9780140266764: Eight Habits of the Heart: Embracing the Values That Build Strong Families and Communities (African American History (Penguin))

Clifton L. Taulbert is renowned for his poignant memoirs about growing up in the segregated South and for his lectures and programs in schools, businesses, and communities throughout the world. In this inspiring handbook he lays out eight basic principles he learned from his elders: a nurturing attitude, dependability, responsibility, friendship, brotherhood, high expectations, courage, and hope. With a new Introduction and exercises for reflection and practice, Taulbert shows how the Eight Habits can be utilized today to help strengthen relationships, families, and communities everywhere. This inspirational book stands alongside "The Book of Virtues" and "Seven Habits of Highly Effective Families" as a refreshing and meaningful guide to the spiritual core we, as a society, always seem to be seeking.

From the Author:

The "Eight Habits of the Heart" are the tools we need.
"Eight Habits of the Heart" as the theme of my lectures has been well received by people around the world: Corporate, Educational and professional organizations.

Recently, the 106th Congress of the United States opened with each senator provided the opportunity to read this highly aclaimed book and reflect upon the life lessons contained therein. From the international business community in Belgium to high schools in Edmond, Oklahoma, "Eight Habits of the Heart" as a resource is becoming a leader in the building of "Community and Character" through the programs and training that has emerged from the lessons of the book.

This compact volume of timeless ideals reminds us that we must not abdicate our personal involvement in the lives of others to technology. We must live out these "Habits" in the presence of email and the internet so that we don't forget "People", the center of community.

The "Habits of the Heart" are timeless and universal and I am pleased to have seen them lived out in the Mississippi Delta of my youth....and I further find them to be worthy benefactors for the 21st century...

About the Author:

Clifton Taulbert is the author of three memoirs: Once Upon A Time When We Were Colored, the basis for the critically acclaimed feature film by the same name; The Last Train North, Watching Our Crops Come In, and most recently, Little Cliff and the Porch People. He was the recipient of the 27th annual NAACP Image Award for Literature, and was also one of the first African-American writers to win the Mississippi Institute of Arts and Letters Award for Nonfiction.

Time magazine named him one of America's outstanding black entrepreneurs. He is an acclaimed speaker who lectures around the world to schools, educators, businesses, and professional groups on the subject of the Eight Habits of the Heart.
