1 Habit of the World’s Greatest Black Leaders

When you think of the world’s greatest black leaders, who comes to mind: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, Muhammad Ali, Malcolm X, or maybe even Oprah Winfrey, Barack Obama, or Kamala Harris? Agreeably these were/are some phenomenal great black leaders, but can we also agree that there are many, many more that we simply have not heard about— living or deceased. Black History Month each year is an opportune time to explore Google, to dig deep into the history books, and to even look around you.

Yes, look around you. I promise you there are great black leaders all around you— sitting next to you in a cubical at work, standing next to you in the bank line, checking your temperature at the hospital, running beside you on the treadmill, or maybe just take a look in the mirror.

Black History is being made every day, with every single life that you impact with your spoken words, your written words, your benevolent acts, pushing through to be the first to do something, to create something, to improve something, despite the fears, uncertainties, and challenges that show up. Madam C.J. Walker once said, “I had to make my own living and my own opportunity. But I made it! Don’t sit down and wait for the opportunities to come. Get up and make them.” The great Reginald F. Lewis reminded us all to, “Keep going— No matter what!”

So with that said, read this book and allow it to inspire you to keep going and continue to create opportunities in the pursuit of the elevation of mindsets that are the groundwork for positive change, acceptance of others and long-lasting legacy that generations to come can be proud of. Whether you are a great black leader of one, of a few or millions, it matters and we need you. Your contributions to humanity, the sciences, healthcare, finance, technology, business, entertainment, the arts, religion, transportation, education, politics, sports, the armed forces, law enforcement, and everything in between are all significant. Or maybe you or someone that you know is still in the process of self-discovery, purpose, and/or passion. I would bet that these great black leaders, can attest to feeling this way as well. Allow us to introduce you to and remind you of some of the greatest black leaders in the world, who have been the loudest voice for the voiceless, a resource for the hopeless, a beacon of light for the lost, a champion for those who have experienced defeat, a model for those who needed an example and sheer joy for those who needed to smile again.

We encourage you to invest moments of your time to explore these habits of the world's greatest black leaders and pick one that resonates with you to implement into your own life. Be consistent and intentional about sticking to it and watch how your growth begins to spurt! While you are exploring, take note of the un-habits too; their un-habits and your own. Make sure that you are intentional about releasing thoughts, actions, words, spaces, and even people that no longer or never have served you well as a leader.

Remember, the late, great black leader Mr. James Baldwin once said, “Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” Let us follow the leader and endeavor to grow, 1 Habit at a time.
