Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author-illustrator Vashti Harrison shines a bold, joyous light on black men through history.

An important book for listeners of all ages, this beautifully illustrated and engagingly written volume brings to life true stories of black men in history. 

Among these biographies, listeners will find aviators and artists, politicians and pop stars, athletes and activists. The exceptional men featured include artist Aaron Douglas, civil rights leader John Lewis, dancer Alvin Ailey, filmmaker Oscar Micheaux, musician Prince, photographer Gordon Parks, tennis champion Arthur Ashe, and writer James Baldwin.

The legends in this book span centuries and continents, but what they have in common is that each one has blazed a trail for generations to come.
