    The Meaning of the National Achievers Logo
    The Pyramid symbolizes achievement.
    The Black Silhouette of a human being symbolizes the unbroken chain of Africans to African-Americans.
    The Breaking of Chains of Slavery symbolizes both the breaking of the physical bonds of slavery 
                                                               and the psychological liberation of Black intellect.
    A Hand Reaching for the Stars in the apex of the logo exemplifies the following quote by Dr. Benjamin Mays
                                                       "It is not a disgrace not to reach the stars, but it is a disgrace to have no stars to reach for."
    The Book symbolizes learning as a liberating experience. 
    The Atomic Symbol in the book represents technology and the future.
