Description: This book celebrates the lives of seventeen Black leaders who have made outstanding contributions to the liberation, unity and solidarity of Africa and African peoples throughout the world. Inspired by the Pan-Africanists portfolio, a series of oil painting by artist Barrington Watson, the authors present the reader with succinct biographies of Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, W.E.B. Dubois, Marcus Garvey, George Padmore, C.L.R. James, Kwame Nkrumah, Julius Nyerere, Jomo Kenyatta, Haile Selassie, Paul Robeson, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Jr., Muhammad Ali, Patrice Lumumba, Malcolm X and Nelson Mandela. Not all of them necessarily belonged formally to a Pan-Africanist organization or ever used the term in descriptions of themselves. But the life of each one of them manifests the core values of Pan-Africanism. Together, their lives represent a powerful embodiment of the history of this social movement. (86 pgs) Young Adult
Ashay says,"This is an important book to introduce youth to Pan Africanist points of view and achievements. Here they will learn about the lives of some of the greatest voices in Black History. Along with a brief biography, are beautiful water color paintings of each leader. One of my favorite books for young activists. Perfect for the library and an excellent source for Core Curriculum.
