Welcome to the website and discussion forum for the book dedicated to empowering African-Americans through self knowledge. The enlightening and empowering book, Know Thyself for Success should be required reading for not only African-Americans, but all people of African descent worldwide. Knowledge and understanding of the challenges we face as a result of our unique heritage is instrumental in hurdling these challenges and reaching our full potential individually and as a race.

The reality is we've limited ourselves in approaching the African-American condition and the deepening plight of our young men ONLY from a psychological and socio-economic perspective. Social and governmental programs have proven to be inadequate and insufficient. These programs will always be because insufficient because the root of our challenge is spiritual. Thus to effectively overcome our hurdles as a people requires a spiritual perspective and approach as presented in the book.   

Another topic discussed in the enlightening and empowering book is that coincidence is a rare occurence. Most things in life happen for a reason.  If you've been introduced to this website it's because NOW is the time for you to take your life to the next level through self-knowledge.
