Black History Month Quote of the Day: A. Barry Rand

While we provide you with quotes on the black celebrities, politicians, artists and entertainers with birthdays this month, as well as the black facts of the day which inform you on what went on in this day in history, we also have another treat for you.

We will publish a landmark quote from an African American legend every day of Black History Month.

Today, February 12th, we have a quote from the AARP CEO A. Barry Rand.

“I’ve seen a lot of people who are very talented, who are very smart, but they can’t cope with adversity. They don’t have the ability to persist. But the people who can handle the valleys in their lives are the people who ultimately make it.”
