Summary, etc.:
Black and African American role models have brought about change by using their gifts and passions to overcome societal barriers. There are many stories mainstream media and history have failed to mention that are inspiring, motivating, and educational. The achievements of the Black Americans included in this book range from athletic to artistic, literary to scientific. Their biographies vary greatly, but each one contributes to the course of Black history and its influence on the greater world.
