Book Description
Afrocentric poetry that educates and motivates.

From the Author
History had always been my least favorite subject in school, mainly because as a black student in a public school system made up of white teachers, all I was ever taught about black people was that we were the descendant of slaves. Furthermore, I was lead to believe that the only contribution black people ever made to the world was the invention of peanut butter.

As an adult, I decided to research black history on my own. I've discovered that there is more to our history than slavery, and we've contributed so much more to the world than just peanut butter. With this book, I use poetic expression to share some of what I've discovered.
