Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 10, 2011
Award-winning actor, author and activist Isaiah Washington shares his story of discovery, triumph and finding true purpose with his upcoming bestseller “A Man From Another Land: How Finding My Roots Changed My Life”, with contribution from Lavaille Lavette. The book, published by The Hachette Group, was released on April 27, 2011 and is available online at http://www.amazon.com and most major outlets.
“I wrote this book because I want current and future generations of African Americans to know that our spiritual, cultural and economic freedom is in our DNA”, says Washington. In addition to the DNA connection, this literary movement takes a look at the importance of finding purpose, mentoring, self identity and redemption for all people.
Washington, the first African American to be granted dual citizenship based solely on DNA testing, says “it is my hope people will attribute their life’s experiences to destiny, which defines us all, instead of serendipity and luck, after reading A Man From Another Land.” Following his own destiny, Washington started the Gondobay Manga Foundation after discovering his direct genetic link to the people of Sierra Leone.
