Every African American writer, entrepreneur, builder, business owner and/or dreamer needs his or her tools. We are building a list of tools for you HERE.
This page presents my compilation of business, education and writing resources that I have acquired over the years. The compilation is an ongoing work, so check back often to see what I’ve added.
As with everything else in this life, “let the buyer — or in this case, the writer, entrepreneur and dreamer — beware. In other words, do your homework. THE BLACK HISTORY CHANNEL HAS NO CONNECTION TO THESE THIRD-PARTY VENDORS AND CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DETRIMENTAL ENCOUNTERS. Check out resources, competitions and the like for yourself, and know who you’re dealing with.
