A new book aimed at helping young black women plan their future is now available.
“Legacies: A Guide for Young Black Women in Planning Their Future” shares the rich heritage of African-Americans through the voices of 16 African Queens and nearly 40 successful contemporary black women. Illustrated with beautiful artwork and interspersed with poems, the book offers guidance as well as practical and thought-provoking interactive exercises that will help young women with life skills they need to succeed.
Aimed at young black women ages 12-22, the book helps them on their quest for self-realization by covering such areas as teen pregnancy prevention, sexual harassment, skin color, decision making and self-sufficiency.
The book was created by educators Constance F. Gipson and Dr. Hazel W. Mahone, and is available through the Vision 2000 Education Foundation in Elk Grove. Hard cover books are $45 and soft cover are $40.
