Readers can learn from ancient African paradigms how to resolve problems within the community that promote harmony and well being.
Palm Coast, FL (PRWEB) November 14, 2014
The new color book by Barbara Solomon, Princess Kamala and The Lost Boy, ($11.99, paperback, 978149840251; $9.99, e-book, 9781498402521) is not a simple children’s story. A young boy is lost, and an entire village is upturned due to his missing status. The author explains that her book is a metaphor for all of the lost boys in the present African American community. She makes note that these young men are being lost to: violence, drugs, crime, gangs, failed education systems, incarceration, dysfunctional families, and loss of identity. The strong message within her story will cause people to stop, think, and hopefully take action.
“Readers can learn from ancient African paradigms how to resolve problems within the community that promote harmony and well being,” states the author. “A community in conflict is unproductive and destructive to itself, and to those who come in contact with it. To strive for harmony will produce peace and a high level of productivity where all members benefit.”
