Plot & Details

Experience the true personification of courage as Russell Simmons' Higher Self Series brings home the tales of African-American icons who refused to take no for an answer and forever altered the course of American history. From Harry Belafonte's valiant efforts to reveal the truth during the civil-rights and anti-apartheid movements to the barriers that Vernon Jordan overcame to join America's elite circle of power, the stories are all here -- and told by the people who experienced the remarkable struggles firsthand. With ten other tales of triumph, including the remarkable stories of Nikki Giovanni, B.B. King, and Angela Davis, this inspirational release shows that even in the face of insurmountable odds, the will to overcome will always triumph.
