Q&A With Samuel Burnham

what motivated you to become an author?
"I'm not an author in the traditional sense, but I'd love to be a creator of technology on behalf of my family and my people (Black/African),so in some sense of the word, an "author" of technology. The motivation is the desire for freedom and to see my people be free."

About   (request update)
Samuel was born in Houston, Texas, but raised in Newton Texas, (located less than 20 miles from Jasper, Texas). Samuel was very curious as a child and remained so, well into adult hood. However, it is his curiosity about “God, technology, and the past & present global condition of Black people”, as he repeatedly says, that led him down life's journey to his current destination.

Fast forward a few years: Samuel graduated from FAMU, worked on various technology projects, but realized that financial independence should be a priority for personal freedom, in addition to true empowerment for African/Black people. Hence Samuel's joining with Chosen Agency.
