“I've known Dr. Mitchell since our freshman year at Howard University and I know that you will appreciate these strong words from a strong mind. The story within these pages is a memoir that is direct, honest, and genuine. While the takeaways from this book will vary from reader to reader, this story contains life lessons that should be shared with sons and daughters of all ages. Dr. Mitchell is an American success story and another testament to the quality of education and personal development that Historically Black Colleges and Universities produce.”
