Matthew Knowles visits Nacogdoches for annual community lecture

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Entrepreneur and book-writer, Matthew Knowles, was in Nacogdoches Thursday as the guest speaker for The Annual Brown Family Health Center Community Lecture.

Before the lecture began, Knowles spent time autographing books and taking pictures with crowd members.

During his lecture his topic was how to make it in the music business and entertainment industry.

Knowles told crowd members the number one thing needed to be successful was having passion.

"I will talk about passion over and over because most people don't know their passion. We can talk about the other traits, but they're not important if you don't have the passion," Knowles said.

Knowles currently has two books out right now Racism from the Eyes of a Child and The DNA of Achievers.
