Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author (Jessie Carney Smith) does not disappoint. This African American Almanac is really well written. It is categorized by accomplishments of each individual making their mark in history over a 400 year period. After reading this book you gain insight on the influences and accomplishments each person contributed to the making of modern day history. Some of the names are unfamiliar to me such as Zora Neale Hurston (1891-1960) however as an anthropologist she follows a different path and became a very accomplished writer. She is only one example of the hundreds of other stories in this book. I recommend it as part of every literary collection. You won't be disappointed. I have the paperback book and will upgrade to hardcover it if is available.

Format: Paperback
i love cultural books that break it all down and tell the story of where we came from, where we have been and where we are going and this book is truly a treasure and a reflection of this and so much more. from Slavery to the modern day and in between Jim crow seperate but Equal. these are the kind of books that need to be required studies of what has been going on in America and how to make it better for the future. a great book that highlights so many incredible souls that paved ways and left lasting impressions.

I am a schoolteacher and teach all African-American students so we will study some sort of African-American historical figure or event in this month and this is a very good, highly detailed book of 468 pages of people & events that you may have never heard of. A good resource book for the classroom!
