Publisher Comments:

Celebrating notable African Americans, this inspirational and thoughtprovoking collection of quotations covers a wide range of African-American heroes, from Sojourner Truth to Frederick Douglass, Thurgood Marshall to Jackie Robinson, Ella Fitzgerald to Harriet Tubman, Toni Morrison to Jesse Owens, George Washington Carver to Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks to Barack Obama, from profound historical figures to more current, popular ones, such as Oprah Winfrey, Nikki Giovanni, Spike Lee, and Snoop Dogg.

The book features more than 350 quotations memorializing the wisdom and strength of 200 notable African-American heroes. The sources for the quotations and an instructive biographical section are included as well.
