Overview

As Dr. Frederick Douglas Harper’s 12th book of poetry with prose, Tributes, honors and pays homage to both the living and the dead. There are tributes to exceptional human beings based on their miraculous creations or their sustained humanitarian services—exceptional human beings such as Helen Keller, Mother Teresa, Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass, Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Albert Schweitzer. There are tributes to exceptional human beings whom the author knows; those unsung heroes who have consistently sacrificed to help others. This book honors the dead who sacrifi ced much to benefi t or bring joy to others (e.g., Michael Jackson) or those who died unjustly at the hands of the unjust (e.g., Emmett Till). Also, there are tributes for special occasions (e.g.,birthday) and to persons in special groups (e.g., school or college graduates and outstanding athletes). Finally, there are tributes to two courageous animals (a dove and a dog) based on true stories of valor and character.
