Keepint the Faith that I recieved is in terrible shape and I will
be sending it back for a replacememy. I can not send this copy to
have Mr. Smiley to autograph in this condition. It would be a slap
in his face.

Keeping the Faith is a collective group of reflective essays written by famous and not-so famous writers to celebrate African Americans and our strong resolve as a people. Tavis Smiley has written the foreword, along with eight essays that begin each section of the book. The sections of the book delve into black love, grief and healing, overcoming challenges and hope. A favorite was Love and Self Love, a poetic essay that touched my spirit.
The various reflections will inspire and empower the reader and remind one that we have come a long way. This book highlights the inner strength of African-Americans as we deal with day-to-day issues. This book is a welcome addition to a family library.
