Thank You Hill Harper

On Saturday, Hill Harper joined Joyce Ann Brown to talk to over a hundred youth about his new book entitled Letters to a Young Sister: DeFINE Your Destiny. Within the book, Hill has encouragement and advice for young ladies from prominent women on a wide range of topics. The book hit #1 on the New York Times bestseller list earlier this year, and Dallas is one stop on the nationwide tour.

Dwaine bought 50 books to give out to the young ladies. Others also purchased books, and Hill took time to sign them all. Steve Pickett hosted the event, which took place at Concord Missionary Baptist Church (my church!).

This isn’t the first time Hill has done such an event in Dallas. A couple of years back, my wife and I attended an event which was held when he published Letters to a Young Brother: MANifest Your Destiny; this book was similar except it was geared towards young men. The event was held at a private home in Oak Cliff, and he was trying to get people to buy books in bulk to give to kids.

Hill is one of those extraordinary people who isn’t satisfied with being a Hollywood star on CSI:NY and countless movies. Maybe at some point he can come back and do a Teen Summit. Kudos to him for realizing that life goes beyond what you have and is measured by what you can do for others.
