ABCs of Black History (The)

A spectacular alphabet book filled with energy and hope and information. B is for "beautiful, brave, bright , bold, brotherhood..." , D is for diaspora, I is for "imagine, invent, innovative" (with pictures of Alivin Ailey, Gwendolyn Brooks, d j Kool, Madam C.J. Walker). It includes Juneteenth and Kwanzaa, scientists, artists, soldiers, leaders of all kinds. . P is for power and possibility. U is for unbroken, unshaken, unbound...but also for unfinished. X, of course is for Malcolm X. The illustrations are filled with energy and young ones. There is a very useful glossary and expansion in the back of the book. Wow!
