"He was an Olympic gold medalist in boxing, had a distinguished military career which included being a Tuskegee Airman, an educator, a businessman, and a family man. Each of those titles holds SO many accomplishments within it, I can't possibly list it all here. All I can say is what a legacy this man left behind. He did his best and always looked forward. Read this book. You will be the better for it."
"MOVED TO TEARS, not only by the incredible story, but by the care and attention paid to do justice to the memory of a great man. Norvel Lee was a giant in stature and in heart - the definition of a gentleman and a scholar."
"WELL DONE! This was clearly a well researched book and it captures the character and honor of Norvel Lee so poignantly that you wish you had known him. I felt shame for the Jim Crow laws and disrespect that this good man was so obviously far above. I am so glad he persevered and showed the world that good prevails despite our petty small vengeance. As a Virginian I am glad to know this history and learn this inspiring story."
"A BEAUTIFUL BOOK! Amazing!! To think that Norvel originated in Gala Virginia and became such a success in life. A humble, talented man who was a human being who cared for others more than himself."
"AN INSPIRATION! This is a well researched, well written book, about a man who was so much more than an Olympic boxer.
His devotion to helping others is an inspiration. I LOVED the book!"
