About the author
A native of Virginia, Roy Wyatt has published eight books – all on relevant topics for today’s economy. He has been featured on radio talk shows, book signings, and interviewed by the nation’s most prestigious HBCU, and books displayed in several African-American museums across the country.

He believes that as African Americans, telling our story has never been more important. He comments, “Where the history and experiences of blacks are often forgotten or undervalued, the celebration of African-American history is more prevalent now than ever. However, many African Americans don’t know their true past and the many contributions made to American history and the global society. But the black experience is simply too important to forget.”

He continues, “In an effort to honor African Americans’ expansive and growing history, we must pay tribute to the struggles and achievements of the people and events that have shaped our nation.”

His book Color ‘n America delivers a summary of the complete African-American diaspora while taking the necessary steps to preserve their history and culture.
