These twenty-one stories in African-American History make up an inspiring album of Americans of African descent who, against all odds, made significant contributions to American history (includes information on Barack Obama). Their stories are told in language that is meaningful to the students learning about these notable people and events for the first time. Each story is followed by an activity that will help students recall the major contributions of each subject. Frederick Douglass, Bill Picket, and W. E. B. Du Bois are just a few of the influential African-Americans to whom your students will be introduced in this fantastic book.
