“Don’t wait around for other people to make you happy. Any happiness you get you’ve got to make yourself.”

This famous quote is by female African-American author and activist Alice Walker.

Growing up in the South during segregation, Walker was raised in abject poverty. But, later in life she grabbed success. He novel The Color Purple garnered her international acclaim. She was also an activist in the struggle for Civil Rights in the 1960s.

The alternating font on this black empowerment mug lends it a whimsical feel. But, the message is anything but whimsical. It is a call to action. Whatever time is spent waiting to be happy is wasted.

Walker has lived the words on this stylish, but functional, black history travel mug. She rose from humble beginnings and achieved greatness and undying fame. She grabbed happiness.
