Inspiring African Americans: Black history makers in the United States, 1750-1984
This third installment of George L. Lees fascinating pen and ink sketches reaches out to include many famous people from the United States. Arranged chronologically (from Lemuel Haynes, a Minuteman in the Revolutionary War and later a Congregationalist minister, to present-day figures), over 150 cameo biographies accompany the stunning drawings and present both major and little known accomplishments of each of the African descendants. This is a wonderful resource for students, teachers, African American community leaders and the general reader.
