Praise

“With a selfless devotion that will inspire every reader, Mrs. Oral Lee Brown’s story has the power to change the way we feel about doing the work that needs to be done. After reading this book, you will be empowered to take on challenges in your own life and community. Oral Lee Brown is the kind of hero we need more of!”
— Tavis Smiley, author and host, Tavis Smiley on PBS

“Oral Lee Brown is a remarkable role model. By adopting an entire elementary class, she continues to share her success and perseverance with our entire community. Surely, Oral Lee’s efforts impact the students and their families, but her selflessness is an example for everyone. Most importantly, she helped cultivate Oakland’s next community of leaders.”
–The Honorable Don Perata, President pro Tempore, California State Senate
“What an amazing story, and what an amazing woman!  Ms. Brown and her “kids” stand as a beacon of hope to students everywhere who lack the access, but not the drive to achieve higher education. This book will inspire you to reach inside of yourself and discover how you can become an advocate in your own community.”
— Erin Gruwell, author of The Freedom Writers Diary
