Description

"Meet the little legends. They're brave. They're exceptional. They changed the world. An important book for readers of all ages, this engagingly written and beautifully illustrated volume brings to life true stories of black men in history. Among these biographies, readers will find aviators and artists, politicians and pop stars, athletes and activists. The exceptional men featured include choreographer Alvin Ailey, writer James Baldwin, artist Aaron Douglas, civil rights leader John Lewis, filmmaker Oscar Micheaux, inventor Garrett Morgan, musician Prince, and lawman Bass Reeves. The legends in this book span centuries and continents, but each one blazed a trail for generations to come"--
