Item description for Black History For Beginners (For Beginners) by Denise Dennis & Susan Willmarth...

What is Black History? Did you know what blacks were in Cortez's crew in Mexico, with Pizarro in Peru and Alvarado in Quito…that when Balboa discovered the Pacific Ocean, 30 black people were with him….that when Alarcon and Coronado conquered Mexico, black people were with them too?

Any misunderstandings between blacks and whites in today's society tend to stem from the misconceptions about blacks that have been allowed to thrive throughout the ages. The only way to help abolish stereotypes is to help present a more complete picture of the black people throughout history. Black History For Beginners covers a rich but often ignored history and chronicles the black struggle from capture and enslavement in Africa through the Civil Rights movement and up to today and the new and different kinds of struggles that black people face today.

Reviews - What do customers think about Black History For Beginners (For Beginners)?

Learning about Black History!  Sep 7, 2000
I purchased this book because I was not taught about black history in school. I know that there is a lot to know about black history, which is why I wanted a beginner's book. I looked through the book before I purchased it and noticed the illustrations and thought this book would be easy to read, and give me the basics of black history. This book gives some VERY BASIC facts about black history, but it didn't teach me much. As a matter of fact, you would already have to know a great deal about black history to even understand what the author is talking about, but it was not basic enough and did not go into enough detail. I guess black history is a subject that cannot be summed up in a small book like this, containing mostly illustrations. I gave this book 3 stars because it gives me a starting point to do more research on black history. If you do decide to buy this book, do not expect to learning anything from this book itself, but it will give you a starting point to do more research on such a broad topic.
