Who wants Watermelon for Breakfast?

Alicia Ritchey

Even though watermelon is loaded with health benefits, it's not always the most celebrated fruit, especially among Southern Blacks. Historically, the watermelon represented scarce resources and limited opportunities available to poor black folk who, for menial to zero wages, worked for white farmers in their watermelon fields. Who wants Watermelon for Breakfast is an ode to Ozzie Ritchey Palmer, a Black Southern woman, who saw through the eyes of abundance that a single watermelon, nothing of significance to most, was sufficient to feed breakfast to herself, her eight children, and her then husband. Along the same lines, the book uses watermelon as a metaphor to represent the seed of opportunity, a springboard for greatness that can be achieved through a solid work ethic coupled with a mindset of resourcefulness, creativity, and self-reliance. Inside the book are stories and business lessons that promise to transform your entire life.
