We live in a fast paced society where we get our news from the television and radio which give us snippets of information.

It is hoped that today’s African Americans who may have a difficult time identifying with United States history will read a fact or mini biography about a famous African American from this book and will want to know more about the person. It is anticipated that they will use the internet, a periodical, a newspaper, a biography, an autobiography or another book to learn more.Perhaps you are thinking, why is the study of African American history so important? Well, let’s think for a minute. We take all the things that we enjoy today for granted. We need to make sure that we all know the sacrifices that were made to provide the opportunities that we enjoy today. For example, we have the right to vote; we are able to attend integrated public schools; we are able to eat in any restaurant; and we are able to sit anywhere we want on the bus. Without the efforts of people like Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, Fannie Lou Hamer, A. Philip Randolph, and Thurgood Marshall, we would not be able to reap the benefits of these rights.Remember, just because we have certain rights today, we have not always had them. We assume that our right to vote will never be taken away from us. Well don’t be so sure! Our children are our future. Let's make sure they know their past in order to ensure that they do not “end-up” lost.

    The Black History Bowl: “Then and Now” American History as Impacted by African Americans

    We, as a race, are starting to lose identity with our past.  We have been given one month, February, the shortest month of the year to honor our history. The intent of this book is to tweak the interest of children and adults to study black history twelve months a year.

    Unfortunately, with the TV and videos, etc. people have lost the art of relaxing by reading books.  We live in a fast paced society where we get our news from the television and radio which give us snippets of information.   We have been conditioned that if we want to know more about the topic to go to the website.

     

    That is where this book comes into play. This book is divided into 8 sections, the military, medicine, religion, transportation, then and now, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, test your knowledge of African American Women in History and test your knowledge of African American History. It is hoped that today’s African Americans who may have a difficult time identifying with United States history will read a fact or mini biography about a famous African American from this book and will want to know more about the person.  It is anticipated that they will use the internet, a periodical, a newspaper, a biography, an autobiography or another book to learn more.

    In his 1933 book “The Miseducation of the Negro,” Dr Woodson said “When you control a man’s thinking, you do not have to worry about his actions.  You do not have to tell him not to stand here or go yonder.  He will find his ‘proper place’ and will stay in it.”  If you do not paint a fair picture of American history by including African American history, then you are controlling the way the African American perceives history. Dr. Woodson also said “Those who have no record of what their forebears have accomplished lose the inspiration which comes from the teaching of biography and history.”  Marcus Garvey said, “A people without knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.”
