The key

This is the answer to unlocking us. We need to instill this book into ourselves and into others. Couldn’t be more grateful to find what I’ve been looking for.

Excellence has a voice!

The Dr delivers with a claritive level set of the subject matter. Then builds upon the cultural positioning that the black diaspora should take - internal to external- to truly represent the best possibilities that the predecessors laid forth. His "talk" is psychologically sound and his delivery builds into a crescendo that lands the audience into a satisfaction reserved for a Thanksgiving feast. Very well done.

Dr. Na'im Akbar is a genius in his own right!

Dr. Na'im Akbar is one of the greatest intellectuals & lecturers of our time. This was a wonderful lecture. It was motivational and informative all at the same time.

Classic Akbar.

Excellent response to the rugged individualism found in the get rich literature of today. Classic Akbar ideas and eloquent delivery.
