February is Black History Month, and a special book is available in bookstores. Little Legends by Vashti Harrison is a children’s book and tells the stories of some exceptional men in Black history. In today’s Story of Joy, the author shares why she chose to work on this book and something she noticed about many of the men she profiles. She notes that the men chose to respond to the struggles in their lives with “passion and joy” rather than focus on the negative.
