“The Passion of Our Culture” is an anthology conceived of love, respect, and appreciation for black culture. Prosperity Publications has compiled an anthology containing fiction and non-fiction stories by a wide range of authors, including NBA legend George Gervin and the late President of 100 Black Men Thomas Dortch as well as other notables.
The anthology offers a distinct perspective from each author presented in this literary work, which offers a glimpse at both fiction and non-fiction works. We have found ourselves asking, “Are we better off today than we were before?” as we navigate the 21st century. “Are all the sacrifices made in the last century for naught?”
The foreword is written by James Pickens Jr., who has entertained millions both on stage and television in the award-winning series “Grey’s Anatomy.”
It was written in honor of our ancestors, who were our civil rights heroes. This anthology showcases fiction as well as nonfiction to illustrate the uniqueness that exists among us. As we find ourselves on the cusp of the erasure and rewriting of our culture in contemporary times, this anthology is not only a celebration of the beauty of our culture but also a link to our history.
Several trailblazers and heroes of the civil rights movement are presented in the anthology, many of whom often defied death to demand and espouse change. “Write the vision and make it plain,” as the book of Habakkuk states. This book seeks to entertain, educate, and enlighten all of us as we journey together to embrace the passion of our culture.”
