Karen Henderson an AP teacher from Kentucky said, “I really enjoyed the first-person perspective of “Moments in the Shadow of Greatness.”  As a teacher of African American Studies, I found it easy to read and to build lesson plans around the information contained throughout its pages.  The additional web links provided me with a perfect resource for student AP writing projects.  This book is an ideal learning and motivational teaching tool for educators everywhere.”

Brian Jones of Kentucky said, “I especially enjoyed the website links he provided so I could visit and explore in further depth the stunning photos by Gordon Parks Sr, and the uplifting programs and

services provided by both the Ali and Obama organizations. I very much look forward to continued learning from George’s rich, and diverse life experiences in this “Moments in the Shadow of Greatness” series of books.”

George offers his readers a dazzling glimpse into the lives of people with courage and fortitude, while simultaneously, defying the odds. This book was exhilarating, captivating, and very thought-provoking, to say the least.  The author gives insight into the lives of the great men and women who influenced the decisions of his life. While reading, I had the feeling of being with George as he sat and spoke with each person.  Truly a great read, let us do it again, George. I ’ll be waiting!

And Chandra Stroud another Kentucky resident said, “What a privilege it was to sit in my favorite chair in my favorite room with “Moments in the Shadow of Greatness” in hand.  George mindfully guides you through each page of his personal journey as it intersects with the most power-filled,

influential, intentional, and down to earth individuals that ever graced the planet. Under the low lamp light of my favorite room, I was transcended by George’s stories and his ability to “write” you into his life narrative…filled with divine orchestrated moments like Gordon Parks responding to his letter even when due to Mr. Parks’ time constraints, hundreds went unanswered! Easy to read and easy to “feel”, the sacred moments that George experienced with these monumental individuals, left an indelible imprint on my spirit, mind and heart!
