In the midst of economic chaos, high unemployment, and a nation faced with multiple challenges, there is a leading voice coming out of the Harlem community echoing a positive message of "transforming pain to power." You're invited to join us for a special Sunday afternoon with the multi-talented Daniel Beaty.

Drawn from Daniel Beaty's powerful, true journey from a childhood rife with poverty, 

incarceration, addiction, and rage to the successful adult life he has achieved, the award winning performer, writer, and motivational speaker presents the tools that readers need to overcome any obstacle and tap into their full capabilities. Beaty's story-supported by deeply personal advice from notable mentors including Bill Crosby, Leontyne Price, Sydney Poitier, Ossie Davis, and Ruby Dee-serves as a poignant reminder that success is ultimately possible, not in spite of struggles but as a result of lessons learned and power drawn from those conflicts.


"No matter where you come from or where you are, in this moment, you have

within you the unlimited potential to create, do, or be anything. No matter

the pain you have experienced in your past or may be experiencing in this very

moment, you can transform that pain to power... You can live the life of your dreams.  My life is proof that with a choice to believe, a little bravery, a lot of diligence, and the right tools you can transform your pain to power."

Daniel Beaty

Through bravely exposing his own painful childhood, writer and performer Daniel Beaty has given us a wise and passionate book that lovingly guides us through steps to heal our souls and harness the power of joy. It offers home grown remedies to combat the negativity and self-doubt that keep us from reaching our true potential." 

--Lynn Nottage, Pulitzer Prize Winning Playwright

"Cherish this book, share it with your children, with your grandchildren, so they can experience this powerful work.
