This is one of the books they should use for Black History Month. Although
I am against Black History Month because it is OUR HISTORY. And it seems
that they consider Black History less then American History. ARE THEY NOT

This book was reportedly used as a textbook... in 1855! Mr Nell compiles government reports, court transcripts, media reports and first-hand accounts of children of Patriots to celebrate the achievements and the contributions made by Freeman to gain independence for America. This book dispels myths, such as every Black man or woman was enslaved, uneducated and were barred from holding office. It does prove numerous contributions were made towards the establishment of our country. Being a textbook comprised of accounts, and not written as a biographical tome, it is not an easy read. There does not seem to be a determined chronology or compartmentalization based on regions, feats or families. None-the-less, it is an important reminder that so much of our rich history has been lost, rewritten or ignored to the detriment of everyone.Was this review helpful?
