Long gone are the days when African American Christian women and black women in general, sit back and passively wait for their next big break.
They are forging their own entrepreneurial paths and quickly emerging as forces to be reckoned with. "They are speaking out and paving their own paths in record numbers," says Dianna Hobbs, 30-year-old African American Founder and Editor-In-Chief of Empowering Everyday Women Online Magazine. African American Christian Women are everywhere, starting businesses, occupying executive-level positions, and launching successful international ministries. Still, in light of all their major contributions, things are not, by any means, being handed to them on silver platters.
