Publisher Comments:

"This book tells the stories of African American teachers throughout history. You will learn about black teachers who faced personal danger when it was against the law for African Americans to read books. You will also meet amazing teachers who built schools with their own hands, discover how the first black college was started, and see why the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) says 'A mind is a terrible thing to waste.' African American Teachers will reinforce your appreciation of African American culture from its earliest beginnings."?Carole Hall Hardeman, Ph.D., Langston University

Here are twenty-five heroic scholars and educators, from colonial times up to the present. You will come to know their families and learn about the tumultuous times in which they lived, the remarkable hurdles they overcame, and the passion that sustained them. Find out how:Daniel Coker, born into slavery, courageously ignored the dangers of speaking out against slavery and became a teacher at Baltimore?s African School. Susie King Taylor, who learned to read in secret during the Civil War years, spent countless hours teaching black soldiers to read and write.Booker T. Washington, after toiling in a coal mine as a child, became one of the country?s greatest educators and built a college in which to train new black teachers.

W. E. B. Du Bois, one of the greatest scholars the world has ever known, founded the African American civil rights movement. Marva Delores Collins, founder of Chicago?s famous Westside Preparatory School, proved that every child could learn.
