I AM A 61 YEAR OLD BLACK GRANDFATHER OF 7 GRANDCHILDREN BORN TO MY TWO DAUGHTERS AND MY SON. I CAN REMEMBER WHEN I ATTENDED A SEGREGATED ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AND HIGH SCHOOL IN THE STATE OF VIRGINIA. THOSE SEVEN YEARS WAS THE ONLY TIME THAT MY TEACHERS PROVIDED THE MOST KNOWLEDGE AT THAT TIME ABOUT BLACK HISTORY. IT WAS SO STRANGE BEING BUSSED TO AN ALL BLACK SCHOOL IN THE CITY DAILY FROM AN ARMY MILITARY BASE THAT WAS FULLY INTEGRATED. EVEN BEFORE MY FATHER GAINED HOUSING ON THE MILITARY BASE I PLAYED WITH OTHER WHITE KIDS IN OUR SEGREGATED NEIGHBORHOODS ALMOST DAILY, BUT WE WENT TO DIFFERENT SCHOOLS BECAUSE OF RACE. PRIOR TO MY DAD BEING TRANSFERRED TO VIRGINIA I ATTENDED INTEGRATED SCHOOLS IN MARYSVILLE AND STOCKTON CALIFORNIA AND CANNOT REMEMBER ANY TEACHING ABOUT IMPORTANT BLACK AMERICANS AND THE CONTRIBUTIONS THEY MADE. TO LEARN THAT MANY BLACK AMERICANS CONTRIBUTED OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTIONS TO IMPROVE THE LIVES OF ALL AMERICANS, BUT IN MANY INSTANCES HOW WHITE PEOPLE IN MY AMERICA TRIED SUCCESSFULLY AT TIMES AND MANY MORE TIMES FAILED TO STEAL OR TAKE CREDIT FOR INVENTIONS, DISCOVERIES IN MEDICINE, ARCHITECTURE ADVANCED MATHEMATICS AND MANY MORE FIELDS. HOW A BLACK MAN FROM MEMORY WAS ABLE TO COMPLETE FROM MEMORY THE LAYOUT OF WASHINGTON D.C. AND COMPLETE THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA. AFTER THE FRENCH ARCHITECT WHO WAS COMMISSIONED FOR THE JOB BECAME INVOLVED IN A DISPUTE WITH THE AUTHORITIES; TOOK HIS ARCHITECTURAL PLANS AND RETURNED HOME TO FRANCE. TODAY WE HAVE A BLACK PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA AND THE MANY TIMES PEOPLE HAVE BESMIRCHED NOT ONLY HIS CHARACTER, HIS CITIZENSHIP, BUT ALSO DEFAME THE FIRST LADY MRS. OBAMA. SOMETHING THAT IN MY MANY YEARS I NEVER HEARD REGARDING THE WIVES OF OUR WHITE PRESIDENTS.Read more ›

My grandson actually read this book and did a report on one of the people mentioned. Thought it would wind up on the shelf with the rest of the books, but this one found a place on his desk. Good reader, recommend it highly...

Many of my students of all backgrounds have checked this book out of my middle school classroom library and have written good log notes that indicate to me that this is a good reference book to have available for them!

I teach my fifth grade daughter at home. We used this book as an add on to studying African-American history. Some of the content is not age appropriate. The minibios are short but are a great intro to many important people, some we had not heard of.

The stories are short and very informational, we are really enjoying this read.

The fact that it has pictures of each person really help put a face to the name. The reading level is perfect for my 11 year old. He has to look up some words which is helping him better understand the read and learn new words. Also practicing looking up things.
