Black History Moment for Bow Tie Monday

February 26, 2018
Welcome to the Bow Tie Monday Black History Month Motivational Moment.
This Black History Month Motivational Moment was inspired by Carol Coakley after she told me at church that she looked forward to see my next Bow Tie. As soon as I walked into Friendship Missionary Baptist Church for service and saw everyone decked out in their African attire I knew that I had to come correct and pay my ancestors respect.
In the word Black you have B and Lack. Many of us Lack because we don’t know how great we can B. In the word History there is Hi and Story. In order to make History you have to say Hi to your Story.
When I went to the store to find a pattern to make my tie for today the clerk was asked by another customer if they had a pattern that would fit Black History. After only 30 seconds of searching she gave up and said for something like that we would have to order it. I told the other customer don’t worry about what someone else couldn’t find for you because before I entered the store I looked into the word African.
In the word African you have AFR for Always Find Resources with I and Can because every time I say “I Can” I Always Find Resources.
This is just a Moment so put on your Bow Tie and make whatever you do a Movement.

Book The W.O.E. Man Show For Black History Month in 2012

December 16, 2011

Do you have a Black History Month program coming up?

With powerful words, Encouragement Speaker Derrick Hayes is here to help. Countless individuals vow for a change. Be it spiritually, financially or mentally, goals cannot be accomplished without the encouragement to take the necessary steps.

From the work place to the church pews, people need encouragement to propel them to the God-given success they already possess, Hayes says. While it’s inside already, sometimes an extra push is needed. I strive to provide that.

Hayes has the unique talent of turning names and words into positive messages within seconds right before your eyes.  Hayes calls these Derricknyms. His critically acclaimed first book by the same name (first print 2000) has been utilized in corporate, religious and scholastic settings. Personalized Derricknyms can be ordered by going to http://www.derrickhayes.com/derricknyms/. One of the most frequently used Derricknyms is W.O.E.

I always tell people to make sure they give others a W.O.E. daily. Hayes says, “In the general context, a woe is a problem.” In the Derricknym fashion, it is a Word of Encouragement.

Hayes is a highly sought-after speaker nationwide. He has been featured as the keynote speaker at several events sponsored by such entities as the U.S. Department of Commerce, Brown Sanders College, Georgia State University, Tennessee Childcare Facilities Corporation, Mississippi 4-H, American Camping Association, Bowie State University, Tennessee State University, Georgia Power, Jackson State University,  and many others.

As a featured writer, Hayes has had articles and columns appear in several publications and on many Web sites. Hayes has written for Next Step Magazine, www.BlackEmerge.com, www.DiversityInc.com, The Anointed News Journal, and others. Most recently, Hayes has written Grow The “F” Up (www.amazon.com) and is a contributor to the thought-provoking book, Can Hip-Hop Be Holy? In the fall of 2011 Derrick Hayes released his highly anticipated ebook entitled, 1 WORD Is All It Takes™.
