With the current political climate in mid-2020, these three books are wonderful to help understand the struggles of African Americans throughout the years. These were recommended to my (mostly) white church congregation by a visiting African American preacher. He was (virtually) there to help us understand how we could partner with the African American community in these difficult times. He specifically called these three books as a great resource. They are phenomenally written and well worth the read.
I’m a homeschool mom and I teach my son a lot about our history... not just in February. I decided we are going to re-review many people’s lives and I came across this book, I had to order it. It was delivered today, on time. I cannot wait to start reading it. The price was great too!!! Parents, it’s important for our children to know their history... the truth! Amazon offers so many wonderful choices!
Booker T Washington, W.E.B.DuBois and Fredrerick Douglass are important historical figures in the black slavery experience. To me they are the Fathers of black American freedom and liberty from slavery. One cannot understand the personal and individual experiences that former slaves went through to gain their freedom until they come into contact with the lives of these former slaves. I highly recommend this book. You get three great books for the price of one, and the wealth of knowlege in this book would change your life forever, it has changed mine.
