Sometimes history misplaces or forgets important people who dreamed, fought, served, made changes in our lives, and affected history's path. In this exciting new collection/revue, we are introduced through story and song to ten African Americans whose contributions to society, culture, our nation, and the world should be celebrated and never forgotten. Included are: The Soldier - Henry Johnson; The Activist - A. Phillip Randolph; The Journalist - John Russwurm; The Fighter - Jack Johnson; The Singer - Mamie Smith; The Film Maker - Oscar Micheaux; The Politician - P. B. S. Pinchback; The Preacher - Adam Clayton Powell; The Entrepreneur - Madame C. J. Walker; and The Explorer - Matthew Alexander Henson. The narrative script is a terrific teaching tool, providing interesting facts and information about each person and his or her contributions. What a terrific presentation for African American History Month celebrations, and a valuable resource for multicultural and interdisciplinary studies!
