Meet the Author

J.A. Rogers was an anthropologist and historian whose pioneering work in Black Studies was little appreciated during his lifetime. Among his many books are Superman to Man and Sex and Race. World's Great Men of Color was completed in 1947 but was published only in a small private edition.

    Highly Recommended - Excellent reading for any race

    Gives a new (although it was written a long time ago, primarily in the 40s) perspective on the impact of people of color through the ages. Many names I've heard, but never realized they were "colored".

    Outstanding

    This book is well researched and very scholarly. J.A. Rogers has provided so much information on various african and personalities of african decent that one would believe his research was a lifetime of scholarship. Rogers was a remarkable scholar, yet like many others he is not given the credit he deserves. Even though he is dead and gone, his work is appreciate and i salute him for his massive work and great efforts. This book should be read by all who are interested in the missing, not talked about or disguised african personalities in world history.
