To tell a story well, you have to live a story well -- with courage, persistence, and faith that everything's going to turn out all right. "Black-Eyed Peas for the Soul" is a collection of stories that reveals universal themes, as well as the unique perspectives of African Americans. The first collection of its kind, "Black-Eyed Peas for the Soul" boldly dispels the myth of a homogeneous Black culture. Diverse voices -- including those of Zora Neale Hurston, Dawn Turner Trice, and Frederick Douglass -- tell our stories of beginnings, wisdom, patience, hard work, excellence, joy, and miracles. Stories about love, healing, and atonement are told with insight, humor, and gritty honesty.

Arising from these distinct voices is the call for hope. Enjoy these stories and let them guide your soul to a place where you can find solace and draw nourishment, a place that can warm and soothe you, like a bowl of black-eyed peas.
