If you're looking to find out what Black History is or what it's all about, you'll find it in this book.  From the poem that describes what Black History is to the  poetic pieces on the Dreams of Slave Women and the legacies left by prominent African Americans, I think every reader will enjoy this book so much that they'll read it a few times over and over and share it.  You'll definitely  put this on your coffee table and brag about it to your guests. This book will make you a little smarter on African American history.  It's poetic and interesting too.
