About the Book
“When we think of the ‘hero’ we are drawn to images of success—wealth, strength, prestige, recognition, excellence. Too often, our society encourages us to seek heroes and heroines in the most obvious places and overlooks great heroes that toil outside the spotlight of mainstream America. But this book, AFRICAN AMERICAN HEROES & HEROINES, has a different message. It is, that despite the persistent racism in our culture and the overwhelming odds stacked against many African- Americans, heroes are plentiful. Frequently, these role models are not just successful in their capacity to earn money or fame; more importantly, they represent stories of the greatest human virtues: perseverance, courage, moral determination, and even love.”
