Product Description

What famous city did Benjamin Banneker help design? Why was Harriet Tubman called the "Moses" of her people? Who were the "Men of the Massachusetts 54th"? Why was the peanut so important to the rebuilding of the south after the Civil War? Who delivered the famous "I Have a Dream" speech in Washington, D.C.? How did Sojourner Truth get her name? These are but a few of the questions answered in "Famous African Americans".Over the past two hundred years, names such as Frederick Douglass, Thurgood Marshall, Martin Luther King Jr., and Malcolm X, permeate our national consciousness. They along with other African-Americans, fought for American independence, the abolition of slavery, civil and equal rights. They served their country during wartime and helped rebuild the South's economy after the Civil War. One even became the first African American to sit on the Supreme Court. Many spoke out for the causes they believed in and many died fighting for these causes. Their place in American history must not be underestimated or forgotten. Their contributions can still be seen and felt today.
