Product Description

Hand in Hand is the story of ten men, each a link in a chain that spans the history of the United States. Following the various ways in which these men not only contributed to society, but did so while daring to withstand oppression, fight injustice, and overcome barriers, this resource presents an engaging narrative of African-American resistance and triumph.

Stories present the story of each man's life from childhood to adulthood, including the legacy left for the next link in the chain. Chapters move from the colonial period through the present day as students read lively narratives about Benjamin Banneker, Frederick Douglass, Booker T. Washington, W.E.B DuBois, A. Philip Randolph, Thurgood Marshall, Jackie Robinson, Malcom X, Martin Luther King Jr, and Barack Obama. An introductory poem; title page with each man's name and birth/death facts; a full-page, full-color portrait; and a detailed, interesting biography that highlights the positive effect he had upon society are provided for each chapter.

243 indexed pages, hardcover with dust jacket. Ages 9 & up.
