Keeping us well-equipped.

AS A PROUD SUBSCRIBER TO BLACK ENTERPRISE MAGAZINE, I JUST HAD TO give credit where it's due. I have been reading BE for years and have acquired a lot of vital information from it. I'm the owner of a successful independent record label in Augusta, Georgia, and the information I've obtained from the magazine's pages has been enlightening.

I love the fact that BE stresses the importance of family. In my opinion, every young black man and woman should read the magazine as a guide not only to financial empowerment but also family values. I've often heard wealthy people say, "You can have all the money in the world but if you don't have loved ones to share it with, you have nothing."

I was also very pleased and especially proud to read BE's tribute to the life of the beautiful Coretta Scott King (Newspoints, April 2006). She should be an inspiration to us all. I hope that everyone, especially young ladies, study the lives of Mrs. King, Mrs. Betty Shabazz, and Mrs. Bosa Parks, and embrace the concept that with courage and dedication, the sky's the limit. Black America, we have a lot to be proud of. Thanks to magazines like BLACK ENTERPRISE, we have all the information we need to be successes in life.
