Dr. Eric J. Chambers has done it again!!! His second book is genius and something to be savored over time like a home cooked soul-food meal to be enjoyed with the taste of each morsel. Its not a book you will want to read in one sitting as each page is divulged bit by bit. 

Chambers did not initially plan the orchestration of "Dining with the Ancestors." He was inspired by a photo in which he was dining with Mamie Carthan Till [Emmett Louis Till's mama], and with the staple question he asked at Hollywood's Red Carpet events. That question posed was " If you could have dinner with anyone from history's past, who would it be? And what would you talk to them about?" Chambers has been blessed with the opportunity of spending time with civil rights leader Rosa Parks, and well-known elders in the community of which he has lived.

Chambers connects the life of his heroes within the time-frame of his own history sharing how they have impacted his life. With the interviewing of well-known STARS such as Ja'Net Dubois, Chante' Moore, Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, Sr., Oprah Winfrey on the Red Carpet and other venues, he has found a common thread amongst all of us in that we all have ancestors that have inspired us, and that this is the connection we have with one another. We stand on many shoulders that came before us, and we continue the legacy of which we have been inspired.
