T. D. Jakes | – Bishop T.D. Jakes Interviews Bakari Sellers, Author of "My Vanishing Country!"


“I think you’ll see another side to Bakari Sellers far beyond what you see on CNN. I read his new book, My Vanishing Country. I think the interview will whet your appetite for more. He answers many of the questions you always wanted to ask but didn’t! The book MY VANISHING COUNTRY was an eye-opening faith-filled saga told through the eyes of an amazing millennial! Great interview, intriguing person, and is a page-turning occasionally humorous, roller coaster ride of life, liberty, and the desperate pursuit of happiness!” – Bishop T.D. Jakes

  1. As an author and graduate of a HBCU, I have thoroughly enjoyed this interview. I congratulate you on the release of your new book. I pray that God will bless you to earn bestseller status. Btw, I just released my new book as well, "The Invisible Covering: Trading My Grief for God's Supernatural Grace."

  2. I Love Looking Up The History of Small Towns and Its Amazing To Me The Census Records and Written Records of Histories Not By Historians but Those Living In The Town In The Days of It's Founding. Interesting Seeing Cleavland Sellers Being The Initial Interviewee to The Introduction on the Wikipedia Page. Super Awesome Video Thank Yall. God Bless You Bishop Jake's and Mr. Sellers For This Video. I got to Get This Book.

  3. I am a 62 year old white woman. I am getting this book. I am determined to broaden my circle. Oddly in a certain way I have always envied the black people for that sense of community and togetherness I felt deep down. My family always felt scattered and white people to me, have always felt compartmentalized. I woked with a bunch of black women as a nurse. I loved my times with them. They evied my "good" hair, and I envied their beautiful skin! The comment you made about no last name Bishop Jakes touched me deeply, helping me to understand more.. So again Thank you Bishop Jakes and may God bless you and yours richly.

  4. Thank you. Thank you. This was a very smart, historical in same ways interview of the man – Bakari Sellers. I immediately purchased his book, and after I read it, I will pass it on.
