What is glory? The full definition for glory according to Merriam Webster Dictionary reads: a state of great gratification or exaltation. Words like glory, honor and dignity are normally reserved for religion or governments in modern English, but such words are important for use in all spheres of society if we truly seek to improve the condition of the human family. We have to set high standards for ourselves and strive towards fulling those standards to the best of our abilities. Return to Glory: A Travel Guide for African Americans Returning to Roots is a book reflecting such glory – reflecting great gratification and exaltation. This book has been written with joy because it acknowledges the important role that the ancestors of African Americans have played in the spiritual growth of society, and it re-introduces African Americans in particular to the African continent.
