Description



About the Book



With a story for every day of Black History Month, this innovative portrayal of those who struggled and strived to shape African-American history stuns with Charles Smith's powerful words and gorgeous illustrations by award-winning artist Shane Evans.



Book Synopsis



Each day features a different influential figure in African-American history, from Crispus Attucks, the first man shot in the Boston Massacre, sparking the Revolutionary War, to Madame C. J. Walker, who after years of adversity became the wealthiest black woman in the country, as well as one of the wealthiest black Americans, to Barack Obama, the country's first African-American president.

With powerful illustrations by Shane Evans, this is a completely unique look at the importance and influence of African Americans on the history of this country.



Review Quotes



"* Fuelded by childhood memories of hearing the same Black History Month stories about the same people and events told the same way over and over, Smith, sought to convey the importance and relevance of African American contributions and milestones in a fresh, engaging manner . . . An inspiring, fresh take on a perennial topic." --Booklist, STARRED REVIEW

"Succinct biographical info, included throughout, further cements the value and utility of the project, both in and out of the classroom." --Publishers Weekly
