One day in the not so distant future, you will be able to say that you met the authors of Black History 365: An Inclusive Account of American History. These visionary men followed their dream to bring a textbook to life that provides a truthful account of Black history before and after enslavement.

After a two year journey, the book went to print on June 19, 2020 “Juneteenth”, which was symbolic of this purpose filled journey. You will be amazed by their story and marvel at your copy of the book.
