QUOTE OF THE DAY
Black History Month

Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your father. No, I am your father! 

Remember who you are. You are my son, and the one true king. Remember. 

Chances are you now have the inimitable sound of the booming James Earl Jones on the brain. Jones, born 1931 in Arkabutla, Mississippi, is an American acting staple. But did you know that as a child, Jones had a stutter? He has long since overcome the trait and has one of the Best Voices Ever (Anywhere, of All Time). If you’d like to read a James Earl Jones biography, James Earl Jones: Voices and Silences by Penelope Niven is available in our stacks. Its only downfall is that it is not narrated by James Earl Jones himself.

“When I read great literature, great drama, speeches, or sermons, I feel that the human mind has not achieved anything greater than the ability to share feelings and thoughts through language.” – James Earl Jones
