Come along and join in the adventures you’ll discover in A Kid’s Guide to African American History. Participate in the historically based activities. Carve a miniature sandstone column similar to the one found in the ruins of a beautiful Ethiopian temple. Tell a Brer Rabbit story echoing the ones told in the South. Design a brand similar to the ones black cowboys used on cattle in the West. Learn about nonviolent protests, just like students during the Civil Rights Movement. As you do all these things and more, the story and the heritage of African Americans will come to life!

“A fascinating look at an aspect of American history that is often left out of history books.”
-Washington Sun
