Cassandra Bell Author of Mississippi Blues, After the Storm, News Anchor WITN-TV "Sharecropper's Wisdom is good storytelling packed with rich, memorable life lessons, humorous anecdotes and practical wisdom." Virginia D. Hardy, PhD Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs East Carolina University "Sharecropper's Wisdom is a must read for aspiring leaders-especially young people.
