The Black History Bowl – Mini Biographies of African Americans
List Price: 19.95
Available: January 2008
When I spoke at book signings for my first book, I found that people, in general, knew very little about many of the African Americans that I had on the display board. Thus, this second book in “The Black History Bowl” series was written to make people aware of the contributions that African Americans have made to American and World history.
The African American history quiz that is included in the book is divided into eight (8) sections. Each section begins with a worksheet. The worksheet is followed by short biographies of the African American history contributors. There is an answer sheet at the end of each section. In addition, note sheets have been included with each biography for you to use to take notes when researching and gathering information. Additional information on each African American can be found on the web site that is listed at the bottom of the page after the biography.
Also, included in this book is information on some points of interest that I think are important to the knowledge base of the average American. The information includes the African American holiday of Kwanzaa, the NAACP’s Spingarn Medal, and information on Juneteenth (the actual day when all slaves were freed). In addition, this book includes a section for Women’s History Month which highlights African American women from my first book. A timeline of African American history is also included.
It is hoped that you will enjoy reading the book as you continue to enrich your knowledge of the contributions that African Americans have made to history.
