#1 Best Seller in Teen & Young Adult 21st Century U.S. History

Black Americans who have shaped their country and beyond. We are familiar with a handful of African Americans who are mentioned in American history books, but there are also countless others who do not get recognized in mainstream media. Their biographies vary greatly, but each one contributes to the course of Black history and its influence on America and the greater world. Their stories encourage teenage boys and girls, to find their own path to change.

Celebrate the successes made possible by diversity. African Americans have made history by challenging and changing the American landscape. This was accomplished not by shedding layers of originality, but by wearing their colors proudly and openly in the world. Growth has been made possible by a resistance to conformity and a fusing of cultures, African and American alike.

Monique L. Jones's The Book of Awesome Black Americans is more than a Black history book. It's a celebration of Black people. In this book, you will find:

  • Amazing role models who brought on change by using their gifts and passions to overcome societal barriers
  • Stories mainstream media failed to mention that are sure to inspire, motivate, and educate readers of all backgrounds
  • Testimonies that demonstrate how American culture thrives when it celebrates diversity and promotes inclusiveness

If you enjoyed books such as 100 African-Americans Who Shaped American History, Bedtime Inspirational Stories, Black Pioneers of Science and Invention, or Becca Anderson's The Book of Awesome Women, then The Book of Awesome Black Americans should be your next read
