Review Excerpts

“1619. The year the first enslaved Africans were brought to this country—before America was America. And, while it should be obvious that Black Americans have a rich history and have been major contributors to the development and progress of this country their contributions have been largely left out of mainstream education. So, it’s imperative and duty for parents of all racial backgrounds to fill in the gaps of their children’s knowledge, but especially parents of children of color. 39 Lessons For Black Boys & Girls is an essential and useful tool toward accomplishing that goal.” – Amazon reviewer
