Jim’s biographical, historical, motivational and inspirational book and talk explain what the brothers did and show how two ordinary men mastered the impossibility of flight and forever changed the course of humanity.

We all possess the power to soar on wings of greatness – wings of our own design and construction. By further developing the Wright characteristics in ourselves, by maximizing the effectiveness of the strengths of our own personalities, even the impossible is possible.

- Take risks
- Create” luck

I have an African-American friend who says that in addition to their bicycle shop and their experiments with wind tunnels and flight, the Wright Brothers were into publishing and helped publish and encourage the work and writing of the African-American poet Paul Lawrence Dunbar. Like the Wright Brothers Dunbar lived in Dayton Ohio and the Wright Brothers were good friends of Dunbar.
Orville went to school with Dunbar.
Paul Lawrence Dunbar wrote an early poem about Orville, on the wall of the Wright’s printing office.
“Orville Wright is out of sight
In the printing business.
No other mind is half so bright
As his’n is.”
