ABOUT THE BOOKA vital stitch in the education of a child is their knowledge base about heritage. Although we pay tribute to African American History in the month of February, it is imperative for students to see the impact role models of color have on their daily life and existence year round. Providing exposure to the unsung African American leaders in our country is the ultimate educational gift to children and my humble attempt to recognize greatness in the African American community. It is my hope that this text brings African American greatness to life at a level our elementary age youngsters can relate to and understand. It is also my hope that this book celebrates people who children do not usual learn about in their day-to-day experiences and gives them the opportunity to appreciate African American greatness of the past and present. #AfricanAmericanLeaders
