“This book is not just for Baby Boomers who remember the days, when Blacks stood-up for one another and fought for the things they believed in. This book is for anyone who wishes to visit the past to gain much needed knowledge of where we need to be.”
Author of "My Son, Not The System’s"
“Ji-Tu Cumbuka’s, A Giant to Remember will leave you with three things, Education, Motivation, and Inspiration. It takes you on a journey, and adventure, at the same time it addresses the harsh realities of Hollywood politics that prevented some from having the same opportunities as others.
Forty years in Hollywood, from his point of view and his perspectives it is undoubtedly more riveting than any Hollywood production one can produce. Hollywood has more politics' than Washington D.C. and Ji-Tu managed to navigate a path to a lifetime accomplishment. I wouldn’t be surprised if he ran for the Senate.”
