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".

I was riveted to the pages of this book. Nearly every biography was captivating.

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.
