About the Book

James and Florine Manuel, an ordinary African-American couple, left behind an extraordinary legacy.

Their story contradicts the stereotypes of Black people in the United States of America. Following the example of their ancestors who rose from slavery, they encouraged their children and everyone around them to also become high achievers. But they never boasted about their accomplishments—and they gave all the credit to God.

One of the most special things about them is how they applied their desire and drive. They did it in love for each other and for their children. This love resulted in an enduring marriage, and they raised their children in love even when times were hard.

As you read about their lives, you’ll walk away with this pivotal truth: All human beings can achieve great things despite obstacles. They can also overcome negative stereotypes.

Manuel Strong is only one more story on the mountain of others, but it comes at a time when America is struggling to confront the legacy of its past.
