Pub. Date:
Bolden offers an insightful look at some of the most fascinating yet relatively unknown African American figures, from the first Africans to arrive on American soil to those who helped the United States land on the moon. Over the centuries untold numbers of black men and women in America have achieved great things against the odds.Pathfinders is a collective biography of sixteen American men and women of African descent who made their mark on American history: people who dared to dream, take risks, and create goals not only for themselves but also for others and the betterment of their society.Each profile includes several images, ranging from paintings and photographs to primary documents. The book ends with an author's note, timeline, bibliography and index.
