Publisher's Summary

We are living in a society where the accomplishments of many African Americans have been forgotten or erased. This audiobook is small tribute to many of these outstanding men of color. This book cannot even come close to recognizing the many achievements of these men but this is only the beginning of a lifelong committment to honor these great men's works.

An Informative Celebration of African American Men

I didn't like that there was no introduction or preface in the reading of this book. The narrator jump dove right in. An intro would have help to set the tone. What I did love was that for the more well known figures, the author went beyond some of the basic facts and stories that most people are privy to. He included some interesting details into the lives of Danny Glover, Jimmy Hendrix, Myles Davis...to name a few. Also, I like how he included black men from different professional sectors, such as education, politics, sports, entertainment, etc. This is a great reminder of the wealth of tenacity and ability that people--men of color possess.
