5.0 out of 5 stars Black and African history 101!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 4, 2018
Loving this book, 51 pages in and can't put it down. I've learnt so much about myself all ready. Confirming what I already knew, but also subatantiating things also. Definitely going to pass this on. I made a goal to learn more about black and African history. This is a bloody good start!
