in the Civil Rights Movement and stories about people giving back to the community. Another notable thing about this book is the wide audience appeal. There are stories written for the young and old as well as black, bi-racial, or multi-racial.

A useful thing in the book besides the inspiration is the contributor’s section at the back of it. If you really enjoy a story, then you canĀ use this section to find out more about who wrote it.

If you are a black person who wants to celebrate your history and community, this book is for you. If you are someone who wants to learn more about black history and black culture, this book is for you. If you are a person who appreciates different cultures and backgrounds, this book is for you.
