This exciting introductory resource book is written with teachers, secondary school students, and homeschooling parents in mind. Its purpose is to provide readers with core information about the people, concepts, and events that have profoundly impacted Black Americans. Because of its structure as both an annotated dictionary and workbook, “Black, Brown, & Blue...” is an effective teaching tool. It broadens perspective by introducing views that emerged from Black leaders, writers, and heroes – ideas that are often omitted in traditional classroom conversations about American history. This book also discusses core concepts and areas where divisions arouse among Black leaders on issues such as education, race relations, economic independence, and whether Blacks would ever gain acceptance as full citizens. These divergent points of view add life to past events and enable us to identify the historic roots of questions that are currently being asked. Most importantly, “Black, Brown, & Blue...” helps readers, of all ages and backgrounds, to move beyond stereotypes by introducing the integrity and intelligence that characterized Black leaders. This information likewise exposes Black children to the rich heritage of which they are a part and the legacy of self-determinism that enables them to pursue their dreams. For all of these reasons, “Black, Brown, & Blue...” is a resourceful little book that broadens perspective and imparts to readers a desire to know more.
