In 1619, twenty Africans were forcefully brought to the United States of America, landing in Jamestown, Virginia. In 1661, Virginia voted on and recognized slavery (mostly with Africans) as legal. Four centuries later, the highest percentage of African Americans voted for the first time in America for a “black man” to become the president of the United States of America. Rev. Dr. John Wesley Hardy further encourages the entire African-American population to exercise their right of suffrage and eventually bask in the glory of their freedom in POSITIVITY OF A PEOPLE.

This thought-provoking piece aims to enlighten African Americans and the rest of humankind of God's power and love despite their struggles and extreme negative treatment previously with slavery. POSITIVITY OF A PEOPLE contains information on the voting process and communication practices primarily affecting African Americans in the United States of America. It differs from a high percentage of books written about the group as an African American is actually writing the piece himself.

“Through a positive voting and communication process for all African Americans and Americans, we can make a greater America,” Hardy explained. “The ultimate goal of this book is to encourage all African Americans and all humankind in America to vote, vote, vote in all elections, especially in 2012 and beyond.”

Rev. Dr. John Wesley Hardy is obviously a prescient observer and erudite thinker. This is primarily evident in between the pages of POSITIVITY OF A PEOPLE. African-Americans and all humankind will greatly benefit from Hardy’s words if they shall heed his advice.
