Review:

"After reading this book I found the material to be educational in addition to

entertaining. The audience will no doubt attract youth and adults. It makes learning quick and fun." -- Thyra Echols-Starr, President, Urban League of Pal m Beach County

"Bel Monte's book brings to light for all Americans the contributions of many

African Americans to our nation's growth-heroes whose impact has heretofore been hidden or forgotten. -- Dana Cassell, President Cassell Network of Writers

"Kathryn Bel Monte has written an informative and inspirational book. The

brief biographies give an outstanding overview of the lives of some great Americans.

The book would be on my "must read" list." -- Sandy Whelchel, Director, National Writers Association

"Thanks for giving me the opportunity to acknowledge a professional who realized the importance of introducing African-American Heroes and Heroines to our youth" -- Addie L. Greene, Florida State Representative

"To succeed in today's world, our young people must know the role played

by their ancestors. For too long, the textbooks have either left us out, or portrayed us as non-players in the important developments in American History. [Kathryn I. Bel Monte's] book should help dispel

these notions, and help our young people understand that America is far bigger and better

than a European enclave. -- Charles Rangel, Member of Congress, D-NY

"When we think of the 'hero' we are drawn to images of success - wealth,

strength, prestige, recognition, excellence. Too often, our society encourages us to seek

heroes and heroines in the most obvious places and overlooks great heroes that toil

outside the spotlight of mainstream America. But this book, AFRICAN AMERICAN HEROES

& HEROINES, has a different message. It is, that despite the persistent racism in our culture

and the overwhelming odds stacked against many African-Americans, heroes are

plentiful. Frequently, these role models are not just successful in their capacity to earn money

or fame; more importantly, they represent stories of the greatest human virtues: perseverance, courage, moral determination, and even love." -- Timothy Shriver, President and CEO of Special Olympics International
