From tumultuous beginnings in Uganda comes this adventurous story of a successful musician, minister, educator, author, and thinker. Dennis Sempebwa’s fascinating life journey exposed him to anarchy, victimhood, tribalism, classism, racism, and all manner of systemic injustices. His conclusion: Your injuries and circumstances do not have to dictate or define your identity. In this shockingly honest book, Dennis firmly asserts that it is the ability to acquire and develop basic human capital—resilience, focus, diligence, tenacity, attitude, thrift, adaptability, sociability, and character—that reveals and explains disparities in all human achievement, and ultimately determines authentic uplift of individuals, people groups, and cultures worldwide.
